Frederick was most enjoyable and knowledgeable about his native city Montreal. We thought we were supposed to stop at the incredible St. Joseph cathedral. Otherwise, we made all the routine stops. A fun time.

The driver, Norman. He brought the tour to life. The tour was a great way for us to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary while getting a good picture of Toronto.

Under the Surface of Montreal's Chinatown: Guided Food Walking Tour
The Chinese market...would have loved to spend more time there. I would suggest to have the visit at the market at the end of the tour, that way there would be no need to carry our produce etc. for the entire tour.
