Had the best tour with Lesley! Everything was great. From the moment she introduced herself, to the interesting and humorous facts and stories to the list of helpful suggestions on what to do/see/eat/drink for the rest of our stay. I would recommend anyone visiting Montreal to book a tour with Lesley! She’s a born and bred local who was so friendly and made us feel so welcome in her city!!

Great tour with an outstanding guide

Lesley was an outstanding guide. Very friendly and engaging. Excellent tour of the Old Town filled with great historical information and stories. Well paced. At the end of our tour, Lesley provided a sheet with recommended restaurants, cafes, bars and other places to explore plus a beautiful post card to take as a souvenir. Very professional guide. She sent a follow up email that afternoon inviting any questions. I asked about directions to the Allan Institute and she responded with detailed instructions about how to get to the mansion as well as a suggested itinerary of other sights to explore nearby. It formed another beautiful day of sightseeing for us in Montreal. Truly above and beyond. Outstanding customer service from an excellent guide. Highly recommend Lesley of MTL DeTours.

She was extremely responsive prior to the tour and even followed up after the tour with additional suggestions and ideas for our visit. It was a nice way to spend a crisp, beautiful morning in Montreal! We highly recommend taking Lesley's tour of Old Montreal!

Lesley was a wonderful tour guide. She was personable and friendly and extremely knowledgeable about her home city of Montreal. She showed us the main places and some off the beaten track kind of places which really added to the whole wonderful experience. I recommend Lesley wholeheartedly if you are searching for a tour of Montreal. Sharon Campbell

Lesley is very knowledgeable and you can tell she is very excited and passionate about her tours! I was on vacation with my family and everyone really enjoyed it. She does a great job of explaining all of the history and culture of Montreal, but adds in her recommendations for food, bars, etc.

Lesley was a fantastic tour guide, walking us through the architecture, history, and social and economic development of Montréal while highlighting must visit cafés, bakeries, bars, and restaurants along the way. She was inclusive, energetic, and very passionate, and frequently checked in with the tour to adjust and tailor as needed. After the tour she gave a list of restaurant and bar recommendations, and we followed up on several and loved them! Would highly recommend.
