Such a great experience! There’s nothing to compare with the history and greatness of Old Montreal, and seeing it through the eyes and stories of our guide Rene was the highlight of my first-time trip to Montreal. Rene is charming and very knowledgeable, and most of all, his love for Montreal was quite obvious. This was money well spent!

We really enjoyed our tour with Mike. The old buildings in Vieux Montreal are beautiful and the information about the history of Montreal and the competition between the French and the English as played out in the architecture was interesting. The tour was small and not rushed. Mike considerately allowed for a bathroom break. The tour made me stop and take a closer look at the architecture and adornments. I was surprised that the Sulpician seminary was not included. Excellent value for money.

I have been taking several tours past 2 weeks of my vacation but so far this one has been the most impressive. Mike was my guide. He was very knowledgeable about the architecture and how it has evolved. I've learned so much in only 2hr walk. Thinking about taking their bicycle tour for my last day in Montreal
