BEST FOOD TOUR
Adam was our guide/host for an enjoyable afternoon of Tofino history and food/drink. We were able to sample local beer, champagne, as well as vegan donuts, the best EVER salmon chowder, authentic BBQ, smoked salmon, and oysters….all within a 4 block radius. We’ve done food tours in Europe, and this was definitely among the top two! Many thanks to Adam!
GREAT FOOD AND TOUR OF TOFINO
What an amazing way to discover Tofino and sample food from some of the best restaurants. We loved the walking tour where Adam pointed out some of the history of Tofino and answered our many questions. We have been to Tofino many times before and still learned so many new things about Tofino. The food – it was amazing! Being able to sample the food from a number of different restaurants was so much fun and helped us make up our mind about where to go for dinner the next night! Highly recommend heading out on a Tofino Food Tour!
A MUST DO IN TOFINO
We have been on several food tours around the world and this one didn’t disappoint. It was one of the hottest days in Tofino’s recent history so walking under the sun was a bit tiring but with Adam’s depth of knowledge, friendliness and just the right amount of engagement we had a fantastic time. Would recommend it to anyone that will be heading to Tofino. Especially on the first full day in town.
EXCELLENT INTRODUCTION TO TASTY TOFINO
I was really impressed with Kate & Adams walking food tour in Tofino. Not only do they have a tonne of local history to share, they’ve managed to arrange a well-timed tour around some of the best eats in Tofino, so you feel pleasantly full on great tasting plates & drinks. Really worth the visit!
Fantastic day out around the village of Tofino trying some of the best food the town has to offer paired with an informative walk around the downtown area looking at the history and culture of the area. Good for someone that is coming to Tofino for the first time or someone who has visited a dozen times.
This tour was a lot of fun! Adam was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and I learned some very interesting history of Tofino. The food was superb from all our stops. Started with a maple syrup, bacon donut and it just kept getting better! Never would have tried kelp beer if I hadn’t done the tour. A great afternoon and I would highly recommend this a “must do”if you’re in town.
