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.

Our guide was very flexible and spent a little overtime despite the cold snow weather! She was accommodate us with great opportunities to let us step inside of some historical buildings which was perfect for that severe weather. She shared many interesting stories behind and was willing to answer many questions here and there. It seems she was welcomed to go in to the buildings because staffs were aware of touring. She was definitely contributing to the preservation of rich Montréal culture. Thank you for the great time! Sorry I don’t recall her name!
