Wow - what an unexpected delicious surprise! We are 5 sisters and a niece that have been doing a 'May Annual' for 18 (or 19) years. We've seen some fantastic concerts (Cher, Elton John, billy Joel) live theatre (Lion King) in large centers such as Minneapolis, Winnipeg and lately Toronto. This tour literally fell into our lap last minute and... More

We had already participated in two of this company's activities. And once again, Chef Scott has put together a fabulous food experience: the "School Shucks Oyster Class. We spent 3 hours at Rock Lobster Co. on Ossington with Scott and Chef DeKay. 8 people in our group, sitting around the bar shucking oysters, eating oysters and pairing oysters with all... More

The walking tour is a few blocks off of the Danforth. The area has changed considerably in the last 25 years, where it reflects a more multi – cultural landscape. Kevin is a great tour guide! His information seems natural, rather then forced or scripted. Honestly he is just a funny guy! I could hang with this nice guy on... More

We started at Queen and Ossington on a Friday afternoon. Our guide, Trina was very professional and knowledgable during the tour. Our group was small and varied in age from 24 to 60. We started at a small Cuban restaurant which was a great place to start. We ended a boutique chocolate shop and each ahd a shot of pure... More

We got a gift card for this tour from The Social and checked it out with a friend today. Let me just say it fully exceeded all my expectations. The tour guide Kevin was knowledgeable and fun, knowing lots of interesting facts about the food, the area and the culture. We visited so many local restaurants and had large portions... More

We enjoyed our tour very much. It was a very windy day but we managed to duck in and out of several venues on our way around the town. We started out at a coffee cafe, had some shortbread cookies that are a favorite of Mick Jagger's, went to a bread shop, a wine store, a fish store, 2 restaurants... More

Chef Scott's stories were completely amusing and engaging, making this trip totally worth it. We just love food tours in general, and we were not at all disappointed by this one. The food was pretty good with LOTS to eat and great variety, but the real highlights were the many stories and anecdotes Chef Scott shared during our tour.

My wife and I enjoyed two of Chef Scott Savoie's tours recently. We selected the St. Lawrence Market Tour and the Leslieville/Riverside Tour. Both are equally excellent. Chef Scott is very knowledgeable of the venues and offers a running dialogue that's both entertaining and fact filled. You will not leave either of these tours hungry. Being from the southern United... More

Amazing experience with our son and his girlfriend. Can't wait to bring the rest of the family to this great spot. "The Big Cheese" Kevin Durkee was a fountain of information and a patient teacher. We brought our efforts home with us and look forward to enjoying them in the days to come.
