The organizers love tango, as much as they love good coffee, good food, good wine and nice accommodation that is close to all the actions in a metropolitan city like Toronto. The Tango8 Fest team is happy to make your tango adventure in Toronto a fabulous one.
We didn't receive any benefit by recommending these places, they are either tried and trusted by us or Toronto Tango Community, or are goodies we found online.
It is CAD$3.25 every trip, connecting all the subway trains, buses & streetcar. When taking TTC, remember to take a transfer ticket upon paying or using a token. You will need that in order to change to different vehicles.
