A Recent Review of this tour

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...
