5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We did the short up-the-river tour. While the two-language tour audio presentation was odd for someone from the Deep South in the U.S., I understood it was necessary. Boat was clean, easy to move around on and they did a good job of showing plenty of landmarks along the river. Definitely check it out.

A lovely way to view Montreal from the water. Excellent commentary. And the weather was good! The length of the tour was just right.

The trip was relaxing and informative. The boat wasn't filled to capacity so we had many choices of where to sit.

Tour guide was thorough in his presentation.... Although the scheduled tour time changed from 11:00 to 2:00, the wait was worth it.
