Dina, Jesse, & Friends
We’re a group of food-loving Vancouverites who believe that food is the best way to experience a place! 8 years ago, we began hosting Vancouver Foodie Tours as a way to share what makes our home city so delicious and diverse. We actually have a little “Foodie Headquarters” on Granville Island - our “inside scoop” is next level! Our tours combine insanely good foods with history, architecture, and local insights. And of course, there’s us! The fun, friendly, delighted-to-be-a-part-of-your-trip locals, who can’t wait to show you around! We also host the "Boozy, Foodie, Historic Gastown" Airbnb Experience and other Foodie Tours in Vancouver. For a full look into who we are and what we do, check us out at foodietours.ca! - Dina, Jesse, Lydia, Nadia & Lisa :)
