The first full day of our trip to Montreal started with a walking tour, lead by Nathalie. She showed us important spots in the old city and gave us great ideas on other places to see. Very informative. She was knowledgeable and friendly.

Fun tour. The guide was dressed in period clothes and stayed in character the whole time. More historical than I thought, but that's what I loved about it! Two small children were in our group so would definitely recommend for a family outing.
