Simply put, we’re the best! We offer Toronto’s most comprehensive tours at the lowest price around. Whether you’re here for a couple of hours or for a few days, we have the perfect tour for you.
The Toronto Bus & Boat Tour has been carefully engineered to maximize passenger and staff safety in these uncertain times. By bundling our bus tour and boat tour together into a pre-scheduled, continuous experience in which passengers board and disembark in a controlled fashion, social distancing during the trip can be maximized and more easily managed. All double-deckers will be completely open-air from front to back. The boat has the city’s only completely unobstructed upper deck, and outdoor seating and roaming space spread over three decks. Not only will this make for great photo opportunities, but the fresh air and sunlight will keep everyone feeling healthy. Seating capacities on buses and boats will be reduced and all staff and passengers will be required to wear face coverings throughout the trip. In addition to our nightly deep cleans, buses and boats will be disinfected during the day between tours.
The tour starts at Yonge-Dundas Square with a fun ride on an open-top double-decker bus. A live guide on the bus provides informative and entertaining commentary about all the interesting sights and attractions seen along the way. This portion of the tour takes about 45 minutes and ends up at Harbourfront Centre where one of our friendly agents escorts you to the boat. Once on the boat, you will enjoy a leisurely cruise through the Toronto Harbour and into the Toronto Islands. This fully guided cruise with a bar and washrooms is about 45 minutes long and you’ll have countless panoramic photo opportunities of our amazing skyline. After the boat, your open-top double-decker bus and friendly guide show you more of the city for 45 minutes or so, and the experience ends where it started at Yonge-Dundas Square.
We run rain or shine. If it rains during the tour, we will gladly provide you with an official City Sightseeing Toronto rain poncho at no charge.
No. Although some of the city’s top attractions (Eaton Centre, St. Lawrence Market, Distillery, Chinatown etc.) are free to visit, others require that you buy a ticket to get in (CN Tower, Casa Loma, ROM, AGO etc.). You may, however, purchase discounted tickets to many important attractions from the staff on our buses!
Please being your mask or face covering. If you don’t have one, we can make one available to you but wearing one on the tour is currently mandatory. If you have your own hand sanitizer that you would like to use, please being it as well although hand sanitizer stations will be set up on all of our buses and boats. Be sure to bring your camera if you have one. If you’re joining us on a hot and sunny day, consider bringing a hat and a bottle of water. And, of course, don’t forget your sense of adventure!
Yes. It is absolutely free!
You may start with either the bus or the boat; it’s entirely up to you! You could begin with the boat tour and pick up the bus after the cruise, or you could ride the bus tour and be dropped off at the boat when it’s finished. And remember that even if you started with the bus and got dropped off at the boat, your experience doesn’t have to end there; you can catch the bus again and keep hopping on and off!
One thing to keep in mind, though, is that the first bus of the day always departs earlier than the first boat of the day. So, if you’re looking to get an early start on your day with us, you might want to begin with the bus tour.
The entire tour, including both the open-top double-decker city tour and the harbour and islands cruise, will last about 2 hours and 45 minutes from start to finish.
Yes. In fact this is how many of our customers decide to enjoy their tour experience; they join the tour at one of our stops, do a single fun-filled loop through the city, and finish at a point that is convenient for them.
Our buses run approximately every 15 minutes during the peak summer months and somewhat less frequently during the slower season. Please feel free to contact us as your travel date nears for the most accurate scheduling information as local events and traffic may affect our operations.
Although we have introduced a few photo and rest pauses at ideal points along our route, our aim is to interrupt the flow of our tour as little as possible. With this in mind, we try to wait at regular stops just long enough to safely exchange any passengers before continuing on.
Yes. Each and every bus has either a live guide or automatic audio systems available on board.
