We had a fabulous tour with Francoise. She is intelligent, well read and great fun . The time sped by and we didn't even notice the cold,we were so absorbed in her descriptive history , culminating in a breathtaking visit to The Basilica . Well done Francoise You are great !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Andrew and Caroline, for your kind words. The cold didn't seem to phase you at all. You have the tough skin of Canadians! I had a very enjoyable time with you both and am very glad to read that Notre Dame Basilica met your expectations. Its reputation is certainly not exaggerated. Hope to see you again next time you are in Canada. Happy New Year.

Many tour guides are capable of providing interesting commentary and a knowledge of the geography and landscape. Francoise embraced us as "new friends" from the moment we met. She was warm, attentive, and flexible, while providing the sure backdrop of her knowledge and experience. My husband and I were both charmed and enlightened by Francoise!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ann, Thanks so much for your kind words. It truly was a fun tour, and I much enjoyed showing you around our city. Safe travels. Françoise

Francoise was excellent. She gave us the history and color of Montreal. Our tour was during a rainy morning but she made adjustments to keep us as dry as possible while still giving us exposure to old Montreal. I highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Timothy, Thanks so much for the kind words. They are much appreciated. I really enjoyed our tour together; we certainly made the most of it despite the rain. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and will come back to Montreal some time. Have a great fall. Sincerely, Françoise

Our tour guide, Francoise, gave us a wonderful experience sampling many of the cultural and historical delights of Montreal. She had a lovely presence and tremendous energy and impressed us with her knowledge of the "duality" of Montreal, its derivation, tradition, and expression. She clearly loves this city and enjoys showing its many treasures to visitors. She was very accommodating to our needs and desire to get an overview of Vieux Montreal before we began a fuller all-day exploration.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you both for making this tour such a pleasurable one for me. I so enjoy bragging about my city, and it was a double-pleasure, since it was an opportunity to let you practice your French at the same time. Your review is much appreciated. I hope to have a chance to show you around another part of Montreal on a future trip to our fair city. Keep well. Bon été.
