Tour was fun and interesting. Nice small group and stopped at some bars we would never have known about if our guide Jordan hadn't taken us. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon in Toronto. Very friendly group.

Our guide was very friendly, attentive, engaging and entertaining. He educated us on how to interpret the values that were shown on the menu and offered suggestions based upon our personal tastes. We enjoyed the guide, the tour of the Old Town and the company of the other tour participants.

Best part of our trip to Toronto. If you want a self guided tour around the city with 3 stops to bars that you likely wouldn't have gone into otherwise, this is for you. Tim our tour guide was friendly and amazing. Highly recommend!

All I can say is this excursion is not worth it and was a total ripoff. We paid over 100 CDN for 2 for basically a short history lesson of TO and half plate of nachos! We visited 3 pubs and had to pay for our drinks at 2 of them. At the 3rd pub, the Mill Street Brewery, everyone in the brewery received free samples, so it was no advantage of being on this tour. Just visit the many pubs in TO on your own and you will save money and get to drink alot more beer!

Our guide was great and knew more about beer than anyone I've encountered and I've taken dozens of brewery tours. Knew some great spots for sampling, and had really good recommendations at each. I would take this tour again without hesitation.
