A wonderful way to explore Old Montreal during the holidays! Though it was a bitterly cold night (-14c!) our guide made the tour possible by keeping us inside as much as possible. We explored the historic shopping arcades and beautiful buildings of Montreal and learned about the history of Christmas and the influence of the church in this fascinating region of Canada. Our guide was informative, friendly and fun - we even finished the tour with some delicious cheese and wine! Thoroughly recommended.

The guide was knowledgeable and provided numerous anecdotes; tour dominated by architecture mostly of former banks. The tour ended in a gift shop at Bonsecours. It would have been interesting to include some explanation of First Nation and other traditional crafts that were on sale at the shop.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2013

I did this tour December 7th.
The guide was pleasant, however did not tell us that the craft market we ended up in front of was closed until we were standing in front of it at the end of the tour.
I had read the advertisement that said we ended up at the craft market and were looking forward to this
