In alignment with social distancing directives issued by Toronto Public Health to slow the spread of COVID-19, the TSA’s in-person tours are postponed until it is safe to gather again. In the meantime, we’ve created new online programming to allow you to explore Toronto’s architecture from home! Click on the links below to learn more.
For information about TSA’s Walking Tours, view the various tours and follow the “Register Now” link from the tour page to go directly to registration for that tour. On the registration page, be sure to select your desired date first, then select your ticket types and quantities. When you purchase your ticket you should get TWO (2) confirmation emails: one from the payment processor (Paypal) and one from Eventbrite with your tour ticket attached as a PDF. Please be sure to PRINT your ticket and bring it with you to the tour. You may also present your ticket on a smartphone or tablet. Please be sure to include your mobile phone number and email when registering so that we can notify you in advance where possible of any changes to the meeting place or cancellations.
TAKING A TOUR
Our walking tours go rain or shine so please dress accordingly and carry an umbrella if rain is forecast. On warmer days, it is recommended that you carry a water bottle as the tour does not stop for refreshment breaks. In cases of extreme weather the guide may at his or her own discretion, cancel the tour. In this event, all participants will receive a full refund. All tours are OUTDOOR walking tours and typically do not enter any buildings. Please feel free to take lots of photos but note that the guide may not be able to wait for shutterbugs if they are holding up the group.
CHILDREN LOVE ARCHITECTURE TOO…
Children age 12 and under are free when accompanied by a paid adult. Strollers are welcome but please note that the tour group cannot wait for stragglers and the Tour Guide is not responsible for the safety and security of children on the tour. The guide will accommodate stroller accessible routes as needed.
If you or someone in your group has any accessibility requirements, please let us know when purchasing your ticket. This will allow our guides to know in advance and modify the route as required. The guides are not permitted to provide mobility assistance and the TSA does not provide any mobility devices as part of the tour.
Our tour tickets are non-refundable except when tours are cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. If your tour has been cancelled you will be contacted with the information you provided when purchasing your tickets.
If you are unable to make it to your chosen time and date, we are happy to transfer your ticket to a different tour! Contact our Tours Coordinator at walk@TorontoSocietyofArchitects.ca to ensure there is availability for your new time and date.
TSA Members receive free tickets to all Walking Tours. Please refer to your TSA Membership Welcome email or a recent TSA e-Bulletin for your promo code. If you’re not a member already, join now to stay informed on this and other great TSA initiatives and events!
Our walking tours program is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Ontario Association of Architects.
