Really fun tour!
Oct 2021
I loved the tour! My sister was visiting and she likes to eat :-) Since I live in Victoria I thought maybe I would find some places where I had never been. I had never been to any of the places where we went even though I've passed them many times. We had a great mix of snacks and I was full by the end. I will definitely return to some of them.
Thanks Andy for the great time!

Oct 2021 • Couples
Andy was a phenomenal guide! We learned the history of the city and got to try fantastic local spots we wouldn’t have found on our own. Everyone should give this a try - even if you’re local. We really enjoyed ourselves. It was a great afternoon outing on our honeymoon! Thanks!

Andy led a fantastic tour filled with history and good food! Would highly recommend this tour for anyone who is visiting for the first time as it gives a good outline of the city, its history as well as the good food/drink it has to offer! Also a fantastic experience for any locals wishing to learn more about their city or find some hidden jems among them. Andy was fantastic and made the tour exceptional.

I’m a local and did the tour with my nephew who was visiting from Alberta. Great learning and overall excellent experience for both of us! Andy had some great stories about the history of China Town and the historic district, which he paired with excellent food tasting. The people we were with were friendly. All in all a great couple of hours. Highly recommend!
