Full description

Enjoy a 2.5 hour tour in Old Montreal that is casual yet very informative, with no two tours being exactly the same. Each guide is passionate and local with a host of cool and facinating stories. Unveil the secrets behind the most iconic landmarks and uncover off-the-beaten-path spots.

Begins in the lobby of the William Gray hotel where you’ll meet your guide and set off to explore Old Montreal through the back door. Visit unmissable sights such as Place Jaques Cartier, St. Paul street and Place d’Armes

Venture to some less obvious spots like an avant garde art gallery, Montreal’s World Trade Center, and a section of the Underground City. Find out how Old Montreal was the most important and wealthy district in Canada, and how it has become the dynamic and thriving area it is today. This tour was carefully crafted to be fully enjoyable both in summer and in winter, with some extra indoor stops planned for the cold days. If you are booking for January, just don’t forget your gloves and you’ll be alright.

Tom kicks ass. Never had such a passionate guide before. I'm very lucky to have had him give his take on Montreal and the old port.
