4-Hour Montreal Half-Day Bike Tour

Montreal Guided Bike Tour

Feel like a local during this 4-hour bike-lover’s cycling tour of Montreal. With three distinct excursion choices, covering different aspects of the city’s architecture, history and food, you’re sure to get a great feel for this beautiful French-Canadian metropolis.

Start your biking excursion at de la Commune Street East, arriving at least 15-20 minutes before your scheduled tour time. At the time of booking choose between 9:30am and 1pm departure options. Then cycle out into the city for an exploration of its wealth of attractions on two wheels.

Pick the “City Tour” for a great 9 mile (14km) ride through Montreal from its Old Port area to its Latin Quarter, making a stop for a snack at the world-famous St-Viateur Bagel and then continuing past Mont-Royal Park and into Old Montreal. Or choose the “Vista Architecture Tour” to explore some of the city’s most unique buildings on a 13-mile (20km) ride, including the Estacade which spans the Saint-Lawrence River, plus food tasting at Canadian Maple Delights. There’s also the “City of Contrasts Tour,” an 11-mile (19km) ride through Montreal’s downtown, its Atwater food market and the antique stores of St-Henri.

For a full description of each tour option, please check out the itinerary details below.


City Tour: Led by an informative tour guide, you will enjoy a panorama of the city covering a route of approximately 9 miles (14 kilometers). Begin at the Old Port and cycle to the Latin Quarter. Continue to La Fontaine Park, with an unusual detour into one of the alleys of The Plateau. Enjoy a refreshment stop at 'St-Viateur Bagel' and get the opportunity to taste their world-famous bagels! This legendary bakery has been part of the city's culture and of local people's everyday living since 1957. You will then continue to Mount-Royal Park, into the Victorian ambiance of the Golden Square Mile, cycle through the business district, and conclude your cycling tour in Old Montreal.

Vista Architecture Tour: See all of Montreal's famous scenic areas and architectural buildings on this 13 mile (20 kilometers) bike ride. Pedal along the Saint-Lawrence River and enjoy the views from the water. Discover Montreal's unique architectural works and culture. Learn about the historical importance of the Saint-Lawrence River over Montreal, and uncover architectural works and parks that have defined Montreal. You will cross the Saint-Lawrence river via the 'Estacade', a structure built between 1964 and 1965 to control ice formation and movements. On the 'Estacade,' enjoy a food tasting of fine products from Canadian Maple Delights.

City of Contrasts Tour: Explore the contrasts of beautiful Montreal on this 11 mile (19km) bike tour. Cycle through the ritzy Westmount district, the vibrant downtown and the famous Atwater market, as well as the industrial area of St-Henri. At first glance, St-Henri may look downtrodden, this is Montreal's "antiques alley." This ride is easy-level friendly.

I thoroughly enjoyed this four hour tour led by our guide Mike who was charming and knowledgeable. He personalised the tour so that we saw some places you wouldn't find by yourself and the bagel stop was a bonus, as was being able to keep the bikes until 7pm that evening. I've written a blog entry which gives more detail of the tour.

Love the bike tour - this was the BEST thing we did in Montreal and our guide was wonderful. She showed us so many places that we may not have seen if we had none done the tour. We enjoyed the great exercise of biking while enjoying the sites of Montreal. It's a must do...

Perfect activity for teenagers and the entire family. We had a great time and learned a lot about Montreal even if we live in Ontario Canada. It was a good experience and a fun way to travel and meet other people from different countries.
