Found this tour in a local magazine and so glad I did. Took my sister in law for her birthday treat. We are both locals but found it a great way to learn about a new neighbourhood in our city. Trina was very informative and well spoken and the selected venues were not only tasty but also genuinely glad to... More

We had a group of five ladies on a Bachelorette Party weekend, and we had the great opportunity to experience a part of Toronto on the Chocolate & Cheese Crawl. The stops we made along this walking tour were great, and had a perfect balance for chocolate lovers (like me!) and cheese heads. Our local tour guide, Trina, provided excellent... More

This was our favorite "activity" in Toronto. I think the tour could be appreciated by anyone of any level of food interest, but we loved all of Trina's insights and foodie enthusiasm. The stops were a perfect sampling of what these neighborhoods have to offer. She even personalized our tour a bit as she learned more about our interests. Trina's... More

I had the opportunity to take the Chocolate and Cheese tour with Trina of ChowBella! And I have to say it was an awesome experience! A group of us were in Toronto for a Bachelorette Party Weekend! We are all foodies from Michigan and we don't have one negative thing to say about this tour. First off, Trina was a... More

First time visitors to Toronto, we were excited to find this tour and add it to our list of things to see and do there. Trina was so personable and led our group of six through a part of the city we may have missed otherwise. Getting a firsthand glimpse into local cuisine and shops who go the extra mile... More

Trina took us on a tour that included some of the yummiest classic Toronto food - and provided fun, laughter and helpful information along the way! My husband and I went on this tour for my birthday and were really impressed with the quality and amount of food we got to try. The food samples were not small tasting sized... More

We recently went on the cheese and chocolate tour of Queen West. Trina was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgable of the area and chose some great places to visit. I was not a big tea drinker, but after Tealish, I will be! We went to D'Lish, where I ate the best cupcakes I've ever had. Cheesewerks was very cool... More

My friend surprised me today with a walking tour in the Queen West area of Toronto for a delightful Cheese and Chocolate tour. This is my first tour and there were 7 of us in total who participated. It was fantastic! With the owner bringing her knowledge and some of the "best of the best" to the tour, I can... More

We were interested in doing a culinary tour in Toronto but couldn't find a tour that worked with the time we were looking for. We opted to do a 'self-guided tour' through Chowbella. Experience with Chowbella: My e-mails were always promptly responded to by Trina - I love quick replies! Trina even helped with some reservations with restaurants that were... More

Trina took us through several West Queen West local shops, owners. Many are small businesses who take their chocolate and cheese seriously. I loved the tea shop (chocolate mint - amazing), and the chocolate shop. Trina is a great guide - who knows just enough about each shop/business and what makes each of them unique and different. If I lived... More
