The TORONTO AMBASSADOR PROGRAM has been operating for several years now, and is becoming increasingly popular. Volunteer greeters number about 100. Book in advance, and one of them will introduce you to our city, show off our architecture, shopping precincts, theatres, gallery districts, restaurants, neighbourhoods, and a lot more.
Best of all – it’s free, including a package of maps and guide books. No tips.
Our greeters love their city and it shows. They are proud, passionate volunteers who have dedicated their spare time to show you the best of Toronto. It’s their way of saying: “thanks for visiting us!”
