A TORONTO ‘HELLO!’ – GET TO KNOW OUR CITY WITH FREE RESIDENT-GUIDED WALKING TOURS

Established several years ago by the City of TORONTO, TAPto has roughly 90 tour guides who know the city’s neighbourhoods well. Tours last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours, and by filling in a simple one-page booking sheet visitors can pinpoint their interests and availability. Once that’s done, a tour guide will be assigned.

TAP8KENSINGTON1TORONTO Greeters are volunteers who love their city and enjoy showing visitors its parks, architecture, history, neighbourhoods, transit system and the arts.
Tour groups are small – usually 1 or 2 people, sometimes a few more. A package of maps (bicycle trails, transit network, parks & gardens, a city map) are given to each person on the tour.  Best of all, it’s free.  No tipping.  It’s a great deal and operates all year around.

TAP7The Global Greeter Network is an informal association of Greeter programs around the world. In Canada SHERBROOKE, Quebec and CALGARY, Alberta are also members.
