ABOUT US

WALK T.O. – Toronto’s Leading Educational Walking Tour Company

We, at WALK T.O., have been providing unique, guided educational walking tours of Toronto for middle and high school groups for over 11 years. Founded in 2011 by a teacher and a journalist, our tours align with Ontario curriculum requirements and focus on interactive learning. We bring Toronto to life by sharing its history, culture and the stories of its people. To date, we have taken over 30,000 students on our tours.

Our team of guides are university graduates and educators who are passionate about the environment, the arts, media and urban planning. Most of our guides are long-time Toronto residents, who have a passion for sharing their knowledge and stories of the city. Click here to read about each one.

In 2022, WALK T.O. was acquired by Toronto Bicycle Tours & Events, another longstanding outdoor tour company in Toronto with an excellent track record.

Our spring tour season our season starts in mid March and ends in late June. We also run tours in the fall season from September to late November. Our tour slate of favourites have been updated for 2023, so you can expect the same high-quality tours that you and your students have come to love.

Testimonials

“The Green walk was fantastic! It had strong curriculum links for what we cover in class, i.e. ecological footprint and sustainability, as well as alternative land uses and urban planning.”

–Kim E, Head of Geography, Thornhill Secondary School

“Our students enjoyed all aspects of the walk, but if I had to pick a favourite, it would be the reporter-on-the-street activity. We were amazed how they took to it and the courage they demonstrated in approaching the public. The follow up assignments were excellent also. We had them complete the news article as individuals and the advertising assignment in their groups. The rubrics were also well thought out.”

–Alison D, Grade 8 Teacher, Bloordale MS, Etobicoke, ON
