Our walking and metro/bus neighborhood tour with Ruby was the highlight of our long weekend in Montreal. Ruby is professional, pleasant, thoroughly knowledgeable and clearly has a passion for being a tour guide. She covered all facets of every neighborhood we visited - architecture, history, culture, cuisine, etc., in Old Montreal, Plateau, Little Italy and beyond. We highly recommend Ruby and this tour.
