Description

On this tour, your guide will give you an orientation of the neighborhood that includes places most visitors never see, and stop by several shops where you can purchase local foods to try.

Explore Chinatown and Kensington Market, the most colourful and multi-cultural neighborhoods in Toronto and sample both local and international delicacies as you wander the often crowded (but always friendly) streets lined with unique vendors and specialty shops. Learn how the neighborhood has evolved from a working-class Jewish market into a working-class bohemian market and one of Canada's largest Chinese communities. Several waves of immigrant settlement over the past 100 years have splashed colors, sounds, and flavors from the four corners of the Earth throughout Kensington Market, and yet there is not a McDonald's or Starbucks to be seen. Bare brick walls have long been covered with graffiti murals - and much of it is stunning (and done at the request of the buildings' owners)! You'll certainly want to hang around Kensington Market on your own for a while after your tour to pick up some vintage or one-of-a-kind souvenirs or gifts.
