We booked this over the internet and we were lucky because even we were suppose to join a larger group, 5 of us had a private tour. Guide was professional, one attraction we went over a bit fast (but enough) but otherwise we wouldn't have time to do it in 90 mins. Actually even we were doing "Old montreal east",... More

I enjoyed the tour very much. Our tour guide (very unfortunate I did not get his name, i was so awestruck with the beauty of what is Montreal) was extremely knowledgeable. He was very sweet and was very patient and answered all questions. Will definitely recommend this tour (west) and the company. Had a very lovely time! Merci Beaucoup from... More

We purchased this tour by Gray Line through the GetYourGuide.com phone app a month in advance but the email notifying us that it had been cancelled was not sent until October 20th. When I finally reached someone by phone (after spending 20 minutes searching the area) we were offered an afternoon tour, but that did not fit our schedule. It... More

My husband and I took a VIP walking tour of Old Montreal on our recent trip. We lucked out in that the tour has a max of 6 people but we were the only 2 on this tour, so we basically had a private tour. Our guide, Tom, was terrific. He was personable, knowledgeable about the city, professional, friendly and... More

Andre (our guide) was very knowledgable and considerate. He met us at our hotel and we toured through the downtown and Old Montreal. He answered all our questions thoroughly. Definitely recommend doing this when you're in Montreal !

We took both the east and west tours and each were well worth the time and money. Both guides were personable and well informed. Fun and informative morning and afternoon.

One was in the morning and after a break where we were free for lunch, the second walk was in the afternoon.There was a party of approximately 12 on the morning tour and five in the afternoon.

We did the East and West tours of Old Montreal with Georges. He was excellent and took account of the fact that both tours said they started at the Basilica but that all the group had been in there on the morning tour. He was full of detailed information about the places we visited. The narrow streets were explained for... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
