Full description
Take a journey through over 300 years of Toronto history, seeing how this city went from a small muddy frontier fort to becoming the cultural and financial capital of Canada. Choose to join a public tour or enjoy a private tour. This is the perfect tour for lovers of history, finance, and architecture. Walk in the footsteps of First Nation trading paths, Bay Street bankers, and the heart of the downtown quarter as you gaze up at the CN Tower. Some other highlights include Yonge-Dundas Square, Ed Mirvish Theater, Mackenzie House, City Hall, the Toronto Stock Exchange, Union Station, and much more. The tour ends at the world-famous St. Lawrence Market where you'll learn why Toronto got the nickname “Hogtown", just in time for lunch. After the tour, it's up to you to decide if you'll grab a peameal bacon sandwich, a Canadian specialty.

Our tour with Marilyn was great! It was just the two of us with her so we were able to ask lots of questions and get a great idea of how it was living in this city. She took us around the downtown showing us the most iconic parts of the city and telling us plenty of different facts about every place. This is a great option for getting a first approach to the city and figuring out your next plans.

Phenomenal tour with Marilyn (Lenny). We go on walking tours to every city we travel to, and have experience a vast range of tour types and qualities. Lenny was fantastic, very personable and knowledgeable, gave us a fantastic tour of downtown Toronto with lots of fun historical tidbits. Highly recommend!
