Excellent tour, the tour guide was very informative, friendly, and engaging with the audience. Loved the places we went to in old montreal. Would be nice if there was a break at a coffee shop sometime in the middle to take a rest and get a chance to talk to the other people in the tour. Otherwise it was excellent
Our tour guide was so...

Élise was such a delight! Knowledgable, warm, and cheerful tour guide, ready to share her love for Montréal with us. The tour was great way to see the old town with insider-knowledge and interesting architectural stops. We loved all of the recommendations she provided and her playful approach to history and storytelling.
Lovely morning tour of Montreal

Lesley was lovely even in a pretty cold day in Montreal! We got such a nice walking tour of the old part of the city and it was great to chat with her afterwards about all the fun stuff you can do in the rest of the city. Highly recommend!
Highly recommended

We very much enjoyed our tour with Martin. He showed us many areas of Old Montreal that we would never have known about, as well as a great overview of the history. Several stops indoors allowed us to warm up a bit, as it was very cold that day. The tour allowed us to feel more at home in Old Montreal and to know the best places to go. Highly recommend this as a way to get to know the area, the history, and all it has to offer. Tip - don't miss going to the bakery downstairs under Bonsecours Market (the tour ends at the market.).
