Buzz Tours Walking Tours - Experience the city

Bay Street & The Islands

Explore Tour

A guided walking tour through Canada's financial capital, and then a short ferry ride to the natural beauty of Toronto Islands

This is the ultimate tour of contrasts.  From the bustling streets and sidewalks of the Financial District, to the underground city called the PATH, to many of the iconic landmarks which are found in the core, to a spectacular harbour ferry ride, to a peaceful walk through the vast parkland of the Toronto Islands. This tour has something for everyone.

We will explore some of the great landmarks of the inner city, including Toronto City Hall, the Toronto PATH system, Brookfield Place, the Royal York Hotel, Union Station, and Maple Leaf Square.   When we have completed our walk to the city, we will board a Toronto Island Ferry, to take the short but very scenic ride to the Toronto Islands. We will spend approximately 30-45 minutes on the island enjoying the serenity and getting some of the most amazing pictures of the Toronto Skyline. At the end of the tour, our guests on this tour, will be given the choice to return to the city, or to stay on the islands and explore many of the beautiful spots that exist in the parkland.


Veronica was a very knowledgeable tour guide. She pointed out things during the tour that I would have easily overseen. She was also very accommodating with my two kids, keeping them engaged throughout the tour. I'll definetly recommend BuzzTours to my family and friends whenever they visit Toronto.

Tour guides were amazing! Loved the route - took us to places we had never seen or experienced before. Knowledge about the area was thorough, informative, and fun! Thank you!!!

My daughter did an ISE (International Student Exchange) back in 2015 with a lovely girl from France. We were so fortunate to have her come back to join us with her family this year. They really wanted to see Toronto and so we thought a walking tour would be perfect.

We did a Private Tour since there were 8 of us. Dave and Gerard were fantastic and took their time to explain things slowly to ensure everyone understood. Even to the point where they spoke a little French too.

It was a great day and I learned so much about Toronto that I never new.
