Get an insider’s take on Old Montreal during this guided walking tour, which lets you leave the navigating to someone else. Choose a shorter walk of either the east or west sides, or a longer walk that covers both. Through your guide’s commentary, come to understand the history, culture, and architecture of the city. Highlights include the Notre-Dame Basilica (admission ticket included), Champ de Mars, City Hall, Bonsecours Market, and Place Jacques-Cartier.
What to Expect
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.

Nice Context to Old Montreal

We took a 4pm Sunday tour with Romy and got great historical context on the development of Montreal as a city. The tour started at Notre-Dame Basilica since it closed just at the start time we went in as a first stop.

Good tour, worth the money and time

We got off to a bumpy start as the directions of where to meet the tour were at the opposite corner of where the tour actually begins. Despite that though, we caught up to the group who were not far along. Our guide, Isabelle was...More

Lending my vote -- take this tour!

We did two food tours and this tour, which was far and above the best of the three. Guide was knowledgeable, good with people and interesting. Kept things moving and clearly enjoyed her job -- the other two companies ticked the highlights boxes, but it...More

The morning starts at 11, runs until 12:30 and the afternoon stats at 1-2:30. When you sign up on the website it can confirm...I believe the timing might be a little different if you want the French tour.
