Once the tour started it was very interesting with a professional tour-guide. Very good impression of the historic parts of old Toronto.The problem was the starting time of the tour; we were not informed correctly about the time: on the confirmation voucher was stated start 14.00hrs. but, meeting point and time: 10.00hrs.! So we had to wait about 4 hrs if not we could have lost our money and tour!

Of all the things we did this was by far the most interesting and worth the money. Our guide was knowledgeable and knew his food and Toronto history. Though the order of eating would have been different if I were in charge, by no means was it skimpy. You cannot leave this tour hungry unless you choose to. The stands you are eating from have been in families for generations and they bantered with the guide and answered questions. Every dollar I spent on this was worthwhile, along giving up my strict paleo diet for a day! I would recommend this tour to anyone, foodie or not. Literally something to eat for any and everyone.
