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!

Needs improvement! it makes you go back and forward when there could be some many other things. Some instructions are not well written and some of the answers doesn’t make sense. You don’t really explore “Vieux Port”
