We did this food tour for our friend’s 50th bday. What a fantastic day! I grew up in Hamilton and had no idea what unique wonderful restaurants and places of interest we have right here in the hammer!! Thanks to our tour guide Tammy who was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend doing this food tour and I can’t wait to do another one.

Just back from our decadent downtown food tour. I truly enjoyed Tammy , our guide and the wonderful places that we ventured to today. Not only did we visit numerous restaurants that served amazing foods and drink but we were also able to wander through some specialty shops and had a chance to explore their wears. Everyone we encountered were Hamilton proud, creative and passionate proprietors.
I highly recommend anyone who enjoys food and talent to join Tammy for a uplifting and tasty walking experience.

We went as my other half is really into her food culture and both really enjoyed ourselves. The tour covered many different types of food outlets (loved the burnt tongue soup restaurant). I would really recommend as an unusual way to spend a morning

What a marvellous way to spend a couple of hours - meeting nice people and enjoying great eats! Vanessa and Tammy have prepared the perfect tour by combining visits to restaurants and stores to gain a real feel of this very trendy neighbourhood. If you plan to attend, be sure to arrive with an empty stomach - you will not be disappointed with the scrumptious morsels that you will spend the next two hours devouring. Each restaurant and vendor went out of their way to talk about what they do and why. A totally enjoyable outing!

We had a great time on the tour, our guides were friendly and knowledgeable, and all the food we tried was absolutely delicious. Also loved visiting some of the local shops as we strolled around. I'm happy to have learned more about the area, we'll definitely be back!

Have just completed the tour and found it an excellent way to learn more about Hamilton and meet a lot of its residents. Tammy was great and the food we sampled of high quality - recommend you do not eat beforehand as there was lots to eat. Good fun. We also visited some very interesting arts and crafts shops too.

My husband and I did the Ottawa Street Food Tour and were lucky enough to be the only guests (as another couple postponed due to rain) with the owners Tammy and Vanessa. It was excellent! We would recommend this tour whether you are local to Hamilton or the surrounding area, visiting, or new to town. It's highly likely this tour will introduce you to somewhere new. Even though there was a little bit of rain, the stops are very close together so it did not disrupt the afternoon. The overall walking distance is not far.

We came hungry and left pleasantly full - it's a 1pm start which is great for lunch and leisurely grazing through the three hour tour. The stops are well spaced, with the first and the last being the most substantial, so there was time to digest. We were also given some 'take home goodies' which were most appreciated to enjoy later on empty stomachs. We look forward to doing the James Street tour later this year!

Tammy was awesome, very charming and knowledgeable. You get to go to the top places as well as to hidden jewels far off the beaten path. I really though I knew a lot about Hamilton's food scene but there was a lot more to learn and frankly, the eats in that city put a lot of other places to shame. I can't imagine a better way to spend an afternoon as a tourist in #HamOnt than by doing this tour. Highly recommended!

Tour of the Hamilton Farmer's Market was fantastic! Awesome sampling of some of the finest treats. Enjoyed the opportunity to talk to some of the hard working folks that make the market what it is!
So lucky to have such an amazing market in the heart of our beautiful city!
The tour was a great outing, terrific people and the most enthusiastic and passionate tour guide. Will definitely try another!
