Hi, my name is May, like the best breezy through out the whole year, with hopes and brightness. Tour guide has always been my dream job since I was a littler girl, and personally I love travelling from deep of my heart. Being passionate, is the top secret of enjoying my job and making my customers feel as happy as me, but never suffering from both sides. Life is short, let's appreciate what life offers us and what's happening for the moment.
I've been working as a tour guide for years, at the very beginning I only worked with the big groups facing at least 50 visitors at a time, taking care of everyone, handling all the events and sometimes the anticipates. It's not easy, but I still love it, coz being a troubleshooting is exciting, especially when I could see the smiles on my clients' face, I feel great.
Then, as time goes by, as some of my clients’ and friends’ requests, I began to work as a private tour guide as well, customizing the tours as they need, adjusting the pace, the rhythm and the activities as their capabilities, it's quite interesting. I'm pretty sure if you travel with me, we could get along very well.
I live in Montreal which is founded in 1642, it’s an island like a lost pearl, as a bilingual immigrant city, living here is kind of exciting, coz we may mix up different languages in a single phrase when we’re talking, French, English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, etc.
Montreal used to be the biggest city in Canadian history, it’s the only city who has held the summer Olympic Games in Canada, it also served as the capital city once. There’re countless attractions on the island, some places you should never miss, like, one of the largest dome churches in the world (Saint Joseph's Oratory), Notre Dame Basilica, Old port, Gay Village, Saint Catherine Street, Little Italy, Mont Royal, Olympic centre, Biodome, La Ronde, the Museum of Fine Arts, McGill University, and so on and so on.
When you visit the city, don’t forget to try the most famous provincial food Poutine! I can’t wait to take you to the best restos to taste it and the best smoke beef which is running by the famous singer Celine Dion. If your visit will be just in time for a parade, like Saint Patric’s Day, Zombie Parade, Saint Papa Parade, etc, I’d like to bring you to the spot too!
As Canada is famous for its high quality wine, especially ice wine, I’d like to tell you there’re always some good wineries waiting for your exploration, thanks to the typical weather conditions, the wineries in Quebec province and in Niagara region are the best. Another high reputation product is the maple syrup, the best ones are also from Quebec province. If you couldn’t make a decision for souvenirs, don’t be shy, just ask me!
Though I live in Montreal, I can still guide the tours in other cities, for example the tours I guide all the time in other cities:
* Quebec City (the fortification of the old city, the Fairmont Frontenac Hotel, the Montmorency Waterfall which is 30 meters higher than Niagara Waterfalls, in winter time experience the dog sledding, ice hotel, sugar shack, etc.),
* Ottawa (the Parliament Hill, the Centennial fire, the Byward Market, etc. )
* Toronto (CN Tower, Center station, Royal Ontario Museum, City Hall, the Distillery district, Toronto University, etc.)
* Niagara Waterfalls region (in summer time, taking the cruise to appreciate the amazing views, visiting Marineland, etc. in winter, experiencing the journey behind the falls, visiting the Skylon Tower, taking a chance in the casinos, etc.)
* Kingston (the most ancient capital city of Canada, Queen's University, etc.)
* To the east of Canada, those so called maritimes, summer is always the best season, whale watching cruise, lobster feasts, etc.
As Montreal is quite near to the US--Canadian border, I take my clients to visit NewYork through out the whole year, especially for the New Year’s Eve counting down in Time Square. I love NYC, a busy city of luxury life, I'd like to say IF YOU LOVE SOMEONE, TAKE HIM/HER TO NEWYORK, IF YOU HATE SOMEONE, TAKE HIM/HER TO NEWYORK.
There're too much things to explore in NYC, one day is definitely not enough, at least you need to save three, four days, let's visit Manhattan island, Liberty Statue (cruise/ island), One World Trade Centre, Empire Building, Time Square, Brooklyn Bridge, Wall Street, Central Park, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Broadway theatre…
I know almost all the short cuts, just follow me, walking through the centre of the centre of NYC, well, only if you're willing to stretch your body! I know the best restos from corner to corner!
Tell me where you wanna visit, what you need, I won't let you down, I'll customize your trip full of shinning moments......
As it's impossible to write down all my experiences here, if you'd like to know more about me, let's talk! Looking forward to meet you guys! Love you!
