I took the brewery tour with a friend and it was more entertaining than expected. Our tour guide was very energetic and pleasant. We learned a lot about the history of the brewery and their current operations. Not to mention having a few nice cold...More
Called in after visit to CN Tower as it was just across the road. Lovely beer in a well restored building. Could have sat longer in pleasant atmosphere. Staff friendly and helpful. Would do the tour if I went again.
Tour was very well done end to end. Setting up the tour was easy. Shane was prompt to respond to requests. Our group was welcomed on time and the crew looked after our gear, computer bags etc. Beau was friendly and funny and enthusiastic and...More

I have gone on a few brewery tours at Steamwhistle over a 8 year period. Francis is honestly the best tour guide I have had. He started the tour giving everyone a high five which made us feel welcome. Then he SLAYED our 30 minute...More
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
We plan on visiting the CN Tower on Tues 20th June in the morning, and booking a tour of the Steam Whistle brewery nearby for 11:30. What time should we plan to do the CN Tower? Is 10:30 (giving us an hour) enough, or should we go earlier? Any idea on queues that time of day? And is there some kind of audio guide / info that makes it longer than just 'getting a few pics' ?

Before you book anything, consider flipping these two activities. Take the very first Steam Whistle Brewery Tour of the day at 11:00 am, then have lunch at the 360 Restaurant at the top of the CN Tower. It costs $36 each to ascend the tower but this charge is included in the cost of your meal (prix fixe 2-course lunch is $58 each, but there are other options, too, take a look at the on-line menu). The end result is, for an incremental cost of $22 you get a full meal and a much more...More
Toronto First time, additional suggestions (12 Replies)
Hi all, First time visit to Toronto upcoming. I am from Chicago, and for my birthday I wanted to visit a city I've never been. I picked Toronto, even though it is cold when I will be going (Feb 12-16), I am from Chicago so it won't be much of a bother. I have a few ideas of what I want to do after some research, but was hoping for some other suggestions. After reading over my list of what we plan to do, eat, etc, I think that gives a good idea of what sort of things we enjoy, but overall...More

The St. Lawrence Market is closed on Sunday and Monday so you are aware...also with Valentine's Day, you want to make a firm reservation as it will be busy at nice places that day...I'd also suggest going to the Distillery District and checking out Mill St Brewery and possibly El Catrin if you like Mexican tapas..

depending on what time you leave from Niagara it is entirely possible you will be in the midst of the morning Rush hour traffic - rush hour typically runs from about 6:30 am - 10am, and could be worse as there is ongoing construction on the Gardiner Xpressway into downtown - hopefully someone who commutes in from that direction can comment. Personally I'd skip Casa Loma, unless you have a burning need to see it. It's not something I'd think would appeal to your age group. I'd also re-think...More
