Tours offer slim picking for the wheelchair traveller. Walking tours may provide another option. Walkto.ca advertises that two of its tours, Nutshell and Toronto the Green, are “fully wheelchair accessible.” In addition, this City Sightseeing Tour Company has at least one accessible bus so making arrangements ahead of time is necessary.
Heritage Toronto Walks feature historic themed join-in walks around Toronto. Some can be completed in a wheelchair. While not specifically advertised as accessible, there are some other walking tour options to consider. The award winning ROMwalks offer over 40 walks through Toronto neighbourhoods of special architectural and historic interest. In addition, Toronto Greeters offers free visits to Toronto’s vibrant neighbourhoods and themed districts. Please confirm accessibility for any tour that interests you.
If they were accessible, the double-decker hop-on-hop-off trolleys that offer three day passes and stop at various tourist destinations would be an ideal solution. Give them a call or drop them a line, and ask them when they will be accessible. They need to realize there is a demand for this service and get their act in gear. Here is how to contact them:
