Elsa_D, Nov 2021
This tour is our second tour (3 hours tour) after small-group sightseeing tour. After this two tours, it gave us hindsight of Montreal. As a small group tour, Mounir was able to give a sort of personalized tour. His knowledge on the history & culture of Montreal is terrific.

SandraSchmidt, Nov 2021
Mourir was an amazing ambassador for Montreal. He is passionate and has lots of interesting facts to share. We did this tour on a first day here. Would absolutely recommend doing this tour first to get a good idea of where to go next/later. So appreciated him kindly squeezing us into the tour. Thank you Mounir.

We did both the morning and afternoon city tour. Was an excellent overview of the city. The tour was informative. The driving/walking sections and breaks were nicely spaced. The car was comfortable and water was offered. Had an enjoyable day.

Neha_K, Feb 2020
I was in Montreal for work and only had 1 day of the weekend to explore the city. With the freezing temperature, walking around and exploring stuff on my own wasn't an option. This tour is a perfect solution for such so situation. The pick up and drop was smooth, the guide touched all the key attraction in the first 3 hours with detailed history of each. We were given sometime time to walk around and take pictures as well. I took a full day tour and enjoyed the next half more. He took us to diverse neighborhoods, famous bagel stores, huge farmers market and The Plateau where we walked around for a while. Perfect experience of complete Montreal in a nutshell.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Thank you so much Neha for your kind recommendation. It's highly appreciate it. I wish you a fruitful week in Montreal
Sehr schöne Tour-hat sich definitiv gelohnt.
Sandra_M, May 2023
Eine sehr angenehme kleine Gruppe, wenn der Bus allerdings voll gewesen wäre hätten wir nichts mehr vom Guide verstanden, da es kein Mikrofon gab. Neben dem st Josef Oratorium gab es eine downtown Tour, wie auch eine Tour in die Aussenbezirke. Natürlich den bagel und die ahornsirup tarte.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you so much Sandra for your kind review, it's highly appreciated. We are sorry that you had difficulty hearing the guide. A rainy day could also add to that too. Our guides are equipped with amplifier, but sometimes when the group is quite small, they may not use it as they may think it is not necessary. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Enjoy traveling and all the best!
