Overview
Soak up the atmosphere of Toronto on a walking tour that stops at the city’s highlights, from the CN Tower to St. Lawrence Market. Your guide eliminates the hassle of navigating and planning an itinerary on your own, and points out landmarks often missed by visitors and locals alike. At the end of the tour, walk away with a new perspective and recommendations for the rest of your stay.
What to Expect

This tour begins at Roy Thomson Hall – the home of Toronto’s Symphony Orchestra.  The tour then makes its way through the Entertainment District of the City. This is home to Toronto’s live theatre scene, major sporting events, the Toronto International Film Festival, hundreds of restaurants and bars and much of the city’s renowned nightclub scene.

The tour makes its way to the railway lands.  Once a sea of endless railways and trains, it is now home to the Canadian Headquarters of many leading global software companies.  We will walk past Toronto’s only remaining railway roundhouse which is home to Toronto’s Train Museum.

The tour then makes its way to Toronto’s harbourfront.  Only 30 years ago, harbourfront was home  to grain elevators, refrigeration buildings  and huge warehouses.  The city received the land as a gift from the Federal Government, and has through the years transformed this area into a waterfront park for residents and guest alike.  At this point of the tour, there is a short break so tour guests can do something of interest for themselves , be it, taking incredible pictures, visiting an artist hub, or dropping by a modern art museum.

The tour then continues back into the city on Toronto’s Path System (a 30 km/ 20 mile network linking the majority of building in Toronto).  We visit Toronto’s Union Station, the main train station in the city.  At 90 years old, the station is nearing the completion of a multi-year, billion dollar makeover. 

The tour then begins its final stretch with a stop at Brookfield Place.  This is home to the Hockey Hall of Fame, as well as the Allen Lambert Galleria – arguably one of the most beautiful spots in the city, designed by Spanish Architect Santiago Calatrava.  

We arrive in Old Town with its 200-year old architecture.  We see one of Toronto’s great new attractions, “the Dog Fountain”, we see both sides of Toronto’s famed Flat Iron Building and we end the tour at Toronto’s famous St. Lawrence Market.   Selected by the National Geographic as the world’s greatest food market.  We will show you some of our favourite spots in the market, and will leave it to you to have a look and decide for yourself what you would like to try.

Fantastic tour even in the rain

A fantastic introduction to Toronto!

What a great way to spend an afternoon exploring a new city, with such a great tour guide I completed the tour with an excellent understanding of how to navigate the central city and get around over the rest of my vacation in Toronto.

We didn’t look into bike tours so we can’t help you there. I would concur with Lisa S on distance, 2-3 miles for the walk. It is an easy pace.

My best guess is about 3 miles. Best to ask Dave at Buzz Tours
