Christian S.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Discover Montreal accompanied by a passionate and knowledgeable "Montréalais" (Montrealer).

My name is Christian (globetrotter, foodie, serial entrepreneur and amateur Flamenco guitarist). Although I am originally from the States (of Indonesian and French background), I have lived for 28 years in this beautiful city. My first encounter with Montreal was initially as a wide-eyed tourist, then as a new immigrant and entrepreneur and for more than two decades, as a passionate advocate, in love with the city's history, culture and people.

Let me share with you my discoveries and ''inside information'', ranging from little-known neighbourhood restaurants with unique personalities, to unbeaten paths offering vistas of the city, it's "mountain'' and it's river.

Choose one of my tours ''as is'', or contact me and let me customize a tour to your specific interests. Let your experience of Montreal become a bucket list item that you will want to relive and share with others.

A Recent Review of this guide

Christian is the epitome of hospitality and professionalism. He led me and my mom on a walking tour of Old Montreal that he customized to our interests. He showed up prepared with maps, guides and even a personalized list of suggestions for the rest of our stay in the city. He fielded all of our questions and is simply an encyclopedia of knowledge about his city. We left feeling like we had known Christian for years and very much enjoyed his warm welcome and introduction to Montreal. Highly recommend!
