A fun and professionally guided walking tour through one of Toronto's most fun neighbourhoods
Yonge Street has been referred to as Canada’s main street. It is Yonge Street that divides the city of Toronto into east and west. It is Yonge Street that people come to when they protest, when they celebrate, and, when they just want to be in the city.
On this tour we will start at the intersection of Yonge and Bloor. We will learn about the historic significance of the area. We will walk through Toronto’s colourful gay village and hear many of the stories of the struggles that the community faced over the years, and the bonds which have held this community together through some tough times. You will also see how this community thrives and embraces its diversity.
The tour then heads to the Maple Leaf Gardens, once known as the ‘Taj Mahal of Hockey’, it is now one of the most iconic grocery stores in the world. You can pick up a snack before the tour continues down through the hustle and bustle of Yonge Street. We make a quick stop at Yonge Dundas Square with its giant video screens, and move to the Eaton’s Centre and its 300 plus stores.
Dave showed us the Yonge and Church street tour, which included an arts district, maple leaf gardens, the path and other various interesting areas. His tours are intimate, small groups and very informative. Definitely recommend!
I would recommend Buzz tours to anyone who wants to visit the city. I learnt so much during the tour, and the guide was very passionate, knowledgeable and friendly. I will try to do another tour next time I am in Toronto.
This was my first experience with a tour guide in Toronto and I can say that it set the bar high, at first 2 hours sounds seems like a long time, but once you get going and start seeing toronto in a way you're never seen it before you don't notice the time flying by.
