We hired a guide for a 3 1/2 hour tour though Tours By Local, and it was worth every cent. The fee was 160 Canadian which included admission and tax. The collections are extensive and the architecture impressive. Having a knowledgable guide enhanced the experience...More

I loved but ROM and AGO, but this place is more organized and beautiful. We were very happy to have a impressionist/expressionist exposition while we were here, so it was worthy the visit itself. And I must say, the modern art installations were really cool.

The AGO is so much more than just a gallery, they offer up great events, like Friday night party's right in the building with excellent entertainment. As a gallery it's nothing special, but they get some of the best travelling exhibitions and always have something...More

A picture can say a thousand words - that's for sure! There are incredible artists that have offered and contributed pieces to this stunning gallery. There is so much artwork with so much character expertise. Children might not enjoy this place as much as adults.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
