Adam KaiserNew York, NY, United States
Louis was a great guide -- taking us to all the sites and then (we requested this) to see how ordinary Montrealers live. He took us to his neighborhood, for example, and showed us a local church and local shops, including his favorite bakery. He is especially knowledgeable about local architecture, showing us unusual buildings and beautiful neighborhoods and explained the history of each in detail. Just a wonderful day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Adam, this was an equally pleasant day for me as well. I'm glad I met all of you. You're such a wonderful family !! Enjoy your visit to Québec City !! Louis P.
I found him to be perceptive, to be kind and nice, attentive, friendly and very knowledgeable. He did a good sharing. He was also a good driver. Overall he is a first class individual.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ken, and so were you. I'm glad we shared these very valuable hours together. Hope you the best -for you and you wife.

Very enjoyable tour with Louis. We learned a lot about the architecture and the evolution of the city. Louis kept a perfect pace. He is easy to understand and maintains the right volume for a street tour. We covered a lot of history and territory in our 3 hours. He was very happy to make dining and shopping recommendations as well as recommending other activities. We definitely recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jim !!! I had a great time with all of you !! Here's a link about a subject we discussed : https://montrealconflict.wordpress.com/6-the-american-invasion-of-montreal/ Louis P.

Louis is an engaging, friendly and well informed guide. He gave us the history of Old Montreal and explained and showed us how the styles of architecture had changed through the years as well as how the city developed.

Joe BledsoeUnited States
Louis met us at our hotel on time, and we proceeded to have an enjoyable and educational three hour walking tour of Old Montreal. In fact, Louis stayed with us about an additional 30 minutes because he wasn't finished with the entire tour. Louis knows Montreal and its history; he knew many people around the city; he is very friendly and enjoyable; and the rest of our stay in Montreal was much richer because of the history and stories he shared with us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Joe, I'm happy to learn that my contribution helped to make your trip to Montreal more enjoyable !! I had great time with you !! Louis P.

Mary Beth SchultzUnited States
Louis was an interesting and informative tour guide. He did his job well. He was assigned to us when our original guide was injured and could not keep our tour date. The great tour we had speaks to Louis's flexibility and to the excellent service provided by Tours by Locals. We have booked tours through TBL in the past and intend to continue to use their services in the future when available. We have never had a bad guide and will hope for more like Louis.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mary, many thanks. I'm glad you appreciated my services. Have a great life !!! Best regards to your friends !! Louis P.
Harry B.United States
We had one day to visit Montreal and were pleased to have Louis guide us through this wonderful city. Louis was a wealth of knowledge about the history of Canada as well as Montreal. He tailored our tour to not only show us the highlights of the city, but also show us some of the more unusual places where tourists would normally not go or see. You can't go wrong with Louis as your guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to take you around the city !! It'll be a pleasure to see you again if ever you make it back to our wonderful city !! Have a nice summer !!

Louis is very knowledgeable about Old Montreal's history and architecture. His English is excellent. He brings to life the monuments and public spaces of the old town. And he knows just the right spot to take a break (our request) for a cup of espresso.

Louis was fabulous! My family had a great time in old Montreal. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He is also very patient and waited for us to take pictures and answered all of our questions. Louis is also very good with children. He engaged our children by asking them questions and playing trivia which keep them motivated and alert. They all told me they had a great time. Louis made sure that we hit all the places we wanted to see and went above and beyond what we expected. Merci, Louis!
