Taste the finer side of Whistler on this 4-hour progressive dinner tour. From a 15,000-bottle wine cellar to an award-winning 5-star restaurant, your professional foodie guide will lead you on a food journey like no other. Unlike many food tours, this tour offers four full courses, such as British Columbia's famous wild salmon and an amuse-bouche created by Canadian chef Melissa Craig, who won honors as the country’s top chef in 2008. Instead of simply going to one restaurant for a special dinner, try a variety of fabulous, upscale foods during an evening you won’t forget!

Highlights

  • Excellent value for money
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Dinner included
  • Small-group tour
Whistler is known for amazing skiing, ample summer activities and award-winning restaurants. Take a break from the outdoor activities and refuel with four full courses, plus extra samplings, on this 4-hour progressive fine-dining tour.

Your professional and passionate foodie tour guide will meet you at a designated spot and lead you to your first stop, the famous Bearfoot Bistro. This bistro is home to not only Canada’s 2008 top chef, Melissa Craig, but also to a record-breaking 15,000-bottle wine cellar. In the cellar, learn how to saber a bottle of Champagne like a pro (in other words, open the bottle with a sword!). Napoleon started the tradition of opening Champagne with a saber in the late 1700s, and your host will teach you how to do it so you can impress at your next dinner party.

From here, make your way to an upscale steakhouse for the evening's select course, plus a blind wine-tasting seminar where you'll find out just how good your palate is. Then head to a warm, inviting Italian eatery for your main course. This restaurant continually wows critics and diners alike, and it always offers a delectable meat, seafood and vegetarian option from which you can choose.

After enjoying the savory portion of your evening, move on to the sweet finale. Stop at Roger's Chocolates for a taste of the icewine truffles, a local favorite, and then finish your tour with the chef's choice seasonal dessert at a casual, chic lounge.

To make this evening even more special, upgrade to include wine pairings, which include a 3-ounce (90-ml) glass of sparkling wine (from the bottle opened during the sabering lesson), a 3-ounce glass of either red or white wine at the next two restaurants, and a 1-ounce (30-ml) glass of BC's famous icewine at the last restaurant. Additional wine, beer and cocktails are available for purchase throughout the tour.

This was a great tour with delicious food at every stop. Luke was a great tour guide. I added the wine pairing and glad i did. Definitely worth the money.

We ended up having a private tour with our guide Christy. Our food was delicious and it was fun to sample different restaurants, we particularly enjoyed our main course at Quatros. Christy was very knowledgeable about Whistler and gave us tips for the rest of our stay.
