The Best Things to do in Toronto During TIFF

Each year, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) attracts hundreds of thousands of celebrities, film buffs, and tourists. If you are a first time visitor to Toronto and you find yourself unsure of what to do between movie screenings, look no further!


Navigate Toronto like a Pro

Hop on our Double Decker Tour Bus for easy navigation to the TIFF festival hub and other must-see destinations across Toronto (including those listed below). Our 48-hour tour pass stops at Yonge and Dundas Square, the Distillery District, Scotiabank Theatre, the CN Tower, Yorkville, and more. You’ll also receive a FREE Toronto harbour and islands cruise and unlimited travel advice from our friendly guides!

Go Celebrity Spotting

Celebrity spotting during TIFF is a total no-brainer. The downside is that the main festival hub along King Street West often becomes crowded with eager fans and paparazzi. We recommend traveling north to Yorkville, home to some of the most luxurious hotels, shops, and restaurants in the city. Be on the lookout for celebrities at Sassafraz, Holt Renfrew, The Hazelton, ONE, and D Bar at the Four Seasons Hotel.


Explore “Hollywood North” 

Did you know? Toronto is the 3rd largest screen-based production center in North America behind Los Angeles and New York. Countless movies and TV shows have been shot in the city, including American Psycho, the Handmaid’s Tale, Kickass, Black Mirror, Good Will Hunting, Chicago, Mean Girls, Suicide Squad, and many more! Hop on a tour bus and try to spot some of the city’s famous filming locations (Yonge Street, Casa Loma, the Distillery District, and the University of Toronto Campus have all been heavily featured on the silver screen).


Take a Breather at Harbourfront Centre

If you are attending TIFF with kids, Harbourfront Centre is the perfect place to take a break from the festival madness and check out some of the city’s best family-friendly attractions. Find a bite to eat, walk alongside Lake Ontario, and drop by the Power Plant art gallery. Ripley’s Aquarium, Rec Room, and the CN Tower are also a short walk away, making this area perfect for those traveling on foot.


Grab Food off the Beaten Path 

There are tons of fabulous restaurants around the festival’s main drag: Pai, Campechano, Forno Cultura, Bar Buca, and Libretto are all local favourites. If you want to get away from the crowds or are looking for a budget-friendly option, travel to Kensington Market, the Annex, or Chinatown, where you’ll find every cuisine under the sun at a cheaper price tag. We recommend checking out Otto’s Berlin Doner, Seven Lives, Rasa, or Rol San.


Experience other Festivals 

Just because you are visiting Toronto for TIFF doesn’t mean you can’t explore other happenings across the city! If you have some downtime to immerse yourself in Toronto’s cultural and food scene, drop by the Veg Food Fest (September 6 to 8), Matty Fest (September 7), Toronto Fashion Week (September 3 to 5), Cabbagetown Festival (September 8 & 9), and the Kensington Market Jazz Festival (September 13 to 15 at Kensington Market).


Each of these locations can be easily accessed via the City Sightseeing Toronto double-decker bus tour. Visit the details page on our website for more information on tour stops.

Touring Toronto’s Best Public Art

Over the years, Toronto’s collection of public art has become a defining factor of the city and its urban landscape. Large-scale cultural institutions have commissioned international sculptors to build gigantic works, while local artists have covered Toronto’s streets with colourful murals. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite public art pieces across Toronto, so hit the streets and enjoy this affordable, unique way to tour the city!


Various installations, The Distillery District

This highly-photographed historic neighbourhood is home to a handful of eye-catching public art pieces. Michael Christian’s 40-foot, alien-like I.T stirred up a controversy when it was originally unveiled in 2009. Dennis Oppenheim’s Still Dancing stands tall in the center of the Distillery District’s Mill Square seating area. Installed in 2014, the Love Lock installation is Toronto’s answer to Paris’ Ponts des Arts bridge.


Various Murals, Kensington Market

Possibly the most colourful neighborhood in Toronto, Kensington Market boasts some of the oldest murals in the city. Pick up a bite to eat from one of Kensington’s delicious restaurants and go mural-hunting through the market and its side streets. If you’re a Toronto local, new street art is always popping up so you’re bound to run into something you’ve never seen!


Beaver Dam, Canoe Landing Park 

Located on Toronto’s harbourfront just east of Spadina, Canoe Landing Park was designed in collaboration with Canadian artist Douglas Coupland. The park features numerous installations and sculptures, including Coupland’s colourful Beaver Dam. Visitors should stroll through the Harbourfront Centre and the Toronto waterfront before making their way to Canoe Landing Park. Don’t forget to check out the neighbouring Fort York Historic Site to explore a piece of Toronto history!


Double Vision at X Condominiums 

Shayne Dark’s Double Vision has greeted residents and visitors outside of X the Condominium since it was unveiled in 2010. Made up of 25 bright-red steel poles, this soaring sculpture can be found at 110 Charles Street, just south of Yonge and Bloor. One of the best parts about public art is that you can (usually!) interact with it; many onlookers have enjoyed crawling through Double Vision and finding the best angle for that perfect photo!


Two Forms, Grange Park 

In 2017, Toronto’s Grange Park went through a massive $11 million dollar revitalization project and has become one of the most-adored green spaces within the city. Without a doubt, one of the highlights of the park is British Artist Henry Moore’s Two Forms sculpture. After sitting outside of the Art Gallery of Ontario for nearly 50 years, the sculpture was relocated to its new home inside the park.


Rose Wall, Mist Gardens

The Rose Wall in Toronto’s Yorkville neighborhood is truly a best-kept secret! Tucked away inside the Four Seasons hotel’s Mist Garden, the sprawling carved wall was designed by Canadian artist Linda Covit. The park itself is the perfect place to sit with a book or cool off in the heat of the summer. Every few minutes, a thick mist is released from the grates!


Each of these locations can be easily accessed via the City Sightseeing Toronto double-decker bus tour. Visit the details page on our website for more information on tour stops.

How to See Toronto in 48 hours with a Family- Summer 2019

Planning a weekend getaway to Toronto with the kids? You’re in luck, because this city is home to countless family-friendly attractions, restaurants, and cultural offerings. Thankfully, you don’t need a full week to see Toronto in all of its glory. With our helpful guide, you can get a good dose of family fun in just 48 hours!


Weather in Toronto can be unpredictable, so we’ve provided plenty of options for both indoor, rainy day activities and things to do in the heat of the summer sunshine. Without further ado, let’s get to sightseeing!


Day 1: 


Start your day at Yonge and Dundas Square to get a peek at the iconic “Times Square of Toronto” before it gets too busy with weekend crowds. For breakfast, head south to the historic St. Lawrence Market. With over 120 different vendors, the market will be sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.


Next, check out the newly revitalized Toronto waterfront (also known as the Harbourfront Centre) to walk alongside Lake Ontario, grab an ice cream cone, visit The Power Plant art gallery, or rent a paddleboat. Kids love climbing the wave decks, exploring the music garden, and playing on the sandy beaches.


From here, you’ll be in convenient proximity to the CN Tower if you want to stroll over and marvel at its height (1,815 feet!). If the weather is unfavourable, Ripley’s Aquarium (Canada’s largest indoor aquarium) is right next door and is home to over 15,000 sea creatures, including the beloved jellyfish exhibition. Across the street, you’ll find Rec Room, a 40,000 square-foot arcade and entertainment space adored by kids both big and small.


When the sun is shining, hop on a cruise boat and set sail to Centre Island for the best possible view of the Toronto skyline. On the island, treat the kids to a couple of rides at the Centreville amusement park, bring your own picnic for dinner, hike the trails, or rent a bicycle. Journey back to the mainland in the evening for that picture-perfect sunset view.


If the kids’ bedtime isn’t too early, head over to Toronto’s Entertainment District to catch a play at the Princess of Wales Theatre or a movie at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. In July and August, the Toronto Outdoor Picture Show also screens free movies in public parks throughout the city.


Day 2: 


Rise and shine- Torontonians take brunch seriously! Depending on where your family is staying, there are plenty of great options for weekend brunch in Downtown Toronto. The Annex, Kensington Market, Queen Street West, and Old Toronto are all strong contenders. If you make your way up to the Annex, be sure to hit up Casa Loma, a sprawling 70,000 square-foot castle turned museum and historical landmark. Kids ages 11+ can even take part in one of Casa Loma’s escape room experiences!


Kensington Market is always lively in the summer months, and on Pedestrian Sundays, crowds flood its colourful streets for food, music, and shopping from local vendors. Kensington is a top pick for foodies visiting Toronto, and offers dozens of cuisines and treats to please the younger ones. Bring take-out dishes to the Bellevue Square Park, which is complete with outdoor seating and a play structure.


If it starts to rain, explore one of Toronto’s world-class museums and art galleries. The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is perfect for kids, its interactive and educational exhibitions are always crowd-pleasers. If you are passing through Chinatown, the Art Gallery of Ontario is definitely worth checking out. Always free for children under 13, the AGO regularly holds kid’s programming, creative workshops, and tours for families.


Don’t leave the AGO without stopping by Grange Park, the gallery’s neighbouring greenspace that just received a $12.5 million dollar revitalization. Complete with public art installations, a playground, and a splash pad, Grange Park is the perfect place to take a breather after doing some serious city exploring.


In the evening, Nathan Phillips Square is the place to find concerts, markets, festivals, and other summer events. Don’t forget to take a family selfie in front of the rainbow TORONTO sign- it’s the perfect backdrop to commemorate a weekend of fun in Toronto!


Each of these locations correlates with a City Sightseeing Double Decker tour stop in Toronto. Browse the list of our stops to find out how you can easily navigate through the city during your stay!

The Best Neighbourhoods for Foodies in Toronto

Toronto is a foodie’s dream. Being such a diverse city, visitors will marvel at the vast array of dishes from around the world. There’s a lot to choose from- so we’ve outlined some of the best neighbourhoods for food lovers and tourists along the City Sightseeing Toronto tour route. We hope you are hungry!

Old Toronto/St.Lawrence Market (Stop 19)

The St. Lawrence Market is a no-brainer for those looking to grab a delicious bite to eat. Located in the heart of Old Toronto, the market’s rich history has played a major role in defining the city’s culinary scene. You will find a mix of Canadian favourites and international flavours, so show up with an empty stomach and curiosity!

Montreal-style bagels at St. Urbain are served hot out of the oven and a great option for those looking for a quick bite on a budget. Carousel Bakery has perfected their famous peameal sandwich – a classic, simple Canadian dish made up of smoky peameal bacon and the bakery’s signature honey mustard sauce. Fish and chips can be found at Buster’s Sea Cove, a popular lunch spot for those working in the nearby Financial District. Remember not to skip out on dessert, the best Portuguese tarts in the city are baked fresh daily at Churasco’s. 

Kensington (Stop 11)

Kensington Market is home to a very diverse range of cuisines to accommodate every craving, culinary preference, and budget. Over the years, Caribbean, Chinese, Latin American, and Vietnamese immigrants have settled in the market, each making their unique culinary mark on the neighbourhood. In the summer, tourists hit up Pedestrian Sunday, a monthly street festival with plenty of food offerings sold from outdoor vendors.


Poke has emerged as one of the biggest food trends in Toronto, and the freshest fish in town can be found at North Poke, a tiny, standing-room-only spot in the heart of the market. Right next door, locals flock to Torteria San Cosme for meaty Mexican street style sandwiches and elote. If you can’t get enough Mexican food, tacos are also a popular choice in Kensington Market, and Seven Lives prepares them to perfection. Amongst an abundance of casual eateries, Grey Gardens is a formal, sit-down spot for those looking for a long wine list and cozy ambiance. Don’t forget to head over to Bunner’s Bake Shop for gluten-free, vegan baked goods and homemade soft serve!

Baldwin Village (Stop 11)

Baldwin Village is nestled between Chinatown and Japantown, so naturally, you’ll find a handful of Asian cuisines in this neighbourhood. Omai is one of the newest additions, serving up sushi, handrolls, and lots of sake. Visiting Toronto in the winter months? Don’t miss out on Kinton Ramen, a staple for Torontonians trying to warm up in the cold. Down the street, Thai food can be found at the colourful and vibrant Koh Lipe. Those dropping by the Art Gallery of Ontario can head across the street to the Grange Mall for modern Japanese food at Manpuku. 

Koreatown (Stop 8)

Attention Tourists: make sure not to bypass Koreatown, a strip of boutiques and budget-friendly restaurants of between Christie and Bathurst on Bloor Street. Korean Village is a Koreatown classic, the staff is as friendly as the dishes are delicious. Ever wanted to try a few variations of traditional tofu stew? Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu is the place to do it. Or, if Korean-Mexican fusion sounds like your thing, hit up Barrio Coreano for unique flavours and plenty of margaritas. Tacos el Asador is a great option for Latin American eats, and Japanhako is home to the only authentic yakitori grill in Toronto. Get takeout and enjoy your meal at Christie Pits, one of the largest green spaces in the city.

Harbord Village (Stop 8)

Tourists may encounter Harbord Village while walking from Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood to Kensington Market. Surrounded by residential streets, Harbord village is easy to miss, but not a destination to skip. The street is mostly made up of restaurants, bakeries, and coffee shops, so there are plenty of enticing options for visitors.


Skippa is new on the block, and the best place to go for sushi and Japanese small plates. For upscale dining, head to Piano Piano for wood-fired pizza, charcuterie, and a much-loved mushroom cavatelli. Rasa offers international tapas in a cozy, dimly-lit setting. For quick eats or take-out,  Matha RotiHarbord Fish and ChipsHarbord Bakery, and Almond Butterfly are all adored Harbord Village residents.

The Best Places to Take Instagram Photos in Toronto this Summer

Any local Torontonian would tell you that the city completely transforms in the summer. Toronto is home to its fair share of parks, cultural hubs, and beaches, all best explored when the warmer months come around.

Whether you live in the city or are just passing through, we’ve rounded up the most insta-worthy attractions Toronto has to offer. Plus, a few pro-tips for exploring the city like a true local. Get ready to whip out your phone cameras and strike a pose next to these picture-perfect photo backdrops

1.Distillery District

In the mid-1800s, this space was home to the largest whiskey distillery in the world. Today, the distillery district is a historic hotspot for culture-savvy tourists and locals alike. Its pedestrian-only cobblestone roads are lined with art galleries, cafés, and some of the best restaurants in the city. There are a handful of art installations and sculptures throughout the distillery district, so this neighborhood was made to be photographed. Don’t forget to bring a lock to take part in the famous love lock installation!

2. Museum of Illusions
Located in Old Toronto, the Museum of Illusions is the first of its kind in the city. Think of it as part fun house, part art gallery for contemporary optical illusions. The museum is fully interactive and has several installations that are intended to be photographed. Markings on the ground even indicate where visitors should stand to get the best shots!

3. Gooderham Building

Also known as “Toronto’s flatiron building”, the Gooderham building is one of the defining architectural features of Old Toronto. Pro-tip: stand facing west on Front Street for one of the most iconic views in the city. You’ll see a mix of old and new as the Financial District’s skyscrapers tower in the background.

4. Toronto Islands

The easiest way to get that perfect shot of the Toronto skyline is to take a quick boat ride over to the Toronto Islands. Favoured by Torontonians as an escape from the city, the islands are home to an amusement park, hiking trails, as well as several yacht clubs and public beaches. Plus, you’ll get a clear shot of the CN Tower, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

5. June Callwood Park
The June Callwood Park is less of a tourist attraction and more of a best-kept-secret passersby may encounter while wandering the City Place waterfront neighbourhood. Referred to as “The Pink Park” by Torontonians, June Callwood Park is nestled between a dense urban landscape and neighbours the Fork York National Historic Site.

6. The AGO

Need a break from the summer heat? Spend an afternoon at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto’s largest and most architecturally impressive art gallery. Designed by architect Frank Gehry, the space includes a massive spiral staircase, a glass facade, and a lookout with views of downtown and neighboring China Town. If the architecture of the building isn’t enticing enough, the gallery often welomes Instagram-friendly exhibitions such as Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors. Pro tip: take a detour to the south exterior of the AGO and have a picnic in Grange Park. This newly-renovated greenspace is the perfect place to get a shot of OCAD’s famous “tabletop” building and the AGO’s spiral staircase.

7. Graffiti Alley

Toronto’s best street art is located within “Graffiti Alley”, a one kilometer stretch south of Queen Street West. It is one of the city’s most visually unique locations, often serving as a backdrop for photoshoots, films, and Rick Mercer’s weekly news report. Graffiti is completely legal in the alley, and new murals are added on the regular. Pro-tip: grab an ice cream cone or bubble tea on Queen Street and take some time to stroll through the art-lined streets.

8. The ROM

In 2007, The Royal Ontario Museum reopened its doors and unveiled a dramatic renovation. Coined as “The Crystal”, the ROM’s contemporary structure brought a sense of modernity to an otherwise historic neighborhood. Today, the ROM is home to world-class exhibitions for visitors of all ages. Pro-tip: after you have paid the ROM a visit, head around the corner to the University of Toronto’s Philosopher’s Walk. This peaceful pedestrian-only pathway runs through the university campus and is surrounded by a handful of Toronto landmarks- the Royal Conservatory of Music, Trinity College, and the University of Toronto Faculty of Law.

9. Casa Loma
You didn’t expect there to be a castle in the middle of Toronto, did you? Casa Loma is an old-time tourist favourite and a must-see for those visiting Toronto. Situated on five acres of land, the castle is surrounded by scenic grounds and gardens for visitors to explore at their leisure. Pro-tip: visit during the Halloween or Christmas holidays to see Casa Loma decked in festive furnishings and decorations.

The Bata Shoe Museum

With the cold January air upon us it can be difficult to stay warm and find something fun to do! If you are looking for something to do in Toronto that is unique and a little different then the Bata Shoe Museum provides a perfect opportunity to explore, engage and excite!

The Bata Shoe Museum is one of the most unusual museums in Toronto and has a rich history. The Museum’s origins date back to 1894 when the Bata Shoe Company was registered in Czechoslovakia. The company survived both world wars, and was able to overcome the frequent challenges posed by the global economy. Today Bata employs more than 50,000 people, has retail locations in over 70 countries, runs 27 production facilities in 20 countries, and serves 1 million customers per day.

The Museum is easily identifiable by it’s unique architecture (the building looks like a shoe box!). Inside you will be amazed to learn that this is the home to over 10,000 pairs of shoes! Some of these shoes belonged to celebrities such as Justin Beiber, Marilyn Monroe, Terry Fox, John Lennon, Madonna, and many more. Current exhibitions include The Roaring Twenties: Heels, Hemlines and High Spirits, Art in Shoes – Shoes in Art, Beauty, Identity, Pride: Native North American Footwear and All About Shoes: Footwear Through the Ages.

Get on your best sneakers and check out The Bata Shoe Museum! Their hours are Monday to Wednesday 10am-5pm, Thursday 10am-8pm, Friday and Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday 12pm-5pm. Admission is $14 per adult, $12 for seniors (65+), $8 for students with ID, $5 for children 5-17 years old. Family rates are also available.

Located at 327 Bloor Street West, the Bata Shoe Museum is easily accessible by City Sighseeing’s City Tour at Stop # 9. If using public transit, take the TTC’s Bloor-Danforth or University-Spadina subway lines to St George Station and then walk to the southwest corner of Bloor Street West and St. George Street.

Massey Hall

This wonderful concert hall was built in the 1890s by Hart Massey (Massey Ferguson agricultural equipment amongst many others) as a memorial to his son with the hope that it would focus on the development of the Arts.

It could originally hold 3500 patrons, but through renovations the capacity is now 2765. Visitors to the city will find many concerts taking place here, Gordon Lightfoot used to perform several nights a year here because of it’s lesser capacity and high demand. The Maple Leaf Gardens was probably too big to fit his style. I saw him at Massey Hall 30 years ago.

Massey Hall became one of Toronto’s first Heritage’ landmarks in the 1970s, and still sells out on a regular basis


When visiting Niagara Falls, it is easy to forget that there are other things to see than the waterfall itself. One example of this is Niagara-on-the-Lake, a small town located about 20 km north of Niagara Falls that is often overlooked by visitors, even though it offers a wonderful combination of historic sites, 19thcentury architecture, lovely parks, wonderful theatrical productions, great restaurants, and great shopping.

Despite its tiny size, Niagara-on-the-Lake has played a prominent role in Canadian history. Many of the first inhabitants of the town were loyalists to the British crown (historically referred to as United Empire Loyalists) who had fled the American Revolution. Niagara-on-the-Lake was originally known as Newark, and for a short time in the 1790s, it was the capital of the province of Upper Canada (a predecessor of the current province of Ontario). Niagara-on-the-Lake is located at the point where the Niagara River empties into Lake Ontario, and the United States is directly across the border.

When tensions between the American and British erupted into the War of 1812, Niagara-on-the-Lake’s location made it extremely vulnerable to attack. Not surprisingly, Niagara-on-the-Lake was almost completely destroyed by American forces throughout the course of the war. It was rebuilt, however, and thankfully, many of the buildings constructed during this time have survived to the present day. Niagara-on-the-Lake’s historic appeal makes it a fantastic destination for Niagara visitors today.

There are many things to see and do in Niagara-on-the-Lake. For those interested in shopping, Queen Street, the town’s main thoroughfare, offers numerous unique boutiques, selling clothing, crafts and delicious sugary treats. One of the best stores is Maple Leaf Fudge, which has operated for over 40 years making some of the best hand cut fudge anywhere. One can even watch the fudge being made in the store! For history lovers, Fort George, which was heavily involved in several War of 1812 battles, is one of the few remaining 19th century military forts in the region.

Visitors to Fort George can take in historical military demonstrations, costumed soldiers, and occasionally, historical reenactments of famous battles. For those looking for a nice place to walk, Queen’s Royal Park has a lovely esplanade where the river meets the lake. The esplanade provides a lovely view of Fort Niagara across the river in New York State, and on a clear day, one can even see the Toronto skyline across Lake Ontario! Finally, for theatre-lovers, the annual Shaw Festival, which highlights the work of Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, runs from April until November in several of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s theatres. This year’s festival includes Shaw classics such as The Millionairess and Misalliance.

Niagara-on-the-Lake is a MUST DO for anyone heading to Niagara Falls!

TIPS FOR VISITORS: The best way to see Niagara-on-the-Lake is to take CitySightseeing Niagara’s Niagara tour. The tour, which also includes a 2-3 hour stop in Niagara Falls and a visit to a winery, stops in Niagara-on-the-Lake on its way back to Toronto. The tour picks up at most downtown Toronto hotels and costs $80.00 for adults, $75.00 for seniors, $55.00 for students, and $50.00 for children. Admission to the Skylon Tower can also be included in the ticket price for a small extra charge. Driving to Niagara-on-the-Lake is also possible, but parking can be nightmarish, particularly during the summer months. Unfortunately, public transit options to Niagara-on-the-Lake are virtually nonexistent.

Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada

It isn’t every day that Toronto gains a spectacular new tourist attraction. In October 2013, however, Toronto was blessed with the opening of the brand new Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada!

The Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is home to an astounding 13,500 different species of sea creatures contained in 5.7 million litres worth of water tanks! The species featured here come from all parts of the globe, from Canada to parts far beyond. The Canadian Waters exhibit displays aquatic creatures that live in the Great White North, including Largemouth Bass, Giant Pacific Octopus, Wolf Eel, and Pacific Kelp. The Ray Bay exhibit is home to various species of stingrays, with daily shows featuring divers feeding the beautiful creatures. Many mesmerizing Pacific Sea Nettles and Moon Jellies can be found in the Planet Jelly exhibit, which contains the world’s largest tank meant specifically for jellyfish! Perhaps the biggest highlight of the Aquarium is the Dangerous Lagoon exhibit, which stars terrifying creatures such as Tiger Sharks, and Yellowtail Snappers, and has a moving walkway under the tank which allows visitors to get up close and personal with the animals!

The Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is already one of the top tourist attractions in Toronto. It is an absolute can’t miss if you’re visiting the city! To get to the Aquarium, take CitySightseeing Toronto’s hop on hop off city tour to stop # 16.
