Traveler Tips


Mounir offers a Montreal city tour in a shorter 3-hour version (the first 3 hours of this tour), but I would highly recommend this extended 7-hour tour to anyone if they have the time.

Excellent tour and Mounir tour guide
paulbrown, Aug 2022
Mounir was an excellent tour guide - very knowledgeable. There was only 3 of us on the tour so lots of time for questions. We can recommend this tour - especially as saw areas of Mont Royal we wouldn’t have seen by ourselves.

Fantastic tour of Montreal
Elizabeth_H, Aug 2021
We booked through Viator and had a great day with Adam from Ntours! Adam was very knowledgeable, friendly and warm. We loved that we saw the city in a SUV and not a big bus. Adam answered all questions and we had a fantastic day.

Montreal Overview
PaulaD_L, Sep 2021
This was a perfect start to my Montreal visit. Mounir was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful, and gave us a great overview of things to see and do while in this beautiful city. We had enough small breaks to exit the vehicle and take photos. I enjoyed this tour.
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Thank you so much Paula for the nice review. It is highly appreciated. Keep safe and enjoy Montreal!
Amazing overview of Montréal!
Janice_W, Jul 2022
What a great way to learn about Montréal! Our tour guide, Mounir, was so knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. We definitely recommend this tour during your first visit to Montréal.

Some good, some not so much
Richard_S, Sep 2021
Too much time spent at the Oratory( cut in half!) leaving out other interesting parts of Montreal life like the old port, neighborhoods etc. Informative otherwise. Other passengers felt the same.
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Thanks for your suggestions, we appreciate your feedback. But we have another tour where we do the different neighborhoods. It is called Montreal Intercultural City Tour. For seeing it all though, the full day option is advised. Regarding the Oratory, it is the highlight of this tour. Being the largest church in Canada and having different points of interest require some time, we agree. Keep safe and enjoy traveling!

Nice guide - saw little
Andy_K, Jul 2022
Pickup was at location populated by several homeless people, didn’t feel safe. Guide was nice and informative, but small van made it hard to see points of interest. Saw more on hop on hop off bus ride.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you Andy for your review and feed back, it is highly appreciated. Our tour start point is within the downtown campus of Concordia University. It was chosen because it is easily accessible by metro / bus and also being a university area, many parking options are available if someone is driving. It is also surrounded by many cafes and restaurants, in case someone shows up early and need to have a coffee or need to go to the washroom before the tour starts. Like all big cities, Montreal has some homeless individuals that hang around downtown area, but up until now and for many years, we never had a security issue, otherwise we would have change the tour start point immediately. On your second comment, being specialized in small group seize groups, this allow us to offer more personalized service and to access more points of interest as well as conducting several visits during the tour. Of course with the small seize groups we have to use vans and minibuses and unfortunately, we are not allowed to have an open top because of safety reasons.
Great opportunity to see Montreal.
Nick_K, Oct 2021
We really enjoyed the Sightseeing Tour of Montreal. It is a small group tour, so one has every opportunity to have their questions answered. The vehicle for the tour is full size SUV with grass roof, giving everyone a great view of the city. Mounir is a very good tour guide. He is very knowledgeable, punctual, polite, and pleasant to talk to person. We would definitely recommend the tour to everyone.

It was ok
Camis_N, Oct 2021
I enjoyed the small group and the tour guide was knowledgeable about the sites we did visit; however I feel we spend too much time at some places i.e. the church. I would have wanted to see more of Montreal i.e. going through old Montreal

Harald was a great guide. Very accomodating to our needs. He was able to bring us to all of Montreal's need to see sites, even though it was raining and traffic.

Mounir was very good and...
Cornelia_S, Oct 2021
Mounir was very good and gave us a wonderful sense of the city it’s people history culture and places. However I do think that for a tour of the city the amount of time spent in the Oratory was much too much. As a secular tourist I would have appreciated more of the street art work and other types of sites, neighborhoods and districts—more diversity of stops would have held our interest more.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you so much for your review, we really highly appreciate it. Thank you for your comments too, its been taken in consideration. On the other hand, we would like to highlight that regardless of its religious aspect, the St Joseph Oratory is a Canadian heritage site, and it is the main visit included in this tour. Being the largest church in Canada and as it has different interesting sections, it takes up to 30 mnts, but this doesn't affect at all the other points of interest that are included in the tour, which are published in the tour itinerary, nor the time allocated to them. Keep safe and all the best.
Great expensive tour!!!
Manisha_B, Nov 2021
I loved the guided tour; very knowledgeable and friendly guide. However, I didn’t like the company SUV they sent, very compact, not super comfortable. And they said hotel pick up included but there is a catch, which you learn after buying your ticket, I.e pick only in downtown area. Otherwise, it was great yet expensive option.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you Manisha for taking the time to review the tour and we appreciate your nice review. We are sorry that you have found the SUV we used very compact. In fact, it is a full-seize SUV which should seats 6 adult passengers comfortably. Regarding the hotel pickup, we are also sorry that you didn't see it earlier, but in the information regarding the tour, it states clearly that we do only pickup from hotel in downtown Montreal. According to our records, your booking was a late booking where you have chosen a hotel near the airport and upon calling us, you said it was OK for you to meet us at downtown Montreal, otherwise we would have accepted that you cancel the tour and get a refund. Stay safe and all the best!
Enjoyable and informative tour of a great city.
John_A, Sep 2021
It was a surprise to learn how much of 17th-century Montreal survives. Enlightening, relaxing afternoon with a small group and a terrific guide.
