"Much more than a food tour! - This was a great time for the whole family! We were only in Vancouver for a few days and wanted to see some of the different neighborhoods. This turned out to be a great way to do that. We got a nice walking tour of the shipyards: a nice, easy walk at a comfortable pace with lots of stops for unique food from this fascinating Vancouver neighborhood. Our guide, Kelsey, had an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of the area, and was clearly passionate about the subject, and made the experience really fun for all. The stops for food were spaced out nicely, and each stop had a very different taste of what Vancouver has to offer. It must be difficult to time out the stops on the tour so perfectly, so that everything is ready right as the group arrives, but Kelsey made it look easy. Our special requests were easily accommodated (one vegetarian, and the kids were too young to drink alcohol), and great care was taken to make sure everyone had a great time. We enjoyed this tour immensely, and can't wait for an opportunity to do it again, and maybe try the Gastown tour as well!"
Phenomenal Tour! Tripadvisor review: North Vancouver Shipyards Food Tour
Our experience on the Shipyard Food Tour was genuinely remarkable. Kelsey, our guide, was exceptional in her knowledge, humour, and ability to connect with us. The various stops we visited offered delectable treats, and the historical context and drink options made the 2.5 hours unforgettable. We have also been on the Gastown food tour, and each location had its unique charm, with tour guides who made it feel personalized. These tours are unquestionably our preferred way to experience Vancouver.
