My cousin didn't want a traditional bridal shower, and told me that what her friends liked to do was to eat - and this wound up being a GREAT choice for an off-beat bridal shower alternative. Trina was extremely courteous and professional, from the first enquiry into booking until the last stop of the chocolate and cheese crawl. Not all... More

The chocolate and cheese crawl with Trina was excellent! She took us to a part of Toronto I may not have otherwise visited, filled with cute boutiques and eateries. All the food we tasted was full size portions (no sharing 1 cupcake between 4 people) and high quality. The pace of tour was perfect - I never felt rushed. There... More

We were REALLY glad we took the advice to eat light before starting out on the walking Global Bites tour. Our guide Corinne was fun, informative and kept things rolling along nicely. Interesting mix of tastes in 6 different locations. I took my daughter who lives in Toronto, and she enjoyed trying out places she had been by but never... More

We always say that if you're not full by the end of one of our tours, we haven't done our job. It is a food tour after all. :) We're thrilled that you were fully satisfied and that your daughter was able to discover new dining spots in Toronto. Thanks again for joining us and for taking the time to... More

I received a gift certificate on my birthday - in November - for the Chocolate and Cheese Crawl with Chow Bella. I decided to hold onto it until my mother-in-laws birthday so that we can celebrate together. We met Trina, our host, on Queen Street at Tealish. It was the begins of a wonderful day of delicious treat and terrific... More

My husband and I have lived in Toronto for many years after relocating from Montreal in the 80’s. I was recently given the Cheese and Chocolate tour for two as a gift by my family of foodies. Despite many visits to the Queen and King Streets area we were pleasantly surprised to be introduced to so many new and delightfully... More

We love it when we can introduce fellow foodies like you and your husband to new culinary delights, especially those you've walked by time and time again and didn't venture into on your own. It was a pleasure spending the afternoon with you. Thanks again for taking the time to write a fantastic review! More

Chowbella food tour gives you a great blend of Toronto's eclectic food scene. I tasted several dishes I'd never heard of, as well as some new takes on my old favorites. As an added bonus, our guide provided a fantastic background on a Toronto, which is great for first-timers to the city. -Ryan, Washington, D.C.

My significant other and I have traveled a few places and try to do a food tour for every city we visit. I have to say as a self-appointed "foodie" and someone who has done food tours before, that the Chowbella Taste & Travel was the best food tour I've done so far! Our tour guide Trina was absolutely wonderful!... More

I used the Cheese and Chocolate Tour as a platform for a Bridal Shower. Everyone enjoyed the choice of venues and the interesting information about each place. Just the right amount of walking in a very up and coming neighbourhood. The Cheesewerks topped the best stop with Soma a close second. Trina provided us with a memorable day. Everyone left... More

My sister-in-law organized a "Cheese & Chocolate" tour with Trina as the centrepiece of a bridal shower for her soon-to-be daughter-in-law. As a long-time resident of Toronto, very familiar with the Toronto foodie scene, Trina put together a series of visits to venues in downtown Toronto that impressed each and every individual in the group. Trina clearly loves what she... More
