Sean was an excellent guide. The tour took a little bit longer than expected due to a few people having trouble finding the starting location. Sean took his time to make sure that they could locate the group and started the tour. He was informative and made sure he interacted with everyone in the group. If you’re in Vancouver, I highly recommend that you book this tour.

We throughly enjoyed the tour. Only suggestion is that there be 2 pieces of chicken and cauliflower for tasting so that one can appreciate the taste more. Sean was our tour guide and he was great too. Price is reasonable, Recommended

Sean was a wonderful guide. So friendly and informative. Food was great but would was disappointed in that we didn’t get to taste any cheesecake and the Flying Pig was closed due to a recent fire

So much food! You definitely get value and it was very interesting with lots of historical references.

Great experience; would highly recommend to other travellers.
