Or choose the “Vista Architecture Tour” to explore some of the city’s most unique buildings on a 13-mile (20km) ride, including the Estacade which spans the Saint-Lawrence River, plus food tasting at Montreal's well known bakery, Premiere Moisson.

For a full description of each tour option, please check out the itinerary details below.
City Tour: Led by an informative tour guide, you will enjoy a panorama of the city covering a route of approximately 9 miles (14 kilometers). Begin at the Old Port and cycle to the Latin Quarter.

A Great Way To Explore Montréal
Scott_B, Aug 2022
We booked the bike tour as a means of demystifying the city shortly after our arrival, and it didn't disappoint. Through Nicolas's expert guidance, we quickly learned about Old Montréal, the Latin Quarter, Plateau Mont Royale, Mile-End, and McGill University, among other places. What a beautiful and fun city! Nicolas brought local color, knowledge, and humor to the experience that made it memorable and fun. Highly recommended!

Hi. Thank you for your review and great rating about our bike guided tour service in Montreal. Great to read you did enjoy our services. Thank you for your business. All the best !
Great tour but leave out the politics, please
Richard_L, Aug 2022
Mike was a great tour guide. He had a command of the history and facts that made for an interesting tour with some lovely scenery. I really enjoyed it but do want to give some feedback that i kean to be constructive. Tours come with all manner of guests with differing points of view and perspective. I would appreciate it if the political worldview of a guide did not encroach on a tour.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Hi. Thank you for your review and comments. Regarding political content, our policy is our guides to present situations in a neutral way. Facts and not personal opinions. I will forward to all of our guides a reminder. Thank you for mentioning it. Regards.
Let Julien show you around Montreal!
yvonneperryh, Aug 2022
Took this tour with my husband on a super hot July day. Bottle of water in hand, and off we went. Julien was a super guide. There were 8 of us, 4 English speakers and 4 Francophiles. Julien switched languages with ease and never seemed tired of repeating himself! Electric bikes are an option with this company, and 4 elected to have the help with the hills. We were on pedal bikes, and didn't have a problem. (Both in our 50s, but in pretty good shape) Over four hours later, we were definitely tired, but had a great overview of the neighborhoods and history of Montreal. Recommend!

Hi. Thank you for your comments and great rating. Great to read you did enjoy our guided bike tour with July. Thank you for your reservation with Ça Roule Montreal * Montreal On Wheels. Regards
Great chance to try an electric bike
Wendy_C, Jul 2022
I loved the bike ride. Our tour guide (Nicholas) was nice and knowledgeable about Montreal and willing to answer questions. Im not sure how much I’d call this an “architecture” tour. It was light on info in that area. More focused on interesting facts about the city. For an architecture tour, I’d pick another tour company.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi. Thank you for your review and comments . To clarify and allowed thus other readers to make the right choice, the tour you went on is our Vista-Architecture one. This tour is not only about some nice elements of Montreal’s architecture constructions but also about famous parks and green sites of our city. So therefore, it is not a 100% architectural tour. Thank you for bringing it up and i am sure that this will help customers to select the right tours among the ones offered by us. Best regards
Great way to see the city
Moraig_G, Jul 2022
Excellent tour of Montreal by bike. Our tour guide Mike was excellent throughout. Very knowledgeable and looked after the group at all times no matter what level of ability. This tour is a great way to see Montreal, suitable for all abilities. Added bonus was getting to keep the bikes in the afternoon for further exploring. Shop were very helpful giving maps, locks and sharing information on good routes to take
The best bike tour ever
Janet_P, Jul 2022
Our tour guide Mike was excellent. He was so knowledgeable and engaging. It was so nice to meet different people all over the world. Loves the fresh hot Montreal Bagels and the wine at the end. This was my second time with this company and I would highly recommend this tour

Mike_B, Jul 2022
Michael was an excellent guide. The tour was supposed to be in English, but their was a Belgium family along, so needed French as well as English. Could have been better if the tour was only in English.

Hi.Thank you for your review and comments. Glad to read you were satisfied with our guided bike tour service. As for tour language, we do try as much as possible to split English / French group. But rarely, it happens that we just can't depending of inscriptions. Thank you again for choosing Ça Roule Montreal * Montreal On Wheels. Regards

daniel_r, Jun 2022
Guide Julie was definitely enthusiastic and I think it rubbed off on the rest of the group….we got to see many different parts of the city and learned a lot of the history as well…we were impressed enough to come back the next day to rent bikes, only to learn they were free due to the previous day’s tour…we actually saw Julie the next day while we were biking, and she was quick to come greet us…to conclude, I would completely recommend this company ( their staff was so helpful as well ) for any of their outings

We enjoyed seeing the 'wall artistry' and getting an on-the-ground experience of Montreal. Pascal was an excellent guide and knows the city very well including how to get around on a bike.

Fun on Wheels in Montreal!
MaryAnn_M, May 2022
What a great way to see & learn about the city! The biking tour with Rene was so much fun! And he was informative, and knew the city well & much more about the architecture here & all over the world. We were so glad to have a guide to follow in the bikes for safety, too.
Tour good, guide not so great
Jill_E, Sep 2021
The bikes were great, and the amount of Montreal we covered in four hours was perfect. Mike, our guide, was so biased about the history, language, religion, politics and socialization of city and province that we didn't get a clear picture of any of those aspects. Many of his assertions were lopsided and from his own lens, while others were complete fabrications. That being said, I would recommend the tour for the great electric-assist bikes and the amount of the city seen during this longer tour. It was great that we were able to keep the bikes after and explore the island and some other places not covered on the tour. A balanced approach to recounting Montreal's history, politics, etc is recommended to make it better.
Response from Host, Sep 2021

Not really about real Montreal but a nice ride along water
sarahbella7, Aug 2021
Not exactly what we were looking for. I was hoping to see some of sights and some history of architecture. But guide took us out of area and explained in OVER detail of city infrastructure and design. Wine and beer is a coupon for house wine. Gross,,,and beer was only coors. Bikes are ok. Customer service at bike shop very nice.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Hi. Sorry to read that you did not fully enjoy your bike tour with us. We will be in touch with the guide to review this matter. Beer and wine: because of pandemic situation, our regular supplier closed its doors. We are dealing with a new supplier. We will review your 'beer-wine issue " with them. Sorry again that you were not fully satisfied.
Biking, a great way to get a feel of the tiwn

Good time
p_e_snyder, 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.
4 Hour Montreal Architecture & City Bike Tour with Drink and Montréal bagel snack!
Shanawar_A, Sep 2019
Our tour guide Mike was very thorough, personable, entertaining and knowledgeable. He spoke both French and English very fluently. 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.
Disappointed
Tony_S, Sep 2019
The guide, Rene spent too much time talking to one person and virtually ignored the rest of the group. There was very little architecture of note to see and we were in the old port area for too long. We didn’t stop to take photos of the key landmarks such as the Jacques Cartier Bridge. It was also supposed to include a city tour but did very little of that. Overall it was disappointing.

See the city as you would never see it!
Leslie_t, Aug 2019
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!
Great experience!
patriciacawthorne, Aug 2019
A thoroughly enjoyable trip made all the better by the very engaging and entertaining guide! A great way to see the city!
