Gastown Walking Food Tour
Combine food, comedy, and Vancouver history on a Gastown gourmet walking tour led by a professional improv comedian. You’ll get the quirkiest stories and facts from Gastown’s ‘Wild West’ history, pausing frequently for tastings of flavorful local treats. Since this Gastown walking tour also takes in key Gastown landmarks, you’ll tick off must-see sites with an irreverent alternative to a traditional tour.
What to Expect
Meet an improv comedian guide in the historic district of Gastown, then set out on foot as you hear some little-known stories about the neighborhood.

Check out the Gastown Steam Clock—it really does run on steam power—as well as the ‘World’s Oldest Trading Company’ and other local landmarks. The tasting menu varies to keep the experience fresh and fun, but favorites include local craft beer, organic ice cream, pulled pork sandwiches, Canadian maple syrup, and a cheese cake that’s been voted the best in the city.

Throughout the tour, the guide will keep up an energetic dialogue about Gastown, Vancouver, and local food, and the walking tour concludes at the original departure point.

Not Worth the Cost

I have participated in 5+ food walking tours and this was the worst experience of all of them. We had a large group and the tour guide seemed too young to do this, unprepared, and disorganized. Several people had dietary requests (vegetarian and gluten free...More

Our tour started around 2.00pm. I'm not sure about other starting times but that information hopefully is available on the tour website. The Gastown Walking Food Tour is a really worthwhile experience. Doug
