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.

We did the king and queen west tour. This tour was the perfect way to spend a Sunday even through we arrived on one of the coldest days of the year! Our host Scott was a local chef and very knowledgable about not only the food scene, but the area and history. Amazing value for money, we left completely stuffed... More

Chef Scott was funny (in a good way) and delivered great stories about the people, food delights and history of Leslieville (and Toronto). I was not sure what to expect before the tour but will take some of there others now I know how good they are. A fab way to learn, eat and socialise.

My husband and I are fairly new to Toronto (10 months) so were quite excited to take a walking culinary tour of Leslieville with Chef Scott. He knows his stuff. Great food, interesting stories and a wonderful history lesson of the area. Chef Scott also went out of his way to accommodate my ridiculous food issues (Gluten Free, Vegetarian). Highly... More

We live in Toronto but still learned tons. Kevin was engaging and informative - he knows the city and he knows it's food. We did the naming / Queen west brunch tour. All the stops were fantastic and we ate very well but even better were Kevin's background stories about the places and the city. In each place the staff... More

Visiting Toronto in the dead of winter may not be the best choice but if you do this tour it will be the most amazing trip ever!!! I mean doing this tour during any season will be a good idea! We ate mounds of drool worthy food with Chef Scott at 3 different spots on the Ossington tour. Each restaurant... More

Cheesewerk's self proclaimed "head cheese" oozes his obvious enthusiasm for all things Gouda. And cheddar. And blue. The Cheese and Cheers class is a delicious and informative introduction to a world beyond your regular dairy section cheeses. From Artisan cheeses to the secret gems from this country's cheese giants, Kevin, with a little help from his partner in crime Chef... More

Great food, great company and most of all great tour guides. They were well versed in sharing Toronto's unique culinary offerings in and around King/Queen West. I had an amazing time learning about the city and getting a taste of some of Toronto's best croissants, eggs benny and bacon just to name a few. Definitely a must do for locals... More

I'm a Toronto local, and did the Chef's Tour of Little Italy with Chef Scott January 2015. Chef is a jovial guy, who clearly knows his food (and loves it). We visited three local restaurants - none of which I'd been to before - including a fantastic bbq joint that had been opened for just 2 days (it's good to... More

My husband and I went on this tour together for my birthday and had a wonderful time. We had never been dog sledding before and found it very enjoyable. We went with Kevin as our driver who was friendly and easy to talk to. Food was absolutely delicious, hot, and plentiful. However, be prepared for a long day and a... More
