The Good Food Tour is a culinary experience company that was started in the spring of 2017. After discovering and enjoying food tours in several large North American cities we realized that we are privileged to live in a small town that has a vibrant culinary scene along with a unique history that would make for an amazing experience. A food tour is an exciting and unique way to explore a neighbourhood, or in our case a small town.
When you take one of our walking tours you'll be immersed in our history, architecture and art while experiencing some of the best food and drink in the entire Ottawa region. We get visitors from all over; locals who want to rediscover their home town, day-trippers from the Ottawa Region looking to get out of the city, and even a few international travellers!
After a very successful first year in Almonte, The Good Food Tour expanded to Carleton Place which is another historic mill town on the beautiful Mississippi River. We're grateful to have been nominated for an award this year in the Best New Company category by Ottawa Tourism and have received the Entrepreneur of the Year award from our local chamber of commerce. We hope you'll come on one of our tours and see the town through this distinct experience.
We have a passion for good food and for where we live, with its natural beauty of the river, the town’s architecture and rich history. But what makes our towns really special are the connections made with the friendly people who are proud of their towns and with the entrepreneurs who run the vibrant businesses here. Our mission is to offer you a meaningful premium experience where you can connect and discover through good food.
The Good Food Tour also feels strongly that no one in our community should go hungry so we have chosen the Lanark County Food Bank as our charity of choice.
