The porchetta was one of the best things we ever ate in our lives! Definitely make sure the St. Lawrence Market will be open when you go, because it has a fascinating history that we would never have known without the tour guide. We did wish there was a plan for getting back to the starting spot because it was a long walk, on our own. And it started raining. If that problem were solved it would be a 5 star tour.

Great fun, good food and a terrific group. The Guide knows his Toronto and the stops for food are well organised and worthwhile. I'd have liked more history about Toronto and Hog Town but his memories of growing up in Windsor were pleasant enough. Unfortunately the Market was closed as we took the tour on Sunday Tip Don't take the tour on Sunday!. We ended up at Wurst later than advertised as the venue was closed at our ETA as it was hosting a Wedding tip don't take the tour if one of the stops is hosting a wedding!
The Guide happily added an hour of his time to the Tour. Gave us a good framework to continue our personal exploration of Toronto.

This was an amazing tour. Our guide couldn't have been better, full of information about the city and it's history. The food was incredible too. We were just sorry we didn't have time to do more tours with the same company. Highly recommended!
