Independent Tour

Toronto is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Here, international
ideas cross with Canadian culture. A culture of warmth, energy and style, Toronto
is enriched by the fusion of traditions, passions and perspectives on life of the more
than 100 cultures found here. Contrast that with the French-Canadian cities of
Québec and Montréal, which have a distinct European feel, and you’re sure to have a
great trip.
