This trip is very well organized and conducted. I was picked up by a shuttle van from my hotel exactly on-time. The bus was large and comfortable. It did not, however, have receptacles for cell phone charging. The bus left on time and make a rest stop half way to Quebec. It did not seem like a long trip thanks to the break. We were met by Katya who was an excellent tour guide. We did a 45-minute walking tour around Petit Champlain then got of the bus for the side trip to Montmorency Falls. They were spectacular in the winter. I walked over the bridge but felt that the view from an observation deck just below the top of the falls was more impressive. The bus then took us through the new and old towns with a narrated tour. Finally, you have about three hours free time which is just about right to have a lunch and shop. The bus picked us up promptly for the return trip that also included a stop at the halfway point with access to a McDonald's and other meal options. Quebec is a beautiful city and this tour is an excellent way to see it on a day trip out of Montreal.

The tour guide was excellent — very knowledgeable, friendly and kept my interest despite the length. Logistically, they could drastically improve things. I had to call several times to confirm that they were picking us up, despite leaving several messages. Then, they were 15 mins late. Then, they brought us to the ticket center but did not tell us anything. We were just following the crowd. Then they shuffled us onto another bus, but then were offended that we didn’t have tickets, so shooed us back inside to go get tickets even though we had the Viator tickets. Apparently we had to convert them to some antiquated paper receipt. As I mentioned above, the tour guide was informative, but it was really hard to see much on the bus. And the tour was very long. We stopped a few times for a few minutes so we could get off the bus and take a quick pic, but this style of touring is not my cup of tea. I would have preferred if the guide sat us in a classroom and showed us slides and a map, as we probably would have seen more that way. Overall, the cost and the guide were great, but the rest was subpar.
The guide was very informative and the place is gorgeous. We did it under a light snow fall and with plenty of snow on the ground already. The Christmas decorations added beauty. All together a very memorable experience.

I took both tours, East and West, and I thoroughly enjoyed them! Elise (I believe that was her name) was super fun, energetic and knowledgable about the city! Even in the cold cold weather she stayed positive. Highly recommended!
Elise our tour guide was knowledgeable and very passionate about her city and the overall architecture and subject matter. The walk to the East took us to interesting viewpoints. The Basilica was the overall highlight and we appreciated Elise letting us know that there would be an organ concert the same day, which we attended and it was magical. Thank you Elise for being a wonderful tour guide.

I absolutely loved this tour. We covered a ton of ground and learned a lot. The scooters were incredibly easy to ride and we were all pros by the end of the ride! I was thankful to be off of my sore feet. We also stopped for yummy bagels!
David, our guide, was super professional. He trained my sister and I with the scooters, he was very patience and always aware of our safety during the experience. This was the best investment so far in Montrèal, and I highly recommend to everyone who is willing to take an amazing look of the whole city in 3 hours. FIVE SUPER STARS VIP !
We certainly know how to see this beautiful city! This hop on-hop off was perfect. The guide was well informed, polite, funny, and a perfect gentleman. We used this line for 2 days straight, got to see all the sites. Will definitely purchase this again.
The timeliness of the busses was great. It was hard to find the ticket booth after receiving info from the online booking number. Bought tickets online and had to ask locals where the main ticket office was because there was a street name but no address to find it. Ended up redeeming tickets at one of the stops we found online. There was no sign for any of the stops you had to remember where you got off to get back on. Weather was nice and stops to the overlooks of the city was amazing
It is good to get to know the city but the comments from the tour guide was horrible, in a tone you wanted to kill yourself after half an hour and they don't say the same in English that French, almost everything is in French, the thing is that is the only company that operates that way in the city so you don't have any other choice if you want a hop on hop off expirience

Mounir, the tour guide, gave both my daughter and I a great city tour from a local's perspective, showing us the major neighborhoods, parks, highlights of Montreal including the local food specialties. We did the tour when it was -8 degrees Celsius, and being from California, it was not easy. Mounir was very patient with us and we never felt rushed. We highly recommend him as he is the consummate attentive tour guide professional having done this for many decades.

If you like ferris wheels, this is very nice. It would probably be better if it were in the city somewhere so you could see more of the city from the top - it is on the shore so you see a lot of the river and environs and not much else. Because it was leaf peek time we had some pretty views.
This is a very pleasant quick activity that can be easily integrated into a walking tour of old Montréal specially along the peer of the Montréal port. There is a lovely park with benches and ducks along the river that you can enjoy after a 15 or 20 minute ride in this Ferris wheel type of activity.

We knew when we booked this that there was not a meal included. However, when we read “snacks,” we thought that there would be something more substantial (crackers, nuts, baguettes, etc.) than what was offered. The first place had yummy smoked meats and cheese, but very thin slivers. The second place had 2 tiny “breadsticks” (the dry, thin kind.) This is fine, but it should be made more clear in the advertising. The bottom line- eat well beforehand.
Lots To Learn About Canadian Wine Industry! - Who Knew?
, Oct 2019
We went on the 1/2 day tour on 10/4/19 and really enjoyed it. The tour bus only held about 19 -20 people and was comfortable. Ken our driver was very knowledgeable about the area we were traveling through, the growing climate, the two vineyards we visited and the wines we tasted. He made the entire trip very interesting and educational. The people presenting at the vineyards were also very knowledgeable and welcoming. True to the other reviews, the snacks given were very limited, but being forewarned, we were prepared for that. We were there for the wine and the experience, not the food! Be warned, one of the vineyards has a very steep set of stairs to go down to view the vines up close, but you don't have to go down there to see the vines.All in all a great tour!
We picked the half day tour option, we saw two wineries that were great. There was a lot of education (more than we expected or wanted). There wasn't time to sit and enjoy a glass of wine, the tour felt very rushed. This tour is targeted more for older people (we were a group of girls in our late 20s). The weather was great.

The food tour was awesome! We were thinking that like other food tours, we’d be so stuffed afterwards. It’s one reason I am always a little hesitant to book food tours. Anyway, this was perfect! Small plates, coffee, beer and moderate plates made this a great tour. Danny knows his stuff and made Montreal come to life as we walked and talked. This tour takes you to local places. Family owned, women owned. No chains. Amazing flavors. Then, he leaves you with a list of other places to try.
This tour was one of the highlights of my trip. Our guide, Marie, was an inspirational leader. She was funny, caring, knowledeable, and everyone had a great time. We visited many food sites, mostly "off the beaten path." This made the trip a lot of fun. We sampled, spices, ethnic foods, meats, cheeses, and lots more.

This was great - Interesting, relaxing, great food and service. The guide stopped his talk twice at convenient times and came around to answer questions - he answered ours thoroughly and interestingly. The ship itself was really really nice.
My wife and I enjoyed the tour. It's not a five-star review because it was a little tricky finding the boat. We had purchased out tickets online and located the ticket window, which was about 100 yards from the bike path / train track. The clerk gave us verbal directions, but since it was perhaps a quarter of a mile from the ticket window to the boat, it would have been clearer if we had been given a map. The tour boat was at the very end of the pier, with alcohol, soda, and snacks available. Lower deck was enclosed with windows; upper deck open with plastic bench seats, a bit uncomfortable. The audio system was excellent and the guide was fluent in English and French. He created a pleasant atmosphere, and when he took a break, he walked the entire boat asking if there were questions. That happened three times. Great job!
My wife and I enjoyed this cruise. It's relatively short - I think we were only on the water for about an hour - but it gives you a nice perspective of the city of Montreal and the immediately surrounding area. I found the guide providing commentary was very good. He gave lots of interesting information about various features as we sailed past them but he didn't overdo it and also left some quiet time for us to soak up the environment on the way back. We'd happily recommend this tour.
Set sail for fun with a guided cruise near Montreal on the scenic St. Lawrence River, enjoying skyline views and learning about city history as you ride.

The length and speed of the walk was perfect for our group. Daniel always made sure everyone could hear him. His knowledge is amazing. GREAT and applicable informaiton, not chatter as many tour guides have a habit of doing.,
Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. The walking tour was well paced. Because there were only two of us on this group tour there was lots of time for questions, answers and information on the best ways to travel to other points in the city that we wanted to visit.

Plus, make stops in the entertainment district and Chinatown.
Very beautiful scenery. Wish we would of had a list of places stopping since we were having a hard time understanding everything. Even if the tour director was doing English and French. Also driver needs to make sure on drop off that they have the correct hotel since there were two in the area that were Best Western but 30 minutes walking between the two. We were dropped off and it was only suppose to be one block to our hotel. We had figure out where we were and figure out the direction we need to walk which was difficult since we were not that familiar with Montreal. We made it after asking a couple of security people

, Oct 2019
We loved our guide, Mike. He was very knowledgeable. Pace and length were great. Guys at the shop were quick and great. Only down was we booked an English tour and there were a few French speaking only guests, so he took time to translate everything.

He is a native of Montréal/Québec and a teacher by training so he had an amazing knowledge of history which he combined with his wit and logic in a way that kept everyone entertained an attentive throughout the tour. Would highly recommend this for two all who bike riding throughout the city. Most of the bike writing was in dedicated bike lanes however there were a few times when bike lanes were not available. The tour group including Mike or all theory efficient and professional. Overall excellent tour or those in good shape that can keep up with biking while touring with the group.
a four hour easy bike tour with lots of stops and stories about Montreal. We stopped at a food market and took a quick run through-enjoying the sights of produce pastries and more! Our time at the location of the Olympics was a blast, then hauling ourselves up over the bridge and coasting back home. The guide was so energetic and enthusiastic. A truly enjoyable morning!

We had a great time with our tour guide Kim! This tour was a great way to see Old Town. The tour provided some history on the city and we were able to experience Montreal culture - through food! All of the places that we stopped were excellent. We even went back to some of them throughout the rest of our stay in the city. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun way to learn about Montreal - and definitely take the alcohol upgrade.
We had a terrific time on our "food tour" of Old Montreal! Our guide, Fran, was warm and funny, and knew everything! We were able to see parts of the city and EAT at places we would have never known about as tourists. The French Onion Soup is worth the price of admission! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone who comes to visit Montreal!

Had so much fun despite the cold weather with our tour guide Carolina! She was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and made our tour quite interesting and of course delicious!

But all in all, would definitely recommend this tour if you're visiting Montreal!
