We booked this tour on behalf of my parents. They showed up at their Montreal hotel on time, provided a fantastic tour of Quebec and was back by 8 pm. I'd 100% recommend this tour to anyone.

It was a great tour and the length of trip was fine. I now have an idea of where to go back the next time I'm in MTL. Our guide, Germain, was very knowledgeable and humourous. Germain was also kind enough to drop each of us off to our respective hotels after the tour. It was raining the day we... More

Jean made this trip the amazing experience that it was. He was funny, extremely knowledgeable and a great driver. It was the perfect amount of time to see a bit of everything and give us an idea of where we'll be back to visit next time. Thanks for the great introduction to Montreal!

If you have a hard time finding detailed itinerary information n the Quebec City day trip on Gray Line, there is a reason: it's a nightmare itinerary. Three and a half hours each way on the bus, with a dozen stops in Montreal after returning during rush hour, making the return bus time four hours or more. The driver and... More

Our guide was outstanding: humorous, well-informed, and obviously loved what he was doing. The tour was well planned and just the right length. While you didn't get an in depth understanding of any one place, you got a taste of many places, some we will return to.

I hadn't been to Montreal in over 34 years, and Gray Line's bus tour was the perfect way to reacquaint myself with this magnificent city. The driver was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour, but unfortunately it was overcast, cold, and windy on the day I toured, however Mother Nature gets the nod for that last one....

We took the motorcoach tour that was offered by Gray Line. We were picked up at our hotel (the Chateau St. Marc) and delivered to the main office which was great for us. We waited about 20 minutes before we could board the motorcoach. We saw lots of things, but there were a few stops that I think should have... More

We took the Montreal City Guided Sightseeing Tour, not the Hop-On-Hop-Off tour. It was nice to get an introduction to the city, as this was our first time. However, 2 things made this experience less-than-enjoyable. The first was the fact that the driver/tour guide spoke English with a very thick French accent, and delivered the information in a very monotonous... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
