Great Tour with Great Information I took this tour in late January of 2023 with Amélie. Between Montreal and Quebec City, I took 3 other walking or walking/eating tours in about a week, and I felt this tour did the best job of discussing the history of Quebec and Montreal in a manner that was linear, informative, occasionally quite specific, and still easy for everyone to understand. Information on early French Canada, developments in Montreal through time, comments on different architecture, and the Separatist Movement was given in a manner that suggests Amélie had a depth of personal knowledge on the subject matter. - 2/06/2023

Lesley was a wonderful tour guide Lesley was a wonderful tour guide. She is very knowledgeable and responsive to any questions our group had for her. She gave us some wonderful tips of things to do afterwards, and we did several of them. Some of the tips she gave us were on a printed sheet and had restaurant suggestions and many other ideas. I highly suggest taking her tour when you have a chance. - 10/17/2022

A great walking tour of Old Montreal Lesley, our tour guide, met us promptly and immediately made us feel comfortable and welcome. She proved to be immensely knowledgeable about Montreal and its history and was amusing and friendly. She showed us places of great interest and also gave us a terrific list of restaurants and other Montreal attractions. We can’t recommend her highly enough. - 10/14/2022

Very Enjoyable Activity We highly recommend this tour. We received a good mix of information about Montreal, both historical and current. The guide, Elise, was truly excellent. You can tell that she really loves this city. Her enthusiasm was a delight. Don't hesitate to sign up for this one. - 9/28/2022
