What You Can Expect
A feast for the senses, this neighborhood boasts many restaurants and shops brimming with authentic Chinese products and goods. Learn how Chinatown has evolved from a working-class Jewish market into a working-class bohemian market and one of Canada's largest Chinese communities.
Then, head just one street over to Kensington Market, the origin of multicultural Toronto. Explore its fruit and vegetable markets mixed with cool cafés, restaurants and vintage clothing stores – there’s neither a Starbucks nor a McDonald’s in sight! As you walk with your guide, learn how several waves of immigration over the past 100 years have splashed colors, sounds and flavors from all around the world throughout Kensington Market. Admire the brick walls covered with stunning graffiti murals and street art.
Along the way, your professional local guide will add interesting commentary and cover the history of these communities, as well as point out the best places to eat and shop.
We had a small 4 persons but very interesting group with an excellent tour guide: Mike. Mike lives in one of the neighborhoods we visited and knew the area history, local architecture, and many of the store owners. I can highly recommend this tour and Mike as a tour guide.
I Very much enjoyed the tour of Kensington, and Chinatown, it was nice to have a small group o people.
the tour guide mike had a great deal of historical knowledge. learned a lot of local history and colour
well worth the time and money invested.
Our tour guide Mike was very interesting! He gave us a lot of cultural and historical information about Chinatown and Kensington Market as well as fun commentary. Mike answered all of our questions and took whatever time we needed to fully investigate the sites on the tour. Wish we would have had more time to take additional tours.
Our tour guide Michael was knowledgeable and very entertaining! We enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it to others.
The tour guide did a very good job. It was interesting
Me niece and I both enjoyed the tour! Interesting, fun, and well paced! Tour guide was friendly, well-spoken and informative.
Very fun and knowledgable guide. Great area
Good guide. Well informed, pleasant, good sense of humor, gave enough information without overload, very enjoyable
Our guide was very personable and capable. Chinatown did not dwell much on the early history and Chineseness of the district, which i would have like as well - it focused more on the recent past also good.
A great way to spend a couple of hours.
Jason our guide was friendly, informative and really keen to answer our questions. We stopped for coffee and talked more. Kensington Market was really interesting with all the different eateries if you are not use to them. We was pleasent way to spend a morning.
