Lunch or dinner sushi tours across a variety of locations with a Private Guide
Vancouver is one of the best cities outside of Japan for sushi in terms of both quality and value. It's my favourite cuisine and I've sought out some of the top spots in the city, across a variety of price ranges, for you to sample the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer!
We'll duck in and out of 3-5 restaurants at our own pace, sampling to die for sashimi, the best brown rice sushi you've ever tasted, melt in the mouth mackerel, flame seared tuna belly & local sockeye salmon the colour of which will leave you dazzled! As well as the culinary experience, you'll get into the heart of downtown, get a glimpse into local life in one of Vancouver's famous beach neighbourhoods and witness the beautiful sea and mountain backdrops the city has to offer.
This can be conducted as a cycling tour or a walking and public transportation tour. We'll meet at the Waterfront Station and if cycling we will have a short walk to pickup our pre-booked bikes. Following this we will visit 3-4 sushi restaurants across the city, hand picked to meet your desires, budget & tour time (lunch or dinner).
Example lunch tour: to start we will venture down the famous Granville St. in the heart of downtown and begin our feasting at an eatery of exceptional quality! Next we'll head out of the hustle and bustle towards one of our focal areas, the beautiful, clean living, Kitsilano beach neighbourhood (20 minutes by bike), home to some of the best sushi restaurants in the city, all within close proximity to each other (up to 3 depending on time). For our final stop we will save the best for last and head back to the Waterfront for one of the top rated sushi spots (subject to availability which we'll determine beforehand) in Vancouver to wrap up the tour in an appropriate fashion!

With a couple of exceptions we will not reserve tables to allow for some flexibility to the tour to suit your needs. As a result there is a chance we will have to wait for a seat. This, or a busy service period may affect the tour length and number of restaurants we are able to visit. In the unlikely event we are unable to get into a restaurant I will find a suitable alternative nearby.
