We booked our Quebec City trip from Birmingham,AL to spend a dedicated day there out of our 4 planned days in Montreal. Upon arrival to the station we were told they did 'a mistake' and overbooked the bus. They graciously offered our money back. I was in line waiting and saw few new couples actually buying new tickets for the... More

I don't quite understand why this tour gets such negative reviews - it's a city tour, it does it's job and the tour guides are informative! We enjoyed this tour, obviously! Yes there were no jokes or the usual humour that goes along with a city tour but we got the necessary information expected on such a tour. I would... More

I did this tour to get my bearings. I have to say I've done a number of these tours but this was not one I'd particularly recommend. First off I think it was quite expensive and not great value for money. The tour guide was informative enough but the constant asking for tips really started to grate. Apart from the... More

I took the Gray Line Bus Tour on Montreal and I would highly recommend it....value... $47 CAD for a 2 day pass...easy access from the Metro (get off at Peel on the Green Line) our tour guide Robert was fantastic. ..he was friendly and spoke so many languages it was mind blowing....I would recommend completing the 2 hour tour first....

Went on the Quebec City Day Tour and booked through the Viator company. The tour bus was Gray Line. I thought it was a bit difficult to find the departure point. The address of 1255 Peel Street had you entering a building with no sign telling you where you needed to go. We stopped inside the building and asked someone... More

We always take the HoHo in every city in the world, we are fortunate to travel the world. This was the best HoHo bar none. The guy with the big cowboy hat was extremely intelligent and full of fun ( he is the spit of Bill Murray) I am sorry I did not get his name. Of course they need... More

For a first visit to these 2 beautiful cities, this is the best way to get acquainted with many of the sites and sounds. We purchased a 2 day hop on hop off bus ticket for Montreal and enjoyed our experience immensely. We loved the tour guides knowledge and their humour. We also purchased a day trip to Quebec City...

Took the Gray Line, Heart of Montreal Motor coach City Tour 3.5hr tour. What a mistake!!!! The bus driver-Denis- was not overly friendly-although he thought he was great. He did not speak loud enough and said we needed to be quiet in order to hear him-not that he would have to speak up or anything!! We missed much of what... More

We bought tickets to do the tour since it was raining and seemed like a great idea. The guide had no control of the people on the bus - people talking on cell phones loudly, others yelling to their family members sitting in front of them and just general disruption. We couldn't hear a thing - we got off after... More

The Gray Line day tour is a good way to see where the main sites and different neighborhoods are in Montreal and decide where you want to go back. It is also a way to get a ride to St Joseph's Oratory and the top of Mount Royal Park. As others say, the quality of the tour guide will greatly... More
