For our fifth TravelChatCA Twitter Party, on a day when all of Canada had their eyes on the tragic forest fires in Alberta, we did our best to change the spirits of everyone that came out. With the temperature warming up and the days getting longer, everyone was more than excited to share their summer travel plans.

Jason of Tour Guys was on hand to share his thoughts on walking tours and what makes them a great choice for anyone making travel plans to a new city or just looking to explore their own city. Through the chat, participants learned about the free tours that Jason runs with Tour Guys in Toronto and Vancouver as well as the bacon, graffiti, and beer tours of Toronto Urban Adventures.

Summer is in the Air

It’s safe to say that Canadians know how to travel.  As we asked questions about what everyone was going to be up to this summer, it was quite apparent that most of us had plans. Whether it’s local travel or going far and wide, we were inspired all night long.  For those that came in with no specific plans for the summer, they sure came out of the chat with a ton of ideas.

Big Buzz Words of the Twitter Party


Excitement is an understatement when it comes to summer travel with some of the top words used being summer, tour, fun, and sun.

A big Thank You goes to our prize sponsor for the month, Tour Guys and Urban Adventures Toronto.  Make sure you follow them on @Toronto_TourGuy, @Toronto_UA on Twitter.
