Què farem?

On this tour of Montreal's downtown, we will explore what used to be the Red Light’s district. I'm inviting you to revisit the naughty part of our city’s history. We will look into the crimes scene and the sex work of Montreal from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. The short itinerary will make us pass thru the Chinatown and the entertainment’s district of Montreal, mainly on St-Laurent street and Ste-Catherine street. We will discuss about the impact of the prohibition on our city that led Montreal to be known as the Sin City of the North or the Paris of North America. Among different adult subjects, we will discuss about the drug trade, the gambling industry, sex work, brothel activities and the famous criminals of Montreal. We will also talk about the different morality squads that fought crimes and corruptions that led to the late closing of the Red Light district. We will also observe the transformation that occurred in the entertainment’s district, a still vibrant part of our beloved city.
Other things to note
We will discuss about the criminality and the sex work that happened in at the beginning of the 20th century . Those subjects might not be suitable for people under the age of 16 years old.

As a born and raised Montrealer and I'm deeply passionate about my home town. I work in the tourist industry since 2009, I'm a tour director since 2010 and now a certified Montréal tour guide since 2017. On top of my tourism studies, I studied cinema, education, politics and I have a bachelor degree in communication. Since I love to travel myself and I have multiple experiences overseas, I try as hard as I can to recreate this backpacker meeting experiences in my tours.

We had such a fun time on this tour! Neither of us had ever been on a tour before, so we were quite excited to see what it was all about and Nicolas did not disappoint. It was a very interesting topic to learn about and his knowledgeable & passion made the experience even better. Nicolas knows his stuff and he's great at what he does. Even though the tour ran longer than expected, we were really disappointed it was over. Thank you so much for the experience Nicolas!! We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Montreal.

Super fun topic to learn about when it's not a widely publicized topic! He did a really thoughtful job of laying out the storytelling as you walked around the city.

I had a great time on the tour. The history of Montreal's red light distinct is something I was interested in, and Nicolas did a great job of structuring that history and relating it to what's current
