Great guide makes for a great tour!
Susan_C, Sept 2023
Our guide, Alise was wonderful. Super knowledgeable and very good company. She started out by asking what we had already seen of the city so as to not duplicate parts of other tours and to give us a totally fresh experience. We learned a lot about the underground city and the city overall.

Below Ground Groundbreaking
Joan_F, Sept 2023
Pierre was such a congenial and knowledgeable guide! You could never figure out the Underground without his explanations. The history was fascinating. It is so incredible that just as many people as above ground are walking silently beneath our feet.

The tour was great! Perfect amount of time walking from our hotel to Old Montréal with a few highlights along the way for a large group. Perfect midday activity for a large group.

Fantastic Tour
Ericka_A, Apr 2023
I loved this tour! My guide, Pierre (I hope I got his name right. If not, I'm sorry. I'm bad with names!), is very knowledgeable of the history, culture and developments in Montreal. He shared many interesting information and trivia about Montreal's culture that he made me want to move to Montreal! Lol! This tour should have been my first tour in the city because it provides a very good overview of the city. But since I had the tour after a couple of days in Montreal, the tour made me appreciate Montreal more.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Hi Ericka, Thanks so much for this lovely review about your walking tour with Pierre! We're glad to hear that it made you appreciate Montreal more! We look forward to having you on another of our tours after moving in ;) Best, Guidatour's team

Easy walking tour full of information
Mike_R, Sept 2022
Excellent guide, very informative and friendly, highlight for us was the old town .Easy walk and I think it’s perfectly suitable for disabled people. Jean Michel was wonderfully accommodating and offered coffee breaks in between sightings.
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Hello Mike, So happy to hear you had a good time with Jean-Michel. Certainly the best thing about a private tour is that it can be tailored to the client. Here's to seeing you in Montréal again soon! All the best,
Excellent tour a very experienced proffesional

Response from Host, June 2022
Thanks very much for letting us know you enjoyed your tour of Montréal's famous "underground city". I hope our guide did not make you walk the entire 30km!! ;) All the best, and hope to see you on another tour soon.
Chris_H, Nov 2021
A fabulous tour of downtown Montréal. Without this tour we would not have known about the underground city. Our tour guide provided valuable information on how to see the light show at Notre Dame. Highly recommend

Great orientation to Montreal's history and the Underground
Richard_B, Aug 2018
Isabel did a great job showing us the geography of Montreal's Underground, but more than that, she filled in the historic details that made the experience memorable. This is a truly worthwhile tour since this is a part of Montreal that can be easily missed by a casual tourist.
