Laura gave us an excellent tour of the East part of Old Montreal and along the way, she told us the history of the city from early settlements to present day. She emphasized the importance of French culture and the French language to Montreal, which was impressive to this group of English-speaking Americans. We highly recommend Laura!

We absolutely loved walking through the east side of Old Montreal with Elise! Elise was a wonderful, amiable guide with tons of information to share. I also appreciate her knowledge about women who impacted Montreal history! We loved walking through the streets and learning the little tidbits that make the area come alive. After the tour we ate lunch and then visited Notre Dame Basilica and even got to enjoy an organ concert!

Did arrived in Quebec City in the afternoon and immediately went on this tour. Helene was our lovely tour guide. It was obvious that she was passionate about her city and passed on that passion to us.
It was a nice overview of the old city and helped us be more specific on what we saw/visited for the remainder of the trip

My husband and I had an excellent tour with Sarah who was one of the best guides we’ve ever had. We really enjoyed viewing the murals and learning about the art form. Sarah was very knowledgeable, full of interesting commentary about the history of the mural festivals and the artists as well as the history and culture of Montreal. We would highly recommend both the subject matter and the guide.

My husband, son and I visited Montreal for the first time and decided to take a walking tour to begin with the trip. We very much enjoyed our tour guide. Her name is Elise Cayouette. She was a young and energetic guide that in addition of being knowledgeable she allowed us to enjoy the tour with her easy way to explain and narrate stories and history. Her enthusiasm was contagious and the whole group bounded to enjoy the experience. She recommended places to eat that we tried and we were not disappointed. We very much enjoyed the tour and our tour guide was excellent!. I believe the name of the tour was History Walking Tour of Old Montreal.

Our guide was Claire. We had never visited Montreal before. She brought the city to life with just the right amount of information, humor, patience and a real sense of knowing and loving her city. We think it was the best guided walk ever. Thank you. We love Montreal too!

We booked the old Montreal semi- private walking tour. The tour description states that it included admission to the Notra dame basilica . The tour confirmation stated again that this was included . This was the reason we chose this tour over others . Apparently this site has been closed since Covid, but given that it was closed for over a year, the description should have been updated . The guide was given extra money to buy extra food for us, but we had just eaten prior to the tour, and were not taking a tour to get more food, so this was an inappropriate compensation. Otherwise the guide was knowledgable and very nice.

Hi Marti, Thank you for the positive comments about the guide. We are sorry to hear that you were not informed about the Basilica. It was clearly indicated on our website and on the Basilica's website at the time but since you booked through a third party, maybe the information was not updated on their end. Rest assured that we will make a follow up and ask for an update on their website.That being said, we understand your disappointment and again, we are sincerely sorry. For the sake of other travelers, we would like to let you know that the Basilica now just reopened but that we will not include it in our tours anymore. Thank you again for your feedback and feel free to contact us directly to discuss some more. Best regards!

We did both walking tours of east and west old town with a break in the middle for lunch. Bruno was our guide and he was perfect. Very knowledgeable and friendly. You just can’t appreciate what you are seeing without hearing all the interesting history and amusing stories. It’s a must-do on your visit!

Amelie was a great guide. She was very knowledgeable and articulate. She was more than a guide, she gave great insights. We took the West tour, we hope to take the East tour next time we visit and hope to have Amelie again !
