See what others miss. A great guide, very articulate and knowlledgeable, brings you outside the beaten track to see another side of the city. Great time!

“Great walking tour”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

Marc Andre was very helpful with his walking tour in Old Montreal. He gave us a good taste of what it used to be and what it is today. Bravo!

“See a different side of Montreal”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Easy to sign up, a friendly, well-informed guide, and sights seen that we probably would not have found had we not been on the tour. Street art, a somewhat underground warehouse art space, a trip through UQAM's design campus, among other things, capped by a rooftop snack and a glass of wine. Great way to spend a beautiful day in the Latin Quarter!

“Great experience!”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

My husband and I took the Old Montreal Discovery walking tour, and had a fantastic time. Our guide, Marc-André, was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Since we were the only two people on the tour, we were able to interrupt and ask questions whenever we wanted, which would have been difficult (or at least somewhat obnoxious) had there been others on the tour. I particularly appreciated that we got to learn about things that aren't the typical tourist attractions; after all, I can read about them anywhere. Overall, it was a great introduction to Old Montreal's history and culture, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in getting to know the neighbourhood, rather than simply taking a picture of tourist attractions.
