      This tour was everything and more. The tour guide Jessica was the best and gave so much information. We ate, laughed and learned so much about Canada 🇨🇦
      International Food Tour
      Brandie_H, Mar 2023
      We enjoyed our food tour. I have done food tours in several countries - compared to others the order of the stops seemed a little strange (dumplings and tea earlier in would have made more sense) and more jokes or quirky facts would have been nice. But we did like our walk thru Kensington with someone who knew the area.
      Good experience
      Fraser_W, Mar 2023
      Great selection of different kinds of foods across the Kensington Markets. The serving sizes were good and the ability to sit and eat at most of the places was great too! I would have like to have heard some more from other guests about where they were from
      Best tour you can do!
      Rebecca_T, Mar 2023
      This was our favorite part of the trip! Jessica was super knowledgeable and passionate about both the food and the culture at Kensington Market. She had a great relationship with all the shop owners and provided the best experience. We'd recommend her and this tour to anyone!
      Can’t recommend this tour enough!
      Stefanie_V, Jan 2023
      It was an excellent food tour that brought Kensington market and its history to such a beautiful memory for us. Jessica managed to explain everything about the place with such passion and understanding that we would now like to eat our way through Kensington market. So much knowledge about food, but also respect for the history and owners of the restaurants and small businesses there…we can only recommend you to book this tour and enjoy a wonderful hours spent together with a group of people with similar passion like yours.
      Tour Guide William is great.

      William is great tour guide. He gave even more life the history and stories he shared with us about Kensington market. It was a chilly day, but William came prepared with hand warmers! Great experience.
      I booked this food tour...
      Jessica_D, Nov 2022
      I booked this food tour through Viator, but it disappeared from my app, which prevented me from pulling up the ticket or details. There was no record in the app that I had booked the trip (only via the confirmation email I received), and therefore no contact information for the operator. I tried to figure out how to contact Viator for help, but was frustratingly looped back and instructed to contact the operator (which was impossible). Am wondering if maybe the operator went out of business? Regardless, not a great experience.
      A Great Day Around the Market
      Irene_B, Nov 2022
      This tour was great despite the rain. Jessica, our tour guide, was prepared with ponchos if needed, and she was wonderful. She has a great personality and shared a lot of great information about the history of the market and answered any and all questions posed. As she said, we "visited" 5 countries sampling 9 different food items in the 2 1/2 hours. All the food was delicious and the portion sizes were great. Our only concern was that it was a little carb heavy so you do need to pace yourself or save a portion for eating later.
      Great Toronto experience
      Julie_D, Nov 2022
      This was brilliant. Our guide, William was excellent. The food places we went were so lovely. And so much food, make sure you an hungry. we stopped at 6 places and tried more than 10 different things, i lost count!
      A great experience
      Mark_C, Nov 2022

      Desate_B, Oct 2022
      We enjoy learning the history of Kensington. Learning the culture and the art is amazing! Good night tasting was different. We had bagels, empanadas, fish, tea, and Jamaica meat pies….yummy!
      Fantastic food tour of Kensington Market
      Ray_T, Oct 2022
      Jessica was a fantastic tour guide who provided a wealth of information about the food and culture of Toronto.
      Great experience. Highly recommend.
      Yuval_P, Oct 2022
      Wonderful tour. Great food. The guide was very knowledgeable, kind and shared a lot of his knowledge I learnt a lot about Canada and Toronto (definitely not just food)
      Great tour!
      Laura_W, Oct 2022
      Our tour guide William was outstanding! He took us on a culinary tour of cuisines that we honestly probably would have never tried at Kensington Market, and we’re so glad we did! So worth the time!
      Taste unique fusions of countries in 2 hours
      Freda_F, Oct 2022
      Our tour guide William was delightful! Really enjoyed learning about the history and culture of Toronto as we ate through places around Kensington market. He introduced us to new fusion types of foods that we haven’t tried before.
      Wonderful Tour!
      Wilma_S, Sept 2022
      Our tour operator Jessica was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed the history she provided, and the food tastings were great. We were so full by the time the tour was over!
      Kensington Market, A brief visit
      Raymond_M, Sept 2022
      Walking through the neighborhood, experiencing the sights, sounds, and smells of the various eateries. Learning of the history and notable monuments of the area increased my appreciation of my visit.
      Bev_M, Aug 2022
      Loved the food tour. Our Guide was awesome and picked great food for us to try! In addition to the food we got a lot of information about the neighborhoods!
      Fun and filling!
      LISSA_W, Aug 2022
      William made the guests feel included in the experience, from start to finish. Also, the food was excellent and plentiful.
      Great guide but mediocre food
      Penny_R, Aug 2022
      Tour guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about foods and neighborhood and history. Very friendly and open to questions. Food was not great. 3 of the 6 stops involved fried dough and not much flavor. Bagel stop and fish stop were great
      Response from Host, Aug 2022
      Thanks Penny for your kind words and glad I was able to be your host on our foodie adventure. I'm sorry to hear that the food was not to your liking but glad you enjoyed our Bagel stop and our Fish n Chip stop. Sorry, you didn't like the Chilean, Jamaican, Swedish and Korean stops where we highlighted and shared authentic tastings from those countries that are favourites amongst the kids of those cultures. I'm sorry that those flavours didn't fit your pallet but I'm glad you were willing to try things and perhaps learned a little bit about the people and cultures behind the foods showcased on our tour.
