Downtown Toronto hotel launches experiential tours just in time for summer

Toronto, ON - May 24, 2016:  Travelling to Toronto this summer?  A new experiential based program at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto lets you navigate Canada's most dynamic city just like a local.

Curated by a team of city experts, guests of the hotel will be able to uncover Toronto's hidden gems with self-guided tours, onsite offerings and exclusive partner experiences.

Discover where beer enthusiasts quench their thirst with the hotel's Craft Brewery tour.  From small ‘nano’ breweries serving up one keg at a time, to large-scale facilities producing lake-sized batches, this tour takes guests to some of Toronto’s best spots for locally brewed suds.  For the ultimate experience, the hotel’s Concierge team can even arrange a personal tour, where guests can meet the brew master and enjoy a sample from the tanks.  Upon returning to The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, guests will enjoy one of the best views of Toronto’s iconic CN Tower while sipping a specialty Michelada or beer cocktail at DEQ Terrace.

And, if you’re counting every step along the way - explore the city while keeping fit with a Toronto by Foot tour.  Go 10,000 and beyond with one of these hand-crafted tours which provide step-by-step instructions on how to log miles while exploring some of Toronto’s best neighborhoods.  Discover vintage couture along Queen West; snap a selfie in front of a city landmark; or sample artisanal foods at St. Lawrence Market by following illustrated maps that highlight some of the hotel’s recommended ‘must sees’ along the way.   Guests can even track their progress by using one of the hotel’s complimentary pedometers, available at the Concierge desk.

Additionally, the hotel’s Resident Artist, Jacqueline Poirier, shares her tips for exploring your inner artist with the Insider’s Guide to Art in Toronto tour.  View the colourful display of works by local and world-renowned secret wall art painters at Graffiti Alley, or visit the pedestrian-only village of the Distillery District to express your love at the Love Locks installation.   Or, create your own masterpiece with a guided workshop by Ms. Poirier back at the hotel.
