Excellent tour. Very informative. David’s explanations were very informative. Would have given 6 stars if a tasting had been included; a distillery tour needs a tasting to be authentic.
Fact and fun perfect Combo!
Nicole_B, Nov 2022
Very knowledgeable guide who also welcomed input from guests. Perfect combo of fact and fun! Lovely historical district to visit!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for the review! Happy to hear you found our facts fun, we hope you visit our lovely district again!
Nice but nothing more than that
Elad_T, Nov 2022
Not really worth it. A lot of stories about the distellery but not much more. It nice but not for a full hour.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
We are sorry you did not feel this tour was worth it and too long. This tour is described (we think) fairly accurately in the tour description, as a one hour historical walking tour of the Distillery District. We have operated for nearly 20 years and most guests agree, 1 hour is the perfect length of time to get most of the main historical points and buildings covered. Some would say more time is needed! To your point, we also offer a 30min Segway tour (and recently a 30min Walking tour) which is limited in content for those that only want a brief introduction to the area. We always recommend guests review each tour description before booking. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any other feedback or concerns!
History & Today
Teresa_S, Oct 2022
Guide had lots of details on the history of the site and colorful stories. Really enjoyed learning so many things about things you would easily just walk past without a guide! 🤩
Lovely, interesting Distillery District
Janice_L, Sep 2022
Eric led us on a fascinating tour of the lovely Distillery District. His sense of humor added to the fun as we learned about Toronto's economic history. I know that sounds boring, but it wasn't! Terrific fun that ended on a sweet note, a piece of chocolate. Nice job, Eric!

Distillery district walking tour
Janice_S, Apr 2022
Our guide, Isaac, was excellent. Brought to life the history and story of the district. It did go a bit over so if making a lunch reservation leave plenty of time. We reserved at EL Catrin which was great
A fun way to learn not...
JoanManel_G, Mar 2022
A fun way to learn not only about Toronto's distillery, but also about important things that happened during the city's foundation. The guide is a very nice guy. I was on my own, nad I think it is a perfect activity for solo travellers.
