More About The Toonie Tours Story
Toonie Tours started in 2018 with an admiration of the accessible, informative, and community-based Free Walking Tour. Our mission statement: to discover, share, and continue the great Canadian story.
As we found out, our customers loved the Canadian stories we told; such as our local hero Terry Fox, the God-fearing pioneers who shaped the West, the rich First Nation heritage and culture, and the war-time tales honoring our vets and fallen soldiers.
Based on your amazing reviews, we invested (yes, tour guides investing) in order to deliver a stellar 2020 – as it was projected to be the biggest tourism year in Canada yet. Our investments went toward items such as researching and opening a new branch in Victoria, developing 5 exciting tours for kids and schools (STEM tours at the Gastown steam clock!), and starting up a Training Academy to ensure that we had fantastic and invested guides ready to lead our amazing customers.
Needless to say, the COVID-19 health restrictions that came in March 2020 slowed us down big time. We took the summer to regroup and develop the online products we have for you today – our Free Virtual Tour of the Rockies and our great Canadian Merch (Designed in Canada, Made in America) !
As tour guides, tips are how we make our income and is how we are able to discover, share, and continue the great Canadian story.
Please consider contributing to our cause. We thank you graciously for your generosity.
