Great tour of the chateau! We took the 3:00 tour in English. We had a small group and our guide was very engaging. Despite the hotel being crowded for the holiday season we were able to move about easily and enjoyed learning about the history of the chateau and Quebec.

Very good experience, guide David is very kind, good explanations and support. Electric bycicle is easy to use. I recomend.

Tour guide Andy was very helpful in helping your members to take photos and he explains each part very well.

How adorable are the cobblestone streets of Montreal. Thanks for the fun Explorial.

Oh god, I can’t stop laughing at the photo challenge. Recommend this app.
