You'll hit three bars known for excellent beer selections and the St. Lawrence Food Market. Expect a lot of walking with several opportunities to sit and visit over good beer with... More

I did the Beer History Tour one day and the Kensington Market & Chinatown tour the day after. They were both awesome. I've been living in Toronto for a few years now, but never really sought to know about the history of the city. Both tours were fascinating ways to help fix the problem. For the "Beer History" Tour, there... More

My wife and I did the Kensington Market and Chinatown tour and really had a great time. Mike was an excellent guide and pointed out many things that we alone would not have discovered!

Our tour guide David was excellent. He was knowledgable and fun and he loaded us up with facts about beer, the LCBO and the tour stops. The pace was good too. We had a great time, and as locals, we learned a lot more about Toronto and the beer scene. What a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Thanks... More

When I first read we were going to be celebrating a good friends bachelorette with a walking beer tour, I thought... Ok, bring comfortable shoes and take public transit... and not much else about it.

We did two tours with Urban Adventures while in Toronto, the “Beer makes history better” and the “Chinatown and Kensington Market”. We had Mike as our guide on both tours and his blend of historical facts and local knowledge kept us engaged throughout. On both tours Mike ensured we got to meet with local characters, try local beers and food,... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
