This tour was fantastic. Dina, our tour guide, was fantastic. She encouraged our group of 14 to mix and share our experiences. The four restaurants were excellent. They were all high quality establishments with excellent food, wine & beer.

Hi SeanSed, I'm thrilled to hear that your group enjoyed their jaunt through Vancouver's birthplace and oldest neighborhood! Gastown is our city's #1 foodie district, and we love sharing some award-winning favorites that showcase what Vancouverites consider "Canadian comfort foods" - local, seasonal, sustainable ingredients in the hands of many cultures. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a rave review of your time with Jesse. We hope to have the chance to #eatthemap with you again soon! Until then, happy feasting :)

Hi EmilytheGeek, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a 5-star review of your time on our Gastronomic Gastown Tour. I am so pleased to heat that you had a great experience, and that you are interested in joining our other foodie adventures. As a local myself, I was completely shocked at how little I knew about the featured neighborhoods - the commentary not only educated me on the history of each area, but also on how to make the most of my time there. I now consider myself a Public Market connoisseur and take pride and pleasure in navigating the hustle and bustle of the various vendors. Thanks again for your rave review - we hope to eat with you again soon!
