On-Foot City Tours
On-Foot City Tours is a great way to explore Toronto the Good on your own time, with three different tours to choose from: Downtown, Old Toronto, and Distillery.
With apps ability to save what you’ve visited so far, you don’t have to take in a whole tour all at once. Start half of the tour, and then go grab a bite to eat before finishing the rest.
Want to skip a stop? Or choose your own path? The On-Foot app can easily handle your drama.
If you’ve always wanted to see a ghost, On-Foot’s tour delivers Toronto’s haunting specters every time!
While most paranormal tours cannot guarantee the creepy creaks, and spine-tingling did-that-just-happen moments during the ticketed hour event you paid for, On-Foot tours take you to the next level of hunting haunts with their tours’ AR (augmented reality) capabilities.
Their talented app developers captured ghosts and stuck them right in your phone for the ultimate experience. Don’t just hear the ghost stories through your phone, see the ghosts that haunt Toronto too.
And, for a limited time, they have released their Old-Town Toronto Ghost tour for FREE! Get your scare on with their free tour until Hallowe’en!
Note: On-Foot tours only work on smartphones that have AR capabilities. Be sure to download the app before you venture on your tour to make sure your phone works.
Also, make sure you have your trusted earphones, and a full battery on your smartphone for the best On-Foot tour experience.
The Toronto & Ontario Ghosts and Hauntings Research Society has a DIY Toronto Walking tour available to download by pdf, so you can walk and visit some of the more renowned locations of Toronto simply with the help of your smartphone!
