I would highly recommend A Wok Around Chinatown with Bob to everyone. I learned history of Chinatown and Chinese philosophy, culture and food. This was the best tour I have taken anywhere regarding Chinese culture. Bob is so knowledgeable that he brings history to life. To experience history and culture as it relates to food was amazing. Thank you Bob for making our trip to Vancouver memorable.

Bob was incredibly knowledgeable on the history and culture of Chinatown. More food sampling during the tour would have been appreciated. The food and guide were excellent.

We had a wonderful tour of Vancouver Chinatown with Robert. He is so knowledgeable, passionate and friendly. It is truly one of the best tours we had in vacation. A special mention for the visit at the Chinese garden and all the excellent food that we discovered with Robert. My husband and I are highly recommended this tour!

Walking and Learning and Eating and Drinking - Fantastic Tour!

This tour was so much fun, and I recommend it to visitors and locals alike! We (we two plus one other couple) discussed the historical and cultural influences of various countries on the foods of Asia, as well as the foods of the Asian diaspora. Fascinating! We started out at the Sun Yat Sen garden and talked about Chinese culture and concepts, and then we walked around and Robert talked about the architecture (historical and cultural influences), and took us to Chinese produce shops, meat shops, tea shops, herbal medicine shops, a bakery and more! The dim sun lunch was great, where he also spoke about meal etiquette and the origins of different dishes. He was always at the ready to answer questions about anything, and was so friendly and welcoming and just a pleasure to hang out with. The tour was easily the highlight of our visit to Vancouver.
Could not have been more pleased with this tour.

Unexpected lessons on how the Chinese culture relates to how and why food choices and customs have been established. A very well thought out and easily to follow trip through Chinese history and how food relates to everything. A dive into Chinese principles, medicine, customs and food. A great lunch and a few snacks along the way rounded out one of the best days in our entire 2 week trip.
