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.

Morning tour which was OK> Had breakfast and disembarked from the MS Maasdam. Had to walk about 2 blocks to catch the bus. A word to the wise: DO NOT DRINK A LOT OF FLUIDS before boarding the bus. Ours had a rest room in the rear which I used and when I came out, the driver mentioned that it... More

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

We always try and take a city tour when we visit a major city but this must be the most expensive one that we have come across. We paid £60 in New York but that was for 4 routes and a boat cruise. In Boston it was £28 that also included a boat cruise. This cost £56, as the only... More

Great idea and works well in larger cities but its lost in Montreal. Easier to walk the old city and those areas and take a public transport bus to places of interest. My advice is to save your money. Sorry to the company and their employees as they try hard, but there just isn't enough kick to the service.

We have taken many hop on and off bus tours in many cities and they all have their pros and cons. Go with the attitude that it's just a good way to get introduced to an unfamiliar city. There are several opportunities to hop off from the bus and explore. Our one complaint: it wasn't real clear where to grab... More

We were so impressed by the efficiency of the Grayline Hop-on-hop-off on our first day in beautiful Montreal. It went to all the best places and the commentary on each bus ( and a coach one time) were excellent - with some humour and lots of knowledge. However on our second day when we went to some specific places we... 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.
