Star rating:

The tour guide and the bus driver are knowledgeable, super friendly and helpful. Less 1 star because of ambiguous information about pickup points. They mentioned pickup available for downtown hotels but didn’t mention the pickup address for hotels are not in downtown. And the contact via phone and email are impossible for getting the exact address of the pickup points.

A wonderful 3.5 hr trip. Our guide and driver were very patient, friendly, and helpful. We really got a thorough introduction to the main areas and attractions of Montreal. We took our trip at 9am Thursday September 15. Thank you to the guide for sharing so much interesting information and anecdotes; and a thank you to the driver for safely driving us around a very busy city - both of you did an exceptional job! Many thanks.

I am so glad I decided at the last minute to go on this tour of Montreal. Our guide was very knowledgeable, speaking both French and English. His stories were fun and added to the tour. The tour was pretty comprehensive and gave me a much better overview of the city and some of it history. It definitely gave me several ideas of other activities to look into to fill the rest of my weekend in Montreal.
