Very friendly driver/guide. We were in town for a medical procedure and didn’t know the city at all, the booking staff could have been a little nicer when I was asking questions. Other than that it was great.

Fantastic day and our guide Ricardo was an excellent driver and guide. I highly recommend this day trip.
Take a combination 5 to 6-hour tour of Niagara Falls to see the mighty waterfall from several different perspectives from the Canadian side of the Falls, considered the best side to view both the American and Horseshoe Falls. First, fly directly above the falls and the whirlpool rapids to get a breathtaking bird’s-eye view during a 12-minute helicopter flight. See the power of Niagara Falls up close, onboard Hornblower Niagara Cruise boat ride "Voyage to the Falls".

Experience breathtaking views from the top of the tower while choosing from a variety of mouthwatering dishes. Your last stop is "Journey Behind the Falls", where you'...
The tour was fantastic. Our guide, Joe was educational, fun, and polite. We were a little surprised at it being a group tour as there was no mention upon booking but lunch with a total stranger turned out to be an amusing twist. The only thing I feel could have been better was the lunch at the Skylon tower. With that view and how highly spoken of they are, we had greater expectations. We were given 3 meal options of which my husband and I chose 2, both were greatly disappointing. Im not sure if its because it's part of a tour they didn't put in as much care or if that actually is their standard. However, we understand that it is not our guides fault that the meal was subpar which is why we chose not to reflect that in our star rating. None the less we canceled our dinner reservations there for the following day.
After a short ferry ride across the harbor, you'll get on your bike and explore the car free neighborhoods on the eastern islands, and visit historic landmarks such as the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse and the Royal Canadian Yacht club. Of course, you'll also enjoy the scenery, including the parks, the beaches, the cottages, and some incredible views of the Toronto skyline. Along the way, you’ll hear stories about key people and events from the last 200 years of the island’s remarkable history. The tour is suitable for beginner to advanced riders, as the ride is an easy pace, making plenty of stops to talk and take in the sights. The guides are expert city riders and very familiar with Toronto.
You've been to Toronto Island, went to Centerville rode the zumaflum but you've never *really* seen the islands. This tour has it all some history, some day to day Toronto island life, 1 ghost story and tons of photo worth stops. It's a light bike ride and a great way to see the city harbour from different view.

Our guide was so sweet and knowledgeable, she answered questions and told us all the history! Loved it so much!
Tour one of Toronto's newest and oldest landmark locations - popular with tourists and locals alike.

The tour includes a visit to Mill Street Brewery for a brief talk.
I was the only guest on that tour and my guide Nicole was perfect! She was so kind and knowledgeable. She knows everything there is to know about Distillery District and also tells some funny facts. I would recommend everyone to book this tour!

We very much enjoyed our Toronto Island twilight tour. We got to see parts of the islands that we would not have seen without the help of our well informed guides Terence and Lorraine. The Islands are steeped in a rich past intertwined with that of the city across the water. I would also recommend the city tour which complements the Island tour perfectly. If you dont have a lot of time these tours enable you to cover a lot of ground in addition to learning a lot about this wonderful part of the world. Thank you Terence and Lorraine for a lovely afternoon!
Fantastic tour!!! I absolutely enjoyed learning the history behind each food spot and the samples were a good size (including drinks!) As a solo female traveler, I felt the tour was super inclusive with the rest of the couples. This is a must if you are visiting Toronto!
Pick up at various points in the city. Small group in a very comfortable mini bus. Very friendly and attentive guide.
It was a beautiful tour, we learnt a lot about Toronto island. Great guides as well!
Great way to find out about the city and islands ! Great guide
