With various museums and performing-arts venues, Canada's oldest ballet company, and such picturesque architecture as Cube Stage and Union Bank Tower, it may be surprising that Winnipeg was once known as the "wickedest city in the Dominion." Exchange District Walking Tours' knowledgeable guides aren't about to let visitors and locals forget about the unsavoury things—explosions, angry mobs, executions, and lack of hand washing—that characterized Winnipeg in the not-so-distant past. During 45-minute Death & Debauchery tours, they teach guests about the city's darkest secrets.

Although it's the most popular tour, it's not the only introduction to Winnipeg's rich history. Guides also lead expeditions throughout the west side of Main Street, featuring stops at Newspaper Row and turn-of-the-century hotels, and the east side of Main Street, where visitors hear about the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike and how it shaped the labour movement in Canada. And food tours provide an opportunity to almost literally dive face-first into the city's culture.
