From the old port of Montreal, you can take your bike or just go by foot on a small ferry and cross over to the South shore of the city. Cost is under 12$. The ride itself is easy, mostly flat throughout once you're on the south shore. The differents views of Montreal are breathaking. You can easily vary you... More

This feel a little like Europe... but it has its own soul... it is great for walking visiting, eating in restaurants... see some history or the numerous performing artists in the street... especially during the summer season...

We spent a number of hours at the Old Port walking along the river looking at the shops on the pier and the people enjoying the water. There was a cruise ship at the dock which added to the ambiance. There was a lively atmosphere and we enjoyed ourselves.

Part of old Montreal, cobble stone roads and laneway, it is so beautiful when you see it in sunshine or when its lit up in evening. Catch a bite in the local restaurants, enjoy a bowl of ice cream or sit down and listen to local jazz performance. It's very much the way you can imagine how Montreal life would... More

Old Port of Montréal has so many activites to do. Suggest you rent a bike and just bike around. Than take the ferry with your bike on the Longueuil Ferry and take the bike trail. Just beautiful and its an excellent adventure.

I found the Old Port of Montreal and Old Montreal blended....but one adds equally to the other. They have done a good job of making the waterfront accessible to the public and drawing people down there. Parking is good; there is a lot to do; acitvities for the kids; on water activities available also. It's worth the trip

We spent time in the shade along the water at the picnic tables. It's difficult to find sandwiches for takeout. And you really have to search for classic, European style supplies: cheese, bread, wine, olives - we brought ours from the outdoor market - but if you can, eat lunch at the tables. It's lovely.

We ended up there while we explored Old Montreal and it was one of those attraction we have not heard about and were reay impressed and happy that we've seen it! We also did the ferry to the island and it was great. Not expensive, so affordable and we really enjoyed the atmosphere in St. Helene! Worth a visit :)

This is almost as much fun as the far more expensive river cruise we took. Clean and nice. Immediately adjacent to Vieux Montreal.

If you live on the south shore (and not only) this is a great ferry ride, inexpensive, not too long and not too short, you leave the car in parking lot in Longueuil and go downtown for a stroll or visit an attraction without the car or traffic. A great idea is to stop on St Helene island, half way---... More
