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.
