This was an amazing experience. Great way to know about the rich cultural heritage and places to visit in Montreal and Quebec. Our driver/tour guide Norman was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He ket us engaged all through the trip by telling us about the history, importance of each place we visited, the famous streets to visit, various settlements and cultures, etc. This trip was well worth the money.
