What people are saying about Winnipeg

Excellent guide named after Ben. He made the experience very interesting with his knowledge, his anecdotes and his dynamism. I recommend this activity without hesitation. We also liked the driver!!! Only negative point, the comfort of the benches in the bus and its width. Two hours on this kind of wooden bench is really not pleasant.

Awesome driver and tour guide! For growing up in Manitoba I still learnt and saw new things

Super fun thing to do trying to be a tourist in your own city. Would recommend 10/10

Engaging guide. Informative and interesting tour. Great way to explore the city.

We would highly recommend both for people who live in or outside Winnipeg
