I found the bus tour to be a splendid activity for tourists and people who are temporarily staying in Montreal, like myself. The tour was planned in a way that it helps catch the theme of this beautiful city with visit to the downtown, old Montreal and Mount Royal. I loved how the tour guide also showed us the popular schools on the way and the rich Victorian houses

Our Guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Montreal and it’s French roots and about the history Montreal dating back from the 1600’s to the present day. It was a fun and interesting activity.

Guide itself was great. Pick up directions could have been clearer, as we were not being picked up at a hotel.

The guides were superior. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable.

Great tour guide, funny and informative, worth the ride
