Customer satisfaction


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. Our 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.
