We recommend this tour for children over the age of 13. Younger children tend to get bored with the story telling and are distracted by everything else going on. We hope you’ll treat yourself to childcare and a little adult time. Non-alcoholic beverages are served for people under 18 years of age.
All gratuities to our vendor partners have been taken care of in the price of your ticket. Gratuities for your guide are greatly appreciated, although not mandatory. The standard gratuity in the service industry is 15%-20%.
Yes, bathrooms are available during the tour at selected food-tasting locations. Our guides will point out these important “comfort stops” as the tour progresses.
The tours are held rain, shine, or snow. For tours in winter months, rest assured we’ve planned them so the walk is a short distance between establishments and we’ll spend most of our time cozied up inside. Do check the weather conditions on the day of your tour and dress appropriately – rain gear, toques, mitts, scarves and layers!
Bring your camera. We love social media and encourage you to share your experience. We provide plenty of fluids on the tours but if you get very thirsty you may want to bring your own water bottle. When it’s really hot out, we recommend an application of sunscreen on exposed parts of the body and a lightweight pair of sunglasses. During the cooler seasons it’s important to layer your clothing and consider bringing gloves, hat and a scarf as Calgary’s weather can change from moment to moment and we tour in all weather.

My sister and I took the Inglewood Edible Enticements tour. We are native Calgarians and walked away feeling a renewed love and appreciation for this quirky and historic part of our city and the entrepreneurs that have made it so. I highly recommend this tour and will be signing up for others.
