With our walking tours, you’ll skip the mundane historical tours and discover the city through a local’s eyes. Experience a tour that will transform the way you travel to make it as much about the people you meet, as it is the places you see. Our local guides (Lokafyers) are passionate about their city and eager to share their knowledge and perspective. Since Lokafyers are not professional guides and tour occasionally, they provide an experience that’s authentic and personal, like a friend showing you around their city. By the end of the tour, you'll feel comfortable navigating the city and confident that you have all the information you need to make the most of your stay.

Private tour of Old Montreal and Old Port
Psycads, 13-11-2022
This tour was exactly what we were looking for.
In 2 hours our guide, Carlos gave us a wonderful overview of these areas of the city. As we walked he pointed out popular sights and the little known ones.
He had a wealth of knowledge regarding the city’s history with dates and antidotes. We learned so much! Thank you, Carlos.
The perfect way to see the city

This was the first tour of this type I've ever taken part in and we really enjoyed the personalized and customized nature of it. It's really one of the first tours we've taken in over two decades of traveling in which we felt we were in control of the program and itinerary. This made the experience a lot more fulfilling.
A Must Do

I enjoyed having a private tour so we could go at a pace that wasn’t too fast for my kids. Highly recommend this!
Carlos was terrific....

Carlos was terrific. Great tour of the city. We saw all the import sites. He also recommended a great liver performance/dinner venue. Had a great time.
Our guide was 45 minutes...

Our guide was 45 minutes late. She did text me and communicated regularly but we ended up with much less time. We made the best of it. She was sweet but hard to hear and wasn’t all that chatty. The company did refund half of what we paid which was the right thing to do and they did with no issues whatsoever. Good customer service!
