Great way to tour old Montreal. Our tour guide was very pleasant, knowledgeable, effusive, and happy to answer any questions. Tour is two hours, which is probably not enough to go into great depth but definitely enough to whet your appetite and provide you with good ideas for further exploration. Really recommend that you do this as early as possible in your stay so that you can use what you learn to plan the rest of your vacation. Good value for the money and much better than the bus tours which fly by most sites (that said, this tour is focused on Old Montreal, so you may want to supplement with some other activities to get a feel for the rest of the city).
Our guide was exceptional. She was very knowledgeable about the city sights and had recommendations for restaurants and exhibits. We really enjoyed the tour.
This was an excellent way to learn about Old Town Montreal and its history. I also took a grayline tour and this walking tour was head and shoulders better than that company's tour. I would not recommend Grayline but strongly recommend this Viator Walking Tour.
Our tour guide, Anne, mixed a wealth of history and information with a few well placed jokes and anecdotes for a wonderful tour. Her enthusiasm for Montreal and for answering questions made the tour highly enjoyable and made it easy to approach her with questions. Our children enjoyed the tour as well, as she engaged them and tailored some of her commmentary to include items of interest to them.
We got to see several different parts of Old Montreal and because it was Sunday, did not have to compete with traffic or construction noise. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. She was happy to give advice about restaurants, etc. in the area also. I took this same walking tour the following day with a different guide, and got a different point of view and different information, and there was some differences in locations we visited due to it being a work day. We also got to visit inside the Basilica briefly since there were no masses or weddings on a Monday.
Our tour guide was excellent and I would hightly recommend the walking tour.
Tour guide was excellent. Tour was interesting.
Well worth the time if you've never been to Old Montreal. Our guide was chatty, informative and had a sense of humor. Our group was apparently quite large but still able to navigate the streets safely. I think just the tour inside the Basilica of Notre Dame itself was worth the price of admission. Our guide also offered suggestions for other activities, places to dine, etc. Happy we did this.
Excellent tour, very informative, guide was most accomodating.
Enjoyed every thing about the tour. Our tour guide made the trip well worth it.
Great introduction to Old Montreal. Took the tour on our first day, then went back to further explore some of the areas we saw during the tour.

Absolutely great - tour guides were fantastic, learned things we would not have without the guide.
On our first day in Montreal, we took the walking tour in a driving rain. By the end of the tour, our feet were soaking wet, and my fingers were so cold that I couldn't feel them. But we'd do it again in a minute. George, our tour guide, was excellent. And the walking tour gave us just enough information to go out and explore Old Montreal on our own for the next few days. I highly recommend this tour. Incidentally, the coupons on our tour tickets saved us 15.00 at the Pointe-a-Callieres museum. George pointed it out to us.
