Very knowledgeable tour guide. Dan knows a lot and is very personable. Great way to cover a lot of ground while running (compared with a walking tour) but get a way better feel for the town (compared with sitting in a vehicle). Highly recommend.

Fantastic 5k through Christie pit, Trinity bellwood, and garrison creek learning about the city's history. Dan has a fund of knowledge and I learn something new about Toronto at every run I have done with him.

It was really fun running a 5 km guided run and tour with Dan Grant today! We met up as a large group and ran by interesting spots including Trinity Bellwoods, before getting a pint at Muskoka Brewery on Bloor St W.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
