Tour Vancouver's foodie hub with a local who knows it intimately


We will explore the city's foodie hub, Granville Island, to experience it like locals do. Whether your interest is in maker and artisan products, gourmet accoutrements, the best produce/fish/meat/imports at the Public Market or craft beverages (including craft beer, sake, spirits made on the island, and a fine wine boutique), we've got you covered! From fresh doughtnuts to chewy bagels and flaky pies, from hearty soups to rustic charcuterie and local cheese, from hip aprons and artisanal brooms to chic pottery, so much is made near here! I can also introduce you to some lesser-known corners of the island: cheffish spots like a waterside haunt for luxe seafood towers, a taco shack on the fishing docks, a tucked-away cocktail lounge with a killer summer waterside patio. . . even a top culinary school and the floating houseboats where locals live! I can also direct you to evening entertainment on the island, from stand-up comedy to music and theatrical performances.
