Overview
Learn about Toronto’s beer scene on a walking tour of the city’s best pubs and historic neighborhoods. Traveling with a guide ensures you see unmarked points of interest that most visitors miss if exploring on their own. You’ll hear about the history of beer in the city, taste local brews at three highly rated pubs, and get help navigating St. Lawrence Market. A small-group size means plenty of personal attention.

What to Expect
Meet your guide in the afternoon outside the Hockey Hall of Fame on Yonge Street. As you walk through the streets of Old Town Toronto, learn about the role beer has played in the history and growth of the city. The amount of bars in Toronto can be overwhelming—on this tour, relax and let the guide choose for you. At three highly-rated pubs, sample local beer as you listen to historical anecdotes often missing in guidebooks. Continue on to the iconic St. Lawrence Market, where your guide navigates to the market’s best vendors. Enjoy a handful of samples before moving on to Toronto’s Distillery District, where your guide will point out unmarked highlights many visitors miss. The tour ends here, leaving you with enough time in the evening to grab a bite or explore further on your own.

Jordan was great, very informative about Toronto. Took us to some great boozers with excellent beer. The nachos and butter tarts were an added bonus that we didn’t expect, very nice.

Sam is a gem! We all love having locals on our tours since you can take advantage of the recommendations from our guides a lot easier than visitors who have a limited amount of time to spend in the city. Cheers!
