This Toronto walking tour is a great way for locals and visitors to discover the tragedies and triumphs that have punctuated this city's history.
This historical tour of Toronto will begin under the bright lights and electronic billboards of Yonge-Dundas Square, from where your local guide will take you down part (only part!) of the world's longest street and into the Financial District, where the majority of Canada's tallest buildings form canyons of concrete, glass, and steel.
Next on this Toronto city tour you'll head below ground, where the subway rumbles past and thousands of people navigate the PATH – Toronto's “underground city”, and the largest underground urban network in the world. Your guide will highlight the most interesting stories and fun facts about these engineering marvels while trekking south to the lake where one of the worst nautical disasters in Canadian history took place. Along the way, the very best and worst moments in urban development, history, politics, and sports will be discussed.
This Toronto tour concludes with a visit to Steam Whistle Brewery – located in a restored locomotive roundhouse – where the group can sample their signature Pilsner.
An optional brewery tour can be done at the conclusion of the Urban Adventures tour at an additional cost, and the CN Tower is nearby if guests would like to visit it after the city tour.
