Bonjour-Hi! I'm Lesley. The best way to visit a city is with a local. Even better with a super passionate one = me. As a lifelong Montrealer, I know the city inside and out. I'm an avid walker and photography enthusiast and spend my free time exploring Montreal on foot and capturing city scenes with my camera. I studied Tourism in college which led me to a rich and varied career in the local Montreal tourism industry. I love showing visitors around and my passion for all things Montreal encouraged me to obtain my official certification and permit as a licensed Montreal tourist guide in 2017 (you're in good hands!). I love meeting visitors from around the world and I hope you'll join me in discovering my hometown :-)

Lesley’s your is a great way to get familiar with the old part of Montréal. She is fun, engaging, welcoming, and a great source of information! I’d absolutely take another tour led by her!

Amazing tour. Lesley was very knowledgeable, kind, and passionate. We loved hearing about the history of the city, architecture, and art. It was nice to learn the history of buildings that we could've easily passed by without noticing. We entered some buildings to see the inside, which we would't have done if we were traveling alone. We also appreciated how Lesley acknowledged Indigenous lands during the tour, which we thought was very important. She also provided us with a list of more places to visit - it was a nice touch. Merci, Lesley!

I had a wonderful experience going on this walking tour. Lesley was very kind, knowledgeable and funny. She was happy to answer many different questions about the city and provided lots of fun facts and recommendations to ensure that everyone was laughing, intrigued and having a good time. I really appreciated that she asked if we were comfortable, warm, even on a sunny (but chilly) day! Thanks for the great time, Lesley! 😊
