Andy offers a great tour that highlights his deep commitment to the community and the businesses they make his neighborhood shine. His passion for Victoria, China Town, and food is obvious in his presentation and his relationships with the restaurants, bakeries, pubs, and other locations included in the tour. And you won't go away hungry! Well worth two hours of your time and the cost is a bargain.

What a great food tour - a mix of historical spots and newcomers, sweet and savory, and fancy and casual spots to highlight the breadth of the local food scene and character of Victoria. Andy is fun, knowledgeable and passionate about his city - it was the perfect combination! I was a bit skeptical when my husband booked that this could be a cookie cutter food tour with some cursory little tastes at touristy spots, but this was anything but! He informed us up front that the tour is about 1200 calories - so definitely a full meal. We didn't need dinner even though the tour is 2-4pm. Would highly recommend!

We enjoyed our food tour with Andy! It was an informative tour, with food as the main star, and history about the restaurants and Victoria woven throughout. It's evident that Andy has developed strong relationships with the local businesses, as staff and owners took the time to do demonstrations or talk to us about their restaurant. Andy was a great guide; set clear expectations, let us know when bathrooms/water would be available, and seemed to be very mindful and respectful of taking up time/space in the restaurants.
I won't list all of the local restaurants as to not spoil the tour, but as you can see from the pics, it was a nice variety of savory/sweet and food/drinks, as well as food from different regions.
We did this tour on our first day in the city and revisited some of the restaurants during our stay. They were excited to hear that we were visiting after our sampler from Andy's tour. Thanks Andy!

This tour was so fun! Not only was the food good, but we got an awesome history lesson of Victoria. We visited spots that we wouldn't have probably gone without this tour. The guide, Andy, was insightful and funny and had some awesome food recommendations for us visitors in town. Highly recommend!

A fun walk through Chinatown, Old Town, and down to the waterfront of Victoria. Small group of congenital travels followed our guide through the streets and alleyways, stopping at 7 different locations for samples of their food and brief conversations with several of the proprietors.

If you're not sure about a tour, this one is for you! My eleven year old son begged not to go and had a wonderful time. My husband wasn't sure he would enjoy it and loved it -- super impressed. I booked it and I wasn't sure I'd feel it was worth the price, and afterwards, I felt it was a great deal! We all recommend this tour!! It's a few steps through a beautiful neighborhood in between each treat. Plenty of water and facilities. Very comfortable and fun.
