Winnipeg Trolley Company
The Best First Thing to do in Winnipeg!
For over six thousand years, people have been living at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers. Hop aboard the Winnipeg Trolley Company’s Heart of a Nation City Tour, and we guarantee you will never see this community–today called Winnipeg–in the same way again!
For 90 minutes, our knowledgeable guide will help your group experience the most fascinating sights and stories the River City has to offer, on Winnipeg’s best city tour. Your group will learn why Manitoba’s capital was once called the ‘wickedest city in Canada’, how a local team became the first Olympic hockey champions, Winnipeg’s shocking connection to the world’s most famous spy–James Bond–and much, much more. Aboard a charming trolley designed to resemble an original 1920s Winnipeg Streetcar, guests will visit the St. Boniface French Quarter; the Exchange District National Historic Site of Canada, a popular filming location for a number of major motion pictures; trendy Osborne Village–voted Canada’s greatest neighbourhood in 2012–and Corydon Avenue; and the grand 400-acre Assiniboine Park. They will marvel at the world’s only Human Rights Museum, a 16th-century Venetian merchant’s palace, the stately mansions of Wellington Crescent, and one of Canada’s most mysterious architectural wonders: the Manitoba Legislature. Voted the #1 Activity in Winnipeg on tripadvisor.com, the Heart of a Nation City Tour is sure to help your group discover what makes the city at the heart of the country so special!
The Winnipeg Trolley Company also offers customized tours and general charter rentals for all your transportation and tour needs! With all the amenities of a modern transit vehicle, including heating, air-conditioning, and a full audio system, our 32-passenger orange and cream trolley allows your guests to travel in style and comfort. Be sure to ask about the Lord Selkirk’s Legacy Day Trip–that includes a visit to North America’s premier furtrade historic site, Lower Fort Garry; afternoon tea at the Maple Grove Tea Room, named one of Canada’s Best Afternoon Teas by Canadian Living Magazine; and a guided tour through the breathtaking River Road Provincial Heritage Park.
