I recently had the pleasure of participating in the "The Real Montreal, Both Above and Below" tour with the extraordinary guide, Jean-Robert. From start to finish, the experience was nothing short of exceptional, immersing me in the rich tapestry of this vibrant city. Jean-Robert's passion for Montreal was palpable from the moment we gathered at the meeting point. His warm and friendly demeanor immediately put the group at ease, fostering a sense of camaraderie among us fellow adventurers. It was evident that he possessed an intricate knowledge of Montreal's history, culture, and hidden gems, which he effortlessly shared throughout the tour. As we embarked on our journey, Jean-Robert's storytelling skills brought Montreal's past to life, painting vivid pictures in our minds. His captivating narratives seamlessly blended historical facts with local anecdotes, offering a multifaceted perspective of the city's evolution. It was truly fascinating to learn about the architectural wonders, famous landmarks, and the lesser-known aspects that make Montreal so unique. One of the highlights of the tour was Jean-Robert's ability to engage the group. He encouraged questions and willingly shared his expertise, making us feel like active participants rather than passive spectators. His enthusiasm was infectious, and it created an atmosphere of enthusiasm and curiosity among us. Moreover, Jean-Robert's professionalism and organizational skills were commendable. His attention to detail ensured that each member of the group felt included and engaged throughout the tour. I cannot recommend Jean-Robert and the "The Real Montreal, Both Above and Below" tour enough. Whether you are a local seeking to rediscover your city or a visitor eager to delve into Montreal's hidden treasures, this tour is an absolute must. Jean-Robert's passion, knowledge, and engaging personality make him the ultimate guide, ensuring an unforgettable experience for all. Thank you, Jean-Robert, for sharing your love for Montreal with us and giving us an enchanting glimpse into its past and present. I left the tour with a newfound appreciation for this incredible city and its fascinating history.

Jean-Robert was a really amazing tour guide! He showed us around Montréal in a way you wouldn't otherwise do as a tourist. Felt like when you'd visit your uncle and he showing you his favourite places in the city. Excellent tour! Merci!
