What you'll do

Discover the sinful side of our city, great before going out

The Montreal Gay Village comes alive at night. We will show you the entertainment district of our very, very busy queer neighbourhood. We'll give you the sex-positive low down on all the bars, cafés, drag clubs, adult venues, sex shops/theatres and saunas + our ultimate guide to all each of the gay hot spots.

**No topic is off limits on this sure-to-scandalize night time wander through the crowds. 18+ and open minds only please.**

This is a great way to orient yourself to nighttime in one of North America's largest LGBTQ villages and maybe even meet some folks before choosing where to spend the night.

Where you'll be

One of Montreal's most best known neighbourhoods our Gay Village is one of the largest in North America. The neighbourhood is one of the most fun and quirky areas of Montreal. Decked out in bright colours and rainbow everything, it can be hard to tell which bar, club or sauna you might want to indulge in ... this is the experience to help sort all that out!

We had a wonderful time! You could really tell that Ian knew what he was talking about, and that he had the education to back it up. I really liked the historical part of the tour. All in all, it was great! Definite recommend
