Old Montreal tour
Melissa_K, Aug 2022
Pierre was great! Very knowledgeable! He made great recommendations for later. He also showed us parts of old Montreal that we would not have found on our own. A solid two hour tour that went by very quickly. Our 15, 11 and 9 year old were able to enjoy the tour as well. Highly recommend this tour at the beginning of your trip so that you can explore the recommendations thoroughly.
Best old port excursion

Our guide, David, was well informed and interesting. He was friendly and eager to answer our questions. Although the tour started 25 minutes later than scheduled due to a mistake on the tour operator’s fault, the operator quickly rectified the situation when I called the contact number. Service was polite and accommodating. We were happy with the tour.

Hello! I'm so happy you enjoyed learning about the different architectural styles! Although some think architecture can be a bit dry, the way the buildings are built is so key to a place's identity. It really is fascinating. We look forward to having you on another tour next time you visit. All the best,

JoAnn_S, Jun 2022
As a repeat visitor to Montreal, we enjoyed our time with Gabrielle. I think if this had been first time visiting, this tour would not have been helpful. There’s a lot of up and down hill walking which challenged us.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi JoAnn, Thank you very much for taking the time to send us some feedback... and for what is essentially a positive review. We will be sure of course to pass on your comment about the uphill and the downhill to our guide. All the best,
Best introduction to Old Montreal. Recommend without question.

Jonathan_P, May 2022
We had a great time with our group of 7 people! Our lovely guide Felicity shared her deep affection for the city of Montreal, its history, and its architecture. She was excited to lead tours again after the Pandemic and it showed. She shared interesting facts and insights, and our group thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her and the city during our 2-hour tour. Felicity shared her personal story, moving from Italy, as well as highlighting her favorite spots to eat and visit. Highly recommend this tour if you have a group that wants their own tour; we even had an impromptu iced coffee break. It’s all these personal touches that elevate a tour beyond a self-guided audio tour.
Response from Host, May 2022
Bonjour Jonathan, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your positive experience, we sincerely appreciate it. We are delighted to hear that your group enjoyed discovering Montréal through Felicity's passion and knowledge. We will share your kind words with her!
