A Recent Review of this tour

Our walking tour of Montreal with Ruby was great. We had a beautiful day to see the sights. Ruby was easy to communicate with online, and she planned a great tour which met our needs. From meeting us at the rail station, and helping us check our luggage with the bellman at the hotel, to stopping for snacks when we needed it. Would highly recommend Ruby at ToursByLocals in Montreal.
