Enjoyed our time exploring the city with Gabriel, he was a wealth of knowledge and left no stone unturned! Thanks for sharing your city with us! Request him if you go, he was awesome!
The Best Walking Tour of Montreal!
Kirk_Z, Aug 2022
Patrick was informative and made fantastic use of our time to show us everything we wanted to see. He has a great sense of humor, and made the day a lot of fun!
The trip never happened. ...
Kathleen_N, May 2022
The trip never happened. All Viator could do was refund our money. The young lady who accepted this assignment provided a lame excuse and could come later in the day The trip the next day was excellent
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear Kathleen, I have spoken to the host assigned to your experience. She let me know that she tried to reach you multiple times via email and over the phone prior to your experience, however the phone number provided with your booking was incorrect and she didn't receive a reply to the emails either. She presented herself at the meeting place you requested (your hotel) at the time you selected at time of booking. However, you were not at the hotel at the time of the meeting. The hotel called back the host later during the day and connected her when you arrived. The host gave her availability for later in the day or next day, but you said you'd prefer to cancel. I feel that we have done all we could in this occasion to meet your needs. I am happy to discuss this further, please get in touch with me at
