I never realized how much beer we were missing out on until we took this tour and were presented with a Beer Menu....A BEER MENU, I know, crazy isn't it? Our fantastic tour guide Jason had a plethora of knowledge around beer and Toronto. He took us to 3 pubs and when he heard that none of us ever experienced... More

We were highly impressed with our walking tour! We were the only 2 people and got a completely personalized experience with extensive history and lots of interesting details on our trip around these neighborhoods. Very, very worth it!

Although our visit was last November I have only just got round to writing this review. It was one of the highlights of our visit. Although we were the only two on the tour in went ahead as planned - making for a very personalised, but also relaxed and friendly afternoon. Our guide (Jason I think) was well informed about...

Our tour guide, Mike, was fantastic. Not only did we hear interesting stories of the pubs and history of beer, but he was very knowledgeable of Toronto's architecture and... More

We did the Kensington Market and Chinatown tour this morning. It exceeded our expectations. Our guide Jason was extremely knowledgeable about everything related to the neighborhood - the history, local businesses, graffiti art etc. etc. It was very clear that he is very passionate about what he does and is always finding opportunities to learn more. We especially enjoyed all... More

Came across the Beer Makes History Better tour while looking for craft brewery tours as a Christmas present for my boyfriend. Was super-excited, until realizing that they didn't run over the holidays! What to do?? Jason and James to the rescue! They put together an amazing three-hour Beer Makes History Better private tour. Jason was a pleasure to work with.... More

We had a great time with Jason exploring the history of pork production in Toronto, and its evolution towards sustainable and humane methods of animal husbandry. We also got to sample some of the best pork products the city has to offer, in wildly diverse settings ranging from a butcher shop to an urban hipster hangout to a pub. Like... More

We did the Beer Makes History Tour. It was an excellent tour! Our guide, Jason was informative, passionate and knowledgeable. The tour is a good size and the bars are a good example of what is around Toronto Downtown. We did a fun pit stop at the market too! Jason knows his beers but also was able to give us... More
