Great tour in old Montreal

We had a great time with our tour guide Andres. He was very informative and made the tour fun. The architecture on the bank buildings is beautiful.

Extremely Disappointed
JennyD, Aug 2022
We have participated in many tours with Viator. Unfortunately, this tour was a waste of our time and our money. We learned very little about old Montreal; the guide was either inexperienced or didn't want to be there. he just gave a few sentences about each area that we visited. Compared with other tours we have taken, the guides have been enthusiastic and knowledgable. We regretted not taking a Hop On Hop Off bus and felt that we would have learned more about Montreal's history.
Response from Host, Aug 2022

Andre, our tour guide, was outstanding. His knowledge of history, culture, and the Montreal of today made for a great walking tour.
Response from Host, July 2022
Hello Robert, Thank you for telling us about your tour and for the nice compliments. We hope you come visit us again soon! Best,
Nice tour, great guide
Andrea_S, July 2022
Laura, our guide, was great. We learned a lot about the history of Montreal and even some about contemporary Quebec culture. The walking was not strenuous, and we saw mostly building exteriors (went inside 3). The ‘snack’ was not necessary. Overall, a very enjoyable morning.
Response from Host, July 2022
Hi Andrea, Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback and let others know you enjoyed the tour. Duly noted about the coffee break/snack. We hope to see you in Montreal again soon! Best,
Worth the money and time!
Diane_H, June 2022
The guides explanation of the stories behind the plaques went beyond what we could have learned by just reading them.
Response from Host, June 2022
Hi Diane, Thanks for taking the time to let us know you appreciated our guide's explanations. We hope you enjoyed your entire stay in Montréal. Best,
Great Guide!

Great tour guide
Susan_C, Sept 2021
We lucked out and were the only 2 people on the tour with Thomas. Thomas was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable with some fun and funny facts and anecdotes. Two hours was about the right amount of time for the tour. We saw the inside of some buildings that we would never have thought to go into.
Response from Host, Sept 2021
Bonjour Lisa, We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience with Thomas. We really appreciate your positive comments, thank you!

Sarah was a most amazing guide. My hubby started feeling unwell during the tour and she was super accommodating and concerned. She had us sit for a while and even bought us cold water. The tour was very interesting and I learned a lot about the architecture and history of old Montreal! Thx!!

This was an excellent tour! Our guide, Christian, was amazing! He was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area… he shared not only the “textbook history “ but the really interesting “life tidbits “ of the area. I highly recommend this tour! It was interesting and fun!
