Customized tour that fit my interests perfectly!
Stephanie_L, Oct 2022
Gabriel was a wonderful tour guide full of knowledge about Montreal's architecture and history (as well as some great places to grab a bite to eat!). He really listened to my interests and put together an itinerary that suited me well! We explored rare Isaac Newton books and science history at McGill University, stopped at a cafe afterward for coffee and snack, walked through beautiful neighborhoods, and wandered to Place des Arts and Old Port for sightseeing, where he recommended some great food. Gabriel is the best, and so was this tour!
A fantastic tour with Lesley!
Ray_T, Apr 2022
Lesley is the best; knowledgeable, funny, super friendly, and extremely helpful. We had a great time on her tour and learned so many things that only a local would know. She also had so many great recommendations for after the tour. Her tour is a must!
