Tour Itinerary

We’ll pick you up from your Montreal hotel/residence in one of our modern, fully air-conditioned vehicles.  The tour starts in Old Montreal where we’ll explore Bonsecours Market, Rue-Saint Paul, the Old Port, Place Jacques-Cartier and the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal. Next, we’re off to downtown Montreal.  Soaring skyscrapers and heritage buildings intermingle with quaint boutiques in the compact downtown, making for a setting that is nothing less than spectacular.  Directly below the downtown area, the Underground Pedestrian Network links boutiques, hotels, restaurants, office buildings and city attractions with 32 kilometers of passageways used by more than 500,000 people daily.  From the downtown area, we’ll travel to Saint Joseph’s Oratory and then to Mount-Royal which rises up in the middle of the city.  We’ll also stop at the Kondiaronk Lookout for a superb view of the entire city. On the way back downtown, we’ll stop at several Montreal neighborhoods and a farmer’s market to get a feel for how Montrealers live.
