Our walking tour with John was one of, if not the best, tours that we have taken. We appreciated his friendly and professional manner, and his knowledge of Montreal and it's history. We truly learned a lot. It was a perfect first day in Montreal. It helped us to make choices for how we wanted to spend the rest of our stay. My husband and I highly recommend a tour with John. For us it was like touring with a friend.
