we did the kensington tour on a recent trip to toronto -- it was terrific!! so many great restaurants in that neighborhood, really wonderful to sample 5 of them. eva was our guide and she was adorable and very knowledgeable about the food scene and toronto in general. all the restaurants looked happy to see her. the only problem is that kensington is such a small neighborhood, we didn't have enough space to walk off all that food!! i will definitely do another tour with this group next time i'm in toronto.

Coming from an Italian background, I cannot help but ensure people always leave full! Thank you for taking the time to post such a fantastic review of your experience. We appreciate your support and are glad to hear that you had a great time on the tour. Next time, we will make sure we go for a brisk walk to burn off some of the calories in between stops ;) We look forward to feeding you again soon!

This is a great tour for locals and tourists alike. We visited 6 great little food places, ranging from a sit down Italian restaurant (with the best dessert platter!) to street food-type places. The guide was really knowledgable about both the food and the city - I learned a lot and visited places that I'd never been to before despite having lived in Toronto for over two years. Would highly recommend!

At first, I was really skeptical about this food tour/scavenger hunt activity. Mainly, because I thought I knew all the secrets of Toronto... But, Steven and his crew proved me/us wrong! What a way to spend the day. Delicious food... lots of fun and knowlegable crew.

My only suggestion is perhaps add a few drinking types of activities... not so much that I would get plastered but just enough to be "energized" as I munch on the crispy BBQ pork from the fries at the Kanto stall on Dundas West. Yes.... that was the best part IMO. I had no clue that you can put sisig on french fries and be wicked tasting (almost better than a poutine!!!!!)

Turning skeptics into believers. Oh ya! Thank you so much for posting the review of the scavenger hunt we put together for your group. As much fun as you had, we had just as much fun seeing you enjoy the experience we put together for you. Your entire group was amazing. We could not ask for better clients. We appreciate you taking the time to post a review and for your support of our business. We look forward to putting together another event for you soon!

The food establishments chosen were real gems, and beyond my expectation. A wonderful group of people on the tour, a very knowledgeable tour leader, Steven, and perfect weather made for a great day in Toronto. I am recommending this tour to anyone visiting or living in the city, and can hardly wait to try another one of their events.

Food, friends and fantastic weather! The places we stopped at gave good size portions to get a taste for what it is they offer. The group of 18 was not too large and the stops were long enough that there was time not only to eat but also to socialize with other people in the group. I would definitely do another Foodies on Foot tour and highly recommend it to others as well.
