Event description

Description

Learn the secrets of Montreal's "Hidden History" while exploring some of the city's famous districts, including McGill University, Downtown, and the Underground City. Created by Donovan King, the "King of Montreal's Hidden History", this classic walking tour delivers a full overview of Montreal, while delving into the city's hidden, underground and controversial sites and topics.

Clients will delve deep into the island's past, and be exposed to Indigenous history as taught by Kanien'kehá:ka Elders. Guests will also learn the locations of tens of thousands of bodies buried throughout Downtown Montreal, discover hidden surprises lurking in unknown places, hear deranged ghost stories, legends and unthinkable crimes, plus will enter the vast Underground City. Scandals that continue to rock the city will be explored, including the MKULTRA brainwashing experiments, an off-colour tourism industry, and growing demands to remove offensive colonial statues in the Age of Truth and Reconciliation.

Led by Donovan King or another professional actor and storyteller, the Hidden Histories of Montreal Walking Tour offers a postcolonial twist that is sure to please tourists seeking out the secrets of the city, fans of true crime and ghost stories, urban history buffs, intellectuals and anyone interested in Truth and Reconciliation initiatives in Montreal's antiquated tourism industry.

Clients will also be invited to add their voice help update Montreal's tourism industry to make it more inclusive of Indigenous voices and perspectives, and more diverse by including marginalized communities in the tour guiding milieu.
