Jason is an enthusiastic, friendly and engaging guy, with more than a decade of experience leading tours around Canada and the USA.
In 2009 Jason co-founded a walking tour company in Toronto and his business partner did likewise in Vancouver. In both cities it consistently rated one of the very best "things to do" in Toronto on TripAdvisor. There are more than 100 glowing reviews of his tours from visitors from around the world on Trip Advisor. He is hired often by Tourism Toronto to show VIPs and media around Toronto.
He grew up just north of Toronto, and aside from a winter in the Rocky Mountains, a year teaching English in Japan, and six months working with the Canadian Forces in Afghanistan, (and hundreds of days traveling to other destinations) Jason has spent most of his adult life living in the heart of Canada's largest and most multi-cultural city!
Jason is a natural teacher and storyteller, but is also a stand-up comedian and improv comic, making his tours not only educational but a lot of fun too!

SUPERIOR Excursion! The highlight of my Toronto visit was my sister and I excursion with Jason K. What a knowledgeable and thorough tour. We appreciated Jason's ability to detail the hidden views of the street artist, history of the graffiti and culture of the people of Toronto. The tour was exciting as Jason delve facts and pointed out details about each mural. Jason ROCKS and this was the best tour ever. Jan and Joy Johnson One Million Star Rating
