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.

The tour showed us a lot of wonderful sights in Old Montreal. Notre Dame Basilica was breathtaking! It was a good way to start off your vacation in Montreal because you get to see sights you can go back and explore further. Wish there was more history in the tour though.

We did the three hour tour that started off with Isabelle as our guide for the east tour. She was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and asked us questions to keep us engaged, entertained and on our toes. The time flew by with her. If you are planning a trip to Montreal, this tour included a stop in the Basilica of Notre Dame and a coupon for 1/2 off a visit to Pointe-a-Calliere Museum. So you should definitely do this tour before planning a stop to the basilica and museum.However, the second half of our tour was a bit different. It was mostly filled with going into some banks and buildings that had no interest to me at all. I and my friends found it boring and we ditched it before it had ended. I am not sure if this is how the second tour was designed from the company or if each tour guide does his/her own thing. All in all, I am glad that I went because I was able to get my steps in.Would absolutely recommend this tour - mostly due to Isabelle

Tour guide was fantastic. Great mix of history and current events dealing with old Montreal. Not too long., so plenty of time left for shopping and sightseeing.

Very fun and informative trip with Isabella. As she pointed out the only grew up in Montreal, the only predominately French speaking family on an otherwise English speaking street. Very funny and witty.

Our guide, Camille, was quite delightful, putting up with small children and slower, older folks (like us). The tour of the West of Old Montreal was much more interesting than the East, which is more modern. The tour covers most of what is interesting in Old Montreal.

This tour is a great way to be introduced to the history and beauty of Montreal. Our guide was absolutely perfect: native Quebecois, personable, funny, and very knowledgeable. The itinerary worked really well: we did the east part in the morning, had a nice break for lunch poutine, of course!, and the west side in the afternoon. Had time and energy to go back to Notre-Dame afterwards. Terrific tour!
