So worth our time! Christian was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny, engaging and well-versed in history and architecture. One of the best walking tours I've ever taken thanks, in large part, to Christian and his expertise and people skills.

We're not big history people, but found the tour to be interesting. However I'm not sure kids would like it compared to concentrating on their electronic devices and ignoring the world around them.

Some areas, but there were many stairs. There may be detours that would get a wheelchair to each location, but I would suggest you contact the Free Old Montreal Tours staff.
