As the holiday season approaches, thoughts turn to food, gifts, and perhaps, guests. What if you could cover all three bases in one amazing place? You can, with the help of a Vancouver Foodie Tour of Granville Island Market. These tours are organized in conjunction with Edible Canada, whose Bistro on the Island has become a go-to locavore hotspot for Vancouverites and lucky visitors.
Take a Vancouver Foodie Tour
The Vancouver Foodie Tour of Granville Island is a two hour walking tour of the best and brightest culinary lights operating at the Public Market. The tour offers ‘20 tastings, 10 stories, and 2 hours of Canadian delights.” Not only is this Tour a great gift for your favorite local foodie friend or family-member, it’s an excellent activity to do with visitors and guests over the holidays, creating wonderful memories and great experiences.
And remember the gifts? During the Tour, you’ll be presented with no shortage of possible food-themed gift ideas for everyone on your list. You can get a good deal of your holiday shopping done in just one day. A monthly dozen donuts for Dad from Lee’s Donuts? Boxes of freshly-made local ChocolaTas pralines? Cute containers of Sea to Sky flavored salts? Birch syrup? The choices are only limited by one’s imagination (and perhaps by one’s budget).
The tours are run daily, at a cost of $49 per person (remember, you’re eating your way through the Market). Pre-booking and reservations are strongly recommended.
