We were pleasantly surprised when we discovered that we were two of only three people taking this tour today. The tour was provided in an extremely comfortable and new SUV with an absolutely amazing tour guide named Mounir who went out of his way to ensure we received the best tour possible. Mounir tailored the tour especially for us and with his wealth of knowledge made this the best tour we’ve ever taken. It was like having your own personal chauffeur. The tour lasted almost an hour longer than advertised and included additional points of interest not normally included. We were definitely spoiled and greatly appreciate Mounir’s passion in ensuring we had the grand tour of the amazing City of Montreal. Thank you so much!!

After our plans for the day were rained out we booked a last minute private tour of the Montreal. We were picked up at our hotel and began an entertaining and informative tour of the city. Four hours later we returned with an understanding of what Montreal was and has evolved into. We were treated to panoramic views, close-ups of Montreal's neighbourhoods, the beauty of St. Joseph's Church and the impressive knowledge of our guide Mounir. Our tour for four took place in a comfortable private automobile with several stops which allowed us to get a close up look at some of Montreal's wonderful attractions. We all felt this tour was one of the highlites of our trip. Thank you again Mounir.

Munir was such a knowledgeable guide. He knew so much history of everywhere we went. The car was very nice and clean, plus he was a great driver. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent tour, we enjoyed all of the sites listed, and learned so much from Mounir. 3 hours is a perfect timeframe, I highly recommend this tour.

Well worth the money. Excellent over view of Montreal Our guide was very informative and welcoming.
