We Have a Passion for Tourism & Meeting New People
Winnipeg’s tourism scene has undergone an evolution in recent years. The addition of world-class museums, trendy restaurants, and a revitalized historic district, has made it a must-see destination. But we know it can be hard to identify the best-of-the-best — that’s where we come in.
Black Lab Tours was born out of a desire to deliver bespoke tours to those who are looking for an elevated experience.
Our goal is to provide our guests with unique experiences that inspire them and bring them together over moving stories, local food, and drink. These engaging activities create memorable experiences you can look back on and share with your friends and family.

Our name was inspired by the Labrador retriever, North America’s most popular dog. Labs are friendly, kind, intelligent, reliable, and they demonstrate leadership. These are the same skills we look for in our guides!
