Overall rating

(640 reviews)

This was such a fascinating, incredibly done tour. I learned so much about early Toronto and how central sex work and brothels were to its development. I loved how immersive and transportive the tour was, with stops on the same streets sex workers once traversed, and in front of the same buildings where brothels were once housed, all while the guide told richly detailed stories that brought these Old Torontonians and their city back to life. I also appreciated how seriously the guide took the subject, showing respect to past sex workers and acknowledging the kind of autonomy they carved out that was rare for women of their time, without whitewashing the challenges and dangers they faced.

It was incredible to take part iin a historical tour led by a practicing historian who is also very skilled at storytelling! Sex worker history in Toronto is a topic we should all know more about. It's time for these hidden histories to come to light! I would highly recommend taking this tour with LK

A terrific tour for both visitors and residents of Toronto alike, our highly knowledgeable guide introduced us to the fascinating and little-known details of the history of Toronto's sex work industry. Highly recommended!

Lots of information both written and audio throughout. Kept in great condition, awesome documentary included. A little pricy for a self-guided tour (at $40/person).

Great place for a visit, easy parking, great audio tour, clean facilities and bathroom
