After traveling to 47 countries seeking out good food and drink, I decided to start a company that combined my love of tourism, history and food. I came up with the idea of guided walking food tours in my hometown and favourite city, Victoria, BC. Taste Victoria was born! I have experience in history, technology, and have been a pedicab tour guide, historical guide and have always been a serious foodie. Join me on an exciting adventure that will satiate your palate with local products and pique your curiousity by bringing the history of this vibrant city to life with light-hearted dialogue.

Great Food, not to much, not to little! Make sure to skip a meal before your your tour to leave room for all the yummy tastings❤️

My husband and I had a really great time on the food tour with Andy. Andy was a super host and gave lots of information about the history of the area and the places we visited. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting (or living) in or around Victoria.

My 14 year old daughter and I had a fabulous time on the food tour with Andy. We've visited Victoria many times over the years and have our favourite places - but we learned some new ones through the tour. In fact - the very next day after the tour we returned to and ate at 3 of the stops! Andy was a great guide with lots of enthusiasm and interesting information to share about Victoria. Loved the tour and highly recommend!

This tour is a 'must do' on your first day in Victoria, so that you can re-visit your favourite stops on subsequent days. This is a tour for vegetarians too! Seriously delicious food that I'm still thinking about, and I'm a picky eater. Andy is a great guide, telling insightful stories along the way. The pacing and food quality/quantity were excellent.

Don't miss this one. A must do, whether you are a long time resident of Victoria or a tourist. An excellent experience with a knowledgable host. Each stop had a story. The tastings were hand selected by Andy. Thank-you for for a great experience. I will be sure to tell all my friends!
