Tour of Old-Montréal with a local in a convertible Cadillac
Let me be your friend in Montreal and show you how the city should be done, by one of its residents, not a tour company. My tours are personalized and laid-back with small group sizes to ensure an unforgettable experience. You’ll cruise in one of my stunning convertible Cadillacs, traveling in comfort and unmatched style throughout your one-hour trip. I'll be giving you the stories, answering questions and we'll have great conversations all along the ride! Your adventure begins by journeying down the beautiful cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, where you will see all the 17th and 18th-century French European architecture, taking in popular landmarks like the stunning Notre-Dame Basilica, the old port and more. We'll then make our way to the old financial district and I'll get to explain the origins and evolution of the old-city into what is now the cultural capital of Canada. I'm passionate about Montreal and I'm able to advise you of the best restaurants and bars, its nightlife and current events to visit. Relax and soak up the summer sun in comfort while I show you everything that makes Montreal so special, all with that local touch. My goal is for you to leave my tour with a unique impression of my city, great pictures and an unforgettable experience with me - your new Montreal friend. Inquire about my 2 and 3 hour tours! Hotel pick-up TBD before booking only.
View Northern lights/aurora in a comfortable warm cabin
I'll pick you up from a downtown accommodation/location or along the Alaska Hwy or the North Klondike Hwy (ONLY between downtown and Takhini Gas Station) at night. We'll drive to our cabin/viewing site (25 mins north of Whitehorse City)... an area with the best chance to see Northern Lights (Aurora). It has an open field on the north with nothing blocking our view so that the very low Aurora can be seen here. Weather permitting, we see Aurora almost every night as we are located at the best area (just north of Whitehorse city) to see Aurora. We do not have to drive for hours... Total duration of the tour is about 4.5 hours. We will wait and watch the aurora from the comfort of our rustic and warm cabin... watching from the windows. Go out only if you like (esp to take photos) and come into the cabin as soon as you feel cold. Don't need to worry about the -30 degrees temperature or be cramped in a foggy vehicle. We provide free flow of hot drinks and snacks. Sharp wide-angled photos of you (with aurora on the background) are taken and given to you at no additional fee. We do not need to "chase the Aurora" in a cramp vehicle (which many people can do on their own)... Aurora is up in the sky so we just wait for it to appear inside the warm comfort of our cabin! We can start a bonfire (campfire) outside if needed and you can BBQ your own meat, sausages or marshmallows.
Intro to Pottery wheel
With guided, professional instruction, you'll have a fun and creative time making an item out of clay on a pottery wheel. I will show you how to work with the clay, get it ready for the wheel, center it, and eventually start shaping. Usually students can make either a small bowl, plate, mug or vase on their first try. You will get up to 30 minutes of time on the wheel which is plenty to create one item, and then you can add accents to your piece i.e. handle and you'll get to handbuild for the remainder of the time (add accents to your piece). You can take the pottery home with you the same day you make them, or—if you'd like—I can fire your work, glaze it, and ship it to you for a small fee. I also offer other experiences: canvas painting, glass fusing, hand building with clay, mosaics, glow in the dark painting, pottery painting, silkscreening. ***Drop me a note if you'd like alternate time for your appointment.****
