We went to the Naigara Falls yesterday and had a wonderful time with our guide. Kelvin who drove and provided commentary has to have one of the driest senses if humour I've ever encountered. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone, especially family groups.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

Sorry it has taken a while to get back to answering your question. To the best of my knowledge, pick up is only from Hard Rock Cafe in central Toronto or from outside main station. Cheers
