Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. The walking tour was well paced. Because there were only two of us on this group tour there was lots of time for questions, answers and information on the best ways to travel to other points in the city that we wanted to visit.

Danny was outstanding. Knowledgeable, interesting, entertaining and a good dancer (kidding about him being a good dancer - though he may well be). This is an excellent tour which informs as well as allows one to get their bearings in an unfamiliar city.

Marie, our tour guide, was excellent. She kept us interested with local stories as well as the history. She talked about the art, food, and options to explore on our own. Loved every minute.

Marie is a gem. This walk is such a good mix of all things MTL from the historic stuff to the current, through the eyes of a local of course. We appreciate you sharing your experience being the small company we are. Happy you enjoyed! Cheers

Our guide Elyse was most informative and maintained a pleasant pace. Her tour provided an introduction to the Montreal city history and culture in just enough detail to make us visitors feel we understood why the residents take such pride in their beautiful city.

Danny the young company owner led our small four person group on a very personalized tour that balanced old, new and trendy Montreal. Very enjoyable. The bao and iced coffee that were included introduced us to local businesses and new tastes of Montreal.
