We loved our walking tour of Old Montreal...we saw things we would have never come upon, noticed, or visited...and our guide, Pierre, was great and patient with us...
we learned to dress very much for the conditions outside as it is mostly outside...
we'd definitely recommend it!

Christmas Walking Tour in Old Montreal
My friends and I did this walk in the evening on December 7th and we had a great time! We were in and out of several buildings, so the cold was not a problem. Isabelle, our guide, gave the tour in English, and she checked to make sure everyone was comfortable and having a good tour. She was always open to questions and comments, and was very informative, and also very engaging and entertaining. We arrived at the location a few minutes early, and two guides arrived because 27 people had reserved the tour! I was pleased that they broke us up into small manageable groups - good planning on their part! All in all, this was a very successful evening, and I'll be looking for other options from this company for my next visit to Montreal.
