+ Are Tours Wheelchair and Disabled Accessible?

Due to the outdoor setting of our Nature and Fishing Tours, and the interactive experience we provide (which may take participants off-path and require some hiking) our Nature and Fishing Tours may not be wheelchair accessible. We do spend some time on pathed routes - but we cannot guarentee this.

If you would like to book an outdoor wheelchair tour - please contact us. We would love to accommodate your unique group.

We do however provide our Workshop which is designed to meet all participants needs and also a nature focused experience.

+ Are Tours safe for children?

Yes!
Toronto Aboriginal Eco Tours has been fortunate enough to provide Tours of all kinds to many student groups in both elementary and middle school grades.

Children thrive in outdoor settings and soak up the beauty of nature while retaining the knowledge behind cultural teachings and the memory of thier outing.

Children of all ages are welcome - but must be attended by a parent, guardian or school/organizational leader during the tour in order to ensure their safety.
