It was lovely to go on this tour with Bree and Mike; my tour had only three people including myself. Since the weather was starting to cool down, the tea tasting at the end of the tour was very satisfying. We also saw an interesting and unexpected hidden spot in one of the "neighborbood" restaurants. I'd recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the most notable parts of Kensington Market.

Bree and Mike are such great hosts that make the time and effort to show off Kensington Market as they know and love it. From their favorite spots and little bit of history, you get an awesome feel for the neighborhood. The tea tasting was one of a kind and a wonderful way to end the experience. Highly recommend this experience for real insight into Kensington as well as great conversation!

A great experience of the Kensington Market. Bree and Mike have curated a very nice mix of all thinks Kensington has to offer. Starting with some Caribbean flavor, moving on to tea tasting of some really complex fine teas, and then a tour of the other diverse local stores in Kensington. They are very personable, and sensitive to your needs while on the experience. If you want to explore Kensington like a local, Bree's experience is the way to go.

Eye opening as well as immersive, for sure! Mike was super friendly and more than willing to answer our questions & give us recommendations while we popped into various shops. I'd recommend this tour to anyone, but I'd especially recommend it to those who are looking to feel like a local or see a vibrant, diverse side of Toronto!
