Full description
Discover the highlights of Montreal in comfort on a 5-hour guided tour and travel in a small group for a more intimate experience. Drive to the Mont-Royal mountain that the city was named after and get beautiful views of the surrounding area and city skyline. You will get to see St. Joseph's Oratory and stop at a landing point on Mount Royal for breathtaking scenic views of the city, and then explore its historical side in Old Montreal. Hear little known historical facts and see the beautiful Notre Dame Basilica.  When in season, you will head to the Old Port of Montreal where you will board a riverboat cruise. On this 1.5-hour cruise, you will be able to sit back, relax and take in some amazing sights as you float down the St. Lawrence River. From September to June, the cruise will be replaced by a visit to La Grande Roue, Montreal's famous observation wheel, located in Old Port. Following a view of the beautiful downtown Montreal, head out through some more of the city as you work your way towards the world-famous Olympic Park which was the main stop for the 1976 Olympics. You will have time to explore the area and take a trip to the Biodome where you will walk through four ecosystems found in the Americas.

Good tour but not at rush hour.

I enjoyed Audrey and the tour. I was disappointed that we missed the observation tour as we got there 5 minutes late. We were told we would receive a refund for that. I would strongly suggest redoing this tour so that your guide does not have to drive guests through that awful rush hour traffic. The rest of the tour was excellent and Audrey was a delight.

I received an email which only got a pickup point (excluding exact pickup time) So, I made a telephone call the agent, and got the exact pickup point and time. That was not kind. It had some transportation problem depends on a hysterical Swedish girl's protest
