“Great way to spend a couple of hours”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I had a great experience with the Kensington Market/Chinatown tour. Jason was the guide on this tour, and he couldn't have been better.

My tour was on a Sunday morning in late April. There were only two others on this tour, so it was quite personal. Kuddos to Jason and Urban Adventures for not requiring a certain number of guests to hold the tour - some companies would have cancelled.

Jason was knowledgable, fun, and very nice. I learned about the history, culture, and cuisine of the two districts on the tour. It was a great orientation to the area -- after the tour I spent a couple of hours continuing to explore further some of the interesting places (and restaurants/cafes) he pointed out.

I would recommend this tour as a unique experience in Toronto that doesn't quite fit into the typical tourist itinerary, and you'll have a lot of fun!

“How to love your city even more...”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

One of the best tours I have been on ever!

I have been living in Toronto for over 7 years now and decided Sunday to hop on an Urban Adventures tour of Chinatown and Kensington Market yesterday. It's amazing the things I did not know or appreciate about the neighborhoods I'd wandered numerous times over the years. Our guide, Jason, had not only a textbook but personal knowledge of the neighborhood and was entertaining to boot. My friend and I, both locals, left the tour feeling so lucky to live in this city and proud to show it off to any tourists we come across.

Great Job Urban Adventures, and thank you!!

“Beer does make History Better!”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I booked this tour as it seem different to the usual walking tours experience elsewhere. It also got a thumbs up from my Husband due to the fact it had Beer in the title.

We met our guide Jason who was friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable about Toronto and of course beer. There were only 3 of us plus Jason which I found really nice as we all got to chat and learn more. We had a fun afternoon learning lots of facts about Toronto and tasted different kinds of beer based on Jasons recommendations, at C’est What, Betty’s and ending the tour at the lovely Distillery District. We even made a quick de-tour to a Sake Bar as we had never tasted this before. The guy we met at that bar was also very knowledgeable about Sake!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would definitely recommend this to anyone. If ever I’m back in Toronto, I will give When Pigs Fry a try!

“Delicious and fun - When Pigs Fry!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This is a must do if you love eating! We had a great time with our tour guide Jason who showed us great places to eat pig dishes! We went on this tour for a birthday party, but it was so much more. We were informed about this history of each dish we were eating, and we enjoyed a nice walk around Toronto. Thanks for the great food and time!
