TRULY A WINDSOR GEM

A must see when visiting Windsor (Walkerville area). Fascinating and amazing history and architecture. You can actually sit at Hiram Walker's desk.

Amazing grounds. Great history. Can't beat the collection of paintings by the group of 7. Go back in time to prohibition era and see how smuggling was done.

Ordinary corporate tour and history. Setup ok for smaller gatherings. On expensive side for this type of establishment.

I seldom give a negative review because I know that people have different expectations. However, this tour was a disappointment. The guide was very knowledgeable and shared some interesting historical anecdotes. There were so many people in the group that it was impossible to view the artifacts in the rooms. We were only shown two rooms in the whole building.... More

This was a great historical tour, a lot of history about Walkerville and Windsor! Our tour guide was great, the tour lasts about 1 1/2 hours. You don't really get any info on the process/how they make it, but I guess that's a secret, right? :) You get to do a tasting at the end. Yes, it is straight, no... More

If you're at all interested in Windsor history, or you just like whiskey, this is a great place to go. The tour was great, the tour guide knowledgable, and the place is filled with history. Very neat to see the offices of the Walkers and the historic charm of the building. Whiskey tasting at the end was great, and it... More

After having so many people build up this tour, we went over the 2016 post Christmas holidays while visiting Windsor. It was obvious that the gal giving the tour did not have English as her first language, and while she made herself understood and did her best to answer questions a lot of her info didn't sync up. She also... More

This tour is terrible , kind of a lunch bag letdown, we followed a guide who spoke low it wasn't worth following her around. The tour consisted of visiting about 5 offices which all looked the same. Don't be fooled, there is no tour of the actual bottling operation. The whiskey tasting was fine . They really do need to... More

First time i had visited this facility. Stunning historic setting very well kept. Don't know how i could have lived here in Windsor all these years and not visited. Particularly enjoyed the historic display items which gave some background on the Walker history.
