“History Lesson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We walked to Old Montreal from Phillip Square area. We went on a horse carriage ride. Attendant from horse ride was a great tour guide. He was so informative. We learned alot about Old Montreal. We found that the city was very clean! Would definately go back.

“So cool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

If youve never been to Europe or cant afford to go, Montreal is a great substitute. In Old Montreal you get the feeling that you are in Europe. The streets are narrow and the stores have an old feel. Great food all around and street performers as well.

“A taste of Paris without the hassle of flying there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Love Love Love Old Montreal in the spring, summer and fall. Holding hands walking down the old cobblestone roads while the horse drawn caleche's trot by is definitely a taste of Paris. Restaurants on every corner are fabulous. Stay in one of the boutique hotels for the best deal and service.

“Canada's little Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This area is beautiful the buildings are old and the cobblestone streets take you right to Europe where we have travelled many times. In the summer many of the streets are closed to traffic and the breeze (hopefully cuz its hot) rolls up off the River. This is the ideal spot for people to grab an ice-cream, have a glass of wine or beer or just walk with friends and enjoy the scenery. The restaurants are all good - in fact I have been here at least 6 times and NEVER eaten a bad meal. I especially love how you can walk along in the evening and look into the different restaurants many of them have their windows open and people will often talk to you and tell you how delicious their meal is. In Montreal DINING is the thing to do. NOTE- People usually don't eat dinner until 8 pm or later and SLEEP IN - not much happens before 10 am in the morning. Merci
