The Montréal Burlesque Walking Tour promises to spice up the Quartier des spectacles (Montréal's entertainment district) by taking you back to an era when Montréal was known internationally as "Sin City" and "The Paris of North America".

Led by a flamboyant burlesque queen, you will be entertained with secrets from Montréal's past while passing by old brothels, seedy hotels, historic burlesque halls, grandiose theatres and other exterior sites. While strolling through the old Red Light District after nightfall, learn all about burlesque: what it is, why it was Montréal’s most popular form of entertainment from the 1920s to the 1950s, who its most famous stars were, where they performed, how the burlesque scene died and was revived, and where to experience burlesque in Montréal today.

We try to keep group sizes around 15 people. We offer departures in English every Saturdays from June to October and every fourth Saturday of these months in French (unilingual groups). You will be automatically assigned in English. If you prefer to join the French group, please contact us at the time of booking. Tours are recommended for people aged 14 years and older.
Other things to note
Tours go rain or shine, so dress accordingly. Wear comfortable shoes. You must arrive 10 minutes before departure to check in. Gratuity left to your discretion.

I worked in tourism all my life and I cultivate a profound passion for this industry and for Montréal. I have been working for the well renowned tour agency Guidatour for over ten years before recently becoming its new owner. Guidatour also co-produces Secret Montréal's Old Red Light District themed visits. I would be thrilled to have one of our storytellers let you discover Montréal in its heyday as a "wide open city", an era when brothels, gambling dens, booze cans and burlesque halls lined every street and corruption of every type reigned. You will be in for a burlesque treat!

Led by your storyteller, you will stroll through the streets of the entertainment district. Starting from the Midway Tavern and ending in front of the legendary Café Cléopatre, the 90-minute activity includes over 10 significant sites ranging from old brothels and seedy hotels, historic burlesque halls and grandiose theatres, and other locations where some of the most steamy and salacious history in all of Canada unfolded.

If you are interested in learning the "real" history of Montreal- where historical figures suddenly become real people- take this tour! It's fascinating to learn about the ins and outs of the red light district, and the colorful people who lived and ran the city's underground.

Velma was wonderful! She is very knowledgeable, animated, and vibrant which made the tour all the more interesting! She had lots of great stories which were rooted in the deep rich history of Cabaret and the Red Light District. I wish I had done this tour sooner!

Our hostess was theatrical and was generally engaging and fun. She had knowledge of the history of burlesque and what goes on in Montreal's red light district. Overall, I enjoyed myself and learned a bit more about the area than I would have otherwise.

Velma knows here stuff, really good tour of the area that I would not have personally seen myself. You really get to know the history of the city as well as get entertained at the same time. One of the most unique experiences I have had.

Great entertaining tour, definitely a different side of Montreal and was one that brought us to an area we most likely never wandered to. Our guide was entertaining and outgoing, had a blast!
