Great experience! Time overall for leisurely walking with detours was about 2h (it should be faster if you only follow the game). The challenges were quite easy. We loved exploring the neighbourhood and learning about its historical origins and origins of Canada.

An excellent option to get to know Toronto at your own pace. It gives you an overview of the main places and attractions in the city. A totally walkable route with good footwear.
