Joy PhillipsUnited States
Our criteria for a guide include : depth of knowledge for the subject of the tour, passion for the subject, ability to communicate, planning of time, flexibility, consideration of clients and charm (yes, charm, so important for a guide) Ruby gets a five start rating for all of these. We went to places tourist don't normally see. We were delighted by the food we tastes and the sights we saw. Ruby helped us see Montreal through her eyes. Wow! We loved it. Touring Montreal? Do it with Ruby.

Garret SloanUnited States
An amazing time for my daughter and I. Ruby was so knowledgeable, kind, and friendly and took us to areas of the city well outside of the typical tourist spots: Mile-End, the Plateau, Villeray, Marche Jean Talon, little Italy, and multiple places within each. We had an awesome time. What was amazing is how many other ways she could have customized the tour. What was even more amazing was the number of people she knew that were not actually on the tour but just knew her and just smiled. Ruby rocks...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ahh so happy you enjoyed your experience! Thank you. Hope you had room for dinner and images Ruby
Krystyna ColburnUnited States
We liked Ruby's tour so much that we signed on for an additional one to enjoy her expertise and delve even deeper into Montreal's cuisine. She is most willing to customize the tour to fit your needs and wants and encourages you to try new restaurants that widen your world. A most knowledgable and cheerful guide, Ruby more than met our hopes.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Krystyna. Selma and Noel are incredible ladies. Just saw their text message as well. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Ruby
Krystyna ColburnUnited States
Ruby provided a tour that went beyond expectations. We are restaurant owners and of course wanted to experience the variety of Montreal cuisine. Ruby's knowledge of restaurants showed us some great foods of ethnic diversity and Montreal specialities in multiple price ranges. We fell in love with Su and breakfasted three times at Faberge. Our favorites were probably Damas and KazaMaxa who justly earned their 4 2/2 stars. Thanks to Ruby we found places we would have missed without her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Selma, Noel and Krystyna. So happy you enjoyed the discoveries. Very inspirational ladies. I look forward to seeing you again Ruby
Ben CushmanUnited States

Allan L.Sacramento, CA, United States
Ruby Roy is an outstanding guide. Her knowledge and historical perspective offer a fascinating and very fun tour experience. She combined tastes of food from a variety of interesting stops along with her sharing of ethnic traditions that helped form the Montreal that we see today. Ruby was extremely responsive to our needs, e.g., my wife has a gluten allergy and I use a walker. She could not have been more sensitive and helpful to both of us for the day and having good impact on the rest of our trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Allan and Norma Thank you for your kind words, I am very touched. Most of all so happy that you are enjoying. I am happy that I could offer you an authentic Montreal experience. Enjoy dinner and the view as well as your onward cruise. Look forward to seeing you both again. Ruby
