The Basics

With a history dating back to 1827, the University of Toronto—replete with sculptures, stone buildings, and lush green spaces—is a central feature of the bustling city. Most travelers happen upon the university while hanging out downtown, while some stop by on a hop-on hop-off bus tour or a small-group walking tour. If you’re in the mood for something spooky, a ghost-themed tour of the campus is a fun option.

Luxury Small-Group Toronto City Tour
Both our driver and guide were informative and flexible in every way. Casa Loma should have been first to avoid a 25 minute wait for taped guide. The device was really unnecessary. The film at Casa Loma was excellent. I would have used the lost time for a quick stop at Yorkville.

Luxury Small-Group Toronto City Tour
We took our tour on July 10, 2109. Both our driver and tour guide were very courteous, helpful and informative. We were shown many of the sites in Toronto that we had hoped to see and the tour was given at a very nice pace. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wishing to visit Toronto.

Toronto Bike Tour: The Essentials
Victoria was an excellent tour guide .... very calm and low-key but still informative and interesting. She never asked any of my family of 5 to speed up or cut short their time at the various points of interest (even allowed an unscheduled coffee stop for our caffeine-dependent family). As a result we overshot the 3-hour tour time by about 20 minutes but none of us complained. The bicycles are in good condition, very comfortable and well equipped with hook-on baskets for water, sweaters etc. We have done bicycle tours in a few cities around the world and this was as good as any of them. I would highly recommend this tour for visitors to Toronto.

How to Get There

The most convenient way to get to the University of Toronto’s downtown (St. George) campus is by subway. Take the 1 line to the Museum stop, then walk along the west side of Queen’s Park, which borders the university. Alternatively, many hop-on hop-off bus tours stop at the Royal Ontario Museum, adjacent to campus.

When to Get There

Most travelers prefer to visit when the weather is pleasant, in late spring, summer, and early fall; Toronto winters are typically cold and quite snowy. The campus is busiest when students return to class in fall, and you’ll find fewer crowds in summer.

Visiting the Royal Ontario Museum

Just north of the University of Toronto’s St. George campus sits the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), one of Ontario’s premier art and culture institutions. Explore the ROM’s collection of more than 13 million objects showcased on four floors of gallery space. To save time at the entrance, prebook your ticket. Or, go on the third Monday of the month, when the museum offers free admission and late hours.
