    Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience. We understand this was a very frustrating experience and we do apologize for this unfortunate event. Our policy is to never cancel a tour without contacting our tour guests in advance but in your case this did not happen. There was a misunderstanding between the owner and employee about the tour not operating. We agree the communication could have been handled better. We encourage you to call 1 800-653-5070 or email our operations manager maria@tastevancouverfoodtours.com to discuss further.
