Last Thursday, Oct 27th, we had an amazing time showing Riverside around for a group of concierge from Les Clefs D’Or Toronto.
With their mission in mind, the Riverside BIA hosted a tour with a group of Les Clefs D’Or Concierges in order to showcase a few of many amazing gems of Riverside. Time was short but full of information and exchange of tips and ideas.
Take a look at some great moments of that night on our blog post.
