Hi! We are a two passionate locals that own and operate an awesome food tour company called Off The Eaten Track. We LOVE showing off beautiful Victoria and exploring our local culinary scene. We paused our tours during Covid but now we are back and are committed to providing a safe, fun, and authentically local experience.

We have been running food tours for the past 8 years and we know all the best places to get a great meal. Bonnie loves pizza a little too much and has worked as a tour guide for over 15 years. Brenda has a weird addiction to historic salacious stories and has been in the hospitality industry for over 20 years! Together we love showing off our city and taking guests to the best hidden gem restaurants we know and love.

Brenda was a fabulous host, knowledgeable, and fun. You could really sense the connection she had with the venue staff/owners. I wish I had the ability to describe food and experiences the way she did, and everything was delicious as well as so interesting to hear the story behind what we ate and the venue it came from. Loved this experience.

This was a great tour. Despite being a Vancouver local, and having visited Victoria a dozen times- we definitely learned a lot. From new hidden gems to architecture and fun facts- this is a tour not to be missed by tourists and locals alike.
