About
With up to 4 guests, we'll take a walk along Danforth Avenue, Greektown's main street where part of the film "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was filmed. First, we'll pop into a long-standing, family-run Greek cafe to enjoy an authentic Greek coffee. Fully caffeinated, we'll walk to the heart of Greektown all while I reveal some neighborhood secrets, personal stories and cultural traditions along the way. We then go off-the-beaten-path and treat our palates to a traditional Greek street-food style lunch and finish it off by sweetening the experience with fresh and delicious Greek pastries, the ultimate in 'comfort food' sweets! Please note - unfortunately, we cannot accommodate vegans and guests who have aversions to gluten, eggs, nuts, and dairy. Discover why Taste Toronto's Greektown! is a top rated, 5-star Experience not to be missed! *Price includes all taxes and fees. *Gratuities are not required but appreciated.

Great morning in Greektown
Oct. 2019
I highly recommend this tour. I have done similar tours in other cities and enjoyed exploring my home city even more. Jim, our tour guide, did a wonderful job of bringing the experience of Greektown to life. He is entertaining and knowledgeable and simply easy to spend the morning with. From the great Greek coffee to the final pastries the whole morning was lovely. Just do it!

Greek Town
Oct. 2019
I along with a group of ladies who have been part of a gourmet cooking class for over 20 years wanted a different food experience. Our first choice was Greektown Street-Food tour. We had a wonderful morning with Jim our tour guide. He is charming and extremely knowledgeable about the Greek culture in general, about the alluring food and it's customs. He told stories of Greek town from his perspective growing up immersed in this environment. We all thoroughly enjoyed our outing with Jim.

Loved it so much, we came a second time!
Oct. 2019
After enjoying the the street food tour so much earlier this year, my partner and I decided to return for a second tour this fall - this time with my parents. We absolutely loved it. Jim brought us to a couple of new places, which made the it unique and special. We continue to recommend it to friends and family and will likely return again in the future!

Review of Greektown Tour
Aug. 2019 • Couples
I would highly recommend this tour. The food is amazing and Jim the tour guide is equally amazing. He is so personable, full of knowledge and welcoming. His enthusiasm for his heritage and his home are evident throughout the tour. The tour provides an opportunity to explore a neighborhood in Toronto that may otherwise be overlooked. This is one tour you don’t want to miss

Great Tour!
Jul. 2019 • Friends
Time spent with Jim Bamboulis discovering a different side of the Danforth is well worth it!

Authentic experiences, delicious food and little snippets of history that get you better acquainted with the rich Greek culture.

A special and awesome way to learn, eat and have fun! – Thanks Jim – will be doing it again soon.

Demetri is second generation Greek-Canadian and grew up in Greektown. His knowledge of Greek culture and cuisine is truly remarkable! As it happened, my wife and i were the only people on his tour (he never books more than 6). Best Gyros we've had since leaving Europe! The pastry shop is over the top! Thanks!

Great Tour
May 2019 • Friends
My friend and I did this tour on a Sunday morning. It was really enjoyable. We enjoyed all of the stops. The food was awesome, we were full for the rest of the day. We really enjoyed a walk through the quiet neighbourhood surrounding the Danforth. We were able to peek in on Sunday worship in two different churches, we were amazed how well attended the services were. Our guide was outside the Pape subway station when we arrived, he put us at ease and was easy to talk to. I would encourage anyone to do this tour.

Great introduction to Greek food and culture in Toronto
Oct. 2018 • Couples
We always like to do a general food tour when we visit a new place, but decided that because Toronto is a city of such diverse neighbourhoods, cultures etc, it would be nice to explore one of these in greater detail. Jim was a wonderful "Greektown" guide and gave us a great insight into the local area and food culture. We particularly enjoyed our trip to the bakery & the huge variety of Greek desserts! The tour is very good value, just the right amount of food and information and a great way to get off the beaten track... highly recommended
