The Original Non-Touristy Montreal Street Art Tour
We meet in the borough with the highest concentration of artists on the strip where a massive mural festival is held yearly. We're going to be hitting the streets of the Plateau Mont-Royal to check out anywhere between 20 - 30 works of art. The murals range from 2 - 9 storeys tall. We'll be learning about the artists, the message and different techniques as well as about Montreal street art and graffiti scene. We'll take to the smaller back streets and alleyways to cover some hidden gems and just might witness some live work. Here we will discover some installations and different types of guerilla art as well as get to know some of our graffiti writers and crews a bit better. This experience is great for locals, visitors, team building and private groups. Really anyone who likes pretty things and learning about one of the city’s subcultures. At the end of the experience we'll be handing you a list of recommendations for watering holes, local designer shopping, cool art galleries and the best food. The essentials of travel, quoi. Ask your guide to point out other great street art locations to continue on your own.

Works range from 2-9 storeys tall! Off to the entertainment district where the biggest festivals out there take centre stage before checking out the waterfront from a hidden spot by the port. Next is the Gaybourhood. Lively, wild, a pedestrian mall all summer long great for people watching. The main strip houses art installations, music performances and great drag bars. Picnic in a local park with a craft beer is next because... always. Last bit we pedal by typical streets with baroque balconies, winding staircases, mansarded roofs and beautiful green alleyways. We'll hit up a few more parks before we get back to the shop to share with you a list of recommendations for craft beer, local designer shopping, COOL art galleries and the best food. The essentials of travel, quoi. Other things to note: Make sure you bring a bottle of water and dress appropriately, sunscreen wouldn't hurt!

Welcome to MTL's Nightlife Playground
Montreal has one of the most vibrant and exciting nightlife scenes in the world! In other words, there's something for everyone! My experience is broken into two elements: planning your social activities and taking you out. After booking the experience, we will arrange a 20min call where we will get acquainted and I will learn more about your interests/tastes. I will then proceed to make restaurant, guestlist and table reservations, as well as organize any complementary services (cabs, limousine, photographers etc) for the entirety of your stay (not just for the night out). The night out is not a pub crawl... You'll notice group sizes are limited to 6. This is because my tour is intimate and exclusive. I focus on connecting with everyone and making sure that the tour is tailored to their interests. This requires more organization on my part, as I prepare multiple itineraries for the night. Also, given the exclusivity of some of the locations, large groups would not be permitted entry. We will start the night by getting to know each other over an intimate drink at one of Montreal's coolest speakeasy bars. Next, I'll take you to a hip and trendy bar in the area to give you a taste of the vibrant and eclectic night scene of Montreal. Finally, we'll go to an exclusive club in the Old Port or St. Laurent area, depending on where the best event of the night is happening.

Dive into lgbtq history on the Montréal Queerstory Tour
On the Montréal QUEERSTORY tour you'll dive right into the personal stories (we name names!) of when Montréal's LGBTQ2+ neighbourhood was on the west side of town. Picture it, Montréal, 1960s to 1990s: Women's lib and gay rights, activism and partying, sex, drugs and police violence. Along the course of this walking tour, your professional guide will make you discover the spots where every group in the L-G-B-T-Q-2+ communities had their struggles and their victories. See where men were first legally allowed to dance with other men, learn about the boycott that lead lesbians to organize their way to emancipation, find out why Montréal nightlife was the sh*t and hear about the dreadful consequences of what they once called "the worst of crimes". You'll never see the city the same way again, and you'll never take for granted the liberties and rights that queer people in Montréal enjoy today.
