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.

Memorable tour of Old Montreal!

Finally a moment to write a review of Pierre, who gave our group of four a private 3-hour walking tour of Old Montreal this past Fall. Pierre was awesome! A gifted storyteller, he was informative, humorous, organized -- showing us sights, places, and pass-throughs we would never have seen if not with a local guide. Although I have been to Old Montreal several times before, many of the aspects Pierre so engagingly pointed out about its history, art, architecture, and features were entirely new to me. This was one of many high points to our trip! I would recommend Pierre and Guidatour unhesitantly.

A great introduction to Old Montreal
Oct. 2019
We took this tour, both the east & west, on our first full day in Montreal and it really helped us get oriented. Our guides, Catherine for the east and Isabel for the west, were educated,informative and very entertaining. I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in seeing and learning about the history and characters of Old Montreal. There is a lot of walking if you do both east and west, but on a beautiful fall day, which we had, it was delightful!

We were a group of 8 friends looking to see as much as possible of the best of Old Montreal. We opted to take a 2.5 hr Private Walking Tour with guideatour.
Our charming, informative and witty guide, Rene was absolutely marvelous. He picked us up exactly on time from our Sofitel Hotel on Sherbrooke St, very close to the Museum of Fine Arts. We happily got a bit of a tour of Downtown Montreal as well as Old Montreal.
We saw so many places both well known and others we would never have seen without Rene. These include the interior of Le Mount Stephen Hotel converted from one of the great c. 1900 mansion, going thru the Railway station seeing some lovely Art Deco murals, a wonderful food hall and elegant hotel, an amazing new development using an old alley, covered by a glass roof, which now houses special art works and shops. We of course were enchanted by Vieux Montreal with its charming old streets and squares. We of course saw the obvious Notre Dame Basilica , Places d'Armes, Place Royal etc. We thought such a personal and wonderfully guided 2.5 hour tour with a most delightful and knowledgeable guide a bargain for CAD $185 for our group. I cant recommend it highly enough.

Thomas did an excellent job. Open and honest about Montreal. Very proud of the low crime rate and diverse cultures. Was a little early/on time, which is always great.
Recommend it to anyone that doesn't want to be part of a group tour.

Excellent private tour by extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide with a history background. Caroline gave my wife and me a useful introduction to Montreal history and suggested several additional places we should go afterward. We were very happy with the experience and thought the extra money was worth it for the two person tour rather than trying to follow along with a large group.
