When traveling, we do our best to visit other attractions which the locals recommend the most. We obviously visit the main tourist attractions as well, but getting local recommendations is our thing! So when we planned our trip to Canada, we found RC Transfer in Toronto which operates in the tourist segment in the province of Ontario, performing the services of receptive, transfer, city tour and advisory. Now it’s time to present you a different and interesting city tour in Toronto they designed especially for us.
City tour in Toronto
As we had already visited Dundas Square, Nathan Phillips Square (the Toronto sign), CN Tower and the Ripley’s Aquarium, they decided to show us some spots that not everybody has heard of. But first we started visiting Casa Loma, which is definitely known by those who wants to visit Toronto. I’ll write a full blog post for Casa Loma but for now, a few pics for you guys.
Very close to Casa Loma you can get to know the Baldwin Steps, a public outdoor staircase, named to honor the locally significant Baldwin family, who once owned and developed the land on which they are situated. The Steps are also famous for appearing in the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels and its film adaptation, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Scott Pilgrim contra o Mundo).
Then we headed to University of Toronto, located on the grounds that surround Queen’s Park. We felt like we were inside a movie. I can’t imagine how amazing it must be studying there. The University of Toronto has educated three Governors-General of Canada, four Prime Ministers of Canada, four foreign leaders, and fourteen Justices of the Supreme Court.
After that we made a quick stop on the Legislative Assembly of Ontario for pics 😀

Then, Euler, RC Transfer’s owner, led us to the unusual places. I mean… not the very popular attractions among the tourist. Mostly locals know the spots we’re about to show you.
Our impression about Toronto is that it’s very similar to Sao Paulo. VERY! Buildings everywhere, a great nightlife, amazing restaurants and so on. When we told that to Euler he prompt had the idea of showing these “different spots”. So we went to Woodbine Beach which has a really nice wooded area to walk through, picnic/bbq zones, places to play volleyball, a boardwalk to walk on… it’s a perfect choice for relaxing on the beach during the good weather or going to the Tim Horton’s for a coffee. Woodbine Beach is a popular spot for picnics, sunbathing and swimming.
The last stop were the Scarborough Crescent Park where there are beautiful cliffs (perfect spot for great photos) and then Bluffers Park (our favorite!). We fell in love with this park. The water was Emerald green and there was a lot of people taking photos (for a photoshoot)… I can imagine the reason. This park is definitely amazing!
One of the main reasons why we recommend RC Transfer city tours is because the staff is very attentive, kind and during our tour we asked for many information so we could make the most of our time together. We learned so many things about Canada! 🙂
During the city tour in Toronto they also offer some snacks and water as courtesy. Another courtesy are the photos! Euler took a lot of great pictures of us! o/
Blog #PartiuMundo was welcomed as a guest, however it has not influenced our opinion. For more information about the hotel, visit its official website.
So now you know… if you’re planning a city tour in Toronto, don’t forget to get in touch with RC Transfer and book a tour. Niagara Falls is one of their famous tour btw!
