Gaetane, our host, is a friendly person with great stories and a good knowledge of the Valley. The tour was designed with our interests in mind and included a coffee shop which roasts their own coffee, a distillery, a... More

Pickup was on time and our van of 3 couples spent a wonderful day driving through the scenic Comox valley stopping at a diverse variety of local gourmet/artisan culinary establishments. Our tour started mid morning and our eager “foodies” were soon getting to know... More

It was a celebration for my birthday with two friends. We were picked up with the host's van and toured around the valley. It was Saturday, August 20 and our first stop was the... More

One Wednesday in August I especially enjoyed spending the day with a group of women touring food producers in the Comox Valley. The day started with Gaetane providing us with a reusable shopping bag complete with a pamphlet on the valley and an overview of the places we were going to visit. We learned so much over the course of... More
