Born to Travel 2020

With the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic, our ability to explore what’s beyond the horizon has been greatly impacted.

Whether it is out our front door or around the world, it is in our nature to want to see and learn about other peoples and cultures.

We were born to travel!

While we may be experiencing a temporary setback, our spirit will not be broken!

In 1988, Temple and Temple Tours (TNT) was the first travel company to specialize in local activities and weekend travel for international students in Toronto, Canada.

Since then, we have been creating positive memories that will last a lifetime for almost a million students!

We continue to lead with our knowledge, experience, positive energy and innovation.

There will be three stages to the rebirth of travel. All will require proper safety precautions – smaller groups, physical distancing, masks, and hand-hygiene.

  1. Local Travel – Once again, as in the beginning, we are starting with smaller in-city activities.
    Our “Living Like A Local” and “Get On The Bus” programs are first steps in satisfying a pent-up demand to see new places and meet new people! Take one of our many walking tours of our hometown to see and support the neighbourhoods! Go on a free, fun and interactive virtual tour before you go on the real tour!
  2. One-Day Trips – Next will be one-day bus tours. See the natural beauty of Niagara Falls, Algonquin Park, or Prince Edward County – Sandbanks Beach.
    Buses are running at half-capacity with each client having two seats on the bus and these trips all have a large component of time outdoors. We do not include meals but, rather, encourage our clients to bring a lunch to ensure an added level of safety.
  3. Overnight Trips – We are not there yet but, when we are, safety will be our number one priority.

COVID-19 UPDATE (April 2020)

As per the order by the government of the Province of Ontario, our offices and all offices of non-essential services are currently closed until April 23rd and this may be extended.

We have been planning tours for international student groups since 1988. We have seen a lot of changes and faced a lot of challenges since that time. Safety has always remained one of our key ingredients to every successful tour. Our priority has always been the safety and well-being of our travellers and our staff.

The situation with the Covid-19 virus spread is changing on a daily basis and we take this very seriously and are watching the news constantly and monitoring the WHO (World Health Organization) and PHAC (Public Health Agency of Canada) websites for any new developments and updates.

While it is important to be wise and vigilant, it is equally important to not panic.

This is a world-wide pandemic and neither racism nor xenophobia will be promoted nor tolerated.


Canada is advising all travellers to avoid non-essential travel.


  • The elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions (diabetes, respiratory...) are the most susceptible to the virus.
  • For the general public, symptoms include fever and coughing.
  • A very high rate of those in the general public who catch this virus will have a full recovery.


  • For those who have symptoms we recommend that they report to an assessment centre in Toronto.
  • If you are diagnosed with the virus it is important to subject yourself to self-isolation for at least 14 days.
  • It is recommended that you wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds and that this is done frequently.
  • Using hand-sanitizer is also recommended.When coughing or sneezing please cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or into your arm.
  • Carrying sanitizing wipes to wipe down common areas of use is helpful.
  • Some people are using masks and gloves to limit their risk of catching the virus.
  • Avoiding large crowds and keeping a distance of about 2 metres of personal space is recommended. Physical distancing is being enforced throughout Toronto. You may not be within about 2 metres of another person who does not live at the same address.
  • People are asked to STAY AT HOME.
  • When greeting somebody, you should not kiss or shake hands – avoiding contact is the best advice.
  • Avoid sharing personal items that come into contact with saliva ... eating utensils, drinks, water bottles, towels ...
  • Be mindful and respectful to those around you. The hope is that by following the above measures we will “PLANK THE CURVE” and reduce the increase rate of spread.


  • All tours and activities are suspended until health authorities allow them to resume.
  • We are also referring regularly to information as provided from world and national health organizations and international travel associations (i.e. The Student Youth Travel Association – SYTA) and will continue to update our Plan as further information becomes available.


Full refunds are being offered for those who purchased trips that departed from March 16th and onward.
