This tour begins in the heart of a western downtown neighbourhood, next to the Bloor UP Express train station, providing tourists with convenient access from either Pearson Airport or Union Station. As we walk along a nearby bike trail, guests are provided with a quick synopsis of the surrounding artwork, with 10 intriguing mural stops throughout the tour. Photography is highly encouraged. A unique interpretation of each piece of artwork can also be shared amongst guests in between mural locations. Guests are also given secret clues, called 'city gems' that reveal the themes of upcoming murals en route. In addition, wayfinding of the area is provided, allowing guests to better orientate themselves within the city landscape. Following the journey via Google Maps is optional though the tour is more fulfilling as a surprise element. It is also accompanied by historically relevant music, weather pending. This tour will be approximately 90 minutes in length, with 20-30 minutes at the end for Q&A + a list of local events happening in the city. The goal is to inspire and invigorate the minds of all those who participate, using an artistic lens to get a thorough understanding of the city's design.
