It was an AWESOME tour Christmas Walking Tour in Old Montreal. Tonight Dec 20/19. We were late as we got lost and our Guide was kind and treated us well. My name is Hazel Reid and had my daughter & her son and her daughter & partner and baby. We all fully enjoyed the time he spent with us and explaining things over and over. Hopefully I can come to Montreal and get a daylight tour I want to see so much more. Loved, Loved it

Learned a lot on a cold night
, Dec 2018
It was great to learn about the architecture, history, and some of the flavor of old Montreal. Our tour guide presented clearly and answered questions. The night was quite cold and the tour was mostly outside, She was creative in finding a warmer interior when we were all half frozen! The one thing that was a bit misleading was the title (Christmas Walking ...) and attached holiday image. The tour was perhaps 50% of that and 50% history. Well done but we expected more of the holiday end of things.

I was disappointed in this, it was more a walking tour of Old Montreal showing you architecture and history which just happened to be at Christmas. I felt the tour description was misleading and was too early in the season as the guide said a lot of the Christmas stuff was not up yet. If this had been sold as a nighttime walk in the old town, I would still have taken it but as I say it was misleading. The tour guide Pierre was informative and knowledgable but even he struggled to fill the time.

I did this tour December 7th. The guide was pleasant, however did not tell us that the craft market we ended up in front of was closed until we were standing in front of it at the end of the tour. I had read the advertisement that said we ended up at the craft market and were looking forward to this

A wonderful way to explore Old Montreal during the holidays! Though it was a bitterly cold night (-14c!) our guide made the tour possible by keeping us inside as much as possible. We explored the historic shopping arcades and beautiful buildings of Montreal and learned about the history of Christmas and the influence of the church in this fascinating region of Canada. Our guide was informative, friendly and fun - we even finished the tour with some delicious cheese and wine! Thoroughly recommended.

The guide was knowledgeable and provided numerous anecdotes; tour dominated by architecture mostly of former banks. The tour ended in a gift shop at Bonsecours. It would have been interesting to include some explanation of First Nation and other traditional crafts that were on sale at the shop.
