Funny Guide!

5 5 1
The tour guide was funny and very knowledgeable. I learned a lot about the history, architecture, and culture. He had many recommendations where to go after the tour as well. This tour was more of a history tour with samples of food tasting compared to other food tours I've been on, but they all represented the flavors of Montreal with mixed cultures. I really enjoyed it. It was a hot day, and I wish I had brought a bottle of water with me with all that walking.
