Great experience! Montreal is a very bike friendly city. That, combined with an excellent, experienced guide (Mike) made for a very safe and enjoyable tour. Sometimes it is hard to find something that everyone enjoys. This was perfect! We did the Architecture and Infrastructure tour. We upgraded to EBikes as our group had different fitness levels and were very glad we did, as it was a hot, humid day. That being said, Mike made sure we had plenty rest stops and always had us standing in shady spots while he told us all about his beautiful and fascinating city. Great service also from Ca Roule, the local provider. They were able to work with us to switch our tour to a day where there were enough ebikes available for our group. The equipment was high standard, as was their service. They took our bikes back into the store while we enjoyed lunch, after the tour and had them fully charged and ready to go for our afternoon adventures.

Mike was an excellent guide and we learned so much about the fascinating city of Montreal during this ride. The things we learned about the city and its people inspired hours of conversation for the rest of the day. Biking is the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful details of Montreal’s street art, architecture, and landscape. The fact that you can keep the bike all day after the tour is a wonderful added benefit as there is more to see and do than this wonderful 4-hour tour can even cover. People of all cycling abilities will find the pace comfortable. Highly recommend!

Mike was an amazing guide! I highly recommend this activity if you visit Montreal. It really made our trip special and memorable. Thank you, Mike!! Brian and Teresa Lennox, Dundas, ON

It was a very pleasant tour thanks to Mike as guide. The tour is not very difficult to ride and should be possible for everybody.

Amazing experience. This was a very well managed tour. Cheers to both the Tour Guides.
