A Recent Review of this tour

Fascinating, informative, interesting, fun walking tour of Old Montreal with Ruby. Comfortable pace, wealth of knowledge about the history of Montreal and the area. Ruby has a great personality; we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. We were sorry we did not take her suggestion and also book her food tour. After her description of her local eating spots we were hungry!! Thank you Ruby!
