Old Montreal Walking Tour (Small Group)

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 46.75
2 travellers
No visit to Montreal is complete without a walk through its Old City, arguably North-America's most charming and well-preserved historical neighborhood.  This 3-hour small-group tour (10 participants max) is casual yet informative, with no two tours being the same. Our guides adapt the tour to the interests of their group and choose their favourite off-the-beaten-path stops. This intimate walk is the perfect experience to begin your Montreal visit.
  • Small-group walking tour explores a historic neighborhood
  • A guide tells you all about Montreal's history
  • Check off a top site: tour includes admission to Notre-Dame Basilica
  • Group size limited to 10, ensuring personalized service
What to Expect
Meet a guide in Montreal’s Old City, and set out on foot through the neighborhood's narrow streets, following a route that’s designed to take in key landmarks and lesser-known areas. You’ll see ships at the dock and pause to check out galleries and restaurants. This is a great time to get recommendations on how to experience the real Montreal. Then, visit the magnificent Notre Dame Basilica, a cathedral with distinctively Quebecois design.

Our walking tour of Old Montreal was superb, partly because it's such an interesting city with a rich history, and partly due to the terrific guide we had - a lovely and well-informed lady called Catherine. I enjoyed all of it, but the highlight for...More

Tour guide Leah was very knowledgeable and pace about right. I really felt that I had an understanding of the city, it's people, history and demographics. Leah encouraged plenty of questions which enabled a better understanding of places visited. Highly recommended

This tour was great - Karine was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Old Montreal. It was a very rainy day but still worthwhile and we highly recommend it. These tours are for ten people or less which made it even more enjoyable.

Although we were hampered a bit by rain, the tour was still worthwhile. Our walking tour guide was knowledgeable of the history and cultural development of Montreal. Worthwhile.

We we’re able to cover both sides of old Montreal. I’d suggest to inform your guide with all your specifics when you first meet or when you create reservation. There is a lot to cover and can easily be sidetracked.

Hello! The Basilica is a working Church with several Masses and other events throughout the days. You may want to check their website for hours.
