DON'T BE A TOURIST, BE AN EXPERT FOODIE EXPLORIST
Victoria is a mecca for talented chocolatiers and turns out we also have some gorgeous places of worship. So let's get biblical and indulge in some sinful chocolate while learning about some of the most historic churches in the city.

ON THE MENU: an assortment of chocolates from two iconic Canadian Chocolatiers (Roger's Chocolates & Chocolats Favoris), an assortment of chocolate macarons, a unique savoury dish, a chocolate tart from one of the city's most famous bakery, and a mind blowing drinking chocolate from a modern chocolate collective.

Make new friends, meet local business owners, hear stories about history, get amazing insider tips about where to eat next, and avoid tourist trap eateries with the help of a local guide.

THIS TOUR IS VEGETARIAN!

Hi! We are a group of locals that own and operate an awesome food tour company called Off The Eaten Track. We LOVE showing off beautiful Victoria and exploring our local culinary scene.

We have been running food tours for the past 5 years and we know all the best places to get a great meal. Bonnie loves pizza a little too much and has worked as a tour guide for over 15 years. Brenda has a weird addiction to historic salacious stories and has been in the hospitality industry for over 20 years . We are excited to meet you, show you are favorite places, and laugh over a good meal.

Where you'll be

We start the tour at the historic Steamship Terminal then stroll along historic & bustling Government Street where we will sample from two chocolate shops. We linger in the downtown core for more chocolate and a visit to St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church before heading to the Fort & Blanshard Corridor. Here we will visit 2 more places of worship and 3 local small businesses serving up delicious chocolate treats! We end a few blocks away from start

We had a really nice time with Brenda. With the snow we were the only people our today which made it more intimate. Even with stores being closed and Covid restrictions we found places available anyway and had lots of chocolate treats and a nice tour of historical Victoria.

Brenda is a wonderful guide. She was a great historian and made sure to create a tour that was fun and educational. She was an excellent speaker and made you feel like you were hanging out with a new friend. The chocolate was excellent and it was fun to get to choose your own during a few of the stops. I’d highly recommend this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. There was a good balance of eating amazing chocolate dishes and history. The church tours were so informative. Bonnie was so knowledgeable about the history of Victoria that she was able to answer the many questions we had about other areas of the city, too. The chocolate experience was equally informative - and delicious!
