Gastown is Vancouver’s hotspot for drinking and dining! But don't go it alone – join a local (like us!) to easily navigate the cobblestone maze of restaurants and cocktail bars. On this 3-hour tour, you’ll find out what it means to “eat and drink your way” through Gastown. You’ll get a full progressive meal, a detailed foodie map, and special dining discounts! We’ll meet you at the Gassy Jack Statue and there’s no looking back! We’ll take you through nooks and alleyways to sit down for seriously delicious food and drink. We’ll stop in 4 of our all-time favourite restaurants – they’re 100% locally-owned spots that make Gastown Gastown! We get to skip all the lines on this tour! When we sail in and sit down at Tuc Craft Kitchen for Pork Belly Crackling, Tempura Bacon Eggs, and Parsnip Fries, you’ll see exactly how great this is…especially with a glass of local wine! If you’re keen to appreciate Gastown as only the locals do, we’re passionate about sharing Gastown’s true (and evolving) story. We share the good times and the riots, the old vs. new architecture, and the complex social balance. It’s wildly interesting and goes really nicely with craft beer, pizza, and cocktails!
Dina, Jesse, & Friends
We’re a group of food-loving Vancouverites who believe that food is the best way to experience a place! 8 years ago, we began hosting Vancouver Foodie Tours as a way to share what makes Vancouver the delicious and diverse city that we love. Together, we’ve hosted over 1000 tours and 20,000 guests! It took a few hundred hours to plan, but our Gastronomic Gastown Tour combines insanely good foods with in-depth Vancouver history, heritage architecture, and local insights. Gastown is so complex, beautiful, delicious, and exciting -we can’t wait to show you around! We also host the "All Things Canada on Granville Island" Airbnb Experience and other Foodie Tours in Vancouver. For a full look into who we are and what we do, check us out at foodietours.ca! - Dina, Jesse, and Vicky :)

Gastown is Vancouver's #1 restaurant district and the city's most-historic neighbourhood. Because of the cobblestone streets and complex alleyways, most visitors only see the one street of Gastown with the Steam Clock. We'll guide you through Gastown's maze to reveal unique restaurants, cocktail bars, and delicious hidden gems. Along the way, we'll explore old and new architecture and take an in-depth look at Gastown's evolving history.
We spend 10-15 minutes outdoors between restaurants. In Winter, it's best to bring an umbrella. We may be joined by other friendly foodies - on a busy day, we may have up to 16 guests in our group!
