Toronto is on the rise as one of the top destinations for unique food and culture experiences. Exploring the city beyond the typical tourist spots can be a daunting task which is why Toronto Food Tours has curated one of-a-kind culinary tours to help discover and explore our beloved city.
From the reaches of Riverside & Leslieville hot spots to the depths of private downtown wine cellars they offer tours that satisfy a range of adventurous cravings.
Toronto Food Tours is locally owned and operated by partners Chef Scott Savoie, the city’s original and iconic food tour guy, and John Anderson, a local restaurateur and pub owner for over 25 years.
They are dedicated to featuring the culinary & cultural diversity of the city through FOOD TOURS, DRINK TOURS, EDIBLE ESCAPADES, COOKING CLASSES & TASTINGS.
“My business partner John and I really wanted to create a company that was totally focused on the food and drink scene in Toronto, and between us we know the biz. Food and Drink are an important part of any social gathering so knowing where to go is important. In a city with over 10,000 restaurants and bars, choosing where to eat and drink can be a daunting task. We take our guests to some of our favourite places from dive bars to fine dining.” – Chef Scott Savoie
