Tour Details

Heart of Montreal Highlights

Venture throughout one of Canada's most famous cities to uncover Montreal's culture, history, and modern charm. Aboard a luxury air-conditioned motor coach, you will encounter Montreal's most renowned sites and enjoy various photo stops at landmarks such as Old Montreal, Olympic Stadium, Mount Royal Park, and St. Joseph's Oratory on this Montreal city tour. With uninterrupted commentary given by a professional tour guide, you can be certain that your tour will provide insight into the heritage and culture of this incredible metropolis.

Experience Montreal's historic beginnings with a photo stop at the city's oldest area, Old Montreal. Founded in 1642, Old Montreal depicts the changes of Montreal's exciting past, as a former French and British colony. You will see how each culture has had a unique influence on this fascinating district. View City Hall and travel into Montreal's past. Constructed in the 1870's, it is perhaps the country's greatest representation of Second Empire architecture and is a National Historic Site of Canada. Tour throughout Old Montreal to Place Jacques-Cartier, a charming square built in the first half of the 19th century and named for the French explorer who claimed Canada.

Discover modern Montreal and see the sights that make it a thriving, world-class city. Visit the Olympic Stadium, Canada's largest stadium by seating capacity, which was built for the 1976 Summer Olympic Games. Witness the tallest inclined tower in the world, Montreal Tower, which stems from the base of the stadium to a height of 574 feet. Continue on to even greater heights while on your photo stop at the Mount Royal Park Lookout. See the magnificent city below as you look out from Montreal's highest point in one of its most beloved and beautiful parks.

While on your Montreal tour you will also stop at the beautiful St. Joseph's Oratory. As Canada's largest church with the third largest dome of its kind in the world, this Roman Catholic basilica has earned its place among the National Historic Sites of Canada, and should not be missed while on your visit in Quebec. Tour throughout Montreal and see famous locations, like the Place Ville Marie, McGill University, Chinatown, and many, many more. All of the city's most important points of interest are waiting for you to see while on this guided exploration of one of Canada's most famous and inspiring cities.

Heart of Montreal

Bus driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable and professional. Saw many interesting places and learned some history of the city. There were 48 or 49 people on the bus--way too many. At the first stop 2 people did not show up on time, we waited, they did not come, we finally left without them. Like smaller groups.

Good tour with several stops at points of interest around town. Comfortable bus. Pickup location not convenient because requires a cab ride from cruise terminal.
