Touring a city’s restaurants to discover regional cuisine is far more appetizing than touring a city’s schools to sample its alphabet-shaped cuisine. Indulge in fully developed local delights with today's Groupon to Whistler Tasting Tours. Choose between two options:
- For $25, you get a dessert tour for one (a $50 value) that kicks off at the Plaza Galleries.
- For $20, you get a lunch tour for one (a $40 value) that kicks off at Fire Rock Lounge.
Internationally acclaimed Whistler Tasting Tours send curious diners on palate-pleasing parades of the village's culinary sensations. Chip away a sweet tooth with the nine-stop dessert excursion ($50) featuring ice-wine truffles, locally made gelato, and a chocolate river guarded by descendants of Oompa-Loompas. Additionally, guests are invited to veer away from the sugar-laden to sample local cheeses, break the crust on a fire-branded crème brûlée, or inhale a sampling of Valrhona chocolate mousse. An additional cocktail portion of this tour is not included in this deal, but can be added for an additional fee.
Culinary nomads suffering from the midday munchies may seek solace in the leisurely lunch jaunt ($40) that pauses for gourmet pizza, Kobe beef sliders, a fudge tasting, a local brewery seminar, and three more gastronomic recesses. While not included with today's Groupon, this tour also offers an optional drinks addition for a cost. With the drinks option, both excursions include a bevy of beverage samplings unique to each tour, plus the thrill of champagne sabering wherein one lucky tippler gets to chop open a bottle with a sword at Bearfoot Bistro.
The Associated Press and The Buzz have both featured the Whistler Tasting Tours. The Vancouver Sun also featured the tours, and more than 100 TripAdvisors award Whistler Tasting Tours a perfect average of five owl eyes.
