By The Sidewalk Food Tours will soon be launching guided walking food tours in Toronto and we are currently hiring tour guides who are quick-witted, swift on their feet and passionate about food and the area. Tours are generally 2.5 to 3 hours long and have up to 16 people on each tour. Tour guide experience is beneficial. Local knowledge about Toronto (GTA) region is a must. It's a great job which earns you good money in a flexible role.

Tour guiding is a perfect fit for actors, musicians, stand-up comedians and all performers out there who love to entertain and lead a group of people! Guides must be funny extroverts who enjoy making banter, meeting new people and can tell a good story.

We provide you all the training and get you up to speed on Kensington Market’s (Toronto) history and restaurants. Once you’re trained and leading a food tour, you’ll be amazed that you’re getting paid really well for something so ridiculously fun and rewarding.

Shift hours depend on how many tours can you manage and number of tours. Per tour pay + tips/gratuities from the customers.

If you think you have the improv and leadership skills required, then please apply before all available Food Tour Ambassador positions are filled.
