Overview
Get to know the hidden gems of Toronto’s Distillery District on this walking and tasting tour. As you explore the neighborhood’s cobblestone streets, which once housed a massive whisky distillery, let your guide handle the navigation and see off-the-radar landmarks that many visitors miss. Refuel along the way with included chocolate and beer sampling.
Highlights
  • Distillery District walking tour: Avoid the hassle of navigating on your own
  • Guide ensures you see unmarked points of interest and architectural gems
  • Chocolate and beer tastings at Soma and Mill St. Brewery
  • Learn about the neighborhood’s past tenant, a massive whiskey distillery
What to Expect
Meet your guide in the heart of Toronto’s Distillery District. As you walk through the cobblestone streets, listen to anecdotes about the area’s history, often missing in guidebooks. Break up the tour with a chocolate tasting at Soma Chocolate and local beer at the iconic Mill St. Brewery—recommendations are provided at each of these highly-rated establishments. Your guide points out examples of the area’s Victorian Industrial style of architecture and other important landmarks, many of which are unmarked and easy to miss. Part ways with your guide with a new perspective on the neighborhood and enough time left in the day to explore further on your own.

The tour guide was good, and some interesting history. The tour was of the history of the distillery district, not the distilleries. Expect a good bit of history, a bite of chocolate and a few sips of beer from Mill Street Brewery.

Hello connsp! Our Historical Distillery District tour is exclusively about the history of the District itself as it is the largest collection of Victorian Era Architecture in all of North America and at one time, the largest distillery in the entire world! We are happy you were able to learn about the area! We do offer additional sampling options for the breweries/distilleries ,however, tours of the facilities themselves are up to the individual companies. We thank you for joining us!

Was definitely worth the time and money to share this experience with Josh on this tour that helped us to discover such a special part of Toronto. Fascinating history, well presented, and the chocolate and beers at the end are a nice touch. Although I'm sure all your guides are

Hi Eric F! Wow! Thank you for your review! Josh is one of our most experienced guides so we are happy that he provided you with such a great experience! Is this a new tagline? I will have to spread it around the office #JoshIsCoolerThanErik (although if you're lucky enough to be with Erik, he's still pretty cool ) haha! Thanks for your review!

We like to walk & wanted to get an idea of the history as well. Our guide was knowledgeable about the area and took us inside some of the buildings. We ended at a distillery to taste some of their beer. Very nice tour!
