    Fun little activity in Calgary.
    Ewan was an excellent guide as we scooted across Calgary. If you plan to be in Calgary for a few days I would suggest this at the beginning of your trip to get the lay of the land. If you are only in Calgary a day or two, as we were, it is an excellent way to see the city. The scooters are fun and easy to get the hang of.

    Fun and informative.
    Arrived a bit late for our tour (our fault) and got on the road a bit later then scheduled guide was happy to extend the tour at the other end to compensate as he had no afternoon tour. There was only my wife and I we are reasonably confident on the scooters so got to see a bit more then they showed on the itinerary. Really enjoyed it fun way to get around and cover a lot more ground then walking. Guide was informative and flexible giving us options at times. Price is up there but recommended.

    Great tour, great way to see Calgary differently
    Awesome tour. They allowed it to go ahead even though I was the only one who had booked. Really great way to see Calgary that otherwise wouldn’t be possible. Guide was very knowledgable. Would definitely recommend!

    Fun, scooting around to all the different highlights and learning a lot...
    My sister and I never used a scooter before, our tour guide Tina gave us a quick lesson and then off we went. We saw and learned a lot in 2 hours; landmarks, sculptures, parks, RiverWalk, bridges and different neighborhoods. Tina has extensive historical and contemporary knowledge of Calgary and it was such an informative deep dive in 2 hours and the scooters were so much fun. We had an amazing time, Tina was very comfortable to scoot and chat with. We also got to ask questions about Banff as we are first timers and Tina was more than willing to share several tips with us. I highly recommend the 2-Hour Scooter tour of Calgary. Thanks Toonie Tours!

    Try the Toonie tour of Calgary
    My husband and I took the Toonie bike tour around Calgary. It was a great way to see the city. Most of the the ride was super easy with many stops to hear more about a location and rest ourselves, if needed. There was only one very challenging hill. I had a traditional bike, but my husband used one of their electric bikes, which made the whole experience wonderful. I recommend!

    Great afternoon
    I had a great afternoon with Ewan, good idea to have a guide to show you the main things especially as I am travelling solo. Only comment may be the price but I enjoyed myself nonetheless,

    Fun, relaxed and informative ride, around Calgary, with lovely people : )))
    Great way to see the city and learn more about hidden spots. Well organised, relaxed and fun. Guide Toby was super sweet and guided the group through many safe paths and a few downhills ; ) She was attentive to the group's needs and created an enjoyable and personable tour experience on bikes, would recommend. Lovely gals in the group as well, warm wishes to all of you. Lots of love S.

    Great murals and a great way to see Calgary!
    I really enjoyed this tour! The murals were wonderful; a great variety, with some interesting stories and many were absolutely stunning. It was also a fun way to get a feel for some of the neighborhoods in Calgary. The guides, Daryl and Wendy, were well informed about the murals and the city and were great to talk to. Starting and ending the tour with a flight of local brews was a perfect touch. I highly recommend this tour!

    Great way to see and learn about Calgary
    We really enjoyed our tour with Jamie. Not only did we have a great time on the scooters, but Jamie shared so many interesting historical stories and facts about the city that we would’ve never learned visiting on our own.

Did the Toonie Tours 3 hour downtown Calgary walking tour with tour guide Jamie. Good weather today with sunny skies. Jamie was a fountain of information on Calgary’s big picture history including the people, buildings and factors that shaped the city. You want to get a solid introduction to Calgary take this tour.

The tour covered a lot, gave a very good introduction to Calgary and covered quite a number of its key city highlights and aspects.
The guide, Darryl, spoke very well, clearly and kept the group together throughout the tour. He was interesting, friendly, very knowledgeable and had a good humor. The pace was comfortable.
Highly recommended.

Great stroll around Calgary for first time visitors.
Jamie met us in Central Calgary and kicked off with a history lesson regarding how Calgary developed into the City it is today.
He used his background in architecture and his love of the buildings new and old shone through.
I loved the late 19th century buildings.
The music museum and the chocolate tasting were highlights for me.

A gorgeous day, interesting city and a knowledgeable guide, Jamie, made this a worthwhile way to get to know Calgary, especially for a first time visitor. Great insights on how the city developed, what makes it special, and tips for other fun things to do in the city. It's a tips-based tour, so the price is right! (And be generous with your tip... our guide worked hard for the $$). Highly recommend.

Our guide Toby was wonderfully entertaining and informative; we would never have found all the places she showed us had we been on our own, and her local and historical knowledge brought the place to life. After 3 hours my granny knees were aching a bit but the pace was very relaxed and most people would cope fine. Well worth the recommended amount of 20-25 dollars. Thank you Toby!

Fabulous tour of Calgary with Ewan!!! He gave us an excellent overview of both architectural and historical points of the city. He went at a casual pace and allowed time for photos. We saw many points of interest that would be missed during a casual walk through the city. I highly recommend this your😍

To be fair, we booked this tour and paid for this tour but they cancelled in advance so we did not take this tour. However, they cancelled only a couple of hours in advance so we didn't see that and went to the meeting site. There were other people there waiting, too, but they hadn't booked in advance. The company refunded our money.

An interesting easy walk round the streets around the Steven Avenue area. Our guide Ewan had a good knowledge of both the area and It’s history delivered in a cheerful easy manner, not a monologue that you can sometimes experience. Probably 3 hours is half an hour too long but overall well worth doing.

Best way to introduce yourself to downtown Calgary. Ewan showed us a diverse view of the city. We saw old and new buildings, inside and out. He explained the history of Calgary and was very knowledgeable. The pace was casual and Ewan was very thoughtful as to people’s needs. Ewan interacted with everyone in the group and was very enjoyable to spend this time with. Thank you Ewan
