Very nice tour and historic update.
Comfortable, clean boat.
Definitely worth the money.
Loved the cruise. Great way to get an overall look at the city and history.
We did the short up-the-river tour. While the two-language tour audio presentation was odd for someone from the Deep South in the U.S., I understood it was necessary. Boat was clean, easy to move around on and they did a good job of showing plenty of landmarks along the river. Definitely check it out.
A lovely way to view Montreal from the water. Excellent commentary. And the weather was good! The length of the tour was just right.
The trip was relaxing and informative. The boat wasn't filled to capacity so we had many choices of where to sit.
Tour guide was thorough in his presentation.... Although the scheduled tour time changed from 11:00 to 2:00, the wait was worth it.
Great service, views and boat. Really enjoyed the history and the entire cruise.
Nice tour, good sized boat. Very pleasant way to spend the afternoon.
A very enjoyable cruise with lovely scenery and lots of interestin facts from our tour guide on board.
I did 3 tours, all were excellent- Bus drivers fr om Coach Canada were very nice and the guides were great
Our guide was at a disadvantage as he had to conduct the tour in English and French which makes for a somewhat disjointed presentation. But he was very good, knowledgeable and entertaining. I thought he did an excellent job. My only problem was with the ignorant passengers in our group who continued to talk during his presentation and the drink waiter who conducted converstations with the passengers OUT LOUD while the guide was describing views and historical events. If I were the captain I would have made them walk the plank. Despite our ignorant cruisers the tour was worth it.
Eventhough it was pouring rain they managed to give us a good experience
Very nice afternoon or actually ninety minutes... on the water. They changed our tour time from the morning 11am to afternoon 2 pm, but gave us plenty of notice and we easily arranged our day a bit differently. The guide was GREAT in both English and French and he could be heard all over the vessel, even the outside decks, which I highly recommend on a nice day. Bring the sunscreen, hat, and light jacket, or you can easily just come inside and view everything clearly through the floor to ceiling windows. Didn't have any eats or drinks so I can't review, other than to say they are available, but if you're down in Old Port save your appetite for one of the little cafes on shore. Easy walk from any of the downtown hotels we were at Hyatt Regency The tour gives a very nice overview of Montreal, so it would be best to do the tour up front and get an early idea of what is located where.
Tour guide was great, very entertaining. Would have given 5 stars had the waitress ever asked if we wanted anything from the bar. she started going methodically table to table, but never seemed to reach an entire side of the boat wfich was far from full.
The cruise provided a very nice view of Montreal from the water.
The history of development was very interesting ,
Good tour - the boat crew are very professional but a very basic coverage of the history of Montreal can only be given in the time allotted. Nevertheless recommended for those wishing to have a view of Montreal from the St Lawrence river.

This cruise on the St. Lawrence River was informative and relaxing. This guide did a better job with his explanations than the bus driver on the City Tour. The only negative remark with this cruise is that Viator needs to give a better explanation of how to find AML Cruises. The direction on the Viator voucher states that the cruise departs from King-Edward Pier. It was a good thing that we left the hotel with extra time because our Taxi Driver did not know were King Edward Pier was and kept asking us for an address. I had to make another phone call to AML to get better directions. It would be far better if you stated on your voucher that to find AML and King-Edward Pier you should enter at the Science Center roadway. This is a large building visible from the street. AML and the pier is at the end of the dock and not at all visible from the street. We were beginning to panic thinking we were going to miss the cruise.
Beautiful boat. Great cruise. Only issue was it seemed to drag a but as scenery and tour guide became redundant at some points.
