Very worthwhile walking tour. A great mix of history, architecture and interesting facts about Montreal. The morning tour, break and then afternoon tour was perfectly timed. Despite the terrible weather (pouring rain and 40 degrees), we thoroughly enjoyed our tour and Sarah was fantastic.

It was a cold/windy day, but we still enjoyed our walking tour of the east side of Old Montreal. Our guide was Pierre and he was excellent, giving us a great background on the city, it's beginnings, it's history. Would highly recommend.
