Feel the heartbeat of the city

When you arrive in Toronto it's hard to miss The CN Tower, but the city and, in particular, the centre of the city offers much more. There's our iconic city hall and the hidden gardens and courtyards of our financial centre. The oldest part of the city includes St Lawrence Market, which National Geographic says is the best market in the world. There's the Path, our underground city, buildings by world famous architects and a garden on our waterfront based on Bach's cello suites. This is a private walking tour and the best way to get a real feel for the city. The tour includes public transit.
3-4 hours


The itinerary of this tour depends upon where I pick you up. If you are staying at a hotel near our city halls we will start there. But if it is in another location I will plan a different route. You can be certain the tour will include the St. Lawrence Market, our underground city, The PATH, and the many architectural gems both old and new to be found in the centre of the city.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at your hotel unless it happens to be in the suburbs in which case we can arrange a suitable downtown location.I will have a sign which says Tours by Locals - LH

End location: I will take you back to the hotel if it is in the downtown area or to the place where you can get transportation back to your hotel.

Duration: 3 hours

This tour is best taken in the morning or the early afternoon.I would suggest 10.00 am for the morning tour and 1.00 pm for the afternoon tour but I'm flexible.

A Recent Review of this tour

We were very excited to do this tour with Linda. Her passion, knowledge, intellect and her kindness radiated from each word that she spoke and she showed us her city Toronto Ontario Canada. We felt so blessed that we could meet a person that knew the history and architecture and she listened carefully to what we wanted as a couple and Taylor made our tour with her to us and our desires . We've done many private tors in many different countries but this was by far one of our favorites.
