Last summer when a friend and I visited Toronto, Canada, we were so excited to finally be on a plane to anywhere. The weather was mostly sunny with the exception of heavy rain happening one of our days. We got to see the CN Tower, a few museums and were ready to get out on a boat during a sunny day. We decided to go with Toronto Harbour Tours to check out the beautiful harbour of Toronto.
We stayed at a really accessible Chelsea Hotel which is perfectly located in the heart of downtown Toronto. It would only be a quick casual 30 minute walk from our hotel to the Toronto Harbour Tours desk but we took our time sightseeing, taking pics on the boardwalk and just exploring outside on a nice sunny day.
When we got to the ticket center for Toronto Harbour Tours, we noticed we could either buy tickets from a small booth on the boardwalk or from the actual office store just few steps away from the booth. The salesperson told us a disabled person would get a discount on a ticket and also a free companion ticket, which was great for us.
Since we went on a weekday which was a Friday, tours occur every hour and we just missed the one that went by. That meant, we had time to get a snack nearby while waiting for the next scheduled tour.
