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...

After spending a few hectic days touring around Montreal, my husband and I wanted to spend a few hours just relaxing in the sun, and enjoying the view from the water. This 90 minute cruise fit the bill nicely. It's a good way to get another perspective of the city, and to learn a little more about the sights and... More

We have used the dinner cruise as an opportunity to show Montreal to our customer. The evening was very nice except for the dinner. Several of us had major stomach issues after eating the dinner on the boat. Most probably an issue with the quality or cleanliness in the kitchen.

I really enjoyed the commentator, he was fluent in English and French, very knowledgeable about all sights, interesting and educational narration. He even came to our table and spoke with us, we felt very... More

Having found short river cruises an excellent way to see more of a City we decided to take a 90 minute river cruise in Montreal. We had a nice couple of beers, a long rest in the sun and a chat for a while. The cruise comprised a trip in one direction and back again, a criuse in another direction... More

If you would like a river cruise experience in Montreal, please avoid this company and their boats. I had planned to enjoy 90 minutes on the St. Lawrence River on my birthday, and with no explanation, Le Bateau decided to cancel the only scheduled cruise on 5/26. You can not just make a reservation with Le Bateau; you have to... More

Very bad catering food, try their microwaved fillet mignon or frozen "carpaccio" my dog would probably not touch it. Nasty service, absolutely incredible killing noise. Don't even try to speak to each other! No air and no escape. Please save 125$ per personne have a nice walk in the old port and nice dinner in the old town.
