Walking Tour of Old Montreal

Notre Dame Basilica, Montreal

Choose to explore the east or west side of Old Montreal on a 1.5-hour tour, or select both the east and west sides on a 3-hour adventure.
Meet the guide and the rest of the tour group near the famous Notre-Dame Basilica, located at 110 Notre-Dame Street West, at the corner of Saint Sulpice Street, to begin this walking tour of Old Montreal, the historic centerpiece of this largest city in Quebec. 
Notre-Dame Basilica is 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 history.
Moving along, learn about this city’s rich history, French heritage, architecture and culture while roaming the maze of narrow streets. Visit some of Old Montreal’s public squares, like Place d’Armes, Place Royale and Place Jacques-Cartier, witnessing the monuments and works of art on display there. 
Other points of interest include the 5-story Montreal City Hall; Champ de Mars, a public park that used to be the site of Montreal’s city walls; the former “Wall Street” of Canada, St-Jacques Street; and no visit to Old Montreal is complete without a picture of the Sulpician Seminary, the oldest building of the historic district.
The tour concludes at Bonsecours Market, a 2-story, domed public market which has served as Montreal's main public market for more than 100 years.

Our guide Pascoal did a great job of bringing Old Montreal to life. He was also the perfect guide for our family that include a 7 and 9 year old. Pascoal kept our children engaged while still giving a good tour for the adults.
