GOURMET FOOD TOURS

 

We believe one of the best ways to learn about a city is to explore its neighbourhood food markets, discover local produce and dishes, and meet area chefs and food artisans. C’est Bon’s gourmet walking tours are an ideal introduction to the national capital region’s vibrant food scene. Meet the bright lights and find the hidden treasures with the help of our expert and insightful guides.

Our current tours explore Ottawa’s ByWard Market, Preston Street, Chinatown, Wellington West,Glebe neighbourhoods, as well as Eddy Street in old Gatineau, and many more. These delightful epicurean outings last an hour and a half to two and a half hours each. They’re casual walking tours, so be sure to dress for the weather. Minimum of five people required for each tour.
