We went on the downtown tour of Toronto with Peter, and a lovely group of fellow tourists. Peter was so welcoming, engaging and our trip to Toronto was made by this tour. Got to “scratch the surface” to the beauty of Toronto as Peter talked...More

I've done a number of free tours in various cities, and this "Power, Politics, and the Path" tour with Aaron was only mediocre. Aaron was invested in his family's ties to the city ("My father worked here," "My aunt worked here," etc.), but the tour...More

Thanks for taking the tour with us and for providing such thoughtful and detailed feedback, Kim. It would seem from your critique that you were expecting a more academic historically informative experience from a 90-minute free downtown walking tour than what Aaron delivered. It's hard...More

My daughters and I had such a fun time with Michelle on the Toronto downtown free tour, despite the very cold, blizzardy weather! We learned some fascinating tidbits that we couldn't have gleaned from any other source. Thanks for being so entertaining, Michelle.

Really enjoyed the tour and appreciated the way Bri went out of the way to both keep us warm and help with managing a stroller. She took ample time to answer questions and had so much extra Information on current activities in Toronto. Definitely recommend.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
