This was a great tour trying a wide variety of Canadian/Victorian food and drink. It went at a gently pace, and was interesting, informative and very enjoyable.

Incredible tour of unique local establishments. Our guide Mary-Louise was a great host who provided knowledge and humour during our Knife and Fort tour. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to tour a bit of Victoria and taste the experience.
