Savour and discover the vibrancy of a community that began as a small village back in the 1850’s and has transformed itself into one of Toronto’s hippest new neighbourhoods and the headquarters of Toronto’s film industry.
Learn about its history and culture, and how local citizens helped to shape the Toronto of today. Experience Riverside and Leslieville’s small town feel despite its close proximity to downtown Toronto. Join us as we walk along historic Queen Street East, meeting the shopkeepers and tasting their succulent wares. From sweet to savoury, our jovial tour guide will give you a behind the scenes take on one of the city’s best kept secrets.
See where celebrity Chef’s have hung out a shingle like Food Network’s Chef Lynn Crawford, and be regaled with local stories as we tempt your taste buds every step of the way. Tastings include Ontario wines, sustainable seafood, olive oils, organic artisan breads, home made shortbread (made with butter and love), home made ice cream and a light lunch at one of the area’s trendiest restaurants. Guaranteed to be a fun-filled and palate pleasing 3 1/2 hours! Whether you have lived in Toronto all your life or are visiting for the first time, this is one tour not to miss.
