This running tour was a great opportunity to see a lot of Toronto and learn a lot about the history of the city in a short amount of time! It was perfect for me as I was only in Toronto for the weekend and saw where a lot of the best city sights were located to go check out afterwards! Dan was a great tour guide and very easy to talk to! If you are a runner and like history and/or sightseeing- go on this tour!

I thoroughly enjoyed my one hour forty minute running tour. Was fun!! The run was comfortably paced. Dan was a super host; personable, full of information and answered my every query - he was a pleasure to run with. And a pretty good photographer too - got a great photo! I highly recommend the Toronto History and Highlights tour.

I really enjoyed my tour. Dan was a really knowledgeable tour guide and was very accommodating whenever I had a question or a photo request. I learned so much about Toronto. It’s a super cool city with lots of history and much to do. I’m looking forward to spending more time there in the future. The running was a good workout as well and ideal for runners. I enjoyed my tour and definitely recommend it to other people living an active lifestyle.

C'est définitivement la meilleure façon d'en apprendre davantage sur la ville de Toronto. Nous avons la chance de voir tous les points importants et Dan prend le temps de nous expliquer des anecdotes sur des lieux que nous n'aurions pas pu apprendre autrement. Merci Dan!
