Embarking on a cycle tour is a holiday tradition for me, and this one with Terence stands out as my absolute favorite. Terence, an exceptional tour guide, infused the experience with his extensive knowledge, making the tour engaging and interactive. The bikes provided were not only comfortable but also easy to ride, and the thoughtful inclusion of a helmet and a bottle of water added to the overall convenience. Terence went above and beyond, offering me extra gloves when my hands got cold and capturing stunning snapshots of our cycling adventure and landmarks. I highly recommend taking this tour, especially at the beginning of your holiday; it serves as an excellent orientation to navigate the city. Trust me, this cycling experience with Terence is a must for an unforgettable and immersive exploration of your destination.

It was very nice, I was celebrating our wedding anniversary and decided to surprise my wife with a cruise along the Toronto shores. It was very elegant, the ambiance was calm and classy, the waiter was fantastic, and we even got a complimentary cheesecake in honour of our anniversary. I can't complain, the cruise by night was an incredible opportunity to take lots of pictures, take in beautiful views of the city, and have a romantic dinner. I was very pleased.

A fabulous small group day at Niagara Falls. An exceptional guide who shared with us her passion for her city and her profession. Don't hesitate, if you want to visit Niagara Falls, this is the organization you should choose.

Nick is undoubtedly the finest local tour guide in Toronto! His in-depth knowledge of the city, infectious good humor, kindness, and wit truly made our experience exceptional. I wholeheartedly recommend him – 100% worth it!

Great tour bus. We visited all of the top attractions and the tour guides were very knowledgeable.
