Pierre did a great job guiding our tour of Old Montreal and we highly recommend it. He has excellent knowledge of the area.

East tour more interesting than West, but both guides were excellent. We learned a great deal about the history of the city.

Martine was our guide and try as he might he was incapable of disguising his love of Montreal and it's history. We did the "East" tour yesterday and he energized the history of the development of Mount Royal. We wanted to do the "West" tomorrow but they close as of today for the season. Highly recommend, I'm sure all their guides are good but Martine was great!

Elise our tour guide was knowledge and very passionate about her city and the overall architecture and subject matter. Her pride in the city and here effort to have us have a great experience was evident. we took the East -west tour tour to get acclimated on our first day and this was the perfect choice. we received history and cultural context and good suggestions for food and shopping. The walking is easy and the spots for photos and to get background information on the buildings enriched the experience. Of course Cathedral of Notre Dame is the key overall Highlight so would not recommend booking the tour on Sunday unless you plan to attend Mass.

Any tour begins with the quality of the guide and ours was the BEST! Set a reasonable pace for her group of 18 and made sure we could all hear. Was extremely knowledgeable with not only facts but historical perspectives.

My wife and I loved our tour of Old Montreal! It's the perfect way to start some time in the area. Your guide will point out some important points of interest that you've heard of, but he/she will also point out quite a few things that you'd normally walk right by without looking twice. Also, it's the best way to get comfortable walking around the city with some basic knowledge of where you're going. I'm spacing on our guide's name but it was something like Guillem (sp?)? I should remember because he was AMAZING. The perfect amount of friendly, educational, entertaining. It was a great time!

Great, quick orientation to explore Old Town on your own. Recommend for first time visitors. Our guide Lesley was great!

Guide was very nice. Would have liked to spend less time in banks. More time on waterfront and streets where there are shops and restaurants.

Caroline was really good and she knew her stuff. We have been to many walking tours, but this was one of the best we had. We took both east and west tours, and both were great. But we liked the east tour better!!

Excellent. We did both East and West Old Montreal in old Montreal. WE loved the guide. He was a retired engineer, but obviously loved doing tours. He liked people and he knew so much about Montreal and the history of Canada. We heard the history and saw the architecture of various groups and styles. We learned what has happened since the founding of the city. We also learned of other places to visit in Canada.

We had a great time with both parts of this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer any questions the group had. Great tour and definitely worth the price.

Our guide Carole took our group of about 20 on a great walking tour of old town Montreal. She was informative, made sure everyone could hear her and kept the group together. Her pace was perfect, not too fast and not too slow. We had one lady being pushed in a wheelchair and she kept up fine. The tour lasted about 90 minutes and Carole made herself available afterwards for questions. Unfortunately the couple with the wheelchair took a spill toward the end of the tour and he hurt his wrist. Carole took care of the situation and called the paramedics for him and stayed with them until help arrived.

Fantastic tour and our guide- Angelina , was the best guide I have ever had. We were 13 in our group. She covered all the sites. She was so knowledgeable and easy to understand. Her suggestions for additional areas to explore or cafes to visit were spot on. Excellent day. I feel I really got to know and love Montreal.

Lesley was a great tour guide , lots but not too much information, relaxed and casual, we are on holiday after all, adapted for size of group and added bits on when we were smaller. Thanks

My husband, grandson and I recently did this walking tour. Our tour guide "Andre" was excellent. The tour was enjoyable and informative. Visiting the Notre-Dame Basilica was wonderful. Your ticket allowed you to return to the Notre-Dame Basilica after the tour if you wished... which we did and was able to spend some quite time there.
