About Bruce Bell Tours
NOTE: During the Pandemic all my Old Town Toronto tours will be FREE ($5 or $10 is a good minimum). Tours will be limited to 10 people and will run every Tues, Weds and Thursdays for the foreseeable future. There will be a charge for my private tours, but my group tours will be FREE! Bruce Bell Tours: So much of Toronto's history is either buried under parking lots or confined to dusty history books hidden on the top shelves of libraries or just plain forgotten. Using his wealth of knowledge and experience well known historian and author Bruce Bell is determined to look under those parking lots to see what secrets are held in Toronto's much overlooked colonial and 19th century past. Bruce also does a great food tasting tour at Toronto’s famed St Lawrence Market.

Mr. Bell gave us an understanding of Canadian government, politics, elections, and all things Canadian. Plus he was so much fun to boot! Highly recommend his tours. We were scheduled for a morning tour but Bruce contacted us to say there were lots of large tours going through the St. Lawrence Market at that time and it wouldn’t be as enjoyable. We moved our time to early afternoon and are so glad that we did! We were a group of 4 so we received all of his attention!

Bruce was the most entertaining, knowledgeable and overall interesting tour guide we've ever come across. We are so thankful that Bruce was able to accommodate our group of four - he is a true Toronto treasure. We are now armed with fascinating facts about Canada, Toronto, and the St. Lawrence Market and surrounding area. Thanks, Bruce, for the best afternoon we could have hoped to spend! Eileen, Bill, Jan and Jim

We just finished our day and this morning we had the most wonderful tour with Bruce. You could not ask for a more knowledgeable person. He was so interesting and knew so much about Toronto, it just made our day. We highly recommend him for a tour in Toronto. Great value and a very enjoyable person to listen to, talk to and learn from.

Simply the best tour guide and Toronto Historian. Bruce attends may of our client appreciation events and his stories about Toronto are simply amazing. He has a real gift. We put him in for the Order of Ontario for all the work that Bruce does quietly in the advancement of Ontario history.
