I specifically selected this boat due to it's second floor. I called Claire at corporate sales and related this desire. She agreed that we were to have my 30 plus guests all alone on the second floor of the boat. The rationale was simple, a private event were my clients could socialize amongst themselves and if we had additions to... More

We took this tour to get a view of Montreal from the water. Since the City is a working port, it's fairly industrial so the views aren't that great. But it was still interesting to see the City from that vantage point. The guide was hard to understand due to her heavy accent so that was a bit off-putting. We... More

After several hours walking we decided to go on the bateau mouche. We did not eat, it was an afternoon tour. So it s ok enough, it s not the best ever. The tour is "limited" because Montreal does not offer what some other cities could give (sorry people from Montreal). The crew was nice. Toilets were doubtful. It seems... More

I recently attended a 3 hour cruise and left the experience with positive thoughts. Located in the Old Port of Montreal, a heavily tourist filled area, the boat tour has a charming allure, especially for those looking for a unique and romantic dining experience. The target clientele appeared to be couples. The staff was attentive, polite and diligent. Meal wise,... More

This was a great 3 hour evening trip. The extra $$ for the window set was worth it. Take the trip to the outdoor back seating area during dinner to enjoy parts of the trip.

We had a really relaxing and interesting 90 minute long trip around the port of Montreal with a very informative commentary. You could sit inside or out and there were lovely comfy sofas to sit on out on the deck. A waitress came to take orders for drinks and snacks so it was all very civilised.

We went to the Bateau mouche for a friends birthday dinner. The food was ok. I had the filet minion and the meat was chewy and hard. I don't recommend you bring your kids as there is no space to move while you eat. They cram the tables and chairs pretty tightly. It was nice to sit upstairs to get... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
