A friend did mention to me the possibility to have a guided tour to discover a selection of the murals in downtown Montreal. I was well inspired to follow her. Good point for outdoor guided tour these days, both for the givers and the receivers: they are still allowed! In these dark covid times it’s really a nice surprise. Not to mention that Danny – our guide on the last Wednesday of 2020 – was pretty entertaining, knowledgeable and quickly created a nice group atmosphere among us visitors.
The best local guided tours are given by real locals. You know your guide knows his topic when just strolling around a few blocks with him – it was winter for my first tour – you think you know you have quickly got lost as your guide introduces you to a new world you didn’t suspect.
I can’t wait for the summer to arrive or at least the snow to melt because it means other explorations with pink bikes, other angles to discover Montreal, more street-art for sure but also tours to discover the food culture of Montreal. After more than three years, I still haven’t tasted all the addresses in my recommandation list. Challenge accepted.
