4 or more can have this tour any day, any time. Email Jay at JayWalkingGuelph@gmail.com

“Guelph is known as a town famous for tales of bootlegging. Guelph had it’s share of illegal liquor production, Guelph bootleggers tossed into the Welland Canal with cement boots, revenge killings, and jilted lovers tossing themselves out of hotel windows. In addition to those stories there are some great stories of attempted murder, infidelity, flaming Courtesans (as in literally on fire), and other amazing true tales.” says Jay.

All true. All Astounding.
