See the best of Montreal on this sightseeing tour with a professional guide. Aboard a coach, admire more than 200 top Montreal attractions and landmarks while enjoying live commentary, letting you learn about the sights you see. Highlights including Old Montreal, Olympia Park, Notre-Dame Basilica and St Joseph's Oratory. This is an easy, comfortable way to soak up the unique French character of this charming Canadian city!
  • A perfect first Montreal activity—see top landmarks and neighborhoods
  • Choosing a bus tour means an easy, comfortable ride in any season
  • See, learn, and experience more by exploring the city with a guide
  • Discover places to see in-depth after the tour ends, on your own
What to Expect
Meet the tour bus at your downtown Montreal hotel, or make your way to an easy-to-reach departure point. Climb into the comfortable, climate-controlled bus, and then set out through the city as a guide offers running commentary on the landmarks you pass. Learn about Montreal’s past, present, and cutting edge while traveling through old Montreal and downtown’s skyscrapers, and then continue to the 1976 Olympic Stadium, whose cantilevered roof is an icon of the city. There are great views across Montreal and the St. Lawrence River from the Frederick Law Olmsted–designed Mount Royal Park, which fills with skiers and skaters in winter, and cyclists and walkers in the warm months. Ride through Chinatown, pass the Bonsecours Market Building, and see the Place Ville-Marie. Your Montreal sightseeing tour ends at your original departure point.
