Toronto day tours - Ontario (Canada)

August 1, 2 - 2004

Are you looking for travel info on Toronto? Or info about the tourist attractions in Toronto? Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and is located in Ontario along the shores of the homonomous lake. The city itself hosts various attractions for tourists, including many museums, the CN tower and the architecture of the downtown. Not too far from Toronto city center, there are the islands on lake Ontario and by a relatively short drive, it will be possible to visit Niagara Falls.
