I live in Montreal. I took the tour to learn more of my city. It was a great tour. I took it on June 30, 2018 in English. I learnt about different places and was amazed by the knowledge of my guide.

Our tour guide, Christian, was so knowledgeable and gave us a thorough tour. Considering the tour is free, definitely worth checking out, especially if you have an interest in art and culture.

The tour was well organized. Booking in advance is advisable. This is an interesting part of the city and getting to know historical and cultural facts about it is a great idea, even if you come from Montreal.
