Travelling Chicken was founded by a tour guide Lenka, a solo traveler and a newcomer to Canada, who just wanted to travel and explore the beauty of Ontario. Lenka came to Toronto in June 2011, where she had originally planned to stay for 6 months, but those months quickly turned into years.
Our first tour was to Blue Mountain Resort. The idea was to put solo travelers together and make new friends. The first trip was a beaming success, so we’ve decided to book another cottage tour and turn it into a group excursion.
We currently offer day and multi-day group tours for solo travelers, small groups, families, visitors, and we also offer private tour packages for businesses, families or group of friends.
Meet our enthusiastic Travelling Chikcne tour guides: Lenka from Czech Republic, Mike from Canada, Cris from Mexico, Brian from Philippines, Joe from Canada and Ramiro from Mexico.
And why do we call ourselves Travelling Chicken? You will just have to join one of our tours to find out the story behind such a fun name….:)
I’ve started Travelling Chicken as a newcomer to Canada. I wanted to travel with friends around Ontario. I quickly realize that most of my friends were leaving back home and I was curious to see what Ontario had to offer. With the slogan such as “yours to discover” my interest grew rapidly. Sadly, I had no companion to travel with as they all left back to their countries but than a lightbulb went off. I’ve decided to meet new people and organize a group tour to Blue Mountain through Meetup. It turned up to be one of the best trips I have ever gone on. Today, I get to travel around Ontario and show newcomers the beauty of this province. Who knew this experience would turn into something I am so passionate about….”
If you are looking for Spanish speaking tour guide, Cris is the one who will lead the tour. She has joined one of the Travelling Chicken’s tour just one week after she arrived to Toronto from Baja California Sur in Mexico. She has joined lot of tours since than and she became our Travelling Chicken Tour Guide for Spanish but also English speaking groups.
You can practise your Spanish, chat about Mexican food and of course about the most popular travel destinations in Mexico!
