Kensington Market, through the eyes of a Bohemian Spirit Kensington Market is one of the liveliest historical neighbourhoods in Toronto, with its quaint Victorian buildings and narrow streets and alleyways. A neighbourhood community, developed by Jewish Immigrants during the 1920s, who set up businesses and a synagogue. Today the Market is a rich mosaic of multicultural business run by immigrants from Europe, the Caribbean, Middle East, South America, and Asia.

I am the founder of Toronto’s Hidden Gems: Tours Off The Beaten Path. Holding over 35 years of customer relations experience, I'm here to provide my personal brand of service with Soul. Being an immigrant I believe that one of the key components to living a fulfilling life is to venture outside of one's familiar cultural surroundings. Being open to learning, experiencing and appreciating what other cultures have to offer, helped me to recognize the similarities we all share and have in common. I value those areas of the city that have retained both a rich historical and cultural narratives. By creating personalized tours, I want to share the secrets of these part city outside the familiar tourist bubble, by catering tours to those interested in taking a journey off the beaten path.
