You’ve got four days in Toronto, during which you’ll uncover some of the city’s most wonderful allures. The things that make this place such a stand-out destination. From sky-high views to ground-level cycling tour, culinary delights to luxury shopping experiences; get ready – Toronto is about to give you a city-break to remember.
Having landed in Toronto and dropped off your bags at your luxury hotel (for more information on our luxury properties in Toronto, please click here) we’ll have you chauffeured straight across to the iconic CN Tower for an experience that’ll reinvigorate you after your flight. 356 meters above the city, you’ll step out of the confines of the Tower and onto a metal ledge to walk hands-free around the perimeter of the building. Tethered to a rail above your head, you’ll be able to lean out over the city and spot the tiny movements of life below. Adrenaline will no doubt kick in at this point, and by the time you step back inside the tower for a gourmet lunch at the 360 restaurant, you’ll be raring to go out and discover the rest of the city’s allures.
Freshen up back at your hotel for a few hours before you get picked up by your driver for a quick transfer across to Queens Quay West. Here you’ll begin your adventure to the Toronto Islands for a sunset picnic. Paddle gently across the waterways and you’ll quickly forget just how close you are to the heart of the city. With your professional Canoe guide to lead you, you’ll float through bird sanctuary and past stunning yachts and sail boats, before jumping out for a gourmet picnic overlooking the sunset-kissed waters. As night falls, it’s back into your boat to begin your journey back to shore whilst taking in the beauty of the Toronto skyline by night.Read more
The next day, enjoy a leisurely morning at your hotel, or take a stroll around the neighbourhood and enjoy a hearty breakfast at one of our favoured spots. When you’re ready, we’ll have you delivered into the safe hands of your private cycle tour guide. The perfect way to acquaint yourself with the city on the ground, this tour will see you exploring iconic sites such as Union Station, Chinatown, Kensington Market, Dundas Square and St Lawrence Market, to name just a few. A fully immersive tour that’ll teach you all you need to know about Toronto, and you’ll be able to note down any places you want to explore a little more in-depth later on.
With the rest of the afternoon free, we’d recommend taking in some cultural sights at the Art Gallery of Toronto, whose external architecture is enough to wow. Afterwards, head back to the hotel for a luxury spa treatment, a much-needed indulgence after an evening of paddling and an afternoon of cycling…
Today is all about Toronto’s foodie scene, and there’s no better place to get a real taste of the city than St Lawrence Market. With your private guide to lead you, begin your education of Toronto’s flavourful offerings with tastings and stories from the very best of the 120 vendors that sell here. By the time you finish, you’ll be feeling satisfied and clued up on the city’s gastronomical global prominence.
That evening, the best flavours will just keep coming your way, as we’ll have you booked into one of our favourite restaurants. From Mediterranean-inspired dishes at Brassaii to authentic Canadian fare at Boralia, we’ll work with you to ensure you end up dining somewhere you’ll love.
After you’ve finished dining, it’s time to dive head first into Toronto’s thriving night-life scene. You’ve got an incredible amount of places to choose from, ranging from chic rooftop bars to hidden jazz clubs, and with our recommendations list we sent to you before your trip to hand, you’ll know exactly where to go to find what you fancy. The Drake Hotel’s SkyYard is a particular favourite of ours, and offers stunning views above the city and al fresco cocktails late into the evening.
It’s your final day in Toronto, and we all know what final days are for – shopping. You’ll be dropped off mid-morning at Holt Renfrew, Canada’s luxury shopping hub, to meet your personal shopper, who will streamline the whole experience and ensure you go home with exactly the right mementos. Browse your favourite luxury brands and allow your shopper to guide you to the pieces that suit you and your family. Don’t worry, we’ve got the extra flight baggage sorted already …
