Our neighbourhood heritage walking tour program was introduced in 1994 to provide residents and visitors with an opportunity to learn about the heritage and architecture of the city. All tours are researched, designed, and led by local historians, community groups, and professionals who volunteer their time and energy. Whether you’re interested in learning more about Toronto’s architecture, exploring natural heritage or hearing stories of our diverse city and its past, we’ve got a Heritage Toronto tour for you!
This year is our 22nd year of exploring Toronto through walking tours, and our fourth year of bike, bus and enhanced (formerly “boutique”) tours. Heritage Toronto Tours run from the end of April until early October so there’s plenty of time to catch as many of our fun and informative tours as you’d like. Bring a water bottle, wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather – tours go rain or shine!
This year we are inviting everyone to pre-register for our tours through our website. Pre-registration will guarantee you a spot on the tour, give you access to added material, and keep you connected with Heritage Toronto. If a tour you registered for must be cancelled, you will receive an email. Someone will also show up at the tour’s starting point to let you know.
Heritage Toronto also offers a selection of its tours to private groups. For more information, please call 416-338-2175.
