The Tour Begins…

This 3-hour tour starts at Fisherman’s Wharf and ends on Government Street. We start the tour at Finest at Sea where we will try some amazing local seafood like candied salmon or smoked sablefish. This business has been operating since 1977 and has one of the largest fishing fleets in BC. We then head next door to Imagine Studio Cafe where we try some Bannock, a traditional First Nations dish of fried bread. We then head to Fisherman’s Wharf where we will sample poutine. You can’t come to Canada without trying this iconic Canadian dish! We also sample some handmade Hawaiian Pizza from Pirate Pizza. Not many people know this is a Canadian invention! Find out why. 

The Tour Continues…

We take a leisurely stroll through historic James Bay to the Inner Harbour where we will pass some of Victoria’s most visited sights including The Pendray Inn, The Legislature Building, The Empress Hotel and the stunning Waterfront Causeway. We will pause along the way for a very popular dessert mostly found in Western Canada called the Nanaimo Bar. We then stop at the historic Steamship Terminal for a unique maple syrup tasting. Canada is the largest supplier of maple syrup in the world! We head to bustling Government Street for a Beavertail and a quick maple infused chocolate from the oldest chocolate shop in Canada. We end the tour with a BC ice-wine tasting at Artisan Wine. Did you know that BC is now the largest wine producing region in Canada and that 95% of BC wine is consumed in BC! At the end of the tour every guest will receive a souvenir bottle of maple syrup and our exclusive Eat Like a Local discount card.
