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

Me and my wife done a few tours with Urban Adventures, and all of them were very cool! Jason was THE BEST tour guide, he speaks so clearly that even someone that can't speak english 100% will be able to understand the whole tour.

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

Jason met us on a wet, cold Toronto day and we walked around listening to his tales almost forgetting the weather. The Kensington Market area is fascinating! Lots of wonderful street art, amazing coffee and cafes. Thank you Jason

I bought this for my husband for our Anniversary this year and I'm so glad that I did. Jason, our tour guide, was phenomenal. Great guy with a wealth of knowledge about Toronto history and beer.. We weren't rushed and it was a nice walk to local watering holes. It was a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon

We were in town for a couple days and have done all the "regular" tourist stops in Toronto. So when we discovered the beer tour, we were excited. Jason met us at the appointed time and we were off to sample and learn about beer. What could be better, we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon visiting 3 local bars. In between... More

This tour was booked as a birthday gift from my fiance for myself and my friend - we're both 27 year old males. Jason was an amazing tour guide. Knowledgable, beyond belief about beer & Toronto - past and present. It's a walking tour, we went a little over 3 hours but it was well worth it. I would recommend... More
