      The best private food tours & experiences with locals

      In Canada’s capital, food is a big deal. The Toronto food scene is a cross-cultural melting pot of textures, tastes, and flavors thanks to the city’s incredible diversity. The countless cultures that call Toronto home have brought with them a smorgasbord of delicious dishes from all across the globe. If a food exists, you’ll find it here. As for local Toronto food, it’s not all maple syrup – Canada has its own fantastic cuisine, with iconic specialties done the right way scattered throughout Toronto. Whether you’re looking for authentic pastéis de nata at a Portuguese market or a plate of poutine from a local haunt, Toronto is the place to get it.

      One word to describe the Toronto food culture: diverse. For centuries, immigrants from South America, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe have been bringing their culinary cultures to Toronto. In the city’s ethnic enclaves, virtually every type of cuisine is readily available. Several of the city’s neighborhoods are known for their international cuisine, from authentic Asian in Agincourt to Greek and Turkish in The Danforth. You definitely won’t be stuck for Toronto food to tuck into, particularly in a city where your tastebuds can travel the world without leaving the downtown area!

      Looking for things to do? Trying iconic Canadian food in Toronto should be top of the list. Canada has delectable dishes that have never really left the country’s shores, and on Toronto food tours, the more elastic your waistband, the better. Uniquely Toronto food includes the deceptively simple but oh-so-delicious peameal sandwich (griddled peameal bacon on a soft bun) and mouthwatering no-bake Nanaimo slices – a crumb base topped with layers of custard and chocolate. And then there’s Canadian poutine, the holy grail of crispy fries, squeaky cheese curds, and rich gravy.

      Toronto’s restaurants and cafés are world-class, but the true Toronto food bucket list can only be checked off at the city’s vibrant markets. From Portuguese-style grilled chicken and custard tarts at Churrasco St. Lawrence to Ukrainian pierogi dumplings at European Delight, Toronto manages to distill the global culinary scene into its small, colorful marketplaces. If you’re looking for things to do, head to Toronto food paradise in Kensington Market – a small neighborhood packed with Caribbean shops, Mexican taquerias, Chilean joints, European cafés, and authentic Italian pizzerias.

        Gabriel was a wonderful tour guide full of knowledge about Montreal's architecture and history (as well as some great places to grab a bite to eat!). He really listened to my interests and put together an itinerary that suited me well! We explored rare Isaac Newton books and science history at McGill University, stopped at a cafe afterward for coffee and snack, walked through beautiful neighborhoods, and wandered to Place des Arts and Old Port for sightseeing, where he recommended some great food. Gabriel is the best, and so was this tour!

        My husband and I had an awesome full day experience with May. She was very knowledgeable and personable. Our tour was totally customized to meet our interests and adding and excluding based on our requests. We walked, talked, ate, learned the history of the city, the buildings, shopped, rested, and walked some more. We were thrilled with the 18,000 steps journey through the old town, waterfront, underground, China town, university area and locals shopping district.
