Full description
Enjoy a “Tale of Two Cities” walking tour of Montreal, and learn why so much of the city is located underground.

Get a great introduction to the heart of downtown Montreal, where approximately 500,000 people circulate daily around a network of some 2,000 shops and restaurants, hotels, museums, theaters, and universities. See key sights and must-see cultural landmarks like Rue Saint-Catherine, leafy Dorchester Square, and busy Rue Peel.

Enter the vast shopping cathedral of the Montreal Eaton Center, and the flagship Cours Mont-Royal. Marvel at the Gothic Revival façade of Christ Church Cathedral, wander down the scenic McGill-College Avenue, and see the statue of Edward VII on Phillips Square.

The tour departs and ends inside the Tourist Information Center at 1255 Rue Peel, where your certified guide will welcome you into Montreal’s vibrant downtown core, before taking you down to the winding passages of the parallel city below ground!
