While staying at Caesars Windsor Casino/Hotel, we visited and thoroughly enjoyed the nearby Hiram Walker/Canadian Club tour. From Caesars, it is only about two miles east along the riverfront. I think you could walk it, but we took a cab, which only cost about eight dollars plus tip. You don't go into the plant. The tour is limited to Hiram... More

This was an exciting tour with history not only of Hiram Walker but also of early Windsor which at one time was called North Detroit. It encompass the life and ability of this man to have developed mass wealth, land and a business that still thrives today.

We also learned about the Walker family and their philanthropy. As a bonus we were also shown so great paintings by the group of seven. Excellent tour... More

Was going to the casino for a concert. Got into town early and thought I would like to do a tour. Decided on a whiskey tour. It was fantastic. Not only could go into each room of the house you were allowed to sit on the furniture and learn all about Hiram walker. And at the end of the tour... More

The tour guide talked so quickly that it was hard to understand what he was saying. Perhaps this is unfair but I expected this experience to be somewhat like wine tasting tours I've been on.But the time spent tasting was brief and you could not talk with the group about the whiskey you were tasting since the tour guide basically...

Definitely interesting if you like to learn. Great history behind this building. The tour guide did say that the place is haunted. Also there is a tasting at the end of the tour. Great experience!

We took the tour on a Sunday afternoon. Can't beat $12 to waste a couple hours and learn the history of the city/Hiram Walker family. 2 shots at the end are an added bonus.
