If you are reading this you need to take the Kensington Market tour if you get the chance. This was my favourite activity during my short trip to Toronto. The COVID-19 precautions were taken very seriously but this did not impact the tour in any sort of negative way. Masks were worn when not eating and my temperature was taken before the tour began. Jusep also provided hand sanitizer and wet wipes. I am an introverted, solo traveller but Jusep put me at ease. The tour was awesome and I would recommend it to everyone whether you are a local or a traveller. The tour was a great value for the amount of food and information you get. The pace was also perfect. Jusep has put a lot of research into the historical aspects of the tour and the food selection. I am a picky eater but I enjoyed all of the dishes (food and beverages!) Jusep was very personable yet professional and his love for food and his community shone through the whole time. He enjoys what he does and adjusts the tour to best suit the guests, tossing in some great life lessons along the way! There were some famous stops and some hidden gems. This tour is a great opportunity to learn about the cultural history of Kensington Market. The tour was the ultimate blend of history, food, and friendship. Great for all ages. You are sure to love it!

Myself and a group of 5 others did the international Kensington food tour for a bachelorette celebration. This was my first time doing a food tour in Toronto. It was a great choice! My friends and I had the greatest time! Jusep is such a kind-hearted and fun person. He was a fantastic guide and really made the tour so much fun. He was super accommodating and took so many group photos for us and really knew his stuff! We all felt he was the greatest guide and made us feel so comfortable (despite covid) keeping his mask on the entire time. Jusep seems to genuinely love what he does and appreciate food and culture. We tried so many new places and different cuisines. Plus, the food was delicious! It was a pleasant surprise for our entire group, including the ones that felt we knew Kensington Market.I would recommend this tour for anyone that appreciates different cuisines and would love to learn more about Kensington Market.

I had the great opportunity to get a tour with Jesup. A coworker and I booked the tour unsure on how it was going to go because neither of us had been on one. Well Jesup exceeded any expectations and blew us away with his knowledge of Kensington Market and all the cuisine we got to try. The food was amazing and his stories behind each restaurant were so informative and engaging. I will definitely be doing this tour again just because I enjoyed it so much, he makes me want to travel like he does (he will tell you how he travels if you ask), and his love for food brought out even more of my love for food. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience Toronto, whether you’re visiting or live there! Thank you Jesup, you’re an amazing person and thank you for the tour!

This was our first food tour and was such a good experience. We were able to sample a good selection of different foods and I was very full by the last stop! Jusep, our guide was extremely clued up about such a wide range of food and culture. The smoked trout bagel and kale salad were definitely my faves!

I would highly recommend to anyone who likes food and is keen to hear a little history too.

The Kensington Market Food Tour was the best tour I've ever been on! Since I was the only one on the tour with Jusep on a cold January day, I felt like I was in a travel show!! He was an excellent guide to the history of the market, Toronto, and the food that has made it way to different countries and to the market. All of his restaurant and food selections were excellent. I even stepped out of my comfort zone and tried a couple a foods I don't like that much. I would highly recommend anyone to take this tour to get an amazing taste of the Kensington Market and food from around the world!!

Probably one of the best food tours of my life! and I’ve done many… The food was unique and delicious and the tour guide made it even more magical. I truly learned so much about Toronto during this food tour. The owner (who was our guide) truly showed his passion for this city, the people, and food! I’d recommend this tour to anyone! I hope to do another food tour again with this amazing company and Jusep! Thank you so much for being the highlight of our stay in Toronto!

Jesup is much more than just another tour guide and he provides much more than just a food tour. He is a masterful storyteller that connects you with the history behind the delicious food you are trying. We had the absolute pleasure of trying some delectable hidden gems we most likely never would have found without him! I wish I could have a tour from Jesup in every city I visit! Big shout out to Chopsticks + Forks for a very memorable experience.

We had a group of 17 adults in Toronto celebrating my husband’s 50th birthday. Most of the group had never experienced a food tour and didn’t know what to expect. Our guide for this private tour, William, expertly led us through a culinary journey with tastings throughout the eclectic and colorful neighborhood of Kensington Market. Great food samplings were accompanied with interesting history and humorous anecdotes which kept us entertained. Although we tried many delicious foods and drink, the group really loved the trout bagel, beef empanada and ginger cookie, to name a few. Overall it was an excellent adventure for our group! Thank you, Jusep, for smooth coordination of this outing!

Exceptional tour with Juesep.

We really didn’t know what to expect of this and it has been the highlight of our 4 days in Toronto.

Jusep is passionate about food, ethnicity history and Toronto as a whole and does his best to share his passion and insights during this fascinating tour.

In a couple of hours you learn about Kensington and Toronto history and sample foods from every continent and 8 countries in total during 7 stops yet only actually walk about a mile in total - it’s all about the food.

Jusep himself is fascinating and I could listen to him all day - do this tour if coming to Toronto

We had a great time on the food tour. We were lucky to have Jusep as our guide--his warm personality helped our group get comfortable right away. There was a wide variety of food and drinks from cultures all over the world, and it was all delicious. Jusep has such a deep knowledge of the restaurants and their food, and he shared the significance of each dish and the chef/restaurant who made it, which made the tour a really rich experience. The tour was a highlight of our trip, and I wish we could have stayed longer in Toronto to revisit some of the restaurants and try new ones in Kensington Market.
