ToursByLocals Saddened by Death of Montreal Guide

(back to blog)

The staff at ToursByLocals was shocked and saddened this morning to learn that one of our long-standing guides in Montreal has passed away. Nadia Battani was only 47 years old, and died suddenly yesterday.
She leaves behind her a loving family and many friends in the Montreal guiding community. As Vice President of the Montreal Chapter of the Association Professionnelle des Guides Touristique, Nadia was deeply committed to promoting high standards of tour guiding around her city, country and the world.

Nadia had been a professional guide since 1992, and became a ToursByLocals guide partner in 2010. In the years that followed she took 150 groups of ToursByLocals travelers on private tours around Montreal, receiving dozens of 5-star reviews from travelers whose time in Montreal she had enriched.

As Nadia told us when she first joined our company, "My traveling passion has taken me to some of the most beautiful places in the world, but I have always come back home to Montreal, where I love to help visitors discover my beautiful, multi-cultural city."

We will all miss Nadia, and our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
