We bought a package of our 1 night hotel stay in Montreal plus for a Gray Line City Tour of Montreal (with AAA in July) but were not on the list when we presented tour tickets for the bus tour at the assigned time in October. After much aggrevation and frustration, we did not get to see that beautiful city.... More

This Red Bus Hop on Hop off service was good value for the 2 hour trip around the old & new Montral and Robert our guide did a great job explaining to the mixed nationalities on board on this chilly Spring day.

We debated taking the hop-on hop-off bus but decided that it offered a limited overview of the city. So we decided on tour #C1 which was the motorcoach tour. It was outstanding. They picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel (Hyatt) and other major hotels. While it's marketed as a 3.5 hour tour, both ours and the... More

We took the tour on Friday May 15th. The sun was shining and the temperatures were just perfect. The moment the guide began to speak we knew we weren't going to get much out of her. Her French accent was very thick. I am originally from Montreal and can easily make out accents and even I had difficulty, never mind... More

This hop on, hop off bus tour of Montreal was not good value. The $45 is too high for so little detail. Also the speaker system broke down two-thirds through the tour but we only received an apology at the end when the guide came upstairs to remind us that tips would be appreciated - no chance for such a...

First day: pick up was late and then they put us on wrong tour and so returned to base. Only compensation was a non-guaranteed front seat the next day. Second day: pick up was early. Long, boring drive in both directions. Minimal guided tour of city. No hotel drop off at end of a long day.

Our Saturday morning May 16 tour was excellent! Our driver / tour-guide Frank was outstanding, with a very, very good understanding of Montreal history and contemporary affairs, and a good sense of humour. Highly recommended.

The day tour offers a comprehensive tour around the city and even provides free time to roam around the old town.

The tour gives you a general idea of the city, so you can return by your own to explore more of your interests. 55 dollars is a little pricy but they pick you up from the hotel and retun as well. The guide was very kind and explained more lot than other guides would. Any way all the city tours... 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.
