      Hello fellow VTers,
      I will be in Toronto for a week in August attending the Rogers Cup tennis tournament. I will need a prepaid SIM card for my unlocked GSM phone. Can you recommend a carrier?
      I will not have a car. Is there any public transit to Rexall Center from Yorkville?

      What is the current process for Customs and Immigration at Toronto Pearson from the US?

      Toronto May 8, 2015 at 2:07 PM

      Guys, who has recently been through Terminal 1 at Pearson from outside Canada? The Official Spousal Unit is flying from DFW to Pearson this weekend, and we are trying to determine the process for Customs and Immigration.

      We have often been through C & I in T3 on American Airlines, but not on Air Canada, a different terminal.

      In the US, we now have Automated Passport Control kiosks ( ) which supposedly speed things up nicely. But so far, what little that I can find suggests that the kiosks in Toronto for inbound people is only for Canadian residents.The airport website, Canadian Immigration website and Air Canada website have all been remarkably unhelpful...

      Anyone with recent experience?

      I plan on going to the Falls next week. Is it really worth the trip during this time of year? It looks like everything is closed and all the tours are off season. I'm flying in from Ca. to CT. and am planning a day trip to the Falls.

    • Niagara falls visit and stay

      by shwetabh_shrivastava Online Now Aug 10, 2012 at 4:11 PM


      I am planning to visit Niagara falls from New York on Sat Aug 19th and return back on 20th. I am planning to take Amtrak and so expect to arrive on 19th at about 5pm, but I am not sure which return train to take for Sunday. I have two options: 12:30pm and 2:30pm. Normally I would prefer the latter one but it is a bit costlier. So just wanted to enquire whether I have enough time for the visit to the falls, taking the famous rides there (maid of the mist etc.) and visit a couple of famous places around? Will I be able to fit all these things if I take the 12:30pm train on Sunday?

      Also wanted to check if someone could suggest a good hotel not too far but not too costly either. Something in the range of50 - 60. A good guesthouse will also be fine.

    • [4 - 5 days trip] Plan to enjoy the Fall from both sides

      by NonSleeper Online Now Jul 6, 2012 at 10:31 PM

      Hi there,

      I and my girlfriend are planning for a trip there. I have reviewing scripts here, yet I think getting more customized suggestions is precious. Virtualtourist members have helped me a lot in past travels and I believe it will work out just that way this time.

      So here are our inputs:

      - Time: 4-5 days

      - Expect to discover the Falls from both US and Canadian side.

      - Would love to visit other attractions around the Fall area. Our preference is something natural, such as vineyard, winery, rather than historic like museum or so. But just feel free to make your advice.

      While there are a pool of recommendations, which we wish to get some, I think we'd love to begin with these:

      - What are the most valuable places/attractions to join, given that time frame?

      - Is it better to stay on the US side and spend perhaps one day crossing to Canada to see the Fall? Or will it be better vice versa?

      - What are some affordable and acceptable places to stay?

      Thanks :)

Saturday we are planning to drive to Toronto , what should we see in Toronto or should we split our trip to

      Two nights - NF
      One night - Toronto

      Any help would be appreciated and I have been hooked to this site since I found it few days ago.

    • Boarder crossing at night

      by msharma40 Online Now Jun 14, 2012 at 10:53 AM

      Our flight lands at the Buffalo international airport at 9:00PM and then we plan to drive to our hotel in the Canada side Niagara Falls. My question is it better to wait till to the morning to cross the boarder or is it not a big hassel to cross at night? We are travelling with two small kids. We are a permanent resident of US and I beleive just showing the green card to the boarder officials is sufficient to get entry to Canada from US.
      any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      My wife and I are going to Niagara for 3 days with my parents. On day 1 we plan on a trip up to Niagara on the Lake - I've heard lots of good things about it. Day 2 is slated for the Falls and day 3 (1/2 day due to travel) is left open. Aside from the going behind the Falls and the Maiden of the Mist, any suggestions? Attractions, scenic rides and restaurants would be greatly appreciated.

      I want to celebrate my 19th birthday at Niagara (May 5th) but I'm not sure what to do. Some of my friends are still 18 and 17 so clubbing is out of the question since one of them can get caught with their fake id. What else can we do? There is going to be 5/6 of us. We're not big party animals so it doesn't have to do with getting wasted necessarily.

      I was in Niagara about 3-4 years ago, and I remember that I bought some sort of an "all inclusive" ticket to the Maid of the Mist, the tunnels, the butterflies, the walkway along the Niagara River and whirlpool and unlimited day use of public transport between them. However, I'm having trouble locating information on this. I can only find the individual tickets for each site. Could someone point me to a web site with the relevant information? Thanks.

      Nice venue for lunch at the falls

      Hi Guys we are visiting Toronto for our honeymoon in October this year and are taking an organised day trip to Niagara Falls. We have a few free hours to grab some lunch and would appreciate any suggestions you had.

      Thinking of somewhere with a view of the falls if possible - something a bit special rather than a budget place.

      Open to suggestions we eat pretty much anything but a 'Canadian' venue would be great if possible (by that I mean serving local food)

      Many thanks,
