Thank you for the city tour. We enjoyed it very much. The tour was both in English and French, which was a surprise to us. We thought and expected the tour in English only. We got a good glimpse of the city during the tour. Thank you.

The trip was very informative and enjoyable. It tells you about history of the city and major incidents and important buildings and monuments in Montreal. If you don’t know anything about the city, this is a great opportunity.

This tour was amazing! Both the tour guide and driver where really friendly and knowledgeable about the city. It was fun, easy to go trough and comfortable. Definitely recommend it!

Our guide Francois was very knowledgeable and professional. Learned alot and got to experience parts of Montreal we would not have visited.

Nothing to tell it's pretty straight forward and our guide was excellent
