What You Can Expect

Culinary Walking Tour of Greektown or Leslieville

Greek Spinach Pie

Select from either Greektown or Leslieville, then prepare to be amazed by some of the finest food Toronto has to offer.

In Leslieville, embrace the essence of a community that began as a small village back in the 1800s and has since completely transformed itself into one of Toronto’s hippest new neighborhoods — as well as the headquarters of the city’s burgeoning film industry. Walk along historic Queen Street East, sampling Ontario wines, sustainable seafood, organic artisan breads, homemade shortbread and ice cream and a light lunch at one of the area’s most-popular restaurants. Along the way, learn about Leslieville’s history and culture and how its local citizens helped to shape the city of Toronto as it exists today.

In Greektown, experience the largest Greek neighborhood in North America and one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Toronto — an area bustling with outstanding restaurants, boutiques, shops, markets and cafes. Stroll along Danforth Avenue, home of the annual Taste of the Danforth, Canada’s largest street festival. Sample Shanghai dumplings, Turkish pizza (also known as pide), Greek wine and homemade Greek dishes created from family recipes that have been handed down from one generation to the next. Along the way, hear from some of the locals who helped shape this exciting and growing area.

From our first coffee stop, to sampling local shortbread cookies, local mission breads, a great fish market, Mediterranean lunch, famous canadian bacon sampler, to a finishing local gelato...we had a great experience in Leslieville. A welcoming neighborhood, rich in history and the perfect Chef as our guide, we had an amazing experience

We both really enjoyed the two tours we took one in Greektown and one in Leslieville. In both cases our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour was a nice mix of the history of the area as well as an introduction to the types of food.

We took the culinary walking tour of Leslieville and our tour guide, Kevin, was terrific! He was informative and fun and gave us a great insight into the area and provided us with numerous delicious tastings along the tour, which made for a perfect lunch. Although the tour is three hour, it goes quickly and the pace of the tour is leisurely. We had the opportunity to watch a demo and taste different kinds of olive oils, vinegars, salts, and peppers which was both interesting and delicious! Chef Scott gave us many recipes and ideas of things to try at home that could be created with few ingredients but still taste exceptional. The stops vary in taste which keeps the tour interesting and exciting. Great tour, well worth doing and a great value for the money!

We loved this, we did this in Leslieville . Our tour guide, Megan, was fantastic, lots of knowledge and simply...a really nice lady to meet and spend time with. We experienced lots of tastes, met some amazing people and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Seeing 'old Toronto' and hearing the history was most definitely a highlight of our time in Toronto, mega thanks to Megan.
