A wonderful 3.5 hr trip. Our guide and driver were very patient, friendly, and helpful. We really got a thorough introduction to the main areas and attractions of Montreal. We took our trip at 9am Thursday September 15. Thank you to the guide for sharing so much interesting information and anecdotes; and a thank you to the driver for safely driving us around a very busy city - both of you did an exceptional job! Many thanks.

A comfortable and easy way to see the top sights. Our tour guide, Richard, was very informative and knowledgeable. Additionally our bus driver, Frank ensured our drive was a smooth one. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about Montreal and its culture.

Norman our tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun. He ran into some challenges due to a bike event in town but he was quick to pivot. He made great recommendations for places to go and dine afterward. We have had a memorable trip thanks to Norman! Highly recommend!

Enjoyed the experience. Old Montreal is different and some highlights were nice to see.... Olympic Stadium, Churches.

2 and a half hours gives you a good feel of the city.
