Thank you. Yes, we are definitely going on a tour of the Rogers Center. Already have that scheduled. Not sure they are still offering the Toronto Hippo Tour. The group sales manager at our hotel told me he thinks it has left Toronto. Any feedback?

You may be right... website says they are moving to Vancouver... I still don't see kids enjoying a tour of a closed hockey arena... or an old mansion...

I think your time may be better spent at Harbourfront Centre

www.harbourfrontcentre.com check it out

I haven't seen a hippo tour in Toronto for a long time. And I think Casa Loma would be very boring for them and yes, it is a bit out of the way.

Thanks to both of you. I truly value your suggestions. If you think that Casa Loma would be boring for them, I definitely don't want to go there. What all is at the Harbourfront Centre for them to see and do? I was just concerned that since we are going to be there so early in June (the 4'th and 5'th, which is a Monday and Tuesday) that there might not be much going on yet. Any feedback?

I think your best bet is to check the website and maybe call them directly to see if there are any group rates for things.

I don't know if you have checked out the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) but it was renovated a couple of years ago and is terrific. If you contact them in advance they may be able to set up some sort of an art activity for your group, as they have a load of space dedictaed to students. It is located close to Queen Street West and the Chinatown for before and/or after activities and sightseeing.

They also have a Picasso exhibit running.

Thanks for asking. We had a BLAST!! During our stay, we toured the Rogers Centre, Air Canada Centre, ROM, and did the 3D movie and 4D Motion Ride at the base of the CN Tower before going to the top to experience the fantastic view from the lookout deck and walk on the glass floor. We shopped on Yonge Street, Kensington Market, Chinatown, Queen Street West, and the Eaton Centre. We ate at the St. Lawrence Market, Kensington Market, Wayne Gretzky's, and the Hard Rock.We rode the subway and streetcars multiple times. We finished the last night in Toronto by taking a 10:00 ferry ride to the islands to get awesome pictures of the skyline all lit up. Also, the Delta Chelsea was the perfect hotel and location. The next morning we left Toronto and spent a whole day at Niagara Falls. The kids and chaperones all had a wonderful time. Thanks again for all of your suggestions.

So glad you all enjoyed yourself. Kudos for you for all the work you put into making it happen. I wouldn't travel with a bunch of teenagers to save my life!
