Tailor made tour by Marie
I had a wonderful private tour with Marie on a rainy morning in Montreal. I mentioned to Marie that I was interested in history and architecture and she indeed focused on these topics in a walk of the old quarter. She immediately sensed my level of knowledge and adapted the tour on the fly providing more in depth information on the history of Montreal. The tour was very interactive; more of a conversation than a conventional "tour". Marie is bright and energetic and passionate about her work. I found her to be delightful and personable and I enjoyed our three hours spent together enormously. Marie left me with a map of our route and I was able to recreate the tour with my husband a couple of days later telling him the stories that Marie shared with me.
The tour with Marie was one of the highlights of my time in Montreal. I highly recommend her.

Wonderful introduction to Montreal
This was our first trip to Montreal so it was lovely to meet someone like Marie whose love of Montreal shone through. She excellently guided us through Old Montreal telling numerous stories. Our tour seemed to fly by and by the end we had a great insight into Montreal. Well recommended.

Marie is a great guide!
We booked two tours with Marie: the walking tour of old Montréal and the underground Montréal. She was really professional, on time, made great suggestions for restaurants and things to do that we did not consider before we arrived in Montréal. We changed our plans based on her advice, and everything she recommended was spot on. If you are here in October take the garden of lights tour as she recommended. Plus she has a wonderful spirit and personality! And is fun. Don’t miss her tours! Outstanding guide!
