No expectations signing up, but grateful i did! Frank was a local to Montreal, so he provided some great insight on the areas we visited! also our random group seemed to gel, and i was able to hang out a few more days with a girl i met on the ride! Completely worth the $$ spent. Mercì!
This bike tour was a terrific way to start my first visit to Montreal: the layout of the city and the historical/cultural background provided by our outstanding guide continued to inform my next days in Montreal. After getting outfitted with great bikes, we set out on the bike path along the St. Lawrence River. It was so exciting to be right where so much important history took place, from the early native cultures to the present time. The first thing we learned: Montreal is a wonderful place to ride a bike. We rode about 18 miles, but it was an easy ride, primarily on level bike paths off the main streets with frequent stops to get background for each stop. We also got advice on how to use the gears for a few inclines, and those who preferred to walk the one big hill toward the end had no problem.
The tour was well paced and the bikes were very comfortable. Our tour guide gave a real insider view of Montreal. If I come back I and #39;ll definitely take another tour with this company. Would definitely recommend.
Fantastic city to take a bike tour. Our guide Pam was a wealth of knowledge and showed us Old Montreal, Chinese and Italian sections, McGill University, and much, much more. We even got to keep the bikes till 7 p.m. though the tour was completed by 2:00! Bikes were as advertised and in good condition. Be prepared...you will be riding in a very busy city, but Pam was strict on safety while presenting this amazing place to us.
This was an awesome way to see the City of Montreal! I may have been a bit to old for one hill, I had to walk the bike up the hill, but otherwise it was better than a walking or bus tour, you get to see a lot more!
Great tour, very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Brune La Jeunesse really loved the city and it showed throughout our tour! Bikes were in great condition and I didn't realize we could keep them all day, which was a great added bonus! A highlight of my trip!
This bike tour was the HIGHLIGHT of my 50th birthday celebration/5 day trip to Montreal. Our tour was a small personal group of 6 riders and our guide Bruno was AMAZING. Guide books can't come anywhere close to what we were able to see and do with this tour. We were introduced to a culture so rich in history and our private guide filled us with local stories and sometimes, his family history since he was born and raised in this city. Our 4 hour tour took us: through the historic city, introduced us to the French, English and Canadian architecture, delivered us across bridges and the river, through smaller towns within the district, around the Olympic park and the 1967 World Fair Expo site, a lap around the Montreal Grand Prix course, a cruise down Lachine Canal, and a stop at a neighborhood market with a local bakery that hands down, offered the best pastry I've eaten in the last 10 years.
I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone 8-80 years old. Take it at the beginning of your trip to get oriented to the city so you can figure out where you're like to spend some more time. BOOK IT.
You won't regret this tour...and I'm pretty sure it will be the highlight of YOUR trip to Montreal.
We had a wonderful time, great guide Mike, lovely tour. Good way to explore the city, our kids 10 and 12 years old also liked it a lot!
Great guide - lovely city - lots of stops and interesting stories - wish we had done earlier in our trip - highly recomend
Wonderful tour! We were able to explore parts of the city we probably would never have seen during our short trip. Everyone was extremely helpful when I got a flat tire too! We were completely exhausted by the end, but definitely worth it!
Very fun way to see the city while having a seasoned guide! For the most part, the ride was easy, except for maybe one or two hills. I recommend doing the bike tour the first day you are in Montreal. It helped us know what to do or go back to see during the rest of our trip.
Pam was fantastic - ask for her. We ended up with a private tour because it was raining and the others cancelled. i'd do it again!

This trip is a must do for anyone who wants to know a little more about the city and doesn't just want hangout in Old Town Montreal. We found Bruno to a wonderful tour guide and really wished we would have taken the tour the 1st day we arrived. The tour gave us history, scenery, and chance to learn about culture and where we could eat outside the tourist traps.
Excellent and fun way to see the city and to learn something of its history. Guide was excellent and knowledgeable and passionate about his city. Plan to do another tour later in the week.
Was fantastic guide was xcellente !! Bike trails in Montreal are fantastic easy to navigate!
Bruno was our tour guide and did a great job showing us the highlights of the city. Despite the cold temps in early june the ride was enjoyable.
I had a blast! We biked the same day as the Tou de Ile a day road in spirit! My tour guide Pam was the best with insight into the neighborhoods and history. It was very doable
Even though I'm out of shape and only rIde every now and again. Great way to see a wonderful city and feel good.
Bike tour was great, used bikes for the remainder of the day and explored mount royal

Louis was our tour guide and did a fine job herding ten cats around the city. He was intelligent, well spoken and fun to be around. Well Done!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this four hour tour led by our guide Mike who was charming and knowledgeable. He personalised the tour so that we saw some places you wouldn't find by yourself and the bagel stop was a bonus, as was being able to keep the bikes until 7pm that evening. I've written a blog entry which gives more detail of the tour.
Love the bike tour - this was the BEST thing we did in Montreal and our guide was wonderful. She showed us so many places that we may not have seen if we had none done the tour. We enjoyed the great exercise of biking while enjoying the sites of Montreal. It's a must do...
Bruno was a great tour guide. What a great way to see the city and exercise at the same time.
