“An absolutely amazing tour with Joshua. He was knowledgeable, funny and a great storyteller. Toronto is a big city, and he has a great route planned so that you get to see the most of downtown. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the big 6ix for the first time!”
“I had limited time in Toronto, so I decided to take this tour to get the highlights. Our tour guide Joel was great. He made the tour very interactive by getting us involved with trivia questions that were fun. We walked around and got to see the major neighbourhoods in Toronto. I learned a lot about the city and saw places I wouldn't have otherwise explored on my own.”
“I did the three hour city tour on the 7th September 2023 with Ally. This was a fantastic tour with Ally proving to be knowledgeable with just the right amount of enthusiasm that brings a smile to your face. It was fantastic to see some aspects of Toronto that I know without this tour I would have missed”
“The tour was great! It was a good tour to start my stay in Toronto! Tai showed all the highlights, together with a lot of hidden gems in the city. As a local, he really knew his way around and where the 'places to be' are. Would recommend this tour to everyone visiting the city!”
