Leah HoltzbergUnited States
I took a tour with Chantal on Aug.18th in Montreal. I got my money's worth as Chantal was flexible, knowledgeable and kind. I had difficulty walking and she accommodated me while filling me with information about the architecture and history of many sites. I asked for some tastings which she included. So I wouldn't forget the many places we went, she sent me an e-mail chronicling the tour. She is upbeat and loves her job. I heartily recommend Chantal for a terrific tour of Montreal!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good morning Mrs Holtzberg, Thank you so much for this great review! I was please to meet you and to share my love of Montreal with you. I'm glad you keep my tour in your memories of this long trip you did. I will remember as well your love for very colorfull objects, cloths, pieces of art ... you're right, it brings joy and life! Many other travels to you! Kindly, Chantal
Margaret GoldsteinUnited States
Chantal was a wonderful companion for my 3 hour walking tour. She had plotted out an excellent route that introduced me to this beautiful city, giving me lots of ideas for the next couple days. Moreover, we engaged in easy conversation for the entire tour, discussing many aspects of the political, religious, and economic history of Montreal. I learned so much, and enjoyed myself tremendously. Not to mention good restaurant suggestions for dinner that evening. Very much recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good morning Margaret, What a great review! Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm glad you've enjoyed my recommendations. You are a lovely lady and it was a real treat for me to be with you! Enjoy the rest of your stay in Montreal! So nice meeting you! Chantal

Ilyse WertheimUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Montreal with Chantal. It was our 1st visit to Montreal and we were a party of three including my mom and my 15 year old daughter. Chantal was prompt and met us at our hotel. She tailored the tour based our our input. We could not have asked for a better time in Montreal and Chantal made it memorable. I look forward to returning to Montreal and seeing the underground city in depth with Chantal as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mrs Wertheim! What a lovely review! Thanks so much! I apprecite your time! Spending this moment with the 3 of you was a joy and your interest in every topics made it so interactive and fun! All the best to you, your mom and your daughther! Yes, let's do it again! Cheers!

Holiday weekend in Montreal started right on time. Chantal was able to deliver exactly what we wanted. Her interest in the city she loves but also genuine interest her client requests made for a special day. If you need more than walk, point and click than Chantal is your lady. PS. Chantal also took time to provide tips and discuss options for the rest of our holiday.

Jerry FisherUnited States
We give the highest rating to Chantall. She really knows her stuff and is a pleasure to spend the afternoon with. Her tour made all the difference for our stay in Montreal. Without it, we wouldn't have appreciated the city like we did. Highly recommend Chantall!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mr Fisher! I greatly appreciate your super comment and "highest rating"! THANK YOU! It was a lovely moment for me too and I'm glad I could make a difference for your stay in Montreal! That's the idea of a private tour! Please say hello to your wife for me! Kind regards, Chantal
Sherry LundeenUnited States
Chantal was a great guide! Very knowledgeable regarding historical facts. She also made some suggestions for us regarding things to see and do later in the week that were very helpful. We would all recommend Chantal as a tour leader.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mrs Lundeen, Thanks for your nice review. I was a pleasure meeting the 4 of you! Kind regards, Chantal
Chantal went beyond what a normal tour guide would do. It was my wife's 49th birthday and together we put together the perfect day for her. Chantal assisted with restaurants, photographer, even entertainment for our lunch near the St Lawerance. Chantal arranged for a birthday cake and built a special bond with my wife. On our next trip, we hope to take Chantal out for dinner. As she is now like family! My wife's 49th is one of her all-time favorite birthday's thanks to Chantal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr Dickson, I will also remember your beautiful wife's B-day because something special, like magic, came into this moment with every actors (musician and photograph) and the set up and particularly your wife's spontaneity and happiness made it all fall into it's place. You are a wonderful husband in love with his wife and you are both very lucky to share this love since a long time. Meeting both of you was a real pleasure! Thanks so much for your great rating and nice comment! Hello to your wife! Chantal
John MacDonaldMinneapolis, MINNESOTA, United States
We thought Chantal was simply fabulous, and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hour tour of Montreal! She picked us up at our hotel and we spent the next 3 hours exploring Montreal, both old and new! She is very knowledgable and her sense of humor is refreshing! We had a ball with her and highly recommend her! John and Kris Minneapolis, Minnesota
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr MacDonald !!! I'm glad you've enjoyed my tour. Your hotel being located in the downtown of Montreal, the tour was customised with this extra walk on the way down towards the old city. It is always a plus that people appreciate. I've enjoyed both of your company and I know you are on your way to Quebec so have a great time over there! Please say hello to your lovely wife and again THANK YOU for this great review. Stay safe! Kind regards, Chantal

Luis M.United States
Chantal gave us a very well organized tour of the city within the time that we had. She is extremely knowledgeable and obviously passionate about the city. Although we were OK with the tour being in English, it was a pleasant surprise that she dominates Spanish as well, which is our first language. She kept a good paste, but at the same time was willing to slow down when we required for pictures or just admiring parts of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr Montes, it was such a peasure to meet you and your wife! Thanks for your rating, for your kind words and for evaluating my Spanish as it is my third language and I love it ... as you could see! I guess you are back home in your beautifull Puerto Rico so let me say ... hasta luego! Chantal
Henry LiebermanUnited States
Chantal was outstanding in every respect. Extremely knowledgeable, flexible and excellent English skills.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr Lieberman for your kind words! It was a real pleasure meeting you, your wife and your longtime friends. It was also a lot of fun driving you around Montreal. I'm glad you've enjoyed! Wishing you all the best! Chantal

El tour que hicimos con Chantal fue una caminata por el viejo Montreal, conocimos un poco de la historia de la ciudad y además, habla muy bien español. Muy recomendable!!!

David YagerUnited States
We all very much enjoyed the tour of Montreal and especially Chantal's insight into the city now and in the past. Despite the rainy weather Chantal was undaunted in her quest to provide an informative and friendly experience for us and we greatly appreciated it. Catching a bit of the DeGaul event and having a chance meeting a local Montrealer and world traveler who is recently back from decades in China as an immigration attorney was great as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr Yager! The celebration of the historical De Gaule event : his speach at Montreal City Hall that took place 50 years ago, only happen once and we were there!!! It was in fact, very special! The four of you are good travelers who don't let the rain affect the fun of walking a city!! Bravo! As you mentioned, maybe you can't immigrate but keep in mind that you can always visit !!! Cheers! Chantal
Excelent tour, Chantal is a kind person and his knowledge about Montreal is awesome. We strongly recomended her specially if like us you need a tour in Spanish. Best Regards Horacio and Claudia
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr Vitullo, Spending time with you and your lovely wife was a real pleasure. I'm glad you've enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks for confirming that my Spanish is fluent! �� I'm greatfull about the 5 stars! Wow! Thank you so much! All the best for your future discoveries! Chantal
