Three weeks, 21 days.

Using the 4000 dollar figure and with free accommodation I think many tourists could survive on $190 CN each day. (Rough figure around $135 US each day.) I could do it but it depends on what you intend to do.

I am a cheapskate so for me it would be cheap eats, any drinking would be in cheapest places or even take home from a package store. I would take advantage of cheaper city transportation vs a limo or even a taxi.

There are "do it yourself" tours of Toronto you can look up on the internet.

What do you intend to do in this city? Into fancy expensive nightclubs? Eat at best restaurants? Tip lavishly and spend foolishly? Are you good with money where you live or does money run through your fingers like water no matter where you go?

If you are always running out of money no matter where you are - maybe stay for half the time in Toronto and have twice the daily spending allowance.

What month will you be in Toronto?

Do you have access to additional funds using a debit card?

We tend to less expensive attractions and activities too so that seems like a fortune to me. As pointed out above, it depends on what you want to do. I will say that we have friends who adhere to the adage, "guests, like fish, begin to smell after a few days." and we don't agree with them. We love it when friends spend much longer times with us. It's fun to share local activities that we normally just don't bother with by ourselves and it's always fun to catch up on all that has happened since our last visit. If you've been invited for three weeks, I'd say enjoy it . . . and do treat your hosts to a couple dinners out while you're there.

Make a list of things you want to do, possibly including your hosts in a few of them, and see how much that is going to cost. Then adjust your remaining budget around that and you'll be fine. Money is a strange thing; if you plan ahead, you can do nearly anything. If you just let it slip through your fingers, you never seem to have enough. It's all up to you . . . ;)

Enjoy your trip.
