This was a fantastic tour my guide Neishim (apologies if spelt wrong)was a fabulous guide very knowledgeable and showed me the best sights of the city I especially loved the Bewery district the old buildings were amazing and my guide gave me some great tips for getting a coffee here in the morning. I’m so glad I booked this night tour as traveling on my own I felt this to be the safest way to see the city light up at night and it was amazing so thank you

I had not been to Toronto so this tour gave me an excellent overview of the city. I discovered many new areas and felt very comfortable taking the tour on my own. My guide was excellent and I loved the small group. Everything was well organized and I had plenty of time at each site to see what I wanted. I highly recommend this tour.
