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 this would be a great way to show off where we live. 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 get to know about 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 is expanding to Carleton Place which is another historic mill town on the beautiful Mississippi River. We're very proud to have been nominated for an award this year in the Best New Company category by Ottawa Tourism. We hope you'll come out for a visit to see why!
We have a passion for where we live, with it's natural beauty and rich history. But what makes our towns really special are the friendly people and the entrepreneurs who run the vibrant small businesses here. Our mission therefore is to help Almonte and Carleton Place grow and prosper by introducing people to all of what they have to offer. We do this through the diverse and growing food scene, where possible showing you behind the scenes to see how things are made. The Good Food Tour also feels strongly that no one in our community should go hungry so we have chosen to to give a percentage of our ticket sales to our local food bank.
