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

Darrell RicheyUnited States
John was a great tour guide. We were delayed by 45 minutes getting off the ship, but John waited patiently for us in the cruise terminal. He started talking about Montreal as he headed to our hotel to drop off our luggage. He was friendly and very informative. We stopped several times to walk around (and sometimes take a bathroom break). We showed us different parts of the city, giving us facts & history, as well telling stories. It was overcast with some rain, but we had a good time.

I just had a tour of Montreal with John and it was a wonderful experience. I feel that he showed me many of the important places in Montreal, a beautiful city. John is so "spot on" with the history of the city and it's connection to other cities and countries. He was very informative and made the tour so interesting. The four hours went by in a flash. I would highly recommend John for ANY tour that you are considering. He truly deserves my Five Stars!!

Deborah B.United States
Was disappointed that we didn't get to stop at St. Joseph's Oratory (even for a picture). Felt tour was a little rushed at the end. Enjoyed the places we did see, especially Notre Dame Church.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Debbie: Before we stopped on Queen Mary Road and saw the St.Joseph Oratory, we had agreed that because you had a flight to catch, there wouldn't be time enough to visit the Oratory, which takes at least an hour to visit. You also saw the big line-up that there was to visit the Oratory. I am glad that you enjoyed what you did see. John I am glad that
