We enjoyed a quick introduction to Montreal city by our guide, Norman, who is knowledgeable about Montreal, has a quick humour and was easy to have a connection with. We are from Arizona, US and it’s the first time we travel to Canada. With this tour at the beginning of our trips, we were able to have a good idea where to go afterwards by using the subway system (Metro) and city bus. It was fun and memorable! We highly recommend it.

If you are visiting Montreal, it's better to first do this bus guided tour so you know which places to visit, our guide was knowdgable, (I forget his name), very lively person, who recommends places to visit. He was so kind that even when the weather was against us, we did the whole tour and he dropped us by the ViaRail station... it was our last day and had ro travel back to Toronto. The tour is well worth it.

Very good agency. The tour guide Pascal was great and always looked for a shady spot in the heat. He told a lot about the country and its people.

Tour was wonderful! The guide was excellent! I would recommend this tour to anyone going to Montreal

This relaxed and informative tour was the perfect way to start my week in Montreal.
