Loved the tour, great way to see the city, especially as we had never been before. Joseph our tour guide was amazing and so funny, and Abraham the driver was brilliant. The only downside was that we didn’t have any cash to give as a tip! The tour is great for going from one land mark to the next and if you want to jump back in the same bus as we did you just need to wait 2hrs, plenty of time to explore. Would absolutely go again!

Mia was our tour guide and was very engaging and knowledgable. We were a large group but she managed us very well and we covered a lot of space in downtown Toronto without feeling rushed. We learnt about the history of the city which I never would have experienced walking through the city on my own.

What a fantastic experience, pick up location was easy to find, the bus was on time and very clean. the guide Pete was very informative and funny! This is a must do tour when visiting Toronto I will definitely recommend GrayLine to everyone who is visiting this great city.

Peter was an excellent guide, he explained to us all the important spots around the downtown. Since the day of our trip was snowy, this tour was an excellent choice to know the city in a comfty way.

The guide paid attention to the things that I never noticed before while walking in Toronto
