We had an absolutely fabulous day with Louis P learning all about the history and culture of Montreal. We booked a 4-hour walking tour of the old city, but Louis added so much more to our experience. From graciously meeting us at our hotel, to walking us through must-see stops along the way, Louis shared his expert knowledge, insights, and engaging humor - making it the highlight of our trip. Best of all, he gave us great recommendations of the best restaurants and bars to add to our fun! Thank you Louis
