The Basics

One of Toronto’s busiest neighborhoods, the Financial District is a stop on most hop-on hop-off bus tours, a convenient way for visitors to explore without the hassle of navigating on their own. Others opt for private tours, including a walk through Downtown and Old Toronto in the day’s customized itinerary. A private guide provides context about historic landmarks that visitors often miss when exploring alone, from the Flatiron Building to the Fairmont Hotel.

Toronto for Toronto cyclists!
We found Terrence to be a fabulous guide! Location was easy to find, bikes were well maintained and comfortable and instructions before heading out were clear. Although we are from Toronto, we were delighted to learn a few new things about this great city! The route and pace was terrific. Bike lanes throughout the route made us feel very safe. It was well worth the cost!
