After our plans for the day were rained out we booked a last minute private tour of the Montreal. We were picked up at our hotel and began an entertaining and informative tour of the city. Four hours later we returned with an understanding of what Montreal was and has evolved into. We were treated to panoramic views, close-ups of Montreal's neighbourhoods, the beauty of St. Joseph's Church and the impressive knowledge of our guide Mounir. Our tour for four took place in a comfortable private automobile with several stops which allowed us to get a close up look at some of Montreal's wonderful attractions. We all felt this tour was one of the highlites of our trip. Thank you again Mounir.

This tour was so interesting and informative. It left me wanting to get better acquainted with the interesting people, places and rich history of beautiful Montréal. Mounir was an amazing tour guide! One can tell that he loves what he does and his knowledge, patience and kindness are unsurpassed.

Mounir was our tour guide, and he was absolutely delightful. He was friendly, patient and informative. The route was well thought out, and we enjoyed learning the culture, history and background of the city. Very glad that we went for the tour, strongly recommend.

Guide was informational and very patient with us .Timing was well planned-nothing rushed but saw a lot. He answered all our questions and let us speak to each other.Obviously proud of his country.

Excellent tour, we enjoyed all of the sites listed, and learned so much from Mounir. 3 hours is a perfect timeframe, I highly recommend this tour.
