Overview

Join us on a delicious guided 2-hour culinary journey of Fort Street, a historic yet growing culinary neighbourhood in Victoria. Once known as antique row, beautiful Fort Street is now home to the thriving tech community and home to beautiful boutique shops, quirky book stores, and tons of local restaurants. This tour is a great opportunity to discover a hidden foodie gem, buy some locally made food items, and meet the owners that make this off-the-tourist-grid neighbourhood a favorite among locals.

Know More about this tour

Meet your guide on Fort Street, a 15-minute walk from the Inner harbour, for your 2-hour foodie tour. In less than half a mile (1 km) of walking, youll visit seven local small businesses and taste more than 15 samples of local and diverse food. Learn about this historic and trendy district and meet chefs and business owners along the way.

The tour starts at Terroir Tea Salon for a unique tea tasting. You cant come to Victoria and not try some tea! Here we sample 4 unique tea blends curated from around the world by Tea Master Charity Hobbs in her modern and zen-like tea shop. Guests receive 10% off their tea purchases made on the tour. We then head next door to cute & quirky Choux Choux Charcuterie for some cured meats, homemade pates, and international cheeses. This European-style deli has been operating for over 10 years on Fort Street and is a local favorite for picking up a picnic or dinner staples.

The tour then visits Tulip Caf for a Piadina, an Italian street food sandwich. Megan and her family are from Iran and they infuse their international cuisine with Persian flavors. Nestled next to the iconic St. Andrews Cathedral, we take in the views of this monolithic church built in 1897. Next, we visit Yalla for some mind-blowing falafel, hummus, and shwarma. This casual Middle-Eastern hot spot is the passion project of two very well known local chefs responsible for some of the top eateries in Victoria. Next, we sample some authentic tacos inspired by Sindys grandmother from Guadalajara. Our next stop is a bit unconventional and combines a plant store with a foodie stop. They dont call Victoria the city of gardens for nothing! We end the tour at one of the best bakeries in the city for some French-style pastries with an Australian twist that happens to be located next to the iconic Russell Books, one of the largest and most popular used booked stores in Canada.
