Lesley, the MTL Detour owner/operator, is an excellent and engaging tour guide. She's very passionate and knowledgeable about her hometown and its history. I learned so much on this tour and highly recommend booking any tour activity with Lesley. In fact, I had such a positive experience, that I've just booked another tour with MTL Detours when I return to Montreal this summer.
