Description: Urban Marmotte offers you great walking tours. Lasting from 3 to 6 hours...
Urban Marmotte offers you great walking tours. Lasting from 3 to 6 hours, we like taking the time needed to really show you around. Our tours are flexible and capture the backpacker's spirit: no rush, easy going, very informative and enjoyable. Our tours are a good mix of main attractions and places that are off the beaten tracks. Try the Grand Tour, our famous 6 hour walking tour, showing up to eight different areas and ambiances - the perfect tour to have before exploring the city by yourself. Or take another tour like "Old Montreal in Depth", a 3 hours tour that takes the time this historical area deserves or instead visit the Old Montreal at its best with the Old Montreal by Night Tour. See our website for a complete list of tours, schedules and rates. We also offer private tours.

I am writing to thank you for yesterday's tour of Montréal which Linda and I thoroughly enjoyed. Your unflagging enthusiasm, energy and entertaining presentation have enriched our stay in the city to say the least. We saw far more than we had thought possible and you gave so much information and insights at every stop and along the way. Finishing... More

Would highly recommend. We went on the six hour your which took us through some of the more well known parts of Montreal as well as some of the lesser known areas which you don't normally see on a tourist tour. Michel was super friendly and incredibly knowledgeable, answering all and any questions we had. We managed to book the... More

We took the 6 hour Grand Tour with Michel. I chose that tour based on the other reviews and Michel exceeded our expectations. Both, my husband & I enjoyed how knowledgeable with the history & area, spoke excellent English and shared tips & places that only the locals are familiar with. I recommend taking the tour on the first day... More

Definitely a must on your first day in Montreal! The tour was great, but at the end I felt like I was overloaded with information. Our guide did take us to some cool places which I don't think we would have found ourselves. We walked through a bunch of different neighborhoods, so we got better oriented around the city.

We booked a walking tour of Old Montreal for the evening. We were 3 large groups of adults from various countries along with a few who have lived in Montreal for quite a while. Everyone loved it and were impressed by all the interesting information!!! The guides - Michel, Martin and Martine were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. The groups were... More

Michel lead a fun, informative and entertaining adventure, inside and underground. Our group was mixed English and French speaking and as an English speaker never felt slighted. I've been to Montreal many times but learned so much today. I highly recommend this tour. I may do their outdoor tour, when it warms up😊.

I went on a private Urban Marmotte Grand Tour with Michel last month(December,2014). This was easily arranged through e-mails with Michel prior to my arrival in Montreal. I wanted to use my first full day in Montreal to get a good orientation to varied aspects(historical, architectural, cultural, etc.) of the central downtown area. I felt that I got exceptional value... More

Had a great 3 hour tour of Old Montreal with a wonderful guide Martine. We learned a lot about the area we would never have known on our own. Including where to get the best macarons in Montreal....you'll have to ask her :) !! Very reasonable cost to get a private tour. Definitely use Urban Marmotte when we visit Montreal... More

Michel is such a great guy and tour guide. As it was the last tour of the season, it was only my husband and I on the tour and it was awesome! Michel is very easy going and great to talk to. He knows so much about the city! This tour was perfect to do to see a lot of... More

We took this tour on the first day of our first visit to Montreal to get a feel for how it is laid out, how it developed, and get ideas for attractions to return to during our remaining time. This tour allowed us to meet and exceed all those goals. Michel is unbelievably knowledgeable about the history of the city;... More
