Had a great day on the History is Better with Beer Tour in Toronto! 4 of us were toured through some great parts of Toronto by Jordon who was extremely knowledgable on the History of Toronto. We all learned some great history while enjoying great beer along the way. Will be booking another tour soon. Thanks Jordon!

The tour was fun and interesting and glad I got the chance to see some neighborhoods in the city I might not otherwise have visited. Lots of cool places to eat wish I could have tried them all. We did a bunch of snacking at a few stops though. Mike was a great guide who knew so much. And there were about 5 of us all together on the tour. It’s great when you can meet up with strangers but it feels like spending the day with new friends.

My boyfriend and I took this trip as a weekend date/getting to know our city better trip (We're both familiar with the city). Mike was our tour guide, and was funny, personable, and knowledgeable. He did warn us that he never shut up, but considering I wasn't in the mood to chatter and was in the mood to learn, he was the perfect tour guide. I'm a history buff, and he still managed to teach me something about the city, which was exactly what I was in the mood for. The one piece of advice I would give is bring hand sanitizer if you're squeamish - lots of snacking is about to happen.

I got a Groupon for a friend's birthday gift -- I wanted to go ahead and set the dates before giving it to her, but their website had no upcoming dates available. I reached out by email and phone, got an email response saying the dates would be posted in the next week. Two weeks later, still no dates I followed up - nothing. I followed up once more - nothing (not even a response for the latter two attempts). Needless to say, I had to request a refund from Groupon. It's a shame because I love local food tours and had I liked this one I would have certainly booked more and recommended to others. Poor customer service goes a long way.

Hello, and thanks for your review. I want to first apologize for the break in communication and not being in touch about the tour you wanted. Over the course of the winter we re-assess our tours and make adjustments to the schedule and the tour in particular you bought a Groupon for (Cool Toronto: Queen Street West) is one that we are not offering on a regular basis to the public going forward as it has seen to few bookings over the last year. When we spoke in the phone I had not yet made the final decision and there was a good chance that it would have been added to our schedule of public tours, but we will be offering it only as a private tour with a different cost. I should have advised you to request a refund right away, but I’m in the business of pleasing customers and not disappointing them. I’m very sorry that In this rare instance I was not able to get back to you in a timely manner about this change. This was entirely my fault. I have taken on a new operations manager so I won’t be a “one man show” when it comes to fielding customer inquiries any more and can promise this won’t happen again. Please feel free to reach out to me directly at jason@torontourbanadventures.com as I would like to offer you something to make up for all this.

Jordan was excellent! Was incredibly knowledgeable about both beer and Toronto history. I'm from Toronto and he had a number of facts & stories about Toronto that I did not know. As other reviews have mentioned he was funny, friendly and well informed. He also had the challenge of taking us through freezing temperatures and a blizzard. Really enjoyed the tour!
