Don't miss out on the 2.5 hour walking food tour in downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake for a unique tour experience like none other.

We toured around with Bill on a busy Sunday. It was a very informative tour, lasting approximately 2.5 hours. We covered some history about the area, talking about Niagara-on-the-lake as a whole as well as businesses and individuals who helped shape the Niagara area. We discovered some great food spots along the way and had the opportunity to taste some wonderful food. Our favourite was from a spot that was recently added to the tour: Il Gelato Del Carlotta. Not only was his gelato the best I've ever tasted (old fashioned gelato made with the best of ingredients and even better than what I could find in Italy), but the owner was so personable made that portion of the tour extraordinary. He spoke with such passion about his product, explained the history behind it and explained what he does differently to make such amazing gelato. In addition, the samples were massive and very well received on a hot Sunday afternoon.

The only improvements I could suggest to Bill, the tour guide, would be to either make a more efficient route (we back tracked a little bit, but admittedly the extra time between sample stops was nice. It just felt like we were doing a bit of unnecessary walking) or to take a more chronological approach to the tour to give it a bit more fluidity.

Overall we were very pleased with the tour. There was enough food to keep us happy and coupons for each location we visited should we want to return to purchase merchandise.

Never knew this existed. What a perfect way to see the sites and taste the wonderful offerings of Niagara On The Lake! Stephanie was a breath of fresh air. Her enthusiasm and energy rubbed off on us and made our tasting experience and day that much better. We enjoyed our 2-1/2 hour tour and will tell all our friends about it. Can't wait till the next time! Thanks again, Stephanie!

Have lived here most of my life and still learned something new. Great tour very informative about the history, architecture, food (and real estate). Bill the tour guide makes the time pass easily and the food is amazing, our favorite was the Irish tea room and the Somerset B&B (oh the view)! As you wind through some of the most historic streets in Canada, just as you think you could go for a nibble, Bill comes with the next tray of food. We had planned on lunch afterward, but no need, after the FUDGE we were set for a couple hours.

A combination of food and history makes this a great way to know Niagara-On-The-Lake. Our tour guide Bill, was a lifetime resident of the area and shared a lot of information on the history and architecture. This information was mixed with timely stops at some local food establishments for a tasting. We stopped at some places you might otherwiswe pass by and all were excellent.

My husband and I enjoyed the over 2 hour walk around this beautiful town. This tour is unique. Do not confuse it with a progressive meal. You will visit local shops and sample their wares but only a small tasting. However at the pizza stop you do get a slice of pizza and a beer. We enjoyed the food and meeting the shop owners. Intermingled with the food stops are architectural highlights of the town. We got a historical perspective of the town that we would never have gotten with out this tour. We try to do a tour whenever we visit a new place. We highly recommend this tour. At the end of the tour you will receive coupons. We used some for souveniers and used the gellato for immediate consumption. YUMM
