We recently had the delight of enjoying the Chowbella tour. Despite living in Toronto for over 30 years, we visited unknown (to us) gems of restaurants! These non-chain establishments served novel and delicious offerings, places we would absolutely return to again. The retail establishments on Queen and King streets change rapidly with new ones on the scene all the time.... More

The guide was really energetic and seems really passionate about what she do. The food portion were really big and the food was really good. Cupcake, pizza, chips, macaron, tea, ... The only thing is that I think the guide could have had more information about the city.

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

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
