Yea you were early and we chatted a while beforehand.
Really happy you enjoyed.
This morning my husband and I joined Adam's historic walking tour. Unfortunately, it was raining quite a bit, but we loved every bit of the walk. Although British born, Adam really knows his Toronto history. We really recommend everyone to join this tour. Thanks Adam!!

Ah the gorgeous dog fountain! So glad you enjoyed and thanks so much for the brilliant review!
It was closer to two hours but I am glad it was enough to get all that history across!
This is the second time I do a ghost walk with the Tour guys and there is always something new. Our guide Bri was brilliant, funny and knowledgeable. But don't be fooled: between facts and paranormal, there is a very fine line that the guides...More

It was a large group, cool and grey day, and yes lots closed, but what a great tour and group!
Glad you liked the Distillery
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
