Tours, tips and tastes – what more do you want from a vacation? The lovely city of Toronto eagerly awaits your presence. Being the capital of the Ontario province, Toronto is a major city adjacent to Lake Ontario’s Northwestern shore. Whilst there is much to do, a tour of the locality, and some brief history isn’t the worst way to kick things off.

Toronto is synonymous with its many soaring skyscraper buildings. It was the home of indigenous inhabitants for 10,000 years, and was made the Capital of Upper Canada (as it was known at the time) in 1793, after the area was surrendered to the British Crown by the Mississauga ethnic group. As of 2016, its population of 2,731,571 makes it the largest City in Canada and the fourth-largest city in North America. It is a highly cosmopolitan city, with over half of its residents being migrants -comprising 200 distinct ethnic groups and 160 languages, although English is the main language spoken.

Tours available are wide ranging, such as Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, the Royal Ontario Museum, and Niagra falls, to name some of many. Other notable attractions include Scarborough bluffs and the Prince Edward Viaduct.

Pizzeria Liberato (Neapolitan cuisine) the Scaramouche (French cuisine) and Eggspectation (American-style) are three of several restaurants which can tantalize your taste buds no end. If your food ambitions surpass these, you may wish to time your trip for the two annual Canadian festivals, Winterlicious (spans the first two weeks of February), and summerlicious (start of July); both of which offer a very wide selection of foods and beverages to sample.

Travel insurance is useful for a tranquil trip; there’s no compulsion, but perhaps you may find it a worthwhile, stress-saving tip.
