“Outstanding 4-hour walking tour on a stunning fall day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

My wife & I toured for 4 hours the morning of 10/18 - a stunning fall day! This was a private tour with a charming, experienced, knowledgeable guide who clearly enjoyed his job.

Starting with the astonishing Notre Dame Basilica, we walked the entire length & breadth of Old Montreal. Everywhere the architecture was excellent & inspiring. Our tour included such new features as the Intercontinental Hotel with its adjoining enclosed street & the "Pink Lipstick Forest" art installation in the Convention Center.

Montreal is a magnificent city! :)

“Amazing History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

There is a lot of history in this area of the city. I took a walking tour which gave me a lot more information than if you just walked around on your own. There are so many historic sights. This area is not as well-preserved as Quebec City, but there are still many wonderful sights.
