Itinerary

Meet your guide in the heart of Toronto’s Distillery District. As you walk through the cobblestone streets, listen to anecdotes about the area’s history and transformation often missing in guidebooks.

Break up the tour with a chocolate tasting at Soma Chocolate and local beer at the iconic Mill St. Brewery—recommendations are provided at each of these highly-rated establishments.

Your guide points out examples of the area’s Victorian Industrial style of architecture and other important landmarks, many of which are unmarked and easy to miss.

Part ways with your guide with a new perspective on the neighborhood and enough time left in the day to explore further on your own.
