My regularly scheduled History Walks start at 10am and usually last 2.5 to sometimes 3 hours depending on group size and their pace. Tours that begin and end at or near the point of departure are noted as "Circle Tours". 

Except for my West End History Walk which has some hills, all the rest of my History Walks are relatively flat and easy to walk.  

Details on the content of my East End/Strathcona History Walk (Tour #1), the East End's Working/Wild Side History Walk (Tour #2), West End History Walk (Tour #3), Grandview Neighbourhood History Walk (Tour #4) and Mount Pleasant History Walk (Tour #5) can be found by clicking on the appropriate link above. Cost is $20 per person.
