Join us for a huge treat -- a guided walking tour in which you will sample chocolates, baked goods and other sweets at quality ethnic shops in Kensington Market and Chinatown. Our guide will be Ian from Tasty Tours Toronto.
After the tour, we'll go for another treat -- lunch at The Grilled Cheese, a rustic cafe that sells a creative variety of grilled cheese sandwiches in Kensington Market.
Our group is getting a discount of more than 30 per cent off the regular price of this tour!
NOTE: There are only 16 spots for members on this tour due to the small size of the shops we'll be visiting. However, if lots of members sign up, the same tour may also be offered in the afternoon after lunch. Members on the waiting list will get first priority at spots for the afternoon tour if it's posted.
Travel the world in one afternoon as we taste a variety of multicultural sweets in the crazy, colourful neighbourhood of Kensington Market. Did you know that the marshmallow used to be healthy? Find out the little known secrets behind the sweets we eat everyday, and try some new delicacies.
What to Expect
• Guided tour on the history of sweets

Easy. Some narrow and crowded sidewalks, crossing some major roads.
The tour is almost entirely vegetarian and can be made mostly vegan (please mention when making booking). Unfortunately, other restrictions cannot be accomodated at this time.
Keep in Mind
• We are a food tour and not a historical tour
• The end point is a seven-minute walk from the start point
• It might be a little crowded in some of the smaller stores and on afternoon tours
• Bring water, an appetite and some extra cash to buy more yummies
