Heart of a Nation City Tour
“The Best First Thing to do in Winnipeg!”
“We have done tours in cities all over the world, and this is definitely one of the best.”
– Paul F. (Read more customer reviews here.)
For over six thousand years, people have been living at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers. Hop aboard our Heart of a Nation City Tour, and we guarantee you will never see this community—today called Winnipeg—in the same way again!
Visit the charming French quarter of St. Boniface and the Exchange District National Historic Site, a popular filming location for a number of major motion pictures where you find North America’s largest collection of turn-of-the-century architecture. See the Bell MTS Place hockey arena, home of the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets; and the community club where music legends The Guess Who and Neil Young got their start.
Pass through Osborne Village—voted Canada’s greatest neighbourhood in 2012—view the stately mansions on Wellington Crescent, and enjoy the grandeur of the 400-acre Assiniboine Park. Marvel at the world’s only human rights museum; a 16th-century Venetian merchant’s palace; and one of Canada’s most mysterious architectural wonders, the Manitoba Legislative Building.
For an hour and forty-five minutes, our guide will help you experience the very best sights and stories the River City has to offer on our award-winning flagship sightseeing tour. Learn why Manitoba’s capital was once called the ‘wickedest city in Canada’, how a local team became history’s first Olympic hockey champions, Winnipeg’s shocking connection to the world’s most famous spy—James Bond—and much, much more. This tour is humorous, engaging, and as ‘the best first thing to do in Winnipeg’, will help you discover what makes the city at the heart of the country so special!
