Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

Which tour should I choose?

All of them! No seriously, they are all quite different. We do recommend to do at least 2 of our tours – you will receive a discount if you book both together.  Here’s a quick breakdown:

Toronto Bike Tour – The Essentials – best for first-time visitors, or those that want to visit the core of the city.  It’s not all Downtown streets though, this tour also visits a residential neighbourhood, a big ethnic food market, and the beautiful University of Toronto campus. Includes a beer or coffee!

Toronto Bike Tour – Hoods & Hidden Gems-  best for those that want to dive a little deeper into the lifestyle and pulse of the city. This is the tour that will even impress locals as it visits both major sites (such as Ontario Place), but also some tucked-away spots like a cycle cafe and Dufferin Grove Park. Includes a beer in the park!

Toronto Islands Sunset Tour – our new tour for 2019 is very unique experience. A feel-like-you’re-out-of-the-city nature experience including a charter ferry ride, you will be blown away by the beauty of the 15 small islands and the stunning views of Lake Ontario and Downtown Toronto. When’s the last time you had a campfire on a beach? We’ll do just that, weather permitting.

 

Is the bike tour easy for everyone?

Yes! Ours tours run at a relaxed pace, and include plenty of breaks and informational stops along the way. Toronto is a truly bike friendly city. The tours stick mostly to bike lanes, although we occasionally run along quieter city streets. Also, riding in a group is helpful and we always provide tips for smart and safe riding at the beginning of each tour. If you’ve ridden a bike before, you’ll be more than fine!

What should I bring with me?

  • Please bring your own water bottle – you can refill on route
  • There will be plenty of photo opportunities, so do not forget your camera
  • A bit of cash always comes in handy in case you want to buy a snack along the way, even though most of the places accept credit card as well
  • For the Toronto Islands Sunset tour bring a swimsuit & towel in case you want to have a swim in the lake – it’s wonderful!

What happens in case of rain?

All of our tours can run rain or shine. We even offer rain capes on bike tours to keep you dry! Only in extreme weather conditions shall a tour be cancelled.  This decision is always taken at the meeting point of the tour and never before the departing time.  In the rare event a tour is cancelled we will attempt to place you on another departure, or offer you a full refund.

Do I need to book in advance?

Yes, booking in advance is required. Our tours typically sell out quickly. To maximize your chances of getting the date, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance.

"The Toronto Islands tour with Fitz was my most memorable experience of my trip to Canada - I still can't believe how close that beautiful park is to Downtown Toronto. The ride was easy and the campfire on the beach was the perfect way to end the day!"
