This not only offers a unique look into the history of Canadian Club, but also a great sampling opportunity of their finest liquors! This is also a great venue for outstanding photo opportunity moments as well as time spent at a reasonable cost! Check it out!!! (Minimal cost of $5 to $10 entrance to tour of building at the site)

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was very informed and even had a great sense of humour. I wanted to tell him how much we learned in the tour but he was gone very quickly after the tasting. I found the architecture just beautiful and one wonders whether there are artisans like this to-day. To-day we actually bought a... More

A tour for everyone! My sons enjoyed hearing about the bootlegger lore of prohibition days... How the Purple Gang ran Detroit and how Al Capone wouldn't dare enter the city, coming only as close as Windsor to buy his whisky.

The tour was very interesting with its history of the area. The building is quite beautiful and every stop had an interesting story to tell. The rye tasting was good and gave you a new look at the differences in the drink. My only disappointment was that we didn't get to go outside to the gardens.

This tour was great! Didn't realize how involved this area/Canadian Club was in prohibition. You learn ALL about that on this tour, and it's really neat. The grounds are gorgeous, it's right on the water and steeped in history. The art gallery is AMAZING - they have SIX original Group of Seven pieces! A must-see if you're a (Canadian) art... More

My Dad and I took the Hiram Walker tour at the centre! We loved it! We are both big fans of local history, and really enjoyed the 1.5 hour tour. The architecture was beautiful, and we learned a lot of new information. There was a rye tasting at the end as well. The one complaint would be that the tour... More

I had never tasted whiskey before. Our guide told us everything about the Walker family history as we toured the beautiful mansion. We then had the opportunity to try rye and maple whiskey. Both products were interesting.

Fabulous hour long tour of Hiram Walkers building. The history surrounding Canadian Club Whiskey and the maker and manufacturing of the product was quite interesting. The building itself is lovely and so well preserved. Listening to the exploits of the gangsters during prohibition was enthralling . Very captivating tour. .

One of the best kept secrets for hosting special occasions. The historic building and grounds are breathtaking, as is its location on the riverfront. Catered meals and close parking are added bonuses.
