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.
Really liked to be pick up at the hotel. On time. Saw a lot of different attractions. Liked the hop on hop off tour.
Great value. Unique opportunity for making excellent pictures of the city.
lovely tour you really need to do this tour as the city is spread over very wide area and we made full use of the hop-on-hop-off tour
My wife and me strongly recommend this tour. Montreal is a big city and this is the best way to see the main attractions.
I enjoyed the tour of Montreal very much.
Everything was excellent. The driver and guide did a good job.
We take the hop on hop off bus on major cities we visit and the montreal red bus was great! It covers a large area of town and well worth the time and money!
Loved every minute! Our first impression was ' why did we book 3 nights here?' We were a bit disappointed especially after Quebec. But how wrong could one be! We got on our Hop on Hop off bus and realized what a great city Montreal really is. We loved it. So much to see. Beautiful city and great food. Loved the markets near the port. Had to brush up on my schoolgirl French though as everyone speaks to you in French and expects you to as well.
Excellent. We rode all day on and off. What a great way to see the city in a short time.
This was a GREAT tour and definitely worth the price. You saw almost everything that you could possibly want to see in one day. The tour guides were also very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Great tour. I love the flexibility and freedom to set my own timetable for each attraction.
Loved the hotel pick up service! All the our guides did a great job in both English and French! Loved the Village for the great food! The Biosphere was breathtaking! Great value...
Excellent, superb, educational and awesome! Andre is the BEST tour guide I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. Even though our bus broke down I would still consider the tour to be perfect. Thank you :)
