It was the perfect way to start our family experience in Montreal. Martin, our guide, showed us around Old Montreal and all its sights, answering questions about history, architecture, culture, and the best food! It was the first time we tried a tour where the kids (17, 14, 9) were not only there but involved, and for the rest of our visit to Montreal, they related to what we had heard from our guide about the city. Perfect, even if English is not your first language!

Claudine was super friendly, knowledgeable, and a wonderful tour guide. We toured with a 12 year old and 6 year old and she made it interesting and accessible for all of us. It was great to see spots we would have walked right by, building an understanding of the geography, history, architecture, and culture of this very cool place. She took us into hidden nooks, a special garden, and up to a rooftop terrace to view the city. My kids absolutely loved this tour and thought it was the highlight of our trip.

Hello, Thanks so much for leaving a review. We will be sure to let Claudine know she was appreciated. It's not always easy to cater to adults AND 6-year-olds AND 12-year-olds, but we are happy to hear everyone found it to be a fun activity! All the best and see you in Montréal again soon,

We really loved Nicholas' candor and conversation. It was really nice since it just us (me, wife, 2 sons). He showed us some beautiful buildings, statues and art that we definitely would have missed! He was also filled with knowledge of Montreal's history as well as the creation of Quebec and Canada. He told it like it was his first time...not with mistakes but with passion and interest! He has done this tour a thousand times (we asked him) but made us feel his passion and love for his city, its founders and its history. He made us love the city too! Definitely worth the time and money!!!

The tour was indeed a great way to start the trip. Informative and gave us the history on how Montreal came to be and took us literally all over Old Montreal. Unfortunately it was swelteringly hot, but our guide Felicite did her best to shade hop for us and really gave us a sense of her love for Montreal. I am taking off a star because she didn't ask the ages of our kids and later they said they felt a bit ignored and talked down to. My bad for not telling Felicite their ages, but as older teens bordering on adulthood (19 and 17 year old twins), I felt it was fairly obvious that they were not little kids and wanted to be on the tour. She apologized for boring them several times and made assumptions that they were not interested in what she was showing them. So overall, the tour itself was really good and I would recommend. Maybe let the guide know ages of kids.

Our tour guide Robert was very knowledgeable about the history of Montreal. He was thorough and passionate about his city. It was an extremely windy morning for the tour, but Robert kept us moving and got us inside as much as he could to give everyone a break from the wind. Robert answered all of our questions and provided good dining recommendations. We went to one of the restaurants he recommended that night, The Keg Steakhouse, for a delicious dinner. Thank you!

If you really want to see and understand the history and culture of Old Montreal then I strongly suggest this walking tour. My wife & I took this tour in August and loved it. Without a guide you miss too much of the social history that drove the original settlement of Montreal. Our guide (Frederic) was very well informed, he knew the history and culture behind all the monumental statues and buildings on our tour. He brought it all to life, he knew the historical issues and could explain it al in great detail. Highly recommended.

Mathieu Demers provided an extremely entertaining, educational and individualized walking tour of Old Montreal (in English). We asked Mathieu many questions about the area ( both Montreal and Canada), dining locations ( for example, Au Pied de Cochon was a wonderful choice for poutine with four gras), politics, economy plus which he answered to his best. Very interesting and concise facts were provided, such as the piece of the Berlin Wall in the underground city. Old Montreal is a very colorful, fun city steeped in a lot of history. The tour was invaluable to one who visited Montreal for the first time.

Great 2 hour tour! It was the perfect way to start our first full day in Montreal. Really nice to have a private tour and the guide asked us if we had any specific interests and would tailor the tour accordingly. Really interesting to learn more about the history of Montreal and get a good feel for the Old Montreal neighborhood.

My wife and I took this tour on our first AM in Montreal. Claudine was excellent: punctual, polite, very knowledgable and FUN! She tapered the tour to our interests and took everything at our pace. She was energetic, relatable and so polite. She is a nice person who is also a great tour guide.

The tour was very informative, giving us a basic geographic understanding and layout as a basis for planning the rest of our long weekend in Montreal.

Strongly recommend the tour and recommend Claudine highly.
