My husband and I took this dinner cruise and had a nice time. The wait staff were welcoming and the food was very good. They had a singer and piano player on board who played tasteful music and were just right-not too loud. We enjoyed going up top on deck to catch some lovely night breeze throughout the evening. It...

The tour guide flips between both languages and could answer any question you threw at her. The cruise is slow enough that you don't miss anything while she's lecturing in French. She even translated questions so everyone would understand. It was a great history lesson and a nice rest from all the walking.

We took this tour because we got a buy 1 get 1 free in a book of coupons. I'm glad we only paid for one fare as you can see most sights that you see in this cruise from the pier. You go about .5 of a mile from the dock in each direction. You can however order a drink... More

We booked this boat for 150 graduates this summer. All aged 16-18. Food was decent, dj was great but you truly have to experience it at least once on a weather friendly night! Staff was great!

We took the 90 minute tour on a very comfortable boat. Drinks and food menu with waiter service is available and the tour is narrated in both French and English. Most of the boat provides indoor seating under a glass canopy and there is also some deck seating on the stern with some cushy chairs.

We took the 60-minute tour on the boat, which is a nice-looking, glass-enclosed vessel. The guide was pleasant and the service slow but friendly. Unfortunately, there really wasn't much to see in the tour offered. The boat went upriver to the bridge, past the park with the dome, past the tower of Old Montreal, then down past the cubist apartments,... More

Sorry folks but this was not a riveting hour long adventure for me. It was a relaxing experience, I'll give it that. So relaxing that it was a little humdrum. Our tour guide was pleasant but not engaging with the crowd. Her presentation was lack luster and information just OK. Certainly did not feel the need to offer her a... More

Not much to see but a nice ride on the St. Lawrence- especially because the boat is air conditioned. The people are talkative and the acoustics loud which makes hearing the tour guide difficult. However, it made for a nice afternoon. The sight are nice, the food was limited on the 90 minute tour but we had fun anyway.

Pleasant trip with well informed guide, BUT not too much to see. If you fancy an hour on a boat, beer in hand, its OK. If you want to know anything significant about the history of Montreal, there are far better ways to find out. The trip is constrained by the geography of the St Laurence river, and struggles to...
