Our Guests

Danny Pavlopoulos, Spade & Palacio 

Danny Pavlopoulos is the founder of the first non-touristy tour company in Montréal, Spade & Palacio.
The company was started with the idea of having guests walk away with a day in the life of a local experience. We offer walking and biking tours focused on street art, food discoveries and lesser known parts of town. We have also worked with many media outlets, journalists and filming crews that look for insider information when covering all the best the city has to offer. It's simple: we keep it real, unscripted, and human scale. We'd take our tours if travelling and we think that says a lot.

Expérience Acadie and Parks Canada 

La Commission du tourisme acadien du Canada atlantique (CTACA), also known as Expérience Acadie, brings together tourism operators and stakeholders who offer authentic Acadian experiences and operate in the Acadian regions of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. Visitors are invited to connect to the unique culture, history, and language of l’Acadie through diverse experiences that celebrate tradition, community, and la joie de vivre.

Parks Canada protects a vast network of cultural and natural heritage places across the country that include 171 national historic sites, 47 national parks, five national marine conservation areas and one national urban park. It administers one of the finest and most extensive systems of natural and cultural heritage places in the world. The network of protected areas administered by Parks Canada is a gateway to nature, history, and 450 000 km² of memories from coast to coast to coast.

Parks Canada in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, administers one national park and five national historic sites, including the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. Surrounded by Cape Breton’s rocky shoreline, this breathtaking site brings you back to French colonial life between 1713 and 1758. First the home of L’nu, also known as the Mi’kmaq, the 18th century brought French, Basque, German, English, Irish, Scottish, and African people to its shores. Today, the site and its many stories are brought to life by 18th century “residents”, fascinating exhibits, and five coastal trails. Visitors are invited to discover the many cultures that helped shape Canada and continue to thrive on Cape Breton-Unama'ki, through music, dance, language, craft and culinary traditions.
