From our Guests
“Meals make the society. The perfect meal or the best meals occur in a context that frequently has very little to do with the food itself.” – Anthony Bourdain
“Downtown Food & City Tour was Amazing! go on a lot of food tours. This one was incredible. I experienced new and inventive dishes from all over the world. I guide was funny and knew so much that was not typical. I appreciate the "little extras" she threw in. She also was funny! I highly endorse this tour in Victoria.”
“Excellent experience. My family and I took the tour in Victoria at the beginning of the fall season. It was very interesting and fun to visit the city and try unique and local food. I recommend taking this tour if it's your first time in Victoria. Lots of good food and information in 2-hour tour.”
“Getting to Know Victoria. I would strongly encourage those residing in Victoria plus those visiting Victoria to take this tour. It was a great way to learn about this city and its history...through food. Our tour guide was knowledgeable about each business we visited.”
“Great Combo of Historical and Culinary Information. We left with a list of places we wanted to go back to for full meals--more than we could possibly cover in our four-day visit--and Brenda offered suggestions for many other places that sounded enticing.”
