The tours were great. Much more than we expected. The tour guides were excellent, personable and very knowledgeable. A must for anyone visiting Montreal.

Reviewed by: Karen C, August 2014

This was a great way to see Old Montreal and learn some of the very interesting history behind the buildings and other sites. The tour guides were excellent; they gave just the right amount of information and kept us moving along. We especially liked Georges, who was so charming and such a good speaker that several passers-by joined our tour and tipped him at the end!
