The tour was very well researched, routed and delivered. Toronto still has some hidden gems. To top it all off, we rounded up the evening with a few pints of Guinness!
Overall fantastic tour - learned many things about Irish history in Toronto and saw some places I never knew existed. Dan is a great story teller and some of the amazing background details you will never hear anywhere else! Loved the tour, i would highly recommend!
I visited Ireland last October for the 1st time and became really fascinated by the land and its people. Such a tragic story and going on the run in my home town to explore the Irish heritage was like connecting the dots. Thank you Dan for being an amazing tour guy and the storyteller. I feel like I took the perilous journey from the island to the new land myself. Thank you so much and Happy St Patties to my Irish friends and cheers!
Really loved this run with Dan! We did the Fenians & Famine run. He is super knowledgeable (and passionate) about the information on this tour, and even as a Toronto-native I didn't know 90% of this info. Even as someone who's from here, I really recommend Torontonians to also do this tour just to brush up on the amazing history of our city. We tend to think that Toronto doesn't have that rich history that somewhere like New York or Chicago does, but we really do! Thanks Dan for reminding us. Running is a great way to stay active and do a tour like this.
The tour was a great way to explore Toronto. We discovered so many interesting stories about the Irish in Toronto and discovered places we would never have found on our own. Dan is a brilliant storyteller. Would not hesitate to book a tour with him again.
