The city bus tour of Toronto is well worth taking but don't book it with Toronto Bus Company as the likelihood is that they won't turn up!

Endured 5 hours Toronto - Niagara return, in the back of an appalling bus that had no suspension, as previous reviewers have observed these vehicles are dreadful. Bus was full on pick up so we got the short straw - back seat. My wife was thrown across the aisle at one point and we had stiff necks and backs from... More

I went on the Niagara Falls tour with this company in May 2016. Our guide, Gordon, was very charming and knowledgeable. I enjoyed his commentary and his ability to easily answer all my questions. I chose this company because it was recommended by my hotel - and it was a good choice. The bus was smaller, I didn't want to... More

Collected from our hotel within minutes of the notified time we set off for the Niagara area, about 90 mins drive. The outward part of the tour is well narrated by the driver - and very informative it is too. Our first stop was at the Wine Growing college where one of the young students explained how the wine was... More

We recently took a tour from Toronto to Niagara Falls and we booked via TBCL. We decided on TBCL over a few other alternatives due partially to reviews but also as they ran a smaller more "intimate" bus. We were told we would be picked up at 0900 from our hotel, and 0855 Gordon our driver pulled up with a... More

We had a great tour guide, a nice wine tasting on the way to Niagara Falls and a super visit to Niagara Falls. Well worth the hype! We had a decent but forgettable light lunch at a local cafe then did a boat ride on the Hornblower. On the way back we spent an hour in the town of Niagara... More

Overall, the tour was very disorganized and we would be unlikely to book with Toronto Bus Company in the future. We were initially picked up 15 minutes late from our hotel and the tour itself didn’t get underway until around 10:20 (20 min late). Then when we arrived at Niagara Falls, there was a great deal of confusion regarding which... More

Good value for money, tickets last 3 days and include a boat tour of the harbour. Guides provide very interesting snippets of information, frequent stops allowed you hop on and off and see all the sights

This was a brilliant day out from Toronto and our Driver/Guide, David, was a mine of information from start to finish. The way he kept up the information, anecdotes and identifying points of interest, all while driving a bus, over a period of 10 hours plus, was most impressive. The day itself included a lot of stops and seemed to... More

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
