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.

What people are saying about CN Tower

★★★★★ Excellent day in Toronto with exceptional guide - Dayna.

We were five from 65+ to 15 years old and Dayna was smiling and ready to assist with anything. She was polite, knowledgeable and professional. I learned things about TO I never knew. Thanks Dayna for a great day. I would recommend your service, Dayna and even do it again myself. Thanks. Barbara

Toronto: 5-Hour Ultimate Tour reviewed by Barbara

★★★★★ fantastic tour guide, young Toronto university student.

tour was a perfect way to get “the lay of the land”. Price was great and included a harbor cruise. i would suggest getting this as soon as you arrive or before to get the most out of this. I started at Dunge-younge square ( modeled after Times Square). Great way to get to Casa Loma. Start early in the day for best benefit!

★★★★★ Great tour, but not really a hop-on, hop-off.

The tour guides were terrific, and we enjoyed both days we spent on the bus. However, if you're used to using hop-on, hop-off to get you to attractions, this is not the tour for you. Toronto is too large, the attractions too far apart, and you have to wait too long to get the bus. Some of the stops aren't clearly marked, and because of construction, the tour sometimes deviated from the route. Having two days to use it helps, but you can probably only see two sites a day at most using this hop-on, hop-off.
