Stories of the Exchange

This tour takes you through the stunning and historic Exchange District. As you walk through the city’s oldest neighbourhood, experience an uncensored look at the untold history of Winnipeg. From brothels to corruption, crime to sordid affairs, we temporarily suspend the friendly reputation of this prairie town. Learn the seedy, scandalous, and liquor-laced stories you were never meant to hear. 

Adult-Focused Content 

This 18+ tour explores our city’s deepest and darkest secrets in a way you won’t get anywhere else (especially at the visitor centre!). 

The Unspoken Truth 

Winnipeg’s high society life has always been shadowed by scandals, temptations, and unruly behaviour. See how alcohol, prohibition, and organized crime are an unsavoury, but essential, piece of our city’s history. 

Shocking True Stories 

Hear the incredible, real-life stories of Winnipeg’s shadowy citizens and famous criminals. Discover how their dark and often outsized personalities shaped the city we know today.

Had the opportunity to take the Winnipeg Wicked History tour. Staff were friendly and engaging. I learned a lot of the spooky history of Winnipeg and had some tasty drinks along the way. Highly recommended. ~ Grant
