1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2015

Unfortunately, myself, my husband and our friends were very disappointed with the tour. There was little depth and the tour guide, while quite lovely, seemed inexperienced and could not answer any questions that veered from the text that she was following. Fortunately one of the members of the tour was from Montreal and was helpful in answering questions our tour guide could not. The title of the tour sounds much more interesting than it actually was, and to be quite honest, the 4 of us were sorry we spent both the time and money on it. I would not recommend it to friends.
