Looking for the definitive introduction to Montreal? You'll find it with John! My wife and I were treated to a 5-Hour Tour of Old and New Quebec starting with riverside Old Town and ascending to the summit of Mont Royale for a breath-taking overlook of Montreal and the St. Lawrence Valley. Along the way, we were entertained by John's detailed and humorous recounting of early Montreal and its transformation to a modern world-class city.

Just returned from a spectacular tour with John. We learned so much about the history and culture of Montreal in our 5 hour tour. We were so engrossed in what we were seeing and learning, the time just flew by. Our tour was the perfect balance of walking and driving, as John adapted our itinerary according to our interests and energy level. John was knowledgeable, flexible, and considerate, and has obviously honed his craft over the years. This was our first experience with TBL, but won't be our last
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Janet: What a nice message to wake up to!. Thank you for your kind comments...I had great fun showing my city to you and Steve. Thank you for having chosen me to be your tour guide. John

We were disappointed in our tour of Old Montreal. In fact, we cut it short when it became obvious that our guide had nothing more to show us and he was killing time by taking us to a mall. The guide showed little enthusiasm for the area, spent too much time reading plaques on the walls of historic buildings, repeated himself often and did not try to engage us in any conversation or attempt to find out anything about our particular interests. He crossed streets without making sure we w
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very disappointed with this rating. I did all that I could to inform and entertain the two ladies. The booking was made in the name of Bernard Lerer, but it was Mrs Lerer and another lady who showed up.... when I enquired for Mr Lerer I was told that he had to go to a meeting, so I assume that this tour was not the choice of the ladies, who spent most of the time talking to each other in another language. I tried to make the tour interesting, to no avail. The ladies decided to end the tour when t
Our driver and guide John is very knowledgeable of Montreal. He was punctual to meet us in the hotel lobby so that we started the tour on time. The itinerary covered most of the landmarks of Montreal, and he explained the characteristics of the each landmark and neighborhood in great detail. He is a courteous & helped my senior mother in and out of his SUV. This is the most suitable tour for someone with a mobility condition and John's service is much appreciated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lin: Thank you for such a positive rating,.....much appreciated. I hope that you and your mother enjoyed your cruise. Yours, John McL Licensed Montreal Tour Guide

Janice HillsUnited States
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.
Robert HowardUnited States
the guide was knowledgeable about the history of Montreal and Canada. the three of us enjoyed his comments and the tour of the city. the economy car used was unforgiveable. we specifically asked for a large car and he used a very small one. passengers were 6', 6'3" and 6'5". we said it was a deal breaker but our request was not fulfill. I rate that part of the trip a minus one.

Mary JohnstonUnited States
John was a fantastic tour guide. he knows Montreal well. We had an unusual situation: 5 people (he usually provides a tour for 3), including a 90-year-old woman with limited mobility. He graciously rented an SUV and tailored the tour to fit our needs. He showed us Old and New Montreal and up to a lookout with a fantastic view. At the end of the tour, he acccompanied me and my husband into the bus station to make sure we found our bus, then drove the other 3 to their hotel.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Sagar: Thank you for the rating......I meant to do a short tour of Montreal as a "freeby" for you, but a booking for a tour came through, and as I can only do one tour at a time.....

John made our tour very relaxed, thorough and personalized. He gave us an excellent knowledge of Montreal's history.

Diane MarkowskiUnited States
John was very knowledgeable about the area. He showed us all areas of the city and informed us of it's history. He took us to the most fabulous Farmer's Market I have ever seen. He also showed us views of the city we would not have been able to find for ourselves. And he found a great little local bakery for lunch. I would highly recommend him.
