      A good time
      Born and raised in Toronto and still learned a bunch of things I didn't know about the city and the islands. Guide was friendly and entertaining.

      Great way to spend an hour
      Spur of the moment decision to take the tour but had a great time. Really good views of the city, interesting commentary and just long enough to be interesting but not boring. Give it a go if you're on the water front with an hour to kill.

      Refreshing view of Toronto
      First summer event for my wife and I as we are new to Toronto and it was really refreshing. The history behind the sites was quite interesting. The guide was really funny and made the cruise fun. I would definitely recommend it.

      Very old boat, covered up with windows and glasses
      Pros: Live narration, staffs were good Cons: Boat is very old, and it's covered with glasses from all around. If you want to take pictures, it wouldn't be good quality (due to the lights reflection on the glasses).

      Fun facts for Toronto locals
      Our colleagues booked this tour for a summer work excursion and we had a great time! Learned some new things about our city that we didn't know before. Only wish it was longer!

      Lovely
      Really had a nice time. We went at 8 before it got too dark and before there were too many people. We had an amazing guide. It was lifesaving to have a breeze in 41°C weather. Very peaceful, but we could’ve gone a bit further.

      Pleasant ride around the harbor
      Nice hour long trip around the harbor with interesting tidbits about Toronto. We had no idea there are multiple, some inhabited, tiny islands in the harbor. Our talky was Simone, who had good personality and was great at her job. Was a nice item on a long weekend trip to Toronto for relaxation.

      What a beautiful and informative ride !! The ladies, who captained the ship were funny, made the experience fun offering facts without making it feel like a speech was being read. Extremely relaxing. Even my teens enjoyed it !

      Great way to see the City and hear something about it
      Sunday morning trip with Captain Hannah and Sean on the mike - very informative tour and got a completely different perspective of the city from the water. Thanks for the tip in walk up tickets for the Blue Jays - has fun at the baseball too! Great tour 😎

      Never Dissapointing
      After trying different companies offering a variety of cruises in the Toronto Harbour, I just decided that this was the best choice! After all, except the dinner cruises - when food has not impressed me at all - most tours are very similar, following pretty much the same route and taking about the same length of time. So! How is this company better than others? To start with, they seem to be well organized and it is never a long wait. The boats are punctual and their guides are well informed and funny. Secondly - and why not - the prices are fair. Why pay 25% or 50% more for the same service or worse? And just to make my point, aside from the other minor advantages, most of all I appreciated the fact that your time is respected and they are at the dock when they say they will be. If you book your cruise on line or buy your tickets at the embarking point - you can still be sure you can make it on time at your next planned objective, They are reliable and that scores super point with me!

    I booked a 1-hour tour with Toronto Harbour for my birthday and my friends and I loved it. Easy booking, and had no issues receiving electronic copies of my receipt or email reminders of the tour. The staff was very friendly, and the boat was brand new which was very nice and they sanitized it after each use.

    They should have people seat every two rows so we are 6 feet in front, and 6 feet behind one another. Folks were too close behind us which I was uncomfortable with. The aisleways were huge so folks were more than 6 feet next to me. We had to keep our masks on while on the cruise.

    We also did not leave and return on time. We departed a few minutes past the stated departing time so our cruise was only about 45 minutes. My friends were not very impressed with this because the ticket said 1 hour. I do wish they went around the island. They just sailed to the entrance of the island and turned back around.

    Overall, the weather was perfect and the cruise was enjoyable. Interesting facts were mentioned throughout the tour. This was my first boat tour but I would say the service was average. I would book with Toronto Harbour Tours again.

    Would definitely recommend, the tour was beautiful (especially nice around sunset) and the tour guide was funny and informative. The tour was the perfect amount of time and the guide even offered to take photos of us on the boat which was kind and thoughtful. Good fun and easy to find where you need to go.

    The tour was amazing. The weather was beautiful and the staff was very friendly and comical. One was driving the boat while the other was narrating however they both were funny, interacting with eachother and the customers. It was a nice relaxing ride with beautiful views of the Toronto skyline and the park areas. We booked this tour last minute because we decided we needed a boat tour on our last day in Toronto and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.We took the 3pm tour on a Sunday.

    Delightful one hour tour of the Toronto Harbour and the unique surrounding islands. The narrator was very entertaining in providing interesting details about the Toronto skyline and islands. The operator of the boat was most skillful in operating her boat.

    This was a great short tour of the Toronto harbor and islands. The live narration was very funny and interesting. Highly recommend this tour to catch some amazing views and pics of the Toronto skyline as well as airplanes landing at the Billy Bishop airport.

    A brilliant tour around the Toronto harbour and islands covering the history of Toronto. I booked the tour online on the same day and the process was smooth. The collection point was very easy to find with their unique red building standing on the side of the bay area.

    The tour guide and the captain were very knowledgeable and helpful, talked through the history and general knowledge parts and walked around answering questions at the end of the tour. Overall a very enjoyable trip which cost around $29 per head.

    With only 48 hours in Toronto this was a great way to view the city and the skyline and to learn a little of the history of the harbour area. Our captain and guide were friendly and knowledgeable. The narration was interactive and provided a great introduction to Toronto. We'd recommend this to anyone with a short visit to Toronto.

    The sightseeing boat tour is a must-do when visiting Toronto. You get beautiful views of the city skyline and there’s lots of photo opportunities. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city, giving you fun facts about Toronto’s history along the way. It was very fun and would recommend to anyone visiting Toronto.

    Interesting tour for first-time Toronto visitors. Wind made for a COLD tour. We left 15 minutes late because they were waiting for guests who were running late. No big deal but when they promised to still do the full one hour tour, but instead we had a 45 minute (if that) tour, that seemed a little lazy. Great photo ops of the TO skyline! Had to wear masks, even outside and even when the boat was half empty - silly.

    This harbour cruise really delivered. We wanted to get to know the city more, learn about the Toronto Islands and get great pictures of the Toronto skyline.

    It delivered on all of these. It's a reasonable price for the service you get.

    Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. She taught us things about the city which other tour guides had not.
