    Thomas is an amazing guide! I did the tour of East and West Old Montreal, and he was eminently knowledgeable & kind
    Thomas was an amazing guide. He was knowledgeable, kind and funny. I learned a lot about a place I’d never been, and I came away appreciating Montreal even more. I would not have enjoyed this trip as much without doing this tour.

    Great Intro to Montreal
    We enjoyed a walking tour of Montreal with Carole L. M. We had unforeseen time issues so Carole quickly adapted our tour so that we could see and learn the most in limited time, even concluding at our cruise entrance. She was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic--we loved Montreal and can't wait to return!

    Our First Time In Montreal
    Our first time in Montreal and we booked East and West to see and learn about the area we are visiting. What an education! In the morning we toured with Catherine. She was so engaging and knowledgeable about the area and the history of where we were, what we were looking at and why it was important to know. We reallly enjoyed the stories of her grandmother’s experience and how it helped shape Catherine’s perspective. In the afternoon, we toured with Pierre. Such a gentleman! Stories of how it was when he was a boy really helped make the information personal and poignant. I could stand and listen to both guides talk me through a stereo instruction manual! An amazing day! Thank you Catherine and Pierre!

    Perfect introduction to Old Montreal
    Great overview of history, significant buildings and a good way to get to know the area which we revisited the next day. Tour guide very knowledgeable. We did an tour and pm tour and we’re disappointed that the afternoon guide was different than am guide

    Good Tour
    Thomas was a great guide. He was loud enough to allow everyone to hear even over the church bells. He had many antidotes on the tour and a great knowledge of the area. His sense of humor added to the tour. We did the morning and afternoon tours with him.

    We did the West Side Old Montreal Walking Tour. It was very informative and we saw a lot! Our guide, David D, was very friendly. Wish we had the time or energy to do the East Side tour also.

    Take the AM tour-skip the afternoon tour.
    The AM tour was worth every penny. Great guide who knew the history and made it really interesting. We took the afternoon tour as well but there wasn’t much else to see so it was boring.

    Nice walking tour of Old Montreal
    My wife and I really enjoyed our walking tour. Our guide was Elise C. She was very engaging with the entire group and we learned a lot about Old Montreal. She had a fun, bubbly personality. We enjoyed both East and West sides. Fortunately, Elise did both sides with us. Our pace was good and she wisely took us inside several times to see some cool sights and warm up. She made several recommendations for lunch spots and also suggested we go visit the Botanical Gardens at night for the Jardins de Lumiere. We ventured on our own for lunch and dinner but really enjoyed her suggestion for after our tour to the Botanical Garden. I would suggest this tour if you are looking for a nice walking tour of Old Montreal.

    East and West Old Montreal Walking Tour
    Carole and Sarah were excellent guides. They were extremely knowledgeable about east and west Old Montreal and shared many insights of the area as well as history and architecture. Great day and liked the lunch break between east and west tours. Tour guides interacted throughout the tour with the participants !

This tour is falsely presented. It is advertised as a "private" tour of up to 15 people. We booked the tour with 4 people, but when we arrived for the tour we were told it wasn't a private tour, but a group tour of 15 people. It was not that interesting and a complete waste of money.

Bonjour, We sincerely apologize for any confusion and disappointment you experienced during your recent visit to our tour. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us improve our services. Firstly, we offer three types of tours: public, VIP (semi-private), and private. We understand that there may have been some confusion regarding the tour type you booked, and we want to clarify the distinctions to rectify the situation. Public Tour: This tour is open to a larger group of participants, often up to 15 people, and is designed to provide an economical option for our guests. It is not private. VIP (Semi-Private) Tour: This tour offers a more intimate experience with a smaller group of participants, typically limited to a maximum of 6 people, providing a better chance for interaction and a more personalized experience. It is not private but offers a more exclusive atmosphere than the public tour. Private Tour: This tour is exclusively for your group, ensuring privacy and a personalized experience with no additional participants. We are truly sorry if there was any confusion regarding the tour type you expected. To further assist you and address this situation, we kindly request additional information such as the name of the booking platform, your name, the date and time of the tour, and optionally, the guide's name. You can contact us at info@guidatour.qc.ca . This will allow us to investigate the issue thoroughly and take appropriate actions to prevent such miscommunications in the future. Our goal is to provide exceptional experiences to our guests, and your feedback is invaluable in helping us achieve that. Once we receive the necessary details, we will take steps to ensure that future guests are better informed about our tour options and their specific characteristics. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience you may have encountered during your visit and hope to make it up to you promptly. Sincerely, Guidatour's Team

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.

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!

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!

We had a wonderful time walking through old town Montréal. Our tour guide, Thomas was entertaining, informative and funny. He even kept the 5 and 7 year olds interested, as well as the 3 teenaagers. THAT is a talent. He knew the answers to all our questions and led us to all sorts of hidden gems that we would have never even known were there. Definitely recommend.

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.

We met our guide, Martin, at the Place d’Armes and it was a bit rainy. No worries, Marin quickly found a dry place to tell us about our tour and give us an initial history lesson on the city of Montreal. His visual aids, especially the ones he painted himself ;) , were very helpful. We learned a lot and had a lot of laughs. Martin made this tour special. His personality is well suited for making tourists comfortable.
