The Good: The tour guide was good he knew his stuff was funny and kept people entertained. Tour is limited to 12 people so is a good chance to talk to people. The Bad: The drinks at the first 2 pubs are not included. It does state in the fine print which I missed. But it's weird for a beer... More

...Hi Shan, we are glad that you were entertained and hopefully learned a bit about beer and Toronto history. 

We do state that at the first two stops the drinks are not included. We do this for a couple of reasons. It keeps the price of the tour low. Other comparable four hour tours run at a price of $20-25... More

Mike is a fantastic tour guide. The day that we went on the tour was raining, so he made some adjustments to be inside more. Mike was knowledgeable, humorous, comfortable to be around, and entertaining. He was good at involving others, so that conversations developed instead of just listening all the time. We had a chance to learn about local... More

Excellent walking tour. Our guide was a local and had a unique perspective on the area. We enjoyed local history, food, and drink. I certainly would have missed many aspects of the neighborhood without this tour. Perfect morning activity and then spend afternoon revisiting shops and restaurants.

Had a great time with Mike! Very informative and definitely made it a fun and interesting time for us! FYI, for people like me who missed this detail, you pay for your own beer on the tour. However, all of the bars were very affordable, so our tab was not that great of an additional expense. Thanks, Mike!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
