This was a great way to hear about some of Toronto’s history and discover Canadian food. Our guide Yuliya (sorry if I’ve spelled your name wrong!) was great: very knowledgable about the city and she was super friendly. She even managed to get us into Toronto’s Flat Iron building to see the city’s oldest elevator that Al Capone rode in! The food was great and Yuliya made sure that all our dietary requirements were taken care of. Food was great! We went for the upgraded drinks option and tried a Caesar, but there were other options too. It was our last activity on our holiday and it was a great way to end.

Enjoyed the tour very much. Iulia was a fantastic guide and she did a great job keeping us all informed and moving. Enjoyed the historical information! We spent most of the time at the St Lawrence Market. It was an interesting place. The food all tasted good. I wished for more variety of food because every item was carbs or sweets. Only one protein item was a sandwich. This tour was less walking than other food tours we have taken, and we started and ended in the same location.

Some really great food on this tour and the tour guide Yulia was amazing with a ton of knowledge. Our group was small with only 4 people total which was nice. The tour focuses mostly in the St Lawrence market area so not a ton of walking long distances which is great. By the time we were done we were very full. 10/10 - would recommend!!!

Our guide, Katarina, was exceptional! The tour started on time and stayed to the schedule. Katarina was knowledgeable about the architecture and history of the city. She led us through the Market and pointed out numerous tidbits I would have never known on my own. The shop selections and food were authentic and delightful. The restaurant selections were spectacular variety of seafood, pizza, and beverages. Her knowledge was deep and she was lovely and made this tour the best spent money on my entire trip. Will do it again on my next visit for sure!

My friend and I took the Secret Food Tour of Toronto with Katerina Glam in September, while on a long weekend away from Chicago.

We were the only ones booked that day, so it became a private food tour. Katarina was very informative, patient, and gracious. Even though we were the only ones on the tour, it never felt rushed, and we ended up taking the same amount of time as estimated on the website for a larger group. We also were provided at some locations the same amount of food as a standard 6-10 person group!

In addition to linking the food we were eating to the establishment and then history of the city, Katarina also pointed out historical places that were also significant to the development of Toronto into Canada's primary city.

The food was diverse and interesting and representative of different parts and eras of Toronto.

I'd definitely recommend the tour for anyone looking for a hearty helping of local fare and a light history lesson as well.

We are local to Toronto, but wanted to celebrate our anniversary in a unique way. We found the secret food tour while searching for something to do in Toronto.

We had such a good time on the tour with Ashima.
She was friendly, attentive and timely. We laughed a lot, ate a lot and never felt like it was too long or too short. Our guide was so knowledgable about the city and various facts about the city, buildings and architecture, food and businesses.
Ashima is engaging, friendly and extremely knowledgeable.
Everything that we ate tasted phenomenal. Our favourite was the Peameal Bacon sandwich topped with everything.
The walk was easy and appropriate for any age group. We went as a couple but can see that our kids would have enjoyed it as well.

We highly recommend this tour for any tourist and locals Alike.

We took an opportunity to find a tour that would help us explore Toronto and some of the great know foods that Toronto us know for. Yulia was our guide and she was super nice and helpful in taking us and three others around to St. Lawerence Market and the Distillery District. We got to sample some smoked salmon with maple, pea meal sandwich, specialty mustards, a nanana bar, butter chicken roti, Hawaiian pizza and butter tarts. It was a fun tour on a really nice sunny day. Yulia gave us good history and background on the areas we visited in the city and we enjoyed the company we were with. If you need to explore Toronto and get nice tour of the areas with great foods, I would recommend this tour.

Great tour. Very informative and delicious. Our guide Carol was super, very knowledgeable and engaged. Tour moved at a good pace and we saw a lot of the general market area. She gave us a really good intro into the Canadian and Toronto specialties. All the food was top quality and we were full by the end…darn it, couldn’t finish all of the “secret” food! But made sure to finish our Caesers!

Highly recommend taking this tour to get a true taste of Toronto, and if you are lucky you will have Carol as your guide.
