Tour Highlights

Bonnycastle Park

The fact that Richard Bonnycastle had a park named after him, went to Oxford University, was a world champion hockey star, then joined the Hudson’s Bay Company and for a decade went back and forth across the Arctic, aren’t even the coolest things about him. Hands down the best thing about Richard Bonnycastle, which is absolutely well-known, is that he had a really fun naughty side.

Hotel Fort Garry

If you want to have a ghostly experience, the single best place in Winnipeg to make an attempt is Room 202 of the building directly in front of you: The Fort Garry Hotel. Room 202 may well be the most haunted hotel room in the country and we dive deep into all the gory details.

VJ’s Drive In

VJs is one of Winnipeg’s most famous 1950s-style burger joints. What makes Winnipeg burgers stand out is that many of these restaurants were founded by Greek immigrants, who famously slathered meaty pasta sauce on top of their burgers. Each shop chose their own name for the sauce-covered burgers, so if you see a Big Boy or a Fat Boy on the menu, grab some extra napkins because it’ll be a saucy one.

The Manitoba Club

Winnipeg became a city in 1873, but for a few years the government didn’t have a fire department—they’d just borrow a fire truck from the Hudson’s Bay Company whenever there was a fire in the city. What could go wrong, right? When you hear this story, you won’t even believe it!
