The tour guide was early, which was awesome. It was a rainy, cold Toronto day but our tour guide was still a ray of sunshine. He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a lot of the history and cultural info. The food was great. We were full when we left, couldn’t even eat dinner. We are so thankful that we picked this particular tour. He was very thoughtful and considerate. He even brought us ponchos.

A must for anyone visiting Toronto!

For starters, our tour Gide Jusep was a nice, friendly guy and very knowledgable. You could tell from talking to him that he was a real foodie, and that it wasn’t just a job to him. The tour it’s self was great, the food was the best we had during our time in Toronto! It was nice to hear the stories of Kensington market, of how it it became, to how it is now. All in all, a must do when visiting Toronto, highly recommended! If we ever come back it will be top of the list of things todo!
