What You Can Expect

Montreal Shore Excursion: Pre- or Post-Cruise Guided Sightseeing Tour of Montreal

Sightseeing in Montreal

While you’re in Montreal before or after your cruise, see all of this historic city's highlights on a 3-hour sightseeing tour. After pickup from your Montreal hotel, you'll travel aboard a deluxe coach and enjoy live commentary about the sights you see from your friendly, knowledgeable guide.

Learn about Montreal's rich history, French heritage and modern-day culture as you explore Old Montreal, the city's historical heart whose Old Port will take you back to the times of French colonization. Pass historic buildings on your way to Notre-Dame Basilica, an impressive building whose masterful Gothic Revival architecture will captivate you.

See Olympic Park, a complex of stadiums built for the 1976 Summer Olympics, and enjoy striking views of downtown Montreal from Mt Royal Park. Atop Mt Royal, you'll visit one of the world's most-visited shrines -- St Joseph's Oratory.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Excellent driver and tour guide. For pre-cruise passengers you can bring your bags with you and avoid the hassle of going back to your hotel and finding transportation to your cruise. They will take you from the central departure point to your ship. Have no reservations about recommending this tour. Only negative was the day of our tour there was a marathon going on and several streets were blocked. Our drive did an excellent job in navigating around the situation.

Jean is a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable, personable with a great sense of humor. Great overall view of Montreal. Just wish we could of stopped more often to take pics but that's borderline impossible in some areas. Definitely not Jean's fault.

I already did this once. The tour was fine. Pick up at hotel and drop off at ship were just as promised. Guide was well trained. We only had a few hours, and we felt we learned a lot about Montreal.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

This tour was everything and more. My mother and I only had one day in Montreal and wanted to see as much as possible. This tour allowed us to experience the entire city in 3 hours. Our guide allowed picture stops and made suggestions of places to eat and things to do that weren't on the tour. Amazing tour!
