What we're about

This group is for all solo travellers living or visiting Toronto who want to meet new friends and travel around Ontario. We are organizing short trips from Toronto and monthly Meetups at Toronto's restaurants and bars. Don't be shy and join one of our weekend trips if you don't know anyone in the group we can guarantee you that after the trip you will get at least one new friend to hang out with in Toronto (well at least we will try :) We organize one day trips and over night tours such as dog sledding, skiing, whale watching, moose watching, rafting, etc. Most of our tours are active and outdoor but once in a while we organize hotel stay, foodie, wine tasting or craft beer tours. We prefer to travel in small groups!

We will also post deals for international tours and all inclusive packages. These tours are not guided but it will give you a chance to find somebody who would like to join you for a vacation trip if you don't have anyone to go with or you just want to meet new people. You can discuss and post comments on Meetup Event.

This group is operated by Travelling Chicken and Centre Holidays travel agencies.
