This area of old Montreal was setup nicely for special events. Unfortunately we traveled just after nye and nothing was happening except the ice skating. Cool space. Great views of the old city and the river. Nice park. Bet it would be amazing in warm weather months. Would be fun to grab food and sit out by the river to... More

We were very dissappointed to be advised once the cruise had commenced that the person that usually gives the commentary was off sick that day. Had we known in advance we would have gone another day or with another company. We complained to box office at end of trip to obtain refund but had no success. After emailing the company... More

My sister & my daughter & I, we really enjoyed going on the 90 minute cruise. We ate lunch which was good. It was a good relaxing cruise. I wish that the cruise took longer though.

Food was amazing. Our server, Dominique was amazing; extremely attentive and friendly. Nice environment. Music was great; live music, not too loud and classy. Windows were foggy so we didn't see much. It would have been nice if there was some narrative of places in Montreal that we were sailing past. Perhaps some history of the city, we had no... More

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to relax and learn some history about the old port, this is the way to go! We had a perfect afternoon. Sophie was the narrator and spoke perfect English! We had a wonderful waitress. The drinks and food was reasonably priced as well for a specialty location. My husband and I both... More

We took a 90 minutes afternoon cruise on the St-Lawrence river to see Montreal from another angle. Lucky for us, only 30 % of the boat war full. The bateau mouche is a replica of the ones that navigate Paris and other European cities. On a sunny and hot day it is a nice activity because you are on the... More

We took the 1 1/2 hour tour on Labor Day and really enjoyed it. There is also a 60 minute tour, which, I think would be too short and the dinner tours which are 3 hours long. I went on one of those about 15 years ago and loved it because the cruising goes to the Boucherville Islands on top... More

We booked the 6-course 5-star gourmet dinner cruise on a Wednesday night. Basically, we paid extra to ensure window seating, but we were treated like royalty. The meal was all-inclusive, including adult beverages. It is possible to order an upgraded adult beveragefor an additional small fee. Food was good and the views were good. After dinner, we were coaxed out... More

Nice relaxing boat ride around the edge of the city. We did the hour tour. It may have been too short. Good seating and drinks and food are available.

Thie 60 minute tour is informative and interesting. Great experience but goes so quickly. They offer drinks and snacks after boarding. The tour is narrated in both French and English but is hard to hear over noises and talking of other guests.

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.
