To The Core

On our To The Core Food Tour we’re lunching with a tour that gets right to the heart of things downtown Guelph. Sample a to-die-for club sandwich, a little Taste of Greece, eat sweet treats from the great, great, great, great Granddaughter of one of the “27 boys” accompanying John Galt to set up Guelph, experience a Trinidadian specialty, refresh yourself with cold pressed juice, nosh on piri piri and bannock (!), and melt into a pastry that is oh so French. You’ll learn a little bit about the faces behind the food and the stories about our distinct businesses. In between these stops, listen to an old Guelph tale or two with a Taste of history, architecture and cultural highlights.  See what Guelph used to be and consider where we’re going next.

**PLEASE NOTE! This is NOT a gluten/wheat free tour. Vegetarians can be accommodated. We have carefully selected food tastings in partnership with our vendors that reflect the uniqueness of our area and its food scene, and this tour is not an a la carte-type setting.  These selections may include meat, wheat, and dairy products.  Please understand that by adhering to a Vegan, Gluten-Free, lactose-intolerant, or low-FODMAPs diet you will have limited tastings that fit your dietary preferences, and that substitutions may not be available.

Are alcohol tastings included in the tour?  We recognize that some – but not all – people may choose an alcoholic beverage or two on their tour and we’d like to keep our prices fair for all types, so we’ve added an extra Adult ticket called To The Core with Spirit!

Please arrive ten to fifteen minutes before the start of the tour so that we may start on time.
