Toronto Urban Adventures
Day tours, with a local
Toronto Urban Adventure offers Toronto walking tours designed to delight both locals and visitors alike! Get under the skin of the city and into the nooks and crannies other Toronto tours don't go! Toronto is best experienced in a small group with a local guide eager to share what they love most about their city. Located on the shore of Lake Ontario, Canada's largest and most multicultural city has something for everyone! Indulge in this great city and see it from a local’s perspective on a unique Urban Adventures Toronto walking tour.
Toronto is a city bursting at the seams with culture; foodies can indulge in cuisine from all over the globe. Museum lovers can lose themselves in gallery upon gallery of art, exhibits, and artifacts. Outdoor enthusiasts will discover Toronto is a "city in a park" with swaths of green space dotting the downtown, cutting through the city in deep valleys, and throughout the metropolitan area. Even if you only have 24 hours in Toronto, the city will be sure to impress you.
The city's seasonal and cultural celebrations are as varied and as spirited as its people, whether it's the Toronto International Film Festival, Pride Week, Caribana, or the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Toronto is also a hotbed for live music, comedy, theatre, dance, and other performing arts and has seen many of its artists reach the highest levels of achievement both nationally and on stages around the world. Whatever you're interested in, there are plenty of things to do in Toronto.

From the people that brought you 'Beer Makes History Better" comes a Toronto tour of porcine proportions. Sample bacon, pork, and sausage, find out about ethical pig farming at a local butcher, and learn about the role of the pig in pop culture, or is that pork culture?more...
Beaches International Jazz Festival
Place: Queen St. East at the Beach - [ 16/07/2014 - 25/07/2014 ]
What can we say, we love jazz in Toronto. Spanning several venues including a 2km stretch of Queen St. East, it's hard to escape the sultry sax sound, tap of the high hat and other jazzy sounds in July - but who would want to?Caribana
Place: city-wide - [ 14/07/2014 - 02/08/2014 ]
The largest street festival in North America and a celebration of Caribbean culture like no other with colourful costumes, energetic rhythms and spicy food galore! Caribana events happen throughout the summer but the climax is certainly the annual Caribana Parade in August. http://www.caribana.comToronto's Festival of Beer
Place: Exhibition Place - [ 05/08/2014 - 08/08/2014 ]
Live music, events, crowds, entertainment, and lots and lots of beer. You must be 19+ years of age to enjoy this festival with the thousands of other beer lovers. It's like a big Canadian backyard party.more events...

08 Jul 2014 Very good service and atmosphere. I was even having a tour as the only participant and really enjoyed it. I think the tours were insightful, humorous and great and I will definitely recommend this to friend and family.
02 Jul 2014 My girlfriend and I took a half day on friday and did the Local Beer tour & it was great. We were the only two on the tour (+ a videographer)and we had a blast. The tour guide was very personable and knew tons of neat little facts/stories about the city/pubs & beer. I would definatly recomend to all! Cheers Alex
27 Jun 2014 Dan was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. Overall, it was lots of fun and a good way to get to know a part of the city as the local see it.
09 Jun 2014 I had a great time walking around Kensington markets and Chinatown on this tour. On the day I went, I was the only person booked to do the tour, but the tour guide didn't mind and he happily showed me around, chatting away to me in an informative manner for the two hours.
30 May 2014 Fantastic tour. Jason was awesome. The Healthy Butcher's bacon was the best I have had.
22 May 2014 I was the only one booked on this midweek tour. All credit to Urban Adventures and your guide that it wasn't cancelled due to lack of numbers. Great tour and guide. Really made my trip to Toronto memorable.
22 May 2014 Fantastic tour. Great beer. James was an awesome guide.
30 Jan 2014 Jason was an awesome tour guide, very informative, fun, and considerate. Very interesting and eclectic sort of tour, everything from the Stanley Cup to cholera and Bansky, PLUS beer to go along. Will definitely be checking out more Urban Adventure Tours in the future. Thank you for the tour!!
28 Nov 2013 This was an excellent tour! My husband and I have lived in Toronto our whole lives but still managed to learn an awful lot from our guide. The pork sampled at all the restaurants was excellent and was a great reflection of our local cuisine. I also appreciated the focus on sustainability and food practices held to the highest standard.
24 Aug 2013 James was amazing. I can't wait to take our next tour the next time we visit Toronto.
