Foodies on Foot
In spite of its name, the best tour offered by Foodies on Foot is experienced by streetcar. The ‘501 Streetcar Food Tour’ explores five different Toronto neighborhoods via the Queen streetcar, which is one of the longest streetcar routes in the world. You can also do the greatest hits on the ‘Best of Toronto’ tour for a slightly shorter, but no less delicious, insider look at the happening food scene.
