I often use a hop on hop off tour when I first arrive in a city to get an overview and feel for the place. As it was, I did this on the second day of a 3 night stay, having used the metro to get to the Olympic park as the bus goes nowhere near it!! Then to find... More

We used Gray Line bus hop on hop off for 2 days. It's great way to get to know the layout and great guide introduction of the city.

A friend recommended the double decker bus tour for our first time in Montreal and I'm so glad we did it. It is like any other hop on, hop off bus company. Our tour guides were informative. The buses came promptly every 15 minutes. The tickets are rather pricey but we would not have been able to see as much... More

The bus tour was quite like other hop-on, hop-off bus tours we have taken with two exceptions: 1) the charge is CAD 55 per person (way higher by any conversion table to other hop-on hop-off tours in any other country); and 2) the commentator kept reminding us to tip her and the bus driver when we disembarked - 5 times...

Tour guide was quite ill, so much coughing and hoarseness that he really was not understandable over the bus PA system. Should have been replaced that day by a different guide. It was hot that day, bus kept stopping to take on more passengers, including ones with no ticket, so we would sit in hot sun for long stretches, without... More

Usually we start with a Gray Line tour when traveling to a new city. It helps us get the lay of the land and gives a nice overview of what we want to explore further. This was not the best Gray Line we've had. The tour guide made the tour too much about himself and not enough about the city.... More

Our tour to Quebec was a very good tour--very informative and my friend and I love to walk around quaint towns with visual appeal. The ride went quicker due to the Mr. Bean DVD they played for our viewing pleasure. Our guide Roch was the best part of the tour as he shared much history about Quebec and threw in... More

they do the best they can . Montreal is not really a great city. There are not that many places to go or things to do. The bus tour around the city is ok if you've got nothing else to do, I guess. If you take it, get off at the modern art museum for a treat.

Decent tour. Sergio was a great driver and showed good DVD's along the way. Couldn't do the 1/2 hr walking tour due to moms mobility issues. Rock (great guide filled us in). Waterfall could have been a drive by in lieu of more time in city. Someone gave us their boat tour (they wanted to shop and mom couldn't deal... 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.
