The Cdn Club Brand Centre tour which runs several times a day offers a really interesting perspective on the Windsor-Detroit area from the early 1900s through prohibition. Very cool to site in the basement parlour where they would host Al Capone in the 1930s. The tour guides are very informative and personable which makes the tour interesting to follow through...

A 90 minute tour of this facility is well worth it.Original fireplaces and furniture from the early days,and valuable paintings on the walls,gives one a taste of how the other half lived 100 years ago.A free taste of CC in the basement is a treat to round off the tour.

I loved this place! So much history and the art collection was incredible. Group of 7 paintings, a secret room where Al Capone did Prohibition deals...incredible. The architecture of this building alone is worth the visit.

This was my first time here. Being a history buff this was right up my alley. I found the tour guide to be very informative and knowledgeable. The craftsmanship in this building was absolutely stunning. I found the Speakeasy to be my favorite room. The view from the gardens are simply amazing!

Great view on the river. Heard some good stories about the family and their history during prohibition. Good way to spend an hour and get a couple of shots at the end. Glad we came for a visit to the "ghost house"

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.
