Our guide, Natasha, was awesome. She tried to include everyone in our party in the conversation through the tour. She highlighted several points of interest and encouraged us to consider going to afterwards. We Highly recommend this tour group for this tour.

A fabulous day out, with many short stops on the way in delightful villages that I hadn’t heard of. Very well organised and well commentated.

Catharine, was a superior guide. She covered the history, culture and architecture of New France and Montreal.

An excellent telling and tour of the beginning of old Montreal and its' subsequent history. Money well spent.

Very good but should specify the details for the tour prior to booking. Otherwise it was awesome!
