Now that it’s approaching the summer, the hop-on-hop-off sightseeing bus of Toronto is definitely something to be checked off your bucket list! The 2 day bus tour allows guests to sit inside the bus, or for a more adventurous ride, on the top of the bus. Situated in the downtown core of Bay and Dundas, the sight-seeing bus allows you to get off at any site to explore. The bus visits spectacular sites and must-dos of Toronto, including the ROM, the Distillery District and the CN Tower. There is an experienced tour guide who takes you through Canadian history and fun facts of the places home to the city! During the summer, a short-boat ride is also included.

Being one of the sites that you hop-on-hop-off, the Distillery District is no less than classic when it comes to Toronto history. This Victorian neighbourhood comprises both an old vintage touch and a new modern look, that is spoken through its art and style of restaurants and businesses. The Distillery District has many breweries in the area and the tour teaches you a little bit about beer making and you can even sample some of their best beers! Chocolate is a favourite here, where a master chocolatier allows you a sample of some of the finest local chocolates around. A lot of history is embedded in this district and the guest is apt to learn a thing or two about Toronto.

Situated in downtown Toronto, a private tour with a local gives the guest the opportunity to explore the best attractions of the city. The guest is met at the hotel and can opt in to arrange which sites are worth seeing in the downtown core. This walking tour is super friendly for anyone who wants to get to know the city more and has that much time on their hands. (It even helps that everything is within walking distance in the downtown area). The local meets the guest halfway and even suggests any noteworthy places worth visiting.
