Meet the guide and the rest of the tour group at a central café in Old Montreal to explore the historic centerpiece of this largest city in Quebec. Visit the top attractions in both the east and west parts of Old Montreal on this 90-minute walking tour.

Learn about this city’s rich history, French heritage, architecture and culture while roaming the maze of narrow streets like Saint-Jacques (the former Wall Street of Canada), Saint Paul, Notre-Dame and Rue de la Commune — plus some hidden courtyards. Stroll along the river banks at the Old Port of Montreal and visit some of the city’s public squares, like Place d’Armes, Place Royale and Place Jacques-Cartier, witnessing the impressive monuments and beautiful works of art on display there. 

See the famous Notre-Dame Basilica, widely recognized as one of the most impressive landmarks in the world. It’s one of the crown jewels in Quebec's rich religious heritage and a focal point in Montreal’s history. In fact, the original stained-glass windows here paint a story of Montréal’s religious past.

Other points of interest include Champ de Mars, a public park that used to be the site of Montreal’s city walls; and no visit to Old Montreal is complete without a picture of the Saint-Sulpice Seminary, the oldest building of the historic district.

We were supposed to meet with the tour guide at10:30am by the cafeteria. The tour guide didn't show up on time. I and other tour group participants tried to call the phone number listed in the ticket however it wasn't possible to reach our to any responsible person, so I'm thinking if I should continue using Viator :-(Eventually through the café employee the company communicated that the tour guide would be one hour late. At last the tour guide was good appeared - the tour guide was good.

I felt with a little research on your own you could do this tour on your own and even better. Being in a predominantly French speaking area and not knowing the language I was hesitant to go on my own, but coming from New York City the area of Old Montreal was not a bad area. We arrived early and took the 6 per person tour of Notre Dame Cathedral which was very interesting.

Our guide, Clare, was not so great. She came to the meeting point at least 10 minutes after the scheduled tour time. Her history was vague at times and flat out wrong at other times. I felt like we could have just walked around with a guidebook. We usually LOVE walking tours and have taken them all over the world, and my husband and I agreed that this was the worst. Still gave 2 stars because old Montreal is lovely and I'd recommend a tour of it... just not with our guide.

This walking tour was really interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable of Montreal history and culture. We had a thunderstorm in hte middle of the tour so I recommend bringing an umbrella.

The tour was small, only 6 people, however, the tour guide was not the most engaging. We had two school-aged children and when I asked the guide to explain some of the history in their terms, he was unable to do so. He also kept pointing out events that had happened earlier in the summer but had left - not helpful for tourists here now.

However, Old Montreal is beautiful so even a not so great tour guide still makes for an enjoyable visit.
