City tours are a pleasurable way to discover new locales, find hidden urban gems, and glean city-planning ideas for a life-simulation computer game. Arrive at inspiring designs with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get one voucher for the Multicultural Kensington Market & Chinatown tour from Toronto Urban Adventures (a $25 value). The tour departs at 10 a.m. every day except Monday.
Celebrating Toronto's sundry culture, the Urban Adventures Multicultural Kensington Market & Chinatown tour dusts the city's diverse pavement with an informative excursion through local shops, eateries, and colourful neighbourhoods. The two-hour jaunt commences at the Art Gallery of Ontario, where an engaging guide preps up to 12 travelers with the day's itinerary before assigning everyone a buddy based on freckle formations. Cruise by bright graffiti murals and stop in at international eateries to savour local delicacies (not included in today's deal) as the helpful escort covers Kensington's evolution from a working-class Jewish market into today's blend of Chinese and Bohemian culture. The expedition ends at Dragon City Shopping Mall, where sojourners can indulge in Chinese goodies or duck into nearby vintage boutiques to check out novel items such as jewellery and 1964 ham sandwiches.
Under the leadership of tour veterans Steve Woodall and Jason Kucherawy, Tour Guys' team of knowledgeable guides combines talents from other professions to lead entertaining tours of Vancouver and Toronto. Actors, comedians, history buffs, and teachers exchange their workplace attire for comfortable clothes and a stylish thinking cap to chauffer clients around historic neighbourhoods, dispensing facts while showing them a side of the city not often seen. Guides direct both free daily tours and affordable paid sessions, including ghost tours, graffiti tours, beer tours, and walking tours that follow the Nordic explorers' first pub crawl. Steve and Jason also host tour classes that teach future guides the skills needed to host their own fun and educational tours.
