There are a lot of good things about the Bateau-Mouche and the little flaws I've seen there ould easily be corrected. The boat is cute and clean and the views are nice. We did have a really good time. What could be fixed: The host. Her english was very limited and clearly, even in french it was obvious that she... More

My wife and I did this boat tour for our anniversary dinner. The meal we had was great! Also had musical entertainment. The tour along the St-Lawrence river was nice, loved when we went into the large rapids. The boat is a power boat designed for navigating the large and fast rapids of the river. It's the highlight of the... More

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

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.
