After traveling to 47 countries seeking out good food and drink, I decided to start a company that combined my love of tourism, history and food. I came up with the idea of guided walking food tours in my hometown and favourite city, Victoria, BC. Taste Victoria was born! I have experience in history, technology, and have been a pedicab tour guide, historical guide and have always been a serious foodie. Join me on an exciting adventure that will satiate your palate with local products and pique your curiousity by bringing the history of this vibrant city to life with light-hearted dialogue.

Great tour. Andy is very knowledgeable and easy to interact with. We missed the original meeting spot for the start of the tour, and we had nonissue simply giving him a call and catching up. He kept everyone well distanced and adhered to COVID guidelines which was much appreciated as a physician couple. Enjoyed his personal touches and stories and the enthusiasm he showed for his subject. A word to the wise: Arrive hungry. Doing a late morning holiday breakfast right before was definitely a mistake on our part!

The food tour was amazing! Andy is super friendly and knowledgeable about Victoria and the food places and the group was great. I had a wonderful time. Highly recommend and it is of great value since I wouldn’t have usually stopped by those places and tasted the food and drinks. Thank you Andy!

Andy did a really good job today. We really enjoyed the layout and obvious thought that went into planning the outing. It was a great mix of food and drink with a liberal sprinkle of local knowledge and humor. I learned a lot and will definitely return to many of these venues. Thanks for a job well done.

We had a wonderful time . We have been to Victoria many times but would not have found all these gems to visit on our own . The choices were delicious, varied and interesting . The history Andy gives of the city is also very interesting
