Do it! Great way to discover local restaurants and learn some history at the same time.

Our group of 4 really enjoyed our food tour. Brenda was very knowledge and took us to some wonderful “off the beaten track” spots that we likely would not have discovered. We ate a lot of food, savory and sweet and all delicious! Plus she recommended some other restaurants and happy hours that we checked out and enjoyed.

Visiting the different places was great but Brenda would ignore me if I said something to her. Like what she said was so important and if I made a comment. It was ignored. Felt disrespectful. And I let her know how I felt. There were 3 young ppl in the group as well, I think there was not good group cohesiveness.

Hello, This is extremely unusual feedback for Brenda. She has been working with us as a certified tour guide for over 3 years and she has never had a personal bad review. I am so sorry you didn't feel like a part of the group and ignored. Brenda and I will be getting together today to discuss what happened and see if there is some room for improvement on our end. We are glad you still enjoyed the tour and food stops included. Sincerely, Bonnie

We loved our tour guide, she was knowledgeable, friendly and it was as if we already met. We loved the wine, pastries, sweets, the cheeses and cold meats, tacos, salads and the unusual TEA!

This little tour is jam packed with great food, drink and inside information and we were very pleased we gave it go. Our knowledgeable and attentive guide, Brenda, has a terrific rapport with all the shopowners and restauranteurs along the way and we were treated with one delicious surprise after another. if you visit Victoria, be sure to take this tour early in your stay so you have time to go back and sample the wares again! We thoroughly enjoyed it!

We enjoyed our tour and the distance between locations was a bit long but reasonable. Not all the food we tasted was what we liked to eat, but s few things were very good. Overall we enjoyed our tour and the unique Antique Row area.
