And of course, wherever you find multiculturalism, you also find an epic gastronomy scene. On our Toronto walking tours, expect to be given the inside scoop on everything from its thrilling theatre scene to its art, shopping, gastronomy scene, and more.

Let us introduce you to the city of Toronto with our Downtown and Waterfront guided tour, where you will discover some of its most character-defining spots. Starting at Meridian Hall, a Mid-century masterpiece of a performing arts centre, your guide will take you past St. Lawrence’s Market to shop for locally made produce and crafts and then amble along the waterfront. Then you will get a dose of culture at the renowned Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit and Powerplant Contemporary Art Museum. On the second half of the tour, your local guide will take you to the city’s most famous buildings, including Union Station, Brookfield Place, Scotiabank Arena, and the iconic CN Tower. After revelling in the city views from 553 metres in the sky at the top of the tower, we will head back down to Earth to finish the journey at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

After you’ve become well acquainted with, see what else the city has to offer on our Highlights tour. While it is packed with history, the tour focuses more on the delicious commercial and cultural sides of the city. From the Bell Lightbox, home of the Toronto International Film Festival, to the Alexandra Theatre, Roy Thompson Hall, and Wintergarden Theatre, you will deep dive into Toronto’s obsession with cinema and theatre. Along the way, you will pass Canada’s Walk of Fame and spot the stars of celebrities that hail from this talented city.

What is a self-guided tour?

A self-guided tour is a type of tour where visitors explore a destination on their own using an audio guide or a map. Unlike a guided tour, visitors are not led by a tour guide and are free to choose their own pace and explore the sights that interest them the most. Self-guided tours offer more flexibility and freedom to visitors. They are a popular option for those who prefer to explore a destination independently. 

Is a Walking Tour suitable for all ages?

The walking tour is suitable for all ages, but keep in mind that it involves a fair amount of walking and standing, so participants should be able to walk for at least 2.5 hours. Additionally, wearing comfortable walking shoes and bringing a water bottle can help ensure that you're comfortable throughout the tour

What is a Multilingual Audio tour?

A multilingual audio tour is a type of tour that provides visitors with audio guides in multiple languages. Visitors can use headphones to listen to the audio guide as they explore a destination, with the audio guide providing information about the sights, history, and culture of the area. The audio guides are typically pre-recorded and offer visitors the option to choose their preferred language.
