Dina (our guide) was great. She was welcoming, fun, and patient. It was a fun afternoon to explore some local restaurants with pairings and learn the history of the area at the same time. We really enjoyed it.

Lots of tasty food, interesting information about Gastown history and tips for restaurants and sights. I went back to Nicli later to have full portions of the salad and the pesto pizza! Tracy was a great guide and I was happy that I chose this tour for my b-day.
