Please note: Guelph Arts Council's Historical Walking Tours are operating with COVID-19 precautions. All participants must wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth and maintain physical distancing throughout the tour. All tours offered have been condensed to 60 - 90 minutes. Participants who arrive without a face covering will be asked not to participate and will receive a refund through the GAC office. Guides will not handle cash. Tour booklets will be available at the GAC office only. Tours are restricted to a maximum of 6 prepaid and pre-registered participants. Tours with less than two registrations by the previous Friday at 4 pm will be cancelled.

Starting point: 25 Waterloo Ave, corner of Dublin Street. (Please use street parking, not 25 Waterloo private lot.)

Tour description: This tour encircles the original Market Square area of almost twenty-four acres laid out by John Galt in 1827. Serving as the focal point for Guelph's early social and business life, the area also contains the sites of many of Guelph's first buildings.

Rain or shine (extreme weather excepted).
