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.

After spending most of our trip seeing Montreal from the land, it was fun and exciting to see it from the water! The tour guide was very informative and gave the tour in both French and English. You learned a lot about the history of Montreal as well as the World's Fair and how the rivers have helped Montreal become... More

I though it would be a bit boring but it wasn't. Two hours is the perfect amount of time you want to spend taking a view of the city, various attractions and eat a -surprisingly good- "smoked meat" (pastrami sandwich) accompanied by beer! I went with my two boys (3 and 5) and they loved it. It's a thing you... More

Just an average overview cruise. It was hard to keep up with the commentary as the director split it up half in French, half in English. It didn't seem that a thought was compete before she started another. Bathrooms and cocktails both on the boat made it super convenient.

We took our daughter out for some sight seeing while we were in Montreal. It was a hot day, so we sat out on the top deck. The guide spoke about the sights throughout our trip, but most times it was hard to hear him. The tour itself took us to some different places than other ones my husband and... More

A lovely trip around Montreal with some great views. Rather slow when it enters the current which is very fast flowing. A great way to see Montreal

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

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.
