I was in Montreal from New Zealand for work. I wanted to see as.much as I could in a few days. I walked.around the Old Port, a spectacular place, the historic buildings are amazing. The Notre Dame Basillica was also fabulouse along with the Botanical Gardens and Olympic Stadium. I took the river cruise to see the city from the river. It was well worth it. It was well organized, and the easy to find. I was lucky to have a lovely sunny day. I would recommend a longer cruise if you had time. This was just perfect for me..
