Full description
Discover the highlights of Montreal in comfort on a 5-hour guided tour and travel in a small group for a more intimate experience. Drive to the Mont Royal mountain that the city was named after and get beautiful views of the surrounding area and city skyline.

You will get to see St. Joseph's Oratory and stop at a landing point on Mount Royal for breathtaking scenic views of the city, and then explore it's historical side in Old Montreal. Hear little known historical facts and see the beautiful Notre Dame Basilica. 

When in season, you will head to the Old Port of Montreal where you will board a river boat cruise. On this 1.5-hour cruise, you will be able to sit back, relax and take in some amazing sights as you float down the St. Lawrence River. From September to June, the cruise will be replaced by a visit to La Grande Roue, Montreal's famous observation wheel, located in Old Port.

After your in-depth look around Old Montreal, the next stop is the new downtown area to admire the sights from the top of the Observatoire Place Ville Marie. An elevator will whisk you 617 feet (188-meters) above the ground so that you can marvel at breathtaking 360-degree views of the entire city. As your tour draws to a close, you will be returned to your original meeting point or hotel.

Good tour but not at rush hour.

I enjoyed Audrey and the tour. I was disappointed that we missed the observation tour as we got there 5 minutes late. We were told we would receive a refund for that. I would strongly suggest redoing this tour so that your guide does not have to drive guests through that awful rush hour traffic. The rest of the tour was excellent and Audrey was a delight.

I received an email which only got a pickup point (excluding exact pickup time) So, I made a telephone call the agent, and got the exact pickup point and time. That was not kind. It had some transportation problem depends on a hysterical Swedish girl's protest
