What makes this tour special

Explore the buzzing Toronto, Ontario's capital, famous for its skyscrapers, glorious views, and history, on this 4-hour private walking tour where you'll see all the main highlights of the city, along three of the major neighbourhoods, including the Toronto Sign at Nathan Phillips Square, the iconic St Lawrence Market and the historic pedestrian-only Distillery District - a cultural hub set in quaint 19th-century buildings along cobblestone streets. 

On your private tour, you will:

Toronto is a major Canadian city set on Lake Ontario’s northwestern shore. It's a dynamic cosmopolitan city, with historic buildings alongside towering skyscrapers - all dwarfed by the iconic CN Tower. Enjoy the buzzing atmosphere and fascinating history of  Toronto on this 4-hour walking tour of its many highlights. 

Learn about Canadian culture as well as the evolution of the city as you discover three of the main neighbourhoods in the city, Downtown, Old Town and the Distillery District.

Canadians are famous for their love of sport and the outdoors, and of course, you'll hear all about the incredibly popular national sport - ice hockey - outside the Hockey Hall of Fame! 

St Lawrence Market is a real highlight of this tour - set in three historic buildings, the South Market, North Market and St Lawrence Hall - and selling everything from fresh fruit and veg to antiques, fish and meat to boutique clothing!  

Your tour ends in the pedestrianised Distillery District, set in quaint 19th-century buildings that once housed a large whiskey distillery. Your guide will orient you around this vibrant area before leaving you to explore the galleries, sculptures, bars, boutiques, and other theatrical spaces at your leisure. 

Come December, the annual Toronto Christmas Market takes over the streets.
