(1) Shuttle to/from airport and (2) rtn train trip to Niagra Falls from Toronto

by dougo53

Hi everyone

We plan to fly into Toronto from Quebec for a couple of days in early October as we want to see Niagra Falls before heading back home to Australia. (I am assuming that flying into Toronto would optimise our time in Toronto, but I'm open to suggestions).

(1) Could you please tell me if there is a shuttle service from the airport to major hotels in the city (and return)? If so, any idea of cost each way/per person and if it is recommended that I book it in advance?

(2) I've seen reference to trains to Niagra Falls in this forum. I was wondering if they are reliable, and how often they run from Toronto, how long does the journey take and any idea of the cost (return ticket)?? And finally, what is the return service like to Toronto?

Many thanks for your help.

offers a shuttle from the airport to several major hotels. Details and fares on the link. I would book this type of service in advance, personally.

http://www.gtaa.com/en/travellers/airport_information/ground_transportatio/public_transportatio/ lists other tranport options.

You don't say which City in Quebec you will fly to Toronto from. If it is Montreal, It might be better to rent a car and go see the Falls before flying back to OZ. As I recall, it is about a 4 hour drive. By having a car, all your difficulties with public transport are taken care of. You would rent the car with a planned dropoff at Toronto Airport. It might be cheaper than flying and public transport, and certainly more convenient.

(1) There is an Airporter bus that connects the airport to several downtown hotels. The cost is about C$17 each way. It runs every 30 minutes.
(2) I agree that it is probably better to rent a car to Niagara Falls. The drive each way should take about 2 hours. Only snag may be parking in Niagara Falls once you get there. Although there are some public parking right across from the Falls itself, the charge is quite hefty [in my opinio].

If from Montreal, it is a 4 to 6 hour drive which isn't bad because you just take one highway (hwy 401) once you get out of Quebec province and will take you all the way to Hwy 404 and lead you all the way to downtown Toronto. It's a pretty smooth drive too. There is also shuttle service from the airport to the entrance of Fairmount Hotel on Front Street in Toronto which is centre of all the attractions. That is the end stop of the shuttle bus service which cost about $17. I don't recall knowing any trains that goes to Niagara Falls but there are tours available in the city that will take you there and stay overnight for gambling & sightseeing. It is only a 1.5 to 2 hours drive from Toronto. It depends if you want to rent a car to see attractions just outside of the Toronto area. I hope that helps!!!

Travel Tips for Toronto

Iron Maiden live at The Molson Ampitheatre!

by Dark_Reflections

Well, depending on the person, I would want to take someone to a concert at the Molson Ampitheatre. It is of course a theatre, and everyone likes music. It's size is just perfect, so you for low prices you can get good seats enabling you to enjoy the show to its fullest potential. My best memory of Toronto would have to be seeing Iron Maiden live at the Molson Ampitheatre (they are my favourite band of course). The show was simply astounding. The stage used lighting effects to its fullest potential, and the amps were booming with an incredible sound quality. Fans were awed as the 3 bands playing put on the greatest show I have ever witnessed. Our seats were in the 300's, and we could still see the band better than we could on the jumbo screens. All in all, it was an unforgettable experience.

Pick up a tourist guide in the city and take your pick...
I'd go to the theatre district Harbourfront and Toronto Islands

Picture: downtown office area - mostly banks. Old building is the Royal York Hotel on Front Street, opposite the Union Railway Station.

Newspapers

by MissAntarctica2002

Toronto has several daily newspapers with different editorial orientations. Here's a bit about them to help you know which would suit you.

Toronto Star
Very balanced, targeted at wide audience. Contains a lot of human interest content and events listings. Probably the best choice for a traveller. Can be viewed online at thestar.com

The Globe and Mail
National paper targeted at business people. Slightly right of centre on political spectrum. High-brow Arts and Entertainment section. Online at globeandmail.com

National Post
National paper also with a business focus. Right-wing political spin for the most part.

Toronto Sun
I hate to be a snob, but I find this a pretty low-brow paper prone to knee-jerk types of reactions. Very pro-police. Read for Sports section and SunShine girl on pg 2.

Watch sporting events

by Sharrie

Watch sporting events from SKYDOME or attending a concert there. Will have to check on the schedule the next time I'm in town, perhaps next month? Watch out for the Blue Jays.

Official Site: http://www.skydome.com. If you're a hockey fan, this is the city to be in. The Canadian Maple Leaf is world renowned; sorry but that's all I know about ice hockey    :-(((

Keeping to yourself

by fairy_dust

If you're from a rural area, you're probably used to saying hello to strangers and chatting with random people who come your way. Well, in big cities like Toronto, you'll likely get ignored or sometimes even scowled at if you do that. During World Youth Day, it was different - everyone was friendly and even police officers posed for silly pictures with WYD pilgrims, but in general people in the city tend to mind their own business and expect others to do the same. Nothing wrong with that, but I thought this tip might be useful for people who are not used to an urban environment.
