SUMMER READY

Updated: May 30

Are you a foodie looking for a unique and immersive way to experience a new city? Look no further than a walking food tour. My tours offer a chance to explore the city's local culinary scene while also learning about its culture & history!


Thank you again for following along the last few years! I'm sorry I haven't posted in the last while, just after our August 2023 fires I had to put my head down and make sure I could do enough to survive into this year...


I'm sure like most entrepreneurs who make it this far, it sure seems surreal to be heading into year 4, so once again thanks to all my supporters from the bottom of my heart! I love showing guests my favourite spots in Kelowna :)

  4. What's Up Andrew?


1 - New Vendor(s):


I'm happy to say we will have Sun-Rype on board for this year with a little treat for all my guests. They're a proud Canadian brand, based in Kelowna, BC. They capture a little bit of the sunny Okanagan in everything they do, from the products they make, to the communities and initiatives they support. Many of you have seen the picture of me sitting on my Grandpa's tractor in his Oyama, BC orchard. I've been with him many a time in my life to drop off fruit there. Sun-Rype is near and dear to my heart, and I'm looking forward to sharing that with you all :)


Also, new to the tour this year is Sprout Bread! They're exactly what my tour is all about! Local owners, supporting local, and a locals favourite spot! This bakery is owned by Peter & Ava who opened it in 2018. Since then the organic-artisan locally sourced bakery has been ever expanding in their space inside Cannery Lane. Not only can you watch the bakers at work, you can enjoy a slow coffee on Slow Side coffee, or go upstairs to their groovy-throwback lounge/work area. From creme brulé filled doughnuts to outstanding bread their is something for everyone there. Exactly what my tour is about!


I'm thankful this year for all my wonderful guests, vendors, and their staff! Give these links a tap and check them all out.



2 - My Winter Getaway:


I hate to admit it, but I let these videos slip this fall after the fires so this is a collage of my winter getaway to my Dad's homeland Scotland, Malta, Amsterdam, Paris, and Arizona.


3 - My Favourite Local Hikes:


I know I walk for a living, but I go up for a hike at one of these three spots almost every week.


Only a few minutes from Downtown Kelowna is Knox Mountain it's stunning views (below) are only a 30 minute hike away. Whether you want to wander for hours, or get a quick 1-2 hour cardio blast, this hike is for you. Easy to moderate level.



Next is Dilworth Mountain which is close to Downtown Kelowna as well, but often forgotten. Easy to get to, and a nice way to spend an hour. The level of hiking here is easy.

Finally, about an hour drive from Kelowna down Westside Road you'll find Fintry Waterfalls & Campground. I went here in early spring, but it runs all summer if you are want to visit. Worth the drive! Moderate to Difficult, as it includes a lot of stairs.




4 - What's Up Andrew?:


Well this is year 4 already, I'm energized as ever, and ready to take my tour to the next level!


Also, as far as the tours go keep your eyes peeled as I am working on a joint offer with my amazing friends at Lakeside Eco-Sports. Hopefully as you follow along I'll be able to share with you as we go.


What a ride the first 3 years has been, I'm still loving life, and hoping to share how amazing Kelowna is with people for at least another 3 years!!!


Yours In Food Tours,
