The trip was perfect from start with complimentary pick up from hotel in Montreal downtown. Very good bus driver and guide who had explained and shown us around. The quick brief intro tour of Quebec old city was very helpful when we were left on our own fir 2hours free time in the city. The Christmas decoration and snow made the December trip even more exciting but slightly chilly. Be prepared to warm up.

The trip was very informative and enjoyable. It tells you about history of the city and major incidents and important buildings and monuments in Montreal. If you don’t know anything about the city, this is a great opportunity.

Fran was perfect. Knowledgeable, friendly, and encouraging. In 7 hours we were able to see all the major sights in Montréal. Would recommend to everyone and will be returning with more friends!! Merci beaucoup, Fran!!!

Our guide Francois was very knowledgeable and professional. Learned alot and got to experience parts of Montreal we would not have visited.

Amazing guide and driver. Took their time to explain all important places. Would recommend the tour for all.
