We did a self guided walking tour. Time estimated was 2 hours. I think we spent 4 or 5 because there is so much to see. I really admire old Montreal has preserved its history yet offers a very comfortable modern experience!

We spent two full days in Old Montreal -- one on a guided tour and one on our own. If you don't mind the traffic -- it made me on edge -- then its okay. Eateries galore, souvenir shops everywhere you turn, high-end boutiques and...More
