British Colonel John By’s mission to build the Rideau Canal included planning the area’s first commercial district – the ByWard Market. Your C’est Bon Guide will weave you thru this bustling market zone, Canada’s oldest marketplace, of both local and international flavours.

The tour consists of food stops including the original BeaverTailsR stand and loads of information about this historic and culturally rich neighborhood, including the hidden Courtyards. You’ll sample a variety of ethnic foods. Four savoury and 2 sweet offerings will be prepared for you – the equivalent of a large meal!

It’s a buffet of flavours on this 2.5-hour experience! Even local residents will be surprised to discover the great food finds they never knew were hidden in plain sight.
