Although I had lived in Ottawa and visited Montreal on numerous occasions a long time ago, it was the first time for my fiance, and we found the City HOP-ON HOP-OFF a great way to learn more about the city, go to different points of interest without having to drive, take the subway or wonder around... I recommend it highly to everyone, even those who know the city well... =)
We loved the tour. It was very informative and we learned quite a bit. This is a great tour if you don't have time to explore the entire city on your own.
Our guide was wonderful. Traveling with handicapped person, she took great care of us. Weather crummy so we didn't do as much as we would have liked.
It was great. The staff were courteous and perfectly bilingual. We lived in Montreal 39 years ago and got to know the city better with this tour.
A very nice way to get to know your way around. In a two decker bus you will go to the most important places on Montreal and you can hop off and take a look around and have a coffee. No need to rush. On summer, a bus will stop in every place every half an hour.
Montreal is a beautiful city, even in the heat of July, but it could be confusing with French everywhere. The guides were engaging and helpful, pointing out places to return to for a closer look. We love seeing the top spots in a city with a bird's eye view on the top of the bus. Our "short" trip was organized and confusion minimized by this tour.
Superb overview of Montreal - just the right lengthen and a knowledgeable guide. Would highly recommend for one new to the city.
The Gray Line picked us up at our hotel right on time (we called in advance and notified them of our location). The ride was smooth and covered a lot of territory. It was a 3 hour ride and we saw everything we needed to see. I have been on many Hop-on/off tours and have found it much easier to NOT hop off. We stay on throughout the entire tour and figure out what we would like to go back and see at a later time.
Montreal's hop-on/off tour is great!
Loved the old London bus. Great tour; gave us an excellent overview of Montreal so that we could then visit areas at our own pace over the next couple of days.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny, we had a great time. Thanks.
This trip was a great experience for myself and my wife. I normally dislike guided tours with older people. But we were able to get a comprehensive overview of the geography, demography, history and sociology of Montreal thanks to a very knowledgeable and humorous guide. Came away totally entertained and educated. Gained a new perspective of Montreal on my third visit there. I could never have covered the territorry myself in a car and would have spent aged researching the info I received from the guide. Would recommend this excursion to anyone who wants a quick, yet comprehensive insight into Montreal.
The Montreal City Hop on Hop Off Tour bus was completely full and the Viatar rep put us on a 3 hr. bus tour. We were very pleased with the accommodations, the tour guide and experience. This tour gave a complete overview of the city and we felt our time was well spent.
There was a group of eight of us. We were taking the train from Quebec City to Toronto and had a layover in Montreal. We had taken the same trolley in Key West Florida and San Diego. Free shuttle service was provided at the train station, and we had a great tour guide as well! Thank you.
I enjoyed and learned from the commentaries of most of the guides. The staff went out of their way to make sure I got picked up at my hotel and on the correct bus. I would recommend you publish online the route and stops so that one can decide ahead of time which stops to ignore. Thanks for your fine service.
This was a blast...learned a lot about Montreal via the different guides. Would definitely recommend taking the full 2-hour tour first to see all the sites, especially if you like your guide, and then start the tour over again and begin the hop-on hop-off tour. Just be careful...upon arriving at the tourist center on the shuttle we were herded onto a 3-hour continuous tour. It's only because I knew we were supposed to ride the red double-decker buses that I asked and was told the desk people had incorrectly directed us. Be proactive and know what you're buying! The tour guides were wonderful, very entertaining and informative. Also, the stops that Viator lists for this tour aren't the actual stops on this tour, just a heads up!
I have been to Montreal many times and decided to take the tour for my children's benefit; however, I learned much more than I expected to! It was great.
This bus tour was a great way to get a taste of Montreal. The tour guides were fantastic, full of information and history. It helps to know where you want to get off and walk around. We ended up walking the old city, seeing the shops, and eating the crepes! Later on, we just watched from the bus and at the end we shopped til we dropped. It was great fun. We'd actually take the tour again, because it is reasonable compared to taxis!

It was unfortunate that one of the trolleys was not working and we could not hop on and hop off but twice or we would miss the connection. We got off at the Old Port and St. Joseph's. We did enjoy it, and the guides were good. The 2 times we were able to get off, the trolley arrived back on time.
