    Chinatown
    Stop: 3 hours -
    Your uniformed guide will meet you at the south-west corner of College Street and Spadina Avenue where you will set out on a walking tour that will showcase six different authentic Asian eateries. After a brief history lesson of Toronto, set off for your first tasting at a traditional Chinese bakery for an authentic delicacy that celebrates the Cantonese Festival of Spring. From here, you'll duck into a hole-in-the-wall joint that makes the best char sui boa in Toronto. Next up, you'll visit one of Chinatown’s oldest and most authentic restaurants to taste a dish from the Fukin province of China, that Chef Scott likes to nickname “Chinese Risotto”, along with the best dry-fried squid in the city. A few steps down the street, you'll get to taste and watch as a favorite street vendor demonstrates his family’s version of a Chinese crepe. Then it’s off for a Hong Kong dim sum experience where you will sit and taste four original dishes while learning the history of dim sum and its traditions. Walk off the feast by browsing an Asian food market before making a pit-stop for “window food”. Last but not least, to bring out your inner chef, you'll end the tour at Chef Scott’s favorite kitchen store which is a venerable “candy land” for some of Toronto’s top chefs. The tour includes all of preselected food and beverages (ten authentic Asian dishes) and restaurant gratuities. Tour guide gratuities are graciously accepted at your discretion.

A perfect way to spend the middle of the day, walking through Chinatown and getting the scoop on the surroundings with frequent stops for diverse Chinese foods: mains, dim sum, pastries and snacks. Portions are regular-sized; no samples here! I defy you to leave this tour

Chef Scott met us and began to regale my wife and I with stories about Toronto and Chinatown. We’ve been to old Chinatown many times and have tried lots of interesting food but figured we could always learn something new, and did we! Even though he gave us the chance to override

My partner and I booked a tour for Monday and loved it! No one else booked but Chef Scott informed us that the tours run even without a big group. We had all our questions answered and learned a quite a lot about the area.

Kelly, our tour guide, gave us a fascinating insight into the shops and history of Chinatown. The restaurants we visited were excellent and will repay a more leisurely revisit. On the down side though, there were only the two of us. The tour, advertised as 3 hours, was a bare
