We were asked beforehand about dietary requirements and arrangements were made for them, which was really helpful. We really enjoyed the food, especially at... More

We did the Gastown Tasting Tour and were blown away by the friendliness of the tour guide Christina and the tasting of each of the 4 chosen restaurants. Can’t say enough wonderful things about Christina, she was... More

We had a fabulous time on our food tour with Christina. She was an excellent guide; very knowledgeable, energetic and engaging. The food was outstanding, we would visit all restaurants after the first again! Well worth the money!

I am a foodie by nature, but this was in fact my first food tour (and not my last!). I chose to do the Gastown tour because I absolutely love area and the vibe. Carlos was our guide, and he was fantastic. He knew so much about the local history and culture, I think that was my favourite part of... More

Christina, our guide was incredible. Really knew her stuff and engaging. We were not thrilled with all the food or restaurants, particularly, the first. We had a fun time and enjoyed the time and our time with Christina and her shadow Helen!

Am from Vancouver & got a gift certificate for this as a gift. Our tour ended up being only 4 people, which was great. We went to 4 different places, 3 of which i hadn't been to, so that was awesome. Short walk thru Gastown to the other venues, with Angelique as our guide, and got to learn a few... More

This was really fun! I live in Vancouver and had an opportunity through a Meetup group to do this tour at a greatly reduced price (thank you meetup!). The full price would have been too steep for me to afford. Anyway, we visited I think nine different restaurants/shops in just under three hours - lots of places I had never... More

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
