We had been taking the Hop on, Hop Off buses for two days with no hitch ever-- nice guides, good commentary, reliable service. We were waiting at the Belvedere Camillier Houde stop, on a large parking lot in the Mount Royal park, on Saturday, July 12, 2014, at 3:00 PM. It was a lovely day, and we were standing where... More

Took the city orientation tour and there were several problems: the bus forgot to pick us up from our hotel and when phoned suggested it was our fault for not calling earlier, air con on the bus was freezing so we needed jackets on a summer day, the driver spoke mainly in French despite it being a bilingual tour. He... More

We booked this before arriving and had great expectations. I rarely, if ever use tours but we has one free day from our conference in Montreal. The tour portion was very good, it hit all the highlights and gave us an idea what/ where to spend the three hours of free time they give you. Unfortunately, for us we had... More

We had high expectations going into our Gray Line bus experience. We started off taking the evening tour which we thought was very well done and gave us a great overview of the city. The driver and tour guide were funny and went into very small detail that evening and told us that the tour guides the next day would... More

We purchased the evening Hop On Hop Off. It was terrible! They were scheduled to be at our stop at 7:30 and didn't show up until 8:15. There was no tour guide and they didn't stop unless you walked down and asked the drive to pull over! We rode around and if we didn't have a map would have no... More

I love hop on/hop off buses. It is a great way to get an overview of any city you are visiting. And it wasn't any different in Montreal. The tour covers all the main areas and sights of the city. The first tour guide Andre was very good. Very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. He also handed out personal "must see/do"... More

We've been on quite a few of these hop on hop off bus tours in many countries and this was the worst. We went on twice and had two tour guides who were just horrible! One we couldn't understand at all and the other who could use some improvement. It did give us a somewhat better sense of areas we... More

We have been on more than 30 hop on/hop off tours, usually they give you "your bearings" of each City, not this one but! The tour cost €100 for 2 adults, which really, really isn't worth it. The tour appeared to have 9 stops and countless long waits while they take payment on the bus. The journey doesn't give you... More

It does its job, easy transportation for most attractions in the city. However the bus was very old and worse of all, the tour guide was very rude. Hopped on at 11:30am this morning on bus 481, tried to go straight upstairs but was stopped by the tour guard half way, and was told there were only 2 seats upstairs,... More

My mother and I did the hop on, hop off tour as part of a short trip to Montreal. We were on the first bus of the day and did a full loop before doing any hopping. The full loop is 2 hours and we were bombarded with loads of information. Sometimes it was a hard to keep track but... More
