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.

Very good tour and how lucky we were that we were the only 2 people. Joel was very nice and knowledgeable. We were staying for 9 days so it was a nice way to get our bearings

The guide was perfect and knew how to tell us as much as possible about the city of Toronto.

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