Awesome Tour! I really enjoyed the tour! I was staying just two, okay 1,5 day in Montreal, but even if you just have so less time, this tour is awesome! I will do it again! Montreal or another city! Awesome idea, I would say better than any other tour I ever did! So thanks!
Great overview of the city with informative, funny and knowledgeable driver. Gave us lot's of history, additional sightseeing info and restaurant tips :)
The tour guide we had was amazing not only was he an actor he ensured our tour was fun and safe. We got to see most of the sites that were noted on the advertisement; there was a bike race going through the city so some of the roads were baricaded and we were unable to get to a couple of the sites. i would recommend this hop on hop off tour. Excellent
It was comprehensive and informative - it then allowed us to return to favourite spots again both later in the day and then the next day with our own transport. An excellent introduction to a beautiful city.
Very convenient way to see the city for someone like me who is limited to walk for long periods of time. Kind and knowledgeable bilingual tour guides took their time to explain the highlights of each place visited. Buses came regularly and they were clean and in good conditions. We will use this service again, definitely. Thanks.
This tour was a great way to get around and to judge for yourself where you might walk on later excursions. The tour guides aboard the bus filled in a lot of unknown details and made us want to take the time to see a number of important attractions we may have otherwise missed. Unfortunately, we ran out of time so we will return again.
Excellent tour of the City of Montreal. The tour guide were very knowledgable. I learn a lot about this beautiful city.
Love these hop-on hop-off tours! They are the perfect way to get an overview of a city so you know what things you want to see. It's also a very helpful way of getting around. On the first day we took the entire tour non-stop to get an idea of the layout of the city. The next day we used the tour to get around and see things. It's great to use different buses so you have more than one guide because you learn different things from each one.
Perfect tour to see all the sights in Montreal at your own pace. The only problem was trying to find the pickup stops as they are not well signed, there should be larger signage and better tourist maps for us to locate the pickup stops
Hop-on-Hop-off bus was great, you get to see hi-lites of the city, on this narrated tour with interesting facts about the city. My only concern would be you apparently can't buy just a one day tour, and the length of operating hours seemed quite short!
This kind of tour is a must for people who are in new places the 1st time as it really helped you navigate around -enjoyed the whole experience esp. the tour guide 'Angelo' was very informative and professional.
We really appreciated being able to hop on/hop off the second day since the first day was quite rainy. I don't know if the second day option is always available or only if the first day is rainy, but it is definitely a great policy. The tour was enhanced by our guide (Norman) --his knowledge of the area and its history was easy to understand, and his humor and involvement with the riders made the tour even more fun!
This was a great option for my husband and I! I can not walk very far and being able to see the city and determine where we wanted to spend our time was perfect! Each tour guide had their own unique stories about the city and so getting on and off over two days was never boring! We like it so much that we arranged for the same tour in Quebec City and it did not disappoint. We think this was a great deal and money and time well spent. We will look for this type of tour in future travels.
Great way to see Montreal. Montreal has changed dramatically since my last visit a couple decades ago: still French speaking, but most people are immigrants who learned French. Montreal is now more commercial and less French. City of Quebec is much better.
We got to see all the historical places, very interesting and knowledgable guides
Montreal hop on hop off tour was everything you would expect from a very well done over all city tour. For those with limited time in the city, it was perfect. On a side note, the Cantonese Chinese restaurants were exceptional.
This type of tour is the best kind of tour for someone new to the city. It enables you to see an overview and also see in depth. Two critisisms though--first of all I think it would be better if you had clearer interim points so tjat a person could see somehting at the end of the circuit more easily. And secondly I was disappointed to find that the Island and the Botanical gardens were not included. The tour was still well worth the money and has convinced me to look for this type of tour in the future.
Best way to get know Montreal!! you are own of your time and have the amount of time that you want!!! just pay attention to your clock and don't miss the hop-on hop-off bus because it pass every 25 minutes! 100% recommended!! you have to take this tour if you want to know Montreal (a lovely city).
The Hop-on Hop-off Tour was great. I would suggest rather than dealing with Viator that you purchase your tickets from the Tourism Information on Peel and St. Catherine. We tried phoning Viator for information about this tour (i.e. where to get on etc.) and they would or could not tell us. They said the information would be available once the ticket was bought and you printed your voucher. Not true. You still had to go the the main Information Place for the start. There was no or little savings going through Viator. It is the same bus 'Grayline' that viewers may have seen while researching for a similar tour like this. Viator is just a broker company that confused us and waisted a lot of our traveling time trying to get information out of them. It also took a long time trying to get through to Viator on the phone. If you do use Viator make sure you book this at home where you have more time to deal with them if you have questions.
