We are no spring chickens and the s ride was both doable and slightly chalk. Our guide was great, personable and informative. He paced the ride perfectly. Be warned, there may be a quiz at the end.

Great guide Roydon, very knowledgeable, and friendly. Finished our tour even though we had to sit in a coffee shop for about half an hour due totorrential rain!!

A brilliant tour of downtown with Terence. Lots of sites visited as well as Terence imparting interesting information. He certainly knows Toronto!

We actually ended up doing the island tour because the downtown tour was cancelled. Our guide Terrance was amazing.

Really enjoyed it- great tour around all the Kensington markets and Chinatown. I would do again!
