About the tour

Toronto is known as a "city of neighbourhoods, and Yorkville's fascinating history, heritage landmarks, chic boutiques and charming Victorian houses provide the backdrop for a delightful stroll. Experience Yorkville's evolution from a quaint Victorian village on the outskirts of Toronto, to the centre of a dynamic music scene and upscale shopping destination. New construction and the conversion of heritage properties continue to transform the character of what was once the Canadian "Haight-Ashbury."

Very enjoyable, loved the buildings and the sunshine (it’s been a very dull day in Cornwall, England).
