Phoned them again at 8.30am, were told it was running late & was on its way. Phoned again at 9am, were told the coach had started the tour... More

We took this 2 hour bus tour of Montreal on a recent family trip. It was a really great way to see the highlights of the city. The ticket is good for 2 consecutive days, so this gives you plenty of time to hop off and visit the sights that interest you. The tour takes you all over the city,... More

We booked the night tour online. When we arrived to redeem our tickets, the office was closed. My husband called the number and we were told we could go ahead and get on the bus. It wasn't running.

The 2-hour narrated bus tour provided us with a sense of what to see and what to avoid during our 3-days in Montreal. Frank, our driver on two of the tours, made dining suggestions, gave directions for hard-to-find spots, and was provided the lore of the city in great detail over the time we spent on the enclosed bus. We... More

We had a great local guide on the bus and enjoyed our tour of the city, getting to all the spots including up to the top of the Mount Royal Park (a real hike on foot!). We also took the night tour (extra $10 on day ticket) which is unguided and offbeat going through the old port area which seems... More

This was my first Hop On/Off tour and I'm sorry we booked it. The price was for 2 days $55. a person The stops weren't all that great. The first day we sat inside (no room up top).

I would not recommend this tour. The guide was good but that was about all that was good. The bus was not in good condition and the herky-jerky driving was really rather painful. It's not worth $55 - the only option available - two day pass only is offered. There are not enough stops for hop on/hop off - I... More

Overall, this was a pretty good tour and gave a good overview of the history of Montreal and the significant areas. We stayed at a hotel that was just 5 minutes from one of the stops so made it easy to get on and off from the hotel. Website says you have to go to the ticket office to get... More

The guide did not tell anything and the tour finished earlier. It was like walking without a guide across Old Montréal.

I joined Gray Line for day trip to Mount Tremblant and the Laurentians. Even though I was waiting for the bus outside the hotel at confirmed time, the pick up bus came 20 min late and I was just about to make my own arrangement to the gathering point at 8am. The itinerary arranged was perfect and the bus driver... 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.
