Ruby was terrific. I couldn't find my phone for her to call me, but she found us at the terminal. She had a vehicle large enough for our luggage and helped us check in to our hotel before taking us on a delightful tour of Montreal. If we are ever back there we would definitely try and have her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marv for your kind words. I look forward to seeing you again in Montreal.

We toured with Ruby for 2 days (see review on Food Tour of Montreal). Ruby is very conscious of the needs of everyone in the touring group (we had 6) and ensures all are included. Ruby knows many "secret" places in Montreal and ensures her group is not stuck in long waiting lines. She speaks English, French and a half a dozen other languages fluently. Our group thought she was the "best guide ever".

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joy Those places are secret to us, nobody is to know where I brought you hahaha Thank you for the kind words... Looking forward to seeing you again Bizou Ruby

Our criteria for a guide include : depth of knowledge for the subject of the tour, passion for the subject, ability to communicate, planning of time, flexibility, consideration of clients and charm (yes, charm, so important for a guide) Ruby gets a five start rating for all of these. We went to places tourist don't normally see. We were delighted by the food we tastes and the sights we saw. Ruby helped us see Montreal through her eyes. Wow! We loved it. Touring Montreal? Do it with Ruby.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joy Thank you :) I don't like doing dishes...I always need an assistance you can always help with this. Look forward to seeing you again Bizou. Two kisses on the cheeks to all of you Ruby

The tour began on time, and the transportation was comfortable. The first thing Ruby did was ask about us and our wish list for sights. She was knowledgeable, gave plenty of information. She was friendly and had a sense of humor. We were able to see and visit sights we had not even considered. We really had a great time. Afterwards she may herself available to answer follow up suggestions for us to visit on our own, and great places to eat. Insider tips. I would recommend Ruby to others absolutely.

Ruby is without a doubt quite literally a local GEM! She was born and raised in Montreal but has made a career of traveling and speaks a multitude of languages. She is witty and knowledgeable and just a pleasure to tour the city with. We did the old Montreal tour but she does food and bike tours, custom tours, event planning, and is quite a renaissance woman. A wealth of information and just an A plus experience. You'd be lucky to grab her for a tour during the season.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Shari. Enjoy your weekend and looking forward to seeing you again

We spent 2.5days with Ruby exploring Montreal on foot and using public transport. We learned much history, saw neighborhoods and how people live day-to-day, visited markets and tasted food, and heard many personal stories. Traveling with Ruby gets you into places the vast majority of people will never see. Ruby knows everyone. Great touring experience with an exceptional guide.

Ruby was an amazing tour guide. Comments from our group were "that is the best tour I've ever had". Ruby took us on an educational, thoughtful experience of Montreal that we would never have had - she was so knowledgeable and Montreal should be as proud of Ruby as she is of Montreal. Her passion for her hometown was evident throughout the whole tour. Don't miss a tour with Ruby in Montreal!
