Thoroughly loved this opportunity to attend an ice festival in Toronto. Jane made it feel like I was really there instead of thousands of kilometres away. We also had the chance to see back streets and enjoy being among a small crowd of people. Thank you!

I really liked this tour of the ice sculptures in Toronto. Jane walked a lot to show us the sculptures. And she also gave some background information of the areas we walked through. Very enjoyable tour.

Thank you to Jane for setting up this tour of the icefest...unfortunately the sun had got to some of the exhibits before we did!

Tour was interesting but difficult to get some shots of the ice models due to folk in front - a bit more time spent would have been handy though understand the time factor involved.
