Insider tour with great history and variety of local food scene.

Austin was a great guide, he's set up a growing and evolving tour of the local history of Gastown, as well as a wide sampling of the food there is to offer in that part of town. He has a warm nature that makes you feel comfortable right away. You feel like you're hanging out with a friend of a friend that wants to show you around.
