Full description
Explore the west side of Old Montreal during this 90-minute walking tour.

European in character, with cobblestone streets and cafe culture, much of Old Montreal has been preserved in its original 17th century state. Your expert guide will share the exceptional history of this French-influenced city while showing you its stunning architecture and historic sites.

Begin your walk with a step inside the famous Notre-Dame Basilica and end at the Place Royale, near the Pointe-à-Callière Museum. Encounter a variety of highlights in between as you see significant landmarks of Montreal, including the Place d'Youville and Place Royale. Walk along McGill and Saint-Jacques Street - once the financial heart of Canada.

While Old Montreal reflects the city's rich and colorful past, today it is a vibrant, artistic, and trendy neighborhood lined with galleries, restaurants, and fashionable boutiques you can discover as you explore the area with your guide.
