My husband and I took this tour on the last day of our stay. This tour was so informative about history and amazing places where to eat. I wish we had taken this excellent tour on the first day of our stay. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He made us feel so welcome. I highly recommend this experience.0

Our guide Andy was friendly, polite and very knowledgeable about the foods we sampled and the history of the area. It was an excellent 2 hours and well worth the price! At each of the stops, the vendors were engaging and very happy to talk about their food and why they love Victoria!

Our guide Andy from Victoria Food Tours gave us a great overview of downtown Victoria along with the historical context. Really enjoyed the 7 food/beverage stops throughout the interesting route and he arranged for us to speak to the chef/owners to share their stories. A thoroughly enjoyable walking tour that I highly recommend!

Andy our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. All the stops were spread out evenly along the route, which made the walk manageable for older folks. Make sure not to eat a large breakfast if you go on the early tour. Lots of good bites along the way to fill up on! Thanks again Andy for a swell jaunt down memory lane.

My husband and I came from Missouri and this was one of the best things we did on our entire trip. The food stops were amazing and the food was so delicious. We even went back for more after the tour. Andy was so fun and active. You can tell he loves what he does and has a bond with all the places we visit. We could do this tour again and enjoy it just as much. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Victoria.

We weren’t sure what to expect when we signed up but we are so glad we did. Andy, our tour guide took us for (7) different tastings and all of them were great! We also got to learn a little about the history of each place we visited. Well worth the price
