TAKE A TOUR

Explore Toronto's history with a private guided tour

*** Tours are currently on pause due to Covid-19 ***

Thanks to Covid, I'm not giving private tours at the moment, but I'm very excited to start them up as soon as the pandemic allows. If you'd like to talk about booking a tour ahead of time so that you can look forward to it during the lockdown, I'd love to set something up! Get in touch at adam@torontodreamsproject.com.

Here are some of the tours I offer:

A Morbid Tour of Old Toronto
Uncover grisly and gruesome tales from Toronto's formative years in the neighbourhood where the city began. From the elegant stained glass windows of the city's grandest cathedral to stories of brutal riots, duels and plagues, you'll travel back in time to the early 1800s to learn about decades of violence that rocked the city to its core. A walk through the historic neighbourhood that was once at the heart of bloody battles over the future of Canadian democracy. (Approx. 1.5 hours.)

A Morbid Tour of Queen's Park
The grounds of Ontario's provincial parliament building are filled with statues. Many have complicated and bloody pasts. From the founder of Toronto to toppled monarchs to poets and prime ministers, many of the figures who helped to shape Toronto died gruesome deaths that give us insight into the city of today. (Approx. 1.5 hours.)

A Morbid Tour of the St. Lawrence Market
Toronto's oldest market has a dark side. Behind the produce stalls and peameal bacon sandwiches lie tales of murder, tragedy and flames. From gruesome accidents to a vengeful goat, you'll explore a side of one of the city's most popular attractions that tourists rarely see. (Approx. 30 minutes.)
