What is a Foodie?

A foodie is an affectionate term for anyone who enjoys food! Food lovers, food enthusiasts, food explorers and regular people – our tours are designed for everyone!

What are Okanagan Foodie Tours?

A new culinary experience is catching the attention of foodies at tourist destinations around the world. Enthusiasts are falling in love with “Food Tours” as a unique way to meet people, experience the culture of a region, and enjoy fantastic meals from a destination’s showcase eateries to hidden gems. We’re proud to bring that experience home to Kelowna as The Okanagan’s original walking food tour company.

We offer participants guided 3-hour walking and tasting tours packed full of amazing foods from local artisans along with a sprinkling of commentary to help connect you with the sights and culture of the region.

My Story

Picture 036
Hi, my name is Nancy Quinton – Founder and Experience Host with Okanagan Foodie Tours. After a 25-year corporate career it was time for me to venture in a totally different direction. After participating in food tours around the world I was hooked! I wanted to bring this globally trending foodie experience home to Kelowna. My insight into the history of the area coupled with a genuine fondness for customer service was the natural genesis of Okanagan Foodie Tours. Beautiful scenery, perfect weather, paired with a vibrant culinary scene provided a superb backdrop to introduce these unique tours to the valley.

As we begin our 10th season (time really does fly when you are having fun!), I have to thank my tour partners – the restaurant owners, managers, chefs and their teams. Without them Okanagan Foodie Tours would never have come to fruition.

This year we are focusing on group tours – corporate and personal. I look forward to sharing a little of our sights, stories, and, most definitely, scrumptious foods with new groups of locals and visitors.

Let’s ‘take your taste buds for a walk’ with the Okanagan’s original food tour company!
