About 🔎

Hello everyone! I am Erica, I'm a local Toronto guide, history, and story-telling enthusiast! Today I will be taking your through a stroll of a quaint little railway town known as Sharbot Lake. My family, known as the (ROMAN-UK) family have owned property in this town for more than 3 generations. My grandmother would tell us stories of her growing up on the islands and playing on the shores of the lake with her "island pals". This tour is special to me becuase of the family-connection. The tour will last about 1hr, not including breaks or visits that you can do on your own. Our personal recommendation: The iced maple-sweetened oatmilk lattes from The Cardinal Cafe (first stop on the tour, bathrooms if needed). **What is Around?** Around is an online platform that lets you take interactive walking tours without downloading any app. Each tour is created by a local expert who prepared an itinerary and audio content. An internet connection is required to ensure a smooth experience.
