DO NOT HESITATE - BOOK THE 3-1/2 HOUR TOUR OF MONTREAL NOW !!

Montreal City Hop-on Hop-off Tour
We originally book the Hop On Hop Off Double Decker bus tour but it was not available at travel time due to COVID. So we were offered the 3-1/2 hour tour of Montreal as an alternative. I am so glad we accepted this. This tour was amazing!! we stopped at St. Anne De Beaupre Church (just WOW ! ), a copper manufacturer (fabulous tour) and the Olympic Stadium. This tour is fabulous and I would recommend this to everyone. Don't Hesitate -take it. Saw and learned so much about Montreal.

Montreal Intercultural City Tour
We did both the morning and afternoon city tour. Was an excellent overview of the city. The tour was informative. The driving/walking sections and breaks were nicely spaced. The car was comfortable and water was offered. Had an enjoyable day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Mounir. We are both familiar with Montreal but we saw and learned things we never knew. Mounir is a great tour guide, knowledgeable and personable. Thanks for a great day!

Wow, what a day!! The weather was very challenging and that made this tour even better. It snowed a lot all day and was the storm of the year but that didn't stop our guide and driver!! Loved it! Very informative without being boring. The interaction between guide and driver made it fun too. Only wish we had more time at the food and basilica stop. You couldn't do both so I missed out on a bagel.

Montreal City Hop-on Hop-off Tour
We certainly know how to see this beautiful city! This hop on-hop off was perfect. The guide was well informed, polite, funny, and a perfect gentleman. We used this line for 2 days straight, got to see all the sites. Will definitely purchase this again.

The biggest highlight of a 48 hour trip was the bus tour; especially the absolutely hilariously clever presentation of the Tour Guide (Mr. Swan). Fascinating and well paced; lots of great info! Well worth the dough!

Good tour, humorous tour guide. That is, until the bus driver slammed on his brakes, and the tour guide went flying and fell down the bus steps with a gash on his head. Good replacement too.

The guide was very informative and the place is gorgeous. We did it under a light snow fall and with plenty of snow on the ground already. The Christmas decorations added beauty. All together a very memorable experience.

Montreal City Hop-on Hop-off Tour
The timeliness of the busses was great. It was hard to find the ticket booth after receiving info from the online booking number. Bought tickets online and had to ask locals where the main ticket office was because there was a street name but no address to find it. Ended up redeeming tickets at one of the stops we found online. There was no sign for any of the stops you had to remember where you got off to get back on. Weather was nice and stops to the overlooks of the city was amazing

Our guide was very entertaining and it gave us a nice overview of the city! The church is stunning but entry is extra.
