New Website Coming Soon!

Happy New Year everyone!

Steve and Jason have been working with a website designer to get a simpler, cleaner and more useful website developed. The new site should be ready to go in the next few days, and we’re pretty excited. If you would like to have a look at it and give us some feedback, you can see it parked at for the time being. We’re pretty excited about getting a better site and being better able to serve our visitors!

Toronto Ghost Tours 2010 – Success!

Thanks to everyone who came out for our public Toronto Ghost Tours over the past 7 weeks. There were more than 1100 of you, and everyone helped make this the best year yet for our ghost tours!

We WILL be doing a ghost tour again next year, but plan to change things up so it will be fresh and new and even more awesome. It will likely be an entirely new tour! There are lots of stories out there, and we want to share them with you. And scare you while we’re at it.

The BEST way to keep in touch with us is through Facebook. Join us, become a Facebook fan of ours and we’ll let you know when we’ve got something cooking. We regularly offer “free samples” of new tours as we develop them in order to get feedback.

Speaking of feedback, if you have taken one of our ghost tours, we would love to know what you think. Leave your feedback here!

Once we hear back from people we will start work on our tour for next year!

Thanks and see you again soon!

Tour Guys is Taking Off!

The Vancouver Sun did a nice article on us and we’re really happy with how things went this summer. This was our second summer in action and things are really starting to move for us both in Vancouver and Toronto.

We’ve been getting a lot of attention lately due to our listing in TripAdvisor, one of the most well-used and trusted travel websites.

Right now Tour Guys Toronto is the #1 rated attraction in Toronto!

And Tour Guys Vancouver is the #2 rated attraction in Vancouver!

We’re really grateful for the kind words and compliments we’re received. It feels good waking up in the morning knowing that you love doing what you do, and people are loving it right back!

Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day 2010

In recognition of Canada Day, the Tour Guys have assembled some fun/quirky/interesting facts about Canada:

  • During the vote to re-name the eastern part of the Northwest Territories (now known as Nunavut), the name “Bob” came in 3rd place
  • Flin Flon Manitoba’s claim to fame was in 2000 when they were named the “Marijuana Growing Capital of Canada”
  • Who else but a Canadian would have invented fish sticks? In 1929 marine scientist Archibald Huntsman invented “Ice Fillets,” the first frozen food
  • The character of James Bond is based on William Stephenson, a real-life spy from Winnipeg
  • 80% of Canadians are currently happy with their hair
  • Ontario’s first license plates were made of leather
  • Cheech and Chong formed their comedy act in Vancouver (a.k.a. Vansterdam)
  • It is illegal to kill a Sasquatch in British Columbia
  • In Canada, it’s illegal for margarine to be the same colour as butter
  • There are more donut shops per capita in Canada than in any other country (thanks Timmy!)
  • There are no skunks in Newfoundland, and no rats in Alberta (except in their legislature)
  • The USA has invaded Canada twice—in 1775 and 1812—both times to no avail. They stopped trying after we burnt down their White House.
  • Canada holds the record for the most gold medals ever won at the Winter Olympics, which took place this year in Vancouver!
