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.

East & West walking tours

We booked both tours and enjoyed the first one at 11 am. The basilica was closed for Sunday morning services, so it was added to the 1:30 tour. After exiting the church the guide took us the same direction our morning group had already gone....More

Great quick overview

I was in town for a conference, but didn't have much time to see Montreal. This was a great quick overview to Old Town.

If you're using the supplier's website, it was hard to use. I just booked directly with Viator and there was no problem
