Rob was a great host. We enjoyed learning about the local hotspots, the history of the region and of course sampling some tasty treats along the way!

Mags1019, I am not going to make an excuse for this as I am highly disappointed in your experience. We work very hard to provide a high quality food tour and excellent customer service and it is apparent we dropped the ball the day of...More

Very enjoyable afternoon. Gary pointed things out and told us all sorts of stuff I'm sure I'll never remember. But we did park on Byron Street when we came back to shop the next day! THAT I remembered. Bought cheese too. yum

Good afternoon. Have just read the reviews and am thinking this might just be something that we should do. But I have questions. My sister and husband (Missouri) and myself and husband (South Dakota) are arriving in Kitchener on May 13. After a stay there, then over to Niagara Falls, we will be arriving in NOTL on Sunday, May 17 for two days. We are seniors. My husband is a diabetic, still on pills-not insulin yet. I am certain you have had this situation arise before. Will he be able to find food that he can enjoy? He may have a small sip of wine. Would there be other beverages available for him? How do we make arrangements? Can this be done on the day of the tour as I don't feel I can set something up without visiting with the other 3 in our traveling party? Thanks in advance for this information. Linda in South Dakota
