We had a few rainy days in Montreal but we wanted to see the city. So we looked into Gray Line and were very pleased we did. Our tour guide was funny and knowledgeable and we were on tour for a total of four hours. If walking around is not an attractive option I highly suggest this service.

Tour in Quebec city was great but the one in Montreal left a lot to be desired. Actually went around twice to catch things we missed on the first trip. First guide was more dynamic than second but speakers were faulty and missed a lot. Priced to high for the quality of the tour.

They only offer 2 day passes for $55 - who needs 2 days of this in Montreal?? They also only offer 9 stops, making the bus much less useful for transportation around hotels. The commentary was not very insightful or exciting. I cannot recommend this to any visitor to this nice city. Which is a shame as the city could... More

One line we heard from more than one Canadian: "Canada has two seasons: winter and road construction." While this joke may not be unique to Montreal, it certainly was appropriate. Our shuttle to the tour bus headquarters was delayed due to gridlocked traffic and the bus we were scheduled to go on had left. After much confusion, it was decided... More

Of more than a dozen sights promised, all but 3 are only seen at 30 mph/50 kph. First stop, the bus parked 2 blocks away from Notre Dame at bottom of 30 degree hill climb. Majority of tourists on bus were elderly and could barely get close enough to take a picture before having to start back for the announced... More

This was a bi-lingual tour given by a chap who spoke very quickly and had trouble with the speakers. We sat downstairs because it was coldand what we did hear was informative. Why are all tour guides obsessed with the price of property? We found this in Toronto and Kingston. We always do a city tour where we can. This... More

Marginally informative, wholly unsatisfying, this is one day I wish I could get back. The shuttle was 20 minutes late picking us up from our hotel....standing outside waiting may have been the highlight of our day. We booked an English speaking tour, but the guide and driver catered to the 10% of the group that spoke French. The local guide,... More

We usually do a bus tour when we travel as of late. They are touristy but they do give a decent general over view of the city. Bus tours are what they are. The Gray Line Montreal tour is a 2 hour tour. There are 8 stops and a bus comes about every 30 minutes. The cost is $50.00 per... More

Costs 55 dollars for a 2 day pass but there is no 1day option. The majority of the onboard guides were excellent however while waiting for services the drivers/ ticket sellers were being abusive about their colleagues including their time keeping and sick records. We were given a timetable which indicated a 15 minute service but on day 2 this... More

I thought those would be a good idea to take a bus tour. There are not enough stops. This is more of a drive-by tour. You don't have an opportunity to sight see. Maybe the hop on and hop of tour is better. Our tour driver was annoying. I wanted to know more about the culture or get some tourist... 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.
