Overall this was a hood tour and we saw a lot. I enjoyed the stop and chance to look around notre dame. There was some really nice history shared. My only concern is some of it was wrong….the American colonies were not french in the 1760’s….if they were, the usa fought and defeated the wrong country for independence. I know it must be hard to get the sound right in the motor coach for everyone to hear but it was defeaning.

Norman was entertaining, informative, hardworking, and helpful all tour long. As someone who had never been to Montreal before, this was a great tour to learn some basics about the city, it's history, and get recommendations on other things to check out.

Norman was a fantastic tour guide with great knowledge and recommendations. I had sciatica and couldn’t walk a lot and this was perfect for me with a few stops and short walks and the rest on the bus. Plus a great overview of the whole city in a few hours.

Our tour guide, Norman, was great. He was very knowledgeable and funny. He and my husband were bantering back and forth about hockey teams, which made it even more entertaining for my husband. We passed/stopped by all of the major places in Montreal and I felt like we were given quite a bit of history about the city. Norman also gave recommendations on where to shop and eat in Old Montreal. Great tour and worth the money.

This is an excellent way to see Montreal and all it has to offer. Richard (guide) and Frank(driver) made a dynamic duo in ensuring the tour was comprehensive. Informative and safe. This tour is well worth the time and money and perhaps one of the best ways to get an overview of the history of this great city!
