Review from Cara McLauchlin from Detroit:

“We enjoyed our tour very much. It was great to see a part of Toronto that none of us had been to before (The Distillery District). Our guide, Laura was very friendly and got along wonderfully with our group. She gave us lots of recommendations for local restaurants.”

Review from Laura, Lokafy Host:

“First Lokafy meetup was a success!  They wanted to go to the distillery so I took them to the sake brewery and we did a tasting, most of their first time trying sake. We walked around, I told them a bit about the distillery and the spots I liked in there then we stopped for lunch at mill st brewery. By the time we were finished it was just past 4:30 so I sent them off to Soma chocolatier for dessert and with a list of recommendations for the rest of the weekend! They were lovely and it was so much fun!”

Review from Peggy Aycinena from San Francisco:

“The Lokafy tour was superb and just what our group of 4 needed, 2 early 30′s and 2 early 60′s. Maria met us promptly at our rental condo and was immediately responsive to our interests. She took us on an extensive 2-hour walking tour on a beautiful Saturday morning — St. Lawrence Market, the waterfront, the baseball stadium and CN needle plaza, plus the added highlight of seeing views out over the city from the rooftop garden of a commercial building. We ended at the train station meeting up with family coming in from Oshawa. Maria timed our tour so we were at the station right at the end of our 2-hour tour, which was great. It was really fun to be out and about in such a pedestrian friendly city with Maria as our guide!”

“We were delighted to learn that Maria has been in Toronto just 5 years, so Toronto is still interesting and fascinating to her. That’s always the best — touring around with a ‘local’ who still sees the city with fresh eyes. This whole tour was so much more interesting and personal than a packaged tour because of chatting with Maria about her background and how dynamic her life in Toronto has been since she arrived. It’s almost impossible to compare this tour with any kind of packaged tour!”

Review from Maria, Lokafy Host:

“I wanted to write you a short update about my tour with Lokafy this Saturday. It was actually a very fascinating experience. We all had a great time and I learned from the guests as much as they learned from me (I hope). I took them to St. Lawrence market, to Harbourfront, CN tower and to my work as we have an incredible view from the roof. They really appreciated that. Its something that they couldn’t do by themselves and its not like an ordinary tourist destination.”
