The tour was excellent. Unfortunately, although advertised as part of the tour online, we were not able to visit inside Norte Dame cathedral. Perhaps there should be an adjustment.

Very knowledgeable, personable guide. Small group allowed for a steady pace… not a wasted moment!. Good orientation…I feel confident walking the city after the walk.

Learned so much about old Montreal. Our tour guide had a good projecting voice. 14 people in our tour group. Took 90 minutes.
