Toronto Free Walking Tours
Follow me as I take you on a FREE walking tour through the history of York and Toronto, from the late 18th century to present day metropolis.  We meet at the dog fountain located at Berczy Park, a short walk east from Union Station along Front Street.  Berczy Park is directly behind the Gooderham (Flatiron) Building, nestled between Front St and Wellington St, in Toronto, Ontario.  Tours last around two hours, and the walking distance is between 4km and 5km.


We will walk through old town Toronto highlighting the history of then York, looking at architecture both old and new, talking about famous and important people in Toronto and Canada's history, and head east into what was the centre of the old town York and present day Old Toronto.  We will visit the Distillery District, important York and Toronto landmarks, and finish up at the front of the south (main market building present day), St. Lawrence Market building at Front St and Jarvis St.  (The tour will not go into the market, and certain buildings may not be open to the public and/or tour groups at any given time of year).
Although each tour will try to follow the same path, no tour will be the same, so we shall learn about where to eat, what to do, what to see, how to get there, when to go, how to go, people, buildings, history, geography, and as much as we can fit into two hours!  By the end of the tour, you will have a thorough understanding of Toronto, and very detailed understandings of Ontarios history, and Canadian and North American history going back thousands and thousands of years!

Please wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring weather sensitive items such as sunglasses, hats, sunscreen, umbrellas and the like, when necessary.  Toronto can be freezing in winter and boiling in the summer!

Want a private two, three, four hour Old Town Toronto tour?  Half a day or a full day touring all over Toronto, seeing parks, museums, buildings, and tourist attractions?  Do you and your group need a guide for the Toronto Island(s)?  Want me to accompany you in a taxi for the day?  Day trip to Niagara Falls (groups of 4 or less!)?

You, we, or I can decide how to offer your tour!

Free walking tours are the foundation of my company, and how I will always offer most of my time, however private tours are available by request, where time and dates permit.  Please make sure to specifically ask about a private tour when contacting me, as all bookings will be for two hour free tours at 10am and/or 1pm when available, unless you let me know.

Private tours will NOT be free tours.

Rates, payment, times, dates and every detail, can and will be discussed when I return your correspondence.  Booking well in advance and also not during peak summer months will ensure more availability, thank you!
