    I recommend going to Toronto Island, it's really beautiful. During the day, you can walk around the Island depending where you are dropped off, but the walk can be more or less longer. You have a wonderful view of the city. If you want a break, it's the perfect place to go. You can also go just for the sun set. Personally, I love the view.

    This was an interesting and beautiful tour of the Toronto harbor. We learned the history of industry, plus the unique story of the islands. I highly recommend this one hour excursion. Captain Katie was funny and informative.

    I was looking for something my partner and I could do over the holiday break that was fun and shake off the rust a little bit when I found this class! I swear my phone is listening to me sometimes because things like these always seem to pop up online right after I finish talking about them. The class was so worth it though, and Marion is the sweetest instructor ever. My partner and I had no dance experience before and she taught us all we needed to know. If you do sign up for Marion’s class, make sure you have a good partner. The tango is meant to be a two-person dance, and if your partner isn’t engaged, like mine wasn’t unfortunately, then it will be hard when you do your final performance. I can’t recommend this class enough though.

    Cultural. Once a power plant, but now it offers various cultural activities. When I visited this place, there was a dj session with headphones. It was very unique experience. The view of the lake at night was great too.

    Old Town Toronto, so spacious to walk along this pier. Inside is the market but it was closed on the day we went. It is good to go with a loca they know all the ins and oouts of their town. Worth going

    I wasn’t entirely sure what I was looking at when I first saw these wave decks (there are at least five separate installations) but they’re so cool! What a neat idea.

    We ate at Joe Bird. Food was delicious, our Australian waiter was fun. Great views with the boats & planes landing.

    It is a nice park, though really it doesn't differ much from the rest of the waterfront along this stretch.

    This is the starting point for the ferry across to the islands. You can choose which location on the islands you wish to visit. There is also a statue of Jack Layton just outside the terminal building

    Everything was perfect: 1. Crew was awesome. 2. Ship had character. 3. Cruise style: light and casual bar and food service, as opposed to a 2-star sit-down roast-beef buffet on the other cruises (been there.... numerous times - so I can say it with confidence)

    Only thing I wish that happened is that the cruise was longer and to a better location. This is why 4 out of 5 stars.
    Our cruise went out for 30min towards the east end (not far enough to clear the islands), then turned around and went back the same way. 60min total. Quite boring in terms of view.
    I would have gladly paid 50%, or 100% more, for a 50% longer cruise to a more interesting end of the islands....

    But all in all - I would recommend.

    This walking tour was one of the most informative and thorough that I have been on. Nick was an excellent tour guide, who answered all questions and kept a timely pace.
