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.
*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.
FAMILY-FRIENDLY / YOUNG KIDS
I am a young mom (2 toddlers!) and used to be the eldest of a 5-children family. During wintertime, I also teach in preschools and middle schools. At ease with your young ones, I'd be more than happy to customize a family-friendly tour!
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.
