Toronto Eaton Centre

This downtown shopping mecca offers more than 175 stores and is open until 8:00PM, letting you fit your retail therapy around a day of tourism. Check out the basement food court.

Art Gallery of Ontario

Admission to this impressive attraction is free for under-5s, or on Wednesday late-nights (until 8:30PM). The Hands-On Centre for kids is a great way to get them into art young.

Ontario Science Centre

This brilliant 'museum' is so cool, you'll forget you're learning about science. Open seven days a week, visit on a weekday to spend more time with the exhibits.

Casa Loma

North America isn't known for castles, but this former home, built in 1911, is a good effort. Perhaps best enjoyed as a venue for music and culture, check web listings.

Vaughan Mills

Ready for more shopping? This is one of the biggest malls in Canada, and a fashion haven. The Lego shop is a hit with kids, where pester power will help you spend!

CN Tower

The pride of Toronto's skyline - try to see it at night, from the Hanlan's Point Ferry. The 360 Restaurant at the top is, although pricey, worth it for the incredible views.

Canada's Wonderland

Have a screaming good time here, riding the roller coasters, enjoying the waterpark and experiencing the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit. Book in advance for cheaper tickets.

Toronto Zoo

The highlight of this zoo and conservation site is the pair of beautiful giant pandas who arrived in 2013. The mischievous meerkats and penguins also never fail to raise a smile.

Rogers Centre

Home of the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team, this is also the place to see the biggest-name musical acts coming through Toronto, including One Direction and Taylor Swift in 2015.

Royal Ontario Museum

Visit this natural history museum for state of the art exhibits that bring historical events to life. The beautiful modern building is a sightseeing hotspot in itself.

Planning Your Toronto Visit

When to visit Toronto?

For the best weather, visit Toronto during summer, as the winter can be relentless. However, many people choose to plan their trip around a particular festival, as Toronto is in no short supply. Toronto International Film Festival is a huge draw, and takes place annually in August. Toronto Gay Pride spans an entire week at the end of each year - the city takes its LGBT rights seriously. Local sporting calendars and seasons are also worth consideration.

Where to stay?

Toronto has a great selection of hotels for visitors, business travelers, families and couples. Hostels are also plentiful, and a great choice for backpackers and people on a budget.

  • Best time to visit
    The summer months are the best. The temperatures are warm, outdoor markets abound, and there's an endless supply of events. But that also means there are lots of crowds, and prices on accommodations and flights are much higher. If you can, try to visit at the beginning or end of the season.

A great way to spend the dY and hear about our colourful history!

Michelle was a great guide and fun to be with. It was a lot of fun. I recommend going on the earliest ride u can because the district gets busy and you don’t want to navigate too many crowds. I give my day a 10/10.

Great information about Toronto--we live here and didn't know!

The voice of the tour guide was very harsh and far too loud because she had to shout. Definitely like nails on a chalkboard. Find a way to amp the sound so shouting is not necessary.

Very nice and smooth tour with a friendly guide

It was a very nice tour. Our guide Bernad was very friendly and provided a lot of additional information about Toronto, the Niagara falls, and Niagara on the lake. It is possible that you can book a helicopter flight at the beginning of the tour (not included in the price. However, I can recommend it, since this is a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity). Since all people of our tour were not really interested in a long stop at Niagara on the lake, Bernad offered to drive directly to the falls, so that we can spend a lot more time there. All in all it was a very nice experience and I recommend that one day trip to the falls.
