Toronto Urban Adventures
Day tours, with a local
Toronto Urban Adventure offers Toronto walking tours designed to delight both locals and visitors alike! Get under the skin of the city and into the nooks and crannies other Toronto tours don't go! Toronto is best experienced in a small group with a local guide eager to share what they love most about their city. Located on the shore of Lake Ontario, Canada's largest and most multicultural city has something for everyone! Indulge in this great city and see it from a local’s perspective on a unique Urban Adventures Toronto walking tour.
Toronto is a city bursting at the seams with culture; foodies can indulge in cuisine from all over the globe. Museum lovers can lose themselves in gallery upon gallery of art, exhibits, and artifacts. Outdoor enthusiasts will discover Toronto is a "city in a park" with swaths of green space dotting the downtown, cutting through the city in deep valleys, and throughout the metropolitan area. Even if you only have 24 hours in Toronto, the city will be sure to impress you.
The city's seasonal and cultural celebrations are as varied and as spirited as its people, whether it's the Toronto International Film Festival, Pride Week, Caribana, or the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Toronto is also a hotbed for live music, comedy, theatre, dance, and other performing arts and has seen many of its artists reach the highest levels of achievement both nationally and on stages around the world. Whatever you're interested in, there are plenty of things to do in Toronto.

How Toronto Got Its Name

28 Nov 2013 This was an excellent tour! My husband and I have lived in Toronto our whole lives but still managed to learn an awful lot from our guide. The pork sampled at all the restaurants was excellent and was a great reflection of our local cuisine. I also appreciated the focus on sustainability and food practices held to the highest standard.
12 Nov 2013 This was an excellent tour! Our tour guide James was really entertaining and easy to listen to. I would recommend this tour more for visitors than for locals; being from the city we found this tour less novel than other Toronto tours we've done. Also, while it was great to have gone underground, I expected given the title of this tour to have been able to go up in a skyscraper. However, this was an excellent your and I have definitely recommended Urban Adventure tours to many of my friends. They are a great way to learn more about the city we live in!
24 Aug 2013 James was amazing. I can't wait to take our next tour the next time we visit Toronto.
31 Jul 2013 Met James at 10 am on a Saturday and gave us a great tour of the local neighborhood and afterward g gave us some local places to eat which were good. Well worth it, great way to see the city.
02 Jul 2013 I was very pleased! I learned about the gritty side of TO which is what I asked for! It was amazing to learn about the underground graffiti scene in Kensington Market! And Jason's local knowledge is fantastic! First time trying butter tart made it a memorable experience.
20 Jun 2013 Mike is a great guide
30 May 2013 Jason led us on a unique adventure through the city that lived up to the name, “When pigs fry”. The tour itself was a delightful trifecta of Toronto’s history, an high-level overview of the neighborhoods, and food (num num num)..
22 May 2013 I live in the city and learned so many things I didn't know! Dave was SUPER awesome.
16 May 2013 This was an excellent tour that gave so much insight to Toronto's history both through events and architecture. As a Toronto-native, I have gained a new appreciation for my city and am able to look at it in a whole new light!
01 May 2013 James was an exceptional guide. Knowledgeable, funny and friendly, I would recommend he and this tour.
