Hi! We are a group of locals that own and operate an awesome food tour company called Off The Eaten Track. We LOVE showing off beautiful Victoria and exploring our local culinary scene. We have been running food tours for the past 5 years and we know all the best places to get a great meal. Bonnie loves pizza a little too much and has worked as a tour guide for over 15 years. Brenda has a weird addiction to historic salacious stories and has been in the hospitality industry for over 20 years Jason is an actor (a successful one at that) and also leads haunted ghost tours in the city so he knows all the best haunted sights. We are excited to meet you, show you are favorite places, and laugh over a good meal. INSTAGRAM: @offtheeatentrack
