What to Expect

Experience the Amazing Diversity of Toronto

Most culturally diverse city on the planet = Best city to taste the world.

Let us take the worry of figuring out what to try on your ethnic food adventure.  Our Kensington Market international Toronto food tour let’s you experience tastings from 6 countries in 3 hours. Each tasting is carefully chosen to give you a glimpse into the foods off the “eaten path”.  Slow down and explore Toronto’s off-the-beaten-path neighbourhood.  Discover the culture and history of our city, just northwest of the busy Downtown area. Get away from the hustle and bustle of Yonge Street and instead dive deep into the heart of the most hip, unique and diverse neighbourhood in Toronto.  After the guided tour, explore Kensington Market with confidence and take advantage of thoughtful recommendations from your local Toronto guide on the area’s full spectrum of cuisine, restaurants, entertainment and cultural offerings.

Note:  A great VEGETARIAN option is available.  Please advise upon booking.

I am a cautious eater. Jusep opened up these cool little places that I had no idea existed and made them warm, welcoming, and accessible. He took us to six different restaurants, all from different countries and obviously carefully vetted. Great job, Jusep! Looking forward to doing another tour!
