I took this tour and because I was the only one on a Wednesday night, and it was a bit chilly, I had the guide to myself. It isn't normally a guided tour, but she sat with me and told me all about Montreal! It was terrific. Caroline was awesome! Beautiful--Montreal at night!
Though it was raining and we did not hop-on and hop-off, we enjoyed the trip and the opportunity to see a lot more of Montreal than we would have discovered on our own. We enjoyed the casino, though we did not win any money...and really appreciated being able to walk outside and get right back on the shuttle to go to our hotel. BTW -- the seafood buffet at the Casino was fantastic!
Booked this trip and had a lot of fun. It is not a hop on, hop off tour, though you can hop off at the Casino. We were on the bus for about 90mins, just driving around. Was fun. There was just one couple on with us group of three. We sat on the upper level and saw lots of the sights and we whizzed by. If you are short on time...this is a good option. Otherwise book a hop on hop off.
Didn't really enjoyed this tour as nothing interesting to see or do where the route takes you-not worth the price you pay,better off just riding the local transit and it's much cheaper too!
Not worth the money. We loved our tour to Quebec City with Viator but this tour was a waste of time. We rode around without knowing what we were seeing - could have done that by car ourselves. My suggestion would be the bus driver give information or have a taped tour that could be played.
First of all, the bus was late 30 minutes. The bus was old and not comfortable radio or speakers were broken, so we couldn't even get some music. There was no tour guide, and the driver told us that the guide had to leave for some reason. The driver tried to convince us not to stop along the way, and he obviously seemed in a rush to finish the tour. It was a bad experience
we sign out for this tour as it read it night tour and casino well the tour start at 7pm we did not see the city at night, and they told us they do not go to the casino anymore. instead we did a tour of the old montreal... terrible we did not see what we ask for.
Worst tour ever. It was so bad, we were laughing at the absurdity of it. We try to do one of these hop on, hop-off off tours in new cities we visit. Quebec City was great as was NYC. Usually, with this type of double decker bus tour, you expect some commentary from a guide but no, just like being on a city bus. Little tour of the industrial sites by the river, across a bridge then back thru DT, Chinatown, Mont Royal. We finally convinced Valerie (the girl who took the tickets) to use the mic and while she tried her best, she admitted that she is not a tour guide. Maybe the daytime tour is different but the night version was terrible. Add to that, if you sit on the upper level, right side of the bus, the branches keep hitting you in the face. You have to totally duck your head below the seat in front of you and if you dont, you might be in for some stitches. Not a joke. The girl said theyve mentioned it to the city several times but they dont do anything. Maybe if one of the guests does make a trip to the ER, theyll get the message. Save your money. Rent a bike.
