Marie C.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada

ABOUT ME I am Marie, Montrealer by choice for more than 10 years, I take pride in showing you around the city I call home.

I fell in love with this city because of its eclectic and multicultural charms. I want to SHARE THIS LOVE with all of my guests!

In another life, I worked in an office in front of big excel boards. I quit everything in 2014 to create a new life full of ENCOUNTERS. I went back to studies and became a Certified Montreal guide. I am proud today of following my passions.

Fun Facts​:
*I never say no to chocolate, Sunday brunch and a board game with friends.
* I have very short hair, love it and feel more feminine that way.

ABOUT MY FUN AND INTERESTING TOURS
I offer tours that make you SEE, FEEL and UNDERSTAND Montréal the way I do. ENTHUSIASTIC and PASSIONATE, I like to offer insightful, factual and fun tours. I am passionate about storytelling. I share in a didactic way ENTERTAINING DETAILS details to make sure you have a better understanding of the city, its past but also its current inhabitants.

I particularly enjoy small private WALKING or BIKING tours. It gives me the opportunity to have a real connection with my guests, to talk about a subject you really care about and to answer any questions you may have in mind about Montreal. I will also make sure to give you ideas to explore the city further during your own time.

I offer well-honed tours all-year round, but I can also offer CUSTOMIZED ones according to your specific needs. I also collaborate with agencies offering Electric Scooters & Bicycles rentals. Do not hesitate to send me a message to know more about it.

I will make sure to bring the best of my good energy while touring with you! My ultimate goal is to make you SMILE making sure you have an OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE.

A Recent Review of this guide

Marie was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and with just the right amount of enthusiasm. There were 2 adults and 2 teenagers on our tour of old Montreal, and she made all of it very interesting for all of us - picky teenagers included :) Her communication through email beforehand was great. She clearly loves her job and the city - Thank you, Marie!
