Carytown Food Tour FAQs
How much food is provided?
Small samples are provided by each of our food partners. We prefer to emphasize quality over quantity, but for most people, there is enough food for a full meal. You certainly won’t want to eat immediately before or after the tour!
What if it rains? What if it’s cold outside?
The tour goes on! We can eat inside, but consider bringing an umbrella for walking between stops in wet weather. If the weather is unsafe, the tour will be modified or cancelled and appropriate considerations regarding refunding/rescheduling will be taken.
Can I book a private tour outside of regular tour times?
Yes, private tours are available just about every day of the week! For more information or to get in touch with us about a private tour, check out our Private Tours page!
Are gift certificates available?
