This was one of the best tours I have ever experienced. Our marvellous guide, Ed, has lived in Vancouver his entire life and was able to share so many stories of the history of this amazing city. Ed was energetic, amusing, well-informed and so thoughtful concerning the needs of his passengers. My husband and I have some mobility difficulties, but he helped us to keep up with the group. Ed seemed to know people in every location, at every stop, and we were ushered through lines quickly and promptly. The trip was so excellent that we decided to remain with the group for an extra add-on to the trip.
Not only do you get to eat some great food and try great local beer and wine in some excellent establishments but you also get to learn a whole lot about the history of Vancouver. Tour guide Brent was excellent with his knowledge of the food, and history he also explained everything so well and is an excellent story teller. Highly recommended!! Word of warning don’t eat before this tour and if your planning dinner after it plan it to be a later dinner. I was full as a boot by the end!
This tour covers a lot of ground. We saw lots of downtown without having to walk it. We had lots of stops including Granville island And Stanley Park. Our guide Jeff was amazing. The Capilano bridge was scary but fun. So much to see and do at that attraction.
More info as to how to navigate Granville market to make most of short visit. Guide was great and loads of info, could add look to the right or left as was describing landmarks as we drive by. That why can see them and not miss as didn’t know where to look.
Tour guide Brent brought us to multiple different locations where we were given tasting portions of a variety of foods, beverages and desserts. Along with the historical anecdotes, this tour was both informative and delicious. 10/10 would recommend.
