About us

Urban Expeditions is a local travel company. We began in 2003 by offering a fun and dynamic orientation service to international students. The service was designed to help amateur travelers navigate the unique elements of the big city with efficiency and expedience.



The company was founded by educator and entrepreneur Peter Odle. His passion for exploration and learning remain at the core of each city tour and game experience.


The art direction and creative influence of Joe Dunning continues to make Urban Expeditions and Unlockthecity  relevant urban lifestyle brands. Combined with a team of seven talented facilitators, our aim is to become the best local travel company in the world, not the biggest.


Cities are the fastest growing habitats on the planet. More than 50% of the global population lives in metropolitan areas. Our city tour and game service use elements of strategic play and adventure to help enhance physical and mental health. 


Urban Expeditions is a local travel company. We bring to market private small group city tours and games that help people connect with urban culture and develop a stronger relationship with Toronto, Montreal, New York and Chicago.
