Unfortunately our experience on the tour was awful. Our tour guide had a very heavy French accent, that was extremely difficult to understand. plus a serious stutter and a speech impediment. This is not to offend this man, however he should not be doing theJob he is when he cannot speak clearly and concisely. There were many other people who felt the same way. Besides the tour guide, the microphone system was not good . It crackled loudly and was very distressful for my partner who was wearing hearing aids. E said the noise was almost unbearable. While we visited some nice sites and enjoyed the scenery, we did not understand ANY of the comment.

Really good afternoon.

Although it clearly states they take digital or paper tickets, nowhere does it say you have to go to the ticket office (near the dock) to exchange a digital ticket for paper ones. This is very outdated. Tour does not go far, just within the port, but staff were pleasant and boat was nice.

Great service, knowledgeable guide and a clean ship. Totally recommend

While the boat itself was just fine, there was no commentary at all on our tour. The ride was not particularly scenic, which I would have been okay with if there had been someone talking about the history of Montreal as the description indicated. This was a serious disappointment and I do not recommend it.

I enjoyed this leisurely trip on part of such a great river with its great history. Able to get a good perspective of Montreal from the river.

The ferry is very big and so make sure you find the best place to take photos...
