I have posted a topic before asking for suggestions regarding my 5 days stay in Toronto. Me and my family decided to extend our stay for 8 days. It seems like 5 days is just not enough. My Mom wanted to take the comforttour.ca/holiday/… which is for 3 days. Now our itinerary have changed.
I have a few questions, mostly about how we're going to go about our transportation:
1.) How do we get from Pearson Airport to Holiday Inn Toronto Yorkdale? We'll go directly to North York from the Airport, since the pick up from the Comfort Tour bus is in Dufferin and Wilson “Costco Plaza” (693 Wilson Ave, North York, ON M3K 1E3). So that we'd be close to the pick up area for the 3 day tour.
Is there a bus that could pick us up directly from the airport and drop us off near our hotel? Or taking a taxi would be our best bet? My Mom's a little over 60 years old and I think the less walk she does would be better. Please let me know as well how much the transfer could possibly cost... I'd like to ask if there's 3 of us traveling with 3 luggages (1 luggage each), would we fit in a sedan in case we take a taxi? Is it true that if you have luggages, the taxi would ask for an extra charge? How long will the ride take?
I've read from searching the forum that a taxi from pearson to fairview mall could cost around $46, but fairview seems a little farther from our hotel. And also it was posted about 3 years ago, so I wouldn't know if the rates have changed already.
I would like to ask as well if there are any close by restaurant, grocery or 7-11 in Holiday Inn Toronto Yorkdale. For us to get food and water.
2.) If we're coming from our hotel in Holiday Inn Toronto Yorkdale to the pick up point Dufferin and Wilson “Costco Plaza” (693 Wilson Ave, North York, ON M3K 1E3), how much would a taxi cost and how long will the ride take?
3.) After our 3 day tour from Comfort Tour, they're supposed to drop us off at the same spot (Dufferin and Wilson) at around 8-9:30pm. Do you think we can immediately get a taxi from here to Holiday Inn Toronto Downtown centre? Or would it be better if we just spend the night in the same hotel (Holiday Inn Toronto Yorkdale) and just move to downtown in the morning? Also, how much would the taxi cost and how long will the transfer take?
4.) From our downtown hotel (Holiday Inn Toronto Downtown centre), how much would a taxi cost back to pearson airport? How long will the ride take?... Are there any possible cheaper rides like buses that could pick us up directly from our hotel and straight to the airport?
Sorry if I have too much questions. I just thought I'd ask everything in one post. Thanks in advance.
