Local tour company, Secret Montreal, is giving guests a chance to learn about the city’s indecent past.
Who knows, you might even see a ghost.
The tour is led by a professional actor and storyteller and the path leads to tales about the dark and lewd history of Montreal’s old Red Light District. Many of the sites are even said to be haunted.
The tour takes place at what is currently known as the Quartier des Spectacles, known for its festivals and entertainment. But Secret Montreal takes its guests on a historical journey of another form of entertainment.
This one-of-a-kind attraction gives locals and tourists the chance to learn more about the prohibition era when corruption prevailed and Montreal was at its peak as an “open city.”
If you’ve ever wanted to know more about our city’s history with gambling, burlesque, and drinking, coupled with the prospect of a few ghosts, now’s your chance.
The tours start at the Midway Tavern on Saint-Laurent and continues around the Quartier des Spectacles. Reservations must be made in advance.
