A Recent Review of this tour

Nathalie, although dealing with a recent severe ankle fracture, was extremely pleasant, outgoing and friendly, and provided us with a tour vastly exceeding our expectations. Her optimism and enthusiasm, and genuine love of the diverse culture that makes Montreal an international city of note, translated into a fascinating and fun day at the end of which she went out of her way to drop us off at an earlier tour stop so we could indulge a craving! A charming guide you will be glad you chose!!!
