The Artisans Tour

Fire is the theme of this tour

Follow your certified City-Guide and stroll through Goose Village, a neighbourhood that has practically disappeared. Visit a glass blowing studio, a blacksmith's workshop and a whisky distillery to learn about the process involved at each place.  Understand how they have an important link to the spirit of the neighbourhood.  This part of town was once a welcoming haven for immigrants, then demolished to make way for so-called modernism.  So rich in history and full of potential, see how the neighbourhood has kept up old traditions and how passionate artisans have adapted to today's world.  End the three-hour tour with a delicious whisky tasting and a new take on Montréal.
