overall, a good tour with a nice virw of old montreal and its history! but, the first clue with the boats is wrong. there are more than 2. and the last clue, its not clear that the written text to follow is english. there’s also a lottle clunkiness in the storytelling. theres two storylines, the man in the read coat and climate change. It could use refining, but it has serious potential!
