we loved our virtual tour of Jewish history along the main. our tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging. I loved connecting my family stories with places and events on the tour, although I think anyone--even those without a personal connection--would enjoy the tour! we would highly recommend this tour!

I am originally from Montreal. I now live in Victoria BC. I took this virtual tour on Zoom with 2 other participants. The tour leader was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and keen to share the Jewish history of Montreal. The tour took us to 8 sites in the Plateau; I could easily have carried on to more. My family has been in Montreal since 1910, I am quite familiar with my own family history but not of the full experience of the early 1900s, nor of the early Montreal Jewish pioneers. I very much enjoyed the stories, photos, recordings of street sounds and Yiddish spoken. I saw the photos of first Folk and Peretz Shules, which I attended when Folk Shule moved to Van Horne. Memories from my parents' and grandparents' days were heartwarming. I would be thrilled to partake in other tours when they are developed. Carry on this important work.

Having spent 5 years in Montreal in my early 20s, learning of the history and culture of the neighborhoods I thought I knew was an enlightening experience. The tour was meticulously put together and provided wonderful historical context. The guide, Kate, was very knowledgeable and was also able to answer questions that did not specifically relate to the content of the tour. She was able to bring a human context to the historical facts, which greatly enhanced the experience of the tour. I can't wait to do the other tours! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in history or the cultural development of Montreal.

My husband and I really enjoyed the 90 minute "In the Shadow of the Mountain tour". Our guide Lara was very knowledgeable and personable. The pace of the tour was perfect: she provided lots of engaging anecdotes and information, but we still had ample time for questions and photos. It is a great way to explore a fascinating corner of Montreal. We look forward to trying other tours with this museum in the future.

We just had a wonderful walking tour with one of the summer students at the Jewish museum. I think her name was Lara. It was so interesting and Informative. And our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. We’re from Montreal and enjoyed learning things about our own city! We liked it so much that we decide to book a second tour with them tomorrow!
