What a great afternoon with Carlos. No-one could possibly leave this tour without having a good time. There were four different cuisines and four types of beverage (sangria, whisky sour, 3 wines and 3 beers)! We would highly recommend this tour and hope you have as much fun as we did.
Absolute must-do. In fact, we actually took *two* tours: the Gastown Tasting Tour followed by the Vegan Tour the next day. Lots of deserved praise on here for the Gastown Tour, so let me tell you about the vegan tour.
We did the Gastown Food tour with Hannah first - she was very knowledgeable about the history of Vancouver and found a really good balance between letting us chat, telling us about the restaurant we were in and the city as a whole.
Then we did the Richmond Dumpling Trail with Carlos, which was delicious! Again his knowledge and passion for Richmond and the food was really engaging and added to a very tasty morning.
I was with a group of ladies I knew, and we had such an enjoyable experience. Cassandra was a WONDERFUL guide – she shared lots of knowledge and extra bits told in between spots and bites. At each stop she told us a bit about the place, its ownership and other things we could try when we return.
What a wonderful experience to explore the Dumpling Trail with Vancouver Food Tour. Our guide Cassandra was knowledgeable and enthusiastic . The choice of restaurant was perfect and allowed us to taste many types of dumplings. I would recommend this tour to group of friend who want to share an authentic experience . I will be looking for to book other tours with Vancouver Food Tour.
