The tour was very informative and fun. Our tour guide David made the tour very explanatory and interactive and also made sure we were not bored at all. The way he explained the history of the district in a flow without any hesitation was quite impressive. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour.
The company was also very nice, I couldn’t make it on my first reservation and was provided with a refund which I think was really nice of the company. And I was welcomed to my second reservation well!

Visited Distillery many times but the tour provided so many insights. Our work team visited in the summer as we looked for an outdoor activity during covid. Best decision. Nicole C was so knowledgeable, professional and a great storyteller. Great value for the price.

We loved our corporate event. Booked a cocktail making class, followed by a walking tour of Distillery and Christmas Market.
So many laughs, facts, and anecdotes well beyond the district itself. Was a history lesson/trivia/stand-up-comedy activity all rolled into one!
What really stood out though was the attention of the Go Tours staff who kept our own team together, engaged, and on their toes. There were no stragglers or team-members sneaking off to a bar at this event!

COVID - they did a great job of planning outdoor activities, limiting the indoor one to smaller sub-groups, etc.

Just took this tour today and it was absolutely lovely! Our tour guide Erik Bell was not only friendly and witty but EXTREMELY knowledgeable of Toronto's history. Pointing out things in the bricks and walls around the distillery, telling in depth story's of the artwork. Even hooking us up with some sweets and the history of them at the end!!!

Bonus for you if you go around this time because you get a bit of Xmas history too.

Really enjoyed the walking tour with Nicole who was very knowledgeable, humorous, and delightful. The time was just the right amount with interesting exhibits throughout the different buildings. Really glad we took the tour so we could appreciate the Distillery's history. Otherwise we would have just walked around shopping and eating without knowing what an important role the Distillery had in Canada and the world!! Highly recommend the tour to better appreciate the Distillery experience.

We took a number of walking tours during our short stay in Toronto and this was, by far, the most interesting. Our guide Nicole was informative and provided a vivid picture of the historical background and relevance of this district to the growth of Toronto.
Highly Recommended
