Tour dealt not only with history of the Distillery District but touched on the history of Toronto and early Canada USA relationships. It had to do this in order to put the Distillery District into perspective importance. Our tour guide (Erik) was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. He did have a few biases which were perhaps not part of the Distillery District history, but allowed for some additional communication connection with the guide.

Delightfully fun, informative and delicious! Gavin was knowledgeable and entertaining, making this a super fun short jaunt around the distillery district that was worth every cent. Added bonus that Soma chocolate has so many interesting options of sweet treats that if beer isn’t your thing you’re still going to enjoy some samples.

So pleased we booked this tour, led by well informed knowledgable guide who brought to life the history of this area, and who was keen to answer any questions we had. Despite the temperature being exceptionally low that day! One of the most historic areas of Toronto we visited.

Gavin was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and knew the history of the Distillery. He kept everything lively. I would recommend this tour to anyone. My niece was visiting from overseas for a short time and she enjoyed that full hour of the tour. Thank you Go Tours and Viator for this great tour and time that I got to spend with my niece. All the best.
