Everyone loves having an insider. A person that can take them to the hidden gems that only a local industry insider knows. Come with us as we take you to some of our favourite gourmet and specialty food stores and discover many of the distinct neighbourhoods we frequent daily. We will be taking you to 5-7 food merchants and have you discover a few neighbourhoods while having the chance to ride the TTC (daily TTC pass included in the price). This tour is constantly changing, as, we have several favourites in different neighbourhoods, so, no two tours are exactly alike. We will send you the meeting point a few days before the tour begins. This is the tour equivalent of a secret supper club, you never know what to expect! Tour begins at 11:00 AM. www.foodiesonfoot.ca/foodies-on-foot-insider-food-tour
