Thoughts

The Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour is a social dining experience that truly does highlight the very best that Vancouver has to offer. With a strong, diverse selection of venues and a very generous amount of food, attendees will be left happy and comfortable for a lunch time tour. From dim sum to wine & cheese and gelato, the three hours go by quickly as one-time strangers become fast friends through a mutual love of food and drink. Amongst the deluge of food tours that have popped up over the years, this one is definitely amongst the very best.
