When booking, choose between the east-side (mid-morning departure) or west-side (early afternoon departure) tour. Alternatively, you can book both, which gives you a break for an independent lunch. Meet at the Notre-Dame Basilica, where your guide will give you an orientation before you enter the basilica itself (admission ticket included). Learn about Quebec’s rich religious heritage, and admire the building’s impressive stained-glass windows.
From there, set out on foot through the streets of Old Montreal, leaving navigation to your guide. Listen to commentary on the city’s history, architecture, art, and culture as you visit highlights such as Sulpician Seminary, the Champ de Mars, City Hall, St.-Jacques Street, Place Jacques-Cartier, and Place Royale.
End up at the domed public market, Bonsecours Market, which is more than 100 years old. From there, you can explore further on your own with your guide’s suggestions.
Since the Basilica is closed on Sunday morning, please note that it is not part of the tour on that day. However, your ticket grants you access to the Basilica during their opening hours on the same day, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Note, independent lunch break in between both tours when booking the 11 a.m. combo tour.
