My boyfriend and I just finished the Chocolate and Cheese tour and it was fantastic! Despite living in the GTA and frequenting downtown Toronto we were taken to places that we had never been to or even heard of. Each stop offered full sized portions and absolutely delicious food. Trina was friendly and knowledgable which made the tour seem like... More

My wife and I just finished the Chocolate and Cheese Crawl.............It was awesome! For a reasonable price we got to stop at some very cool shops and taste some amazing foods. The tour was a great way to see an area of the city that we may not have otherwise seen. Trina was very informative and made the tour that... More

We joined the Global Bites Tour and had a really great afternoon strolling and sampling our way around a very interesting area. We enjoyed each of the stops and certainly had lots to eat. Trina was lovely and very enthusiastic about the area.

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 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
