The Ultimate 5-Stop VIP Restaurant Tour

4 hours 249 —— Starts at 5:30pm Wednesday and Sunday

Get ready to go deep into Toronto's incredible culinary scene. This walking tour is tailor-made for the ultimate foodie! For this in-depth exploration of Toronto cuisine, you will visit 5 of the city's top spots for delicious food and drink. Every stop on this gastronomic tour is an award-winner — and reservations are much sought-after. Discover the city's exciting Financial District and downtown Toronto — and eat and drink along the way. (Route may vary depending on restaurant availability.)

With so many awesome restaurants to choose from, this tour is never the same twice. Expect exotic, global, seasonal and locally-sourced dishes perfect matched with exciting wines and cocktails. You'll also meet the movers and shakers in Toronto's exploding culinary and drink-making scene. And, of course, we'll highlight top Toronto attractions and points of interest along the way.

On this tour you will enjoy:

  • Wine, cocktail, beer or cider at each stop (and sometimes a mix!). Drinks will vary, but if you prefer only wine or cocktails, let us know in the comments at checkout.
  • Delicious food pairings to go with your drink. At some stops, we'll linger for a while and explore the menu. At others, we'll pop in for a quick sip and bite. All of it will be outstanding, and will give you the ultimate insider's view!
  • VIP greeting and exclusive access — no lineups, your seat is waiting, and so is your food and drink! We'll introduce you to our friends who will be happy to tell you all about what they do — and why it's so great.
  • Your ticket includes all food, drink and restaurant service — a gratuity for your tour guide is optional and would be greatly appreciated.

Starting point: The lobby of the Hilton Hotel145 Richmond St. W. Look for us near the concierge desk. From there, it's a short walk to the first stop. (Meeting point is subject to change; if so, you will be notified 24 hours ahead.)

Tour duration: 4 hours (maybe a little longer). You'll be walking! — about 5 minutes between restaurants. 

Refund and exchanges: Unfortunately we can not accomodate exchanges or refunds. This is because we have booked your seat and organized with our restaurant partners for food, drink and venue space. So please be absolutely sure of the date before you book. Thank you!
