Що ви робитимете

It would be my pleasure to take you on a journey, through a quaint and historical district of what this multicultural city of Toronto has to offer you.

THE JUNCTION DISTRICT:
I'll walk you through this decades-old historical neighbourhood which was founded within the northwest area of the historical Junction triangle. During the early part of the 20th century between 1900 and 1920 first wave of European immigrants of Italian, Polish, Macedonian, Croatian, Irish and Maltese who moved to the area where they settled and established a community. Its recent revitalization of coffee shops, restaurants and small boutiques, caters today to its urban inhabitants of hipsters.

During this walk, you will see older architecture and witness the new developments within the neighbourhood. What it has managed to retain throughout the years, through its small businesses and landmarks that still holds cultural value and beauty. Even entering some of its business.

A 2-hour tour starts with us meeting at TTC Keele Station, situated on line 2. It will take 5-10 mins to brief you on the tour before boarding the Keele bus #41. The bus will head north on Keele St towards Dundas St West. When we exit the bus, we will make our way crossing to the north-west corner of Keele St and Dundas St West. Our tour will commence west on Dundas St towards Runnymede Rd return east to our starting point.
Other things to note
If you're interested in booking this experience and the scheduled time I m available but would like to book another time, I m open to working something out with you. ....Most importantly, due to COVID 19, I would advise each guest to bring a mask, since most business would like customers too.

I'm Vishnu, the founder of Toronto’s Hidden Gems: Tours Off The Beaten Path, who is here to provide my personal brand of service with Soul. I hold 35 years of extensive customer relations experience in the food, entertainment and natural health industries and believe that a key component to living a fulfilling life is to venture outside of one's own cultural surroundings.

Being open to learning, experiencing and appreciating what other cultures have to offer, helped me to see the similarities we all hold and share in common. I have a deep love and appreciation for the older neighbourhood districts and value those parts of the city that have retained both a rich historical and cultural narratives.

I m here to show the secrets of Toronto, outside the familiar tourist bubble to those interested in taking a journey off the Beaten Path.

I really appreciate how much Vishu and his girfriend,Mandana, took care of me. They showed around very historical and special villiage which I have been interested in exploring all the time. They were good friends of mine during our experience, I felt helpful and knowledgeable from Vishu. I hope more people try his experience if you are new in TO, Vishu and Mandana will be there for you. I will personally keep in touch with Mandana! Thanks for today.

Vishnu is an excellent walk leader! I was fascinated with his depth of knowledge and wisdom and passion about Junction area in Toronto. I was also amazed by the way he draws a clear picture of the history of Neighborhood and the City through showcasing the spaces in the Neighborhood. He has this unique talent to tie in the culture with the space and built environment.He takes you out of touristic bubble to somewhere you can actually get a sense of real city life and masterfully leads you back in the History and lives of people who built this Neighborhood. During the walk I got this warm sense of feeling at home and a strong bond with the Neighborhood,City and the people who live there.Vishnu was very caring and mindful of my pace and my needs. I very much enjoyed.This is a unique experience that I would absolutely recommend!
