I joined my friends for Chowbella's Global Bites Tour. We made 6 stops in the Queen/Dundas West area. We all left feeling happily full and have all discovered new restaurants and shops to visit more regularly in that area. Trina was fantastic! I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great afternoon.

I had so much fun showing your group some of our favourite west end spots, Mandy. And, I'm tickled pink that you enjoyed eating your way through the neighbourhood. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. More

I did the Chowbella "Cheese and Chocolate" tour as part of a bachelorette party. She was very knowledgeable and brought us to lots of great places. The price was great too, considering how much food there was, and we were definitely well fed. I will say though, that if you're familiar with the Queen and King West area, you aren't... More

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

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.

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.

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
