    A bit of a let down.
    Cheryl_H, Jan 2023
    The tour guide Carol was lovely and very knowledgeable. The places visited were okay but the food was ordinary. The highlight was the bacon roll and coffee. Was expecting more and the bag of Lays ketchup chips at the start was not a great first experience of Canadian food.
    Response from Host, Jan 2023

    Amazing food

    It was a chilly and drizzly day, unfortunately the main stops (food stalls) at St Andrews Market were closed but Yulia was able to roll with the punches and put together a Greta tour of the city with drinks and nibbles. Feel free to skip breakfast for this tour, you won't regret it!

    I looooved that we enjoyed a bit of traditional Canadian food. Caroline is a sweetheart. I think she is funny and said interesting facts about the buildings near the markets
    An amazing day to be tourists in our own city

    I bought this walking food tour as a birthday gift for my partner. It was a beautiful, cool and sunny day, which was perfect for a walk in the city. What made it even better was how interesting our tour guide, Yulia, made the walk—adding bits of history in the mix. We will definitely bring our friends and family, who may be visiting Toronto soon, to this walking food tour. Thanks again Yulia for making it such a wonderful day!

    I had a great time on this trip with Julia. She was easy to talk to and explained the history of most of the stalls, shops, and food. A few extra surprises and sights. I had an amazing time.
