"Ride the Trolleys" into Toronto's Rich Diversity
Join the travelling public on Toronto's heritage trolley (streetcar) system! Disembark as we please to visit on foot various districts such as the Waterfront, Chinatown, University of Toronto, Provincial Legislature, Financial Core, Eaton Shopping Centre, City Hall, Union Station --- or other possible venues of your choice. Stroll the streets, interact with Torontonians, take photographs, ask questions --- and then reboard the tram and move onto the next site. Your experience will be characterized as personal, unique, interactive and memorable --- the farthest thing from drive-by "conveyor belt" tourism using large coaches at a fee of $40 per person.
OR ALTERNATELY, spend the time riding a much larger part of the Toronto Transit Commission system --- a mix of trams, buses and subway-metro. Explore items of interest to transit enthusiasts such as special running ways, terminals and garages, inter-modal interfaces, areas of peak vehicular movements and more.
Remember, lots of photo ops!

Toronto does not offer the same highlights as other cities we've visited, but Barry managed well to give us an impression what the city has to offer. The tour is well balanced between walking, subway and tram. St Laurence Market was a real charm.
