Full description
Explore the west side of Old Montreal during this 90-minute walking tour. European in character, with cobblestone streets and cafe culture, much of Old Montreal has been preserved in its original 17th century state. Your expert guide will share the exceptional history of this French-influenced city while showing you its stunning architecture and historic sites. Begin your walk close to Notre-Dame Basilica and end at the Place Royale, near the Pointe-à-Callière Museum. Encounter a variety of highlights in between as you see significant landmarks of Montreal, including the Place d'Youville and Place Royale. Walk along McGill and Saint-Jacques Street - once the financial heart of Canada. While Old Montreal reflects the city's rich and colorful past, today it is a vibrant, artistic, and trendy neighborhood lined with galleries, restaurants, and fashionable boutiques you can discover as you explore the area with your guide.

Our tour guide was Andre and he was excellent in the information and facts he provided. Although, do note that the notre dame church doesn’t come included in the tour and it was something we thought we expected to be there as the tour started at this spot. Regardless, the entirety of the tour was splendid and Andre had a great sense of humour to keep the your lively. Will most definitely come again for this.

Our guide, Natasha, was awesome. She tried to include everyone in our party in the conversation through the tour. She highlighted several points of interest and encouraged us to consider going to afterwards. We Highly recommend this tour group for this tour.

My parents and I enjoyed the tour. George was a fantastic tour guide, he was very knowledgeable and threw in some jokes from time to time. I would definitely recommend other travellers to try out the tour. I learned many new things I didn't know about Montreal.
