We toured with Andre, who kept us moving and entertained for two hours. He gave us a history lesson of the old city and mixed in humor and “trick questions “ to keep us engaged and thinking. We visited Notre-Dame Basilica and its silent chapel, had a quick ice cream snack, and were introduced to the variety of Old Montreal’s architecture. This was a fun and educational way to become acquainted with the old part of the city.

This was a fabulous tour. The morning of our tour was rainy and chilly. My husband and 12-year old daughter were not very happy with me when I told them that we were going to go on the tour despite the weather. There was a mix-up with our reservation but Guidatour fixed it immediately and we were supplied with a tour guide within 5 minutes. The three of us were the only people on the tour (my guess is that others canceled due to the weather). Our tour guide, Sarah, was just perfect. When our tour ended, both my husband and daughter told me that she was the best tour guide we have ever had and that they loved the tour. I agree. Sarah was professional, informative, interesting and very responsive to questions. Sarah was also fantastic with my daughter and really engaged her in the whole experience. I highly recommend Guidatour and Sarah!

VIP means there were just a few of us on the tour, which was very nice. Our guide was a middle aged woman whose knowledge of the city and its history was very impressive, and whose voice i could listen too all day long. Walking tours with knowledgable guides is the way to go.

We spent about one hour of a two hour tour in stores - a maple store and a souvenir market. I could do that myself without spending money on a tour if I wanted to. I did not . i thought we would spend the two hours learning about Montreal.

Bonjour Mrs Brodkin, Thank you for your feedback! We are sincerely sorry and surprised to read your comments. The VIP tour normally includes a 10-15 minute break for a coffee and/or a treat that is included in the price of the tour (in the maple boutique or elsewhere), half way through or at the end of the visit. The main focus of the tour is history, architecture and relevant anecdotes about Old Montréal. Our guides are instructed to keep the visit about these topics and to not include any other stops, especially not in souvenir markets. You may be referring to Bonsecours Market, which has a lot of historical value. It does now house shops selling local crafts. If you would be kind enough to contact us directly to indicate the name of your guide or to share any additional feedback, it would certainly help us followup with your guide. Best regards, Guidatour's Team

Claude was an excellent guide, who didn’t rush us but made sure that we got to see a lot and learn very interesting things at each stop rather than just telling us names and dates. There was an awesome stop at the end. The best walking tour of our whole vacation!
