The Hop-On Hop-Off was a great experience with so much interesting information from our guide, Sidney. The boat tour was fantastic with stunning views of the Toronto city skyline, as well as of the Toronto Islands. Definitely something one must do when you are in Toronto. I did the two walking tours, one of the Waterfront and another one of the Toronto highlights, both with Ruby. She was brilliant, helpful with a wealth of information and helped me to take photos at the stops. I learnt so much about Toronto about its history and about the places of interest. Definitely worth doing if you are in Toronto.

we had Daniel for the walking tour, great guide, knowledgeable and friendly. Tolerable walking amount. We brought our puppy & stroller for the day. We continued on the bus. we kept the pup in stroller on lower level of bus which was not air conditioned. We finished the cruise tour with pup on lap on boat. Stroller was stowed away on lower deck. So the whole tour was very dog friendly which we appreciated!

The visit is great! Jason is a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and its history. You will be entitled to many anecdotes :) We were able to take our time and the visit lasted 3 hours in the end. It may seem like a lot, but it goes by very quickly! Also during the visit we were only 3 which was very pleasant. I absolutely loved it, and recommend 100%.

What an enjoyable afternoon! This was a great way to get an over view of the city.

Jason is the best tour guide ever!! I loved the total experience!
