Best food journey in Victoria

This was the highlight of our trip to Victoria! Andy’s passion for his city makes this food journey a special event. My favourite part was his focus on local business and having the owner to speak to the group about the dish they have prepared. I would do this again in a heartbeat!

Andy was really personable and knowledgeable. I don’t think I would have found some of the places on my own, so I appreciated his insight! He also gave us some good tips at the end for other places to check out that weren’t on the tour. Would recommend!

What's Better than Food...and History?

This tour is one for everyone. My recommendation is make this the first thing you do in Victoria. Andy takes you through the city of Victoria. Starting at the Public Market and ending at the Information Center. It is a great way to get familiar with the city. Moreover, the food options are well thought out. Some heavy food, sweats, healthy food and even a stop for some beer. My girlfriend and I used one of the stops as our dinner stop that night. Also Andy is full of positive energy and is clearly passionate about what you does. He would recommend other of his favorite restaurants in the area for you as well. It really is a great way to start your Victoria trip.

I’m not always a very creative solo traveler, but I took a risk and signed up for this tour. And I’m so glad I did. Our guide was marvelous and I met some wonderful people. Our tour was a great way to be introduced to Victoria and to experience a few of the city’s best eateries and watering holes. I highly recommend this tour. Show up hungry, though!

My husband and I took this tour on the last day of our stay. This tour was so informative about history and amazing places where to eat. I wish we had taken this excellent tour on the first day of our stay. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He made us feel so welcome. I highly recommend this experience.0
