The pandemic hasn’t just impacted restaurants. It’s also been brutal for businesses that offer food tours in the Lower Mainland.
One such example is Vancouver Foodie Tours, which was founded by Michelle Ng in 2010. In 2017, he made a Forbes magazine’s list of the nine best food tours in the world.
But for two years, Vancouver Foodie Tours went on hiatus due to COVID-19.
This month, however, the company relaunched with two deals: a Granville Island Market Tour and an Authentic Asian Eats Tour, which shows off the delights of Richmond’s food scene.
“Richmond is home to world-class Asian food establishments,” says Ng. “Our food tour experiences help ease language and cultural barriers, providing guests with an easy and inviting way to explore authentic Asian cuisine, history and culture.”
On Granville Island, visitors have the chance to experience everything from Lee’s Donuts to Benton Brothers Fine Cheese and Oyama Sausage Co. There are several other stops along the way, all with “VIP” access, in this local culinary hotspot.
