Our family of seven, ranging from teenagers to grandparents, booked this celebratory food tour with Alexandra Gill and each and every one of us raved about it. The teenagers were able to take an active role with the chefs and waiters, who made them part of the experience. The adults were awed by the beauty of the restaurants, the excellence of the food and drinks and by Alex’s extensive knowledge, which she eagerly shared with us. Alex was a stickler for detail, especially paying attention to food preferences and allergies. The tour was a wonderful experience and is highly recommended. Top-notch in every way!!”
We live in Vancouver and had been to all these restaurants before, but never like this. It was a very impressive experience. Special dishes off the menu, very detailed explanations and VIP service… everyone else in the restaurant thought we were celebrities!
A truly unique offering. We experienced some of Vancouver’s most delicious dishes, while gaining culinary and cultural insight from one of Canada’s most informed and impactful food personalities.
