This was an awesome experience. Hearing the chef’s or owner‘S stories really added to the tasting. The history tidbits were just right: very interesting and just long enough to keep us all interested. The time just flew by.

I enjoyed the tour. Andy was amazing and he offered a variety of food and drinks. We started with fish tacos and the sauce was perfect. The meals were all amazing plus it was a small group. I also like the fact that i could join this as a solo traveler. The highlight was definitely the beer and chocolate at the end.

Andy was a great tour guide. He enthusiastically shared his knowledge and love for the history and food of the city. The sampling stops he selected were first class and the sample sizes sufficient to get a real taste without feeling bloated by the end of the tour.

Victoria Food/History Tour

Andy was a great tour leader. Added lots of small bits of history to the area that never would have picked up on just walking around. Food tasting portions were more than adequate. Went to places, I never would have stopped. GR8 value for the money.

A Victoria Must-See ...

, Sep 2021
Andy was energetic, delightful, entertaining, full of interesting anecdotes on local history (complete with antique photos) and very patient ... we were late to the meeting point, but managed to unite with the tour in progress at the 2nd or 3rd destination ... each of the remaining destinations were unique and truly enjoyable ... each a stop worth more of a visit at a later time ...

Hello Lance, Thank you for the excellent review and feedback. I am so glad we managed to get you to the tour after the late arrival and that you still enjoyed the history and food so much. I hope you got a chance to enjoy the rest of you short visit to Victoria and had a safe flight home. All the best, Andy
