Seeing the city by walking is great while everything is so close. Robert could though have had a bit more of storytelling to make the tour more interesting.

A great experience! Robert was a good host who could adapt the experience to our interests. First he showed us around St. Lawrence Market, sharing his expertise about Toronto and the local food culture. Afterwards we walked through old town while Robert continued sharing his knowledge about the different buildings that we saw. We couldn't think of a single question that Robert did not have the answer to. The experience ended with a tour of the Steamwhistle brewery that, while not guided by Robert, also was a very pleasant and informative experience. Overall we wholeheartedly recommend this experience to anyone!

Robert is knowledgeable and energetic guy. I'm living in Toronto for 1 year. But I didn't know much about Canadian (Especially Toronto) history. I was easy able to understand what he told me. I really appreciate his thoughtfulness. Time flew so fast, but it was great experience for me. It was a great tour. I should have join this tour earlier. Thank you so much!!

Robert was great in showing us around and giving us the history of the city. There were parts of the town we didn't know existed until we went on his tour! Tasting the local eateries was a treat as well as the beer at Whistle. There are a lot of "number 1's in the world" titles I wasn't aware of and was glad to experience them.
