Meet your guide in the afternoon outside the Hockey Hall of Fame on Yonge Street. As you walk through the streets of Old Town Toronto, learn about the little-known role that beer has played in the history and growth of the city.

The amount of bars in Toronto can be overwhelming—on this tour, relax and let the guide choose for you. At 3 highly-rated pubs, sample local beer as you listen to historical anecdotes often missing in guidebooks.

Continue on to the iconic St. Lawrence Market, where your guide navigates to the market’s best vendors. Enjoy a handful of samples before moving on to Toronto’s Distillery District. Going with a guide is essential, as many of the area’s points of interest are unmarked and easy to miss.

The tour ends here, leaving you with enough time in the evening to grab a bite or explore further on your own.

Beer is not included in the purchase price. So you could order a soft drink. I would check with the organizers just to be sure they do not have an age restriction.
