If you're at all interested in Windsor history, or you just like whiskey, this is a great place to go. The tour was great, the tour guide knowledgable, and the place is filled with history. Very neat to see the offices of the Walkers and the historic charm of the building. Whiskey tasting at the end was great, and it... More

After having so many people build up this tour, we went over the 2016 post Christmas holidays while visiting Windsor. It was obvious that the gal giving the tour did not have English as her first language, and while she made herself understood and did her best to answer questions a lot of her info didn't sync up. She also... More

This tour is terrible , kind of a lunch bag letdown, we followed a guide who spoke low it wasn't worth following her around. The tour consisted of visiting about 5 offices which all looked the same. Don't be fooled, there is no tour of the actual bottling operation. The whiskey tasting was fine . They really do need to... More

First time i had visited this facility. Stunning historic setting very well kept. Don't know how i could have lived here in Windsor all these years and not visited. Particularly enjoyed the historic display items which gave some background on the Walker history.

I was hoping it would have been more in depth and able to view the distilling process or bottling or something. Yes there was a great amount of history given during the tour, but after seeing office after office, it turned out to be real downer. Definately not something I would recommend or do over.

We have been on numerous beer, wine and spirits tours over the years. So we went to this place reluctantly as not much else was to be done in Windsor on an end of November Sunday afternoon. From the moment we saw the beautiful building form the sidewalk, we were charmed. Once in, we felt like we were in an... More

I toured the Canadian Club Center on Saturday, Nov 19 with a meetup group from the Detroit-area. All of us really enjoyed the tour which included many whiskey samplings, a lot of historic information, a discussion of how the whiskey is made, a cops and robbers game and an opportunity to purchase items from the Gift Shop. Our guide, Raoul,... More

My Fiance and i visited the Canadian Club on, Saturday, 12 November 2016. The stories and the names of the now notorious people involved in making this distillery and the areas surrounding successful and famous, made for a very interesting tour. The whiskey tasting during this tour was very good.
