At this time of year we saw the changing colours of the trees and loved the walk to the Clock Tower. We watched the St Lawrence River flow quickly out and the tourist boats manage the tide.

I do not know about the Rotterdam Cruise ship. In Old Montreal there are many signs and people available to help. We are celebrating 150 years (July 1st) as Canada. In Montreal the celebration is 375 years. Lots to SEE!
