Want to know what local Canadians do during the winter? Ever wanted to catch a live ice hockey game? Aren’t sure of the rules? Well this tour is for you!
This Toronto pop-up tour starts at great local pub in the city’s hip Liberty Village. There, you’ll meet up with your local guide and grab a pint of craft beer (or other beverage of your choice), and we’ll discuss the history and rules of Canada’s game! Your guide will also provide you with a map and general orientation of Toronto and Canadian culture. (Note that for early games, we’ll go to the pub after the game.)
After about an hour at the bar, we’ll take a 15-minute walk over to the famous Canadian National Exhibition grounds and Ricoh Coliseum — the home of Toronto’s Marlies hockey team.
Make sure to bundle up and dress appropriately as the Canadian winters can be quite frigid… but that’s just part of the fun and experience!
During the game you will be able to cheer the home team while immersing yourself in Canadian culture with a local guide by your side to answer any questions you may have. You’ll also get to try a few Timbits — a Canadian spin on the classic doughnut.
After the game, you’re free to continue partying and celebrating the afternoon or evening away in Liberty Village, which has lots of great bars and restaurants to choose from!
