Sample transcript

Harp: Yeah, now I also heard from Maura that you are doing like a tour company? Are you starting your own company and you have a lot of Japanese clients I believe?

Marcus: Yeah, that is right

Harp: OK, so can you tell me a little bit about that?

Marcus: We every weekend, every Saturday I take tourists from Montreal to a new destination

Harp: Cool, where do you go?

Marcus: So we go to Quebec City, Ottawa, sometimes Niagara Falls, sometimes Mount Tremblant which in the fall season we can see beautiful fall colours.

Harp: It’s stunning here!

Marcus: Stunning, it is going to be very beautiful.

Harp: OK, so we will add the information of how they can get in contact with you, if anyone is in the Montreal area and who wants to go on a tour, because it sounds amazing.

Marcus: Sure sounds good to me. Awesome for sure. They are very fun tours. I meet a lot of people.

Harp: I imagine. All right so I think that is about it for today.
