    Amazing tour with Jason, he was so attentive, kind and interesting (and fun), he knows so much about these city and learned us quite well ! The tour worth the price ! I recommande it to discover the city and precisely China town and Kensington market deeply !

    Mike, our guide, was excellent. He's articulate, knowledgeable, knows the facts, expresses himself very diplomatically when dealing with the Canadian mosaic and the guests from other countries. The reason for the ' good ' rather than excellent is that we were expecting a 'tasting' tour of different foods.

    What a fun tour! Good size group, 5 couples, and wonderful guide. He had lots of great stories and knew lots of local history. He even (after checking with everyone to make sure it was ok with us) added 20 or so minutes of more fun stops. Highly recommend this tour!!
