Our tours bring people together. Join us as we travel hundreds of kilometres to experience the city – up close and on the streets – through parks, to well-known landmarks, and in the many neighbourhoods that make up Toronto.
The Tours program is curated by Heritage Toronto, but driven by over 100 volunteers, 25 community partners, and an annual cohort of Emerging Historians. Together, we have reshaped and shared the stories of Toronto and connected communities across both time and place.
NOTE: 2019 Tour season starts Thursday, May 2. This year, we are excited to offer 10 new tours from the total of 65 tours that run until October. Check out the What’s On Calendar for the full schedule.
Did you know? The program started in 1994 with 18 tours – the first featuring downtown architecture.
Whether you're organizing a professional seminar or a casual outing with friends, we're here to help. Let our team of experts guide your group through the streets of Toronto, or deliver a special talk on a particular neighbourhood or community.
Start planning for this milestone season which features 10 brand new tours and expanded digital content. Our handy brochure provides a quick guide and reference to help with the decision-making.
