We opted for this to see the sights quickly. It cost $60 Canadian each. That gives you two days. Our first guide was good with clear English but the second time we used it, the French was too strong. We struggled to understand him. The buses run every half hour, or close to. Useful service but the only thing we couldnt have walked to was the mountain.

Guides were fine - three different ones over the two days as we used the bus to get around the city. We did not know we were supposed to keep our paper wristbands from one day to the next! It worked out fine but no one told us. The buses are “glorified” school buses and kind of rickety & old. All in all okay. Easier than trying to drive around & pay big money to park when (and if!!) you can find it.

The first day we went the whole tour. We really liked our enthusiastic guide and the narrated tour. She had facts and figures for everything we passed. The second day we rode half way around so we could get off at a stop we liked the day before. This guide wasn't half as good as the first day! He thought of himself as rather funny, but left out so much we had heard the day before. So it really does matter who you have as a tour guide. If you don't like the guide, get off and try another one!

I do not know where to start with all that was wrong with this tour.
While I received confirmation that my payment was made, I received no information from Gray Line as to where to pick up the tour bus, the itinerary of the tour or other details that would have been helpful. I had to call to find out this info and no one told me that you have to go to their location. It isn't a bad walk from Boneventure metro stop but I was under the impression that I could pick it up at the #3 stop that was near to my hotel. The problem was no one told us there was a bike race that day and ALL of Old Town was closed to traffic. No one contacted us. After many frustrating emails and calls, we got to their location at noon. We wanted to start the tour at 10am. Plus we only got to experience half the tour since Old Town was closed. Robert the guide had no interesting information to share about Montreal. He repeated boring facts like John Lennon and Yoko stayed at one of the hotels. Who cares. I'm not sure of the value of on and off if you were to use it for Old Town. We did not use our tickets/wrist band for the 2nd day. Do not book this tour.

Once we found the pickup spot the trip was fine. Grey Lines doesn't simply offer a map online or even specific pickup addresses. Calling them they needed our ticket info before sharing any info. That was a list of addresses for a town we're not familiar with. We literally saw the HOHO bus drive by and ran to catch up. On board we were able to get a map and now know all we need to know.

The tour guides were very informative and friendly. Montreal is quite spread out but the buses run every 15 minutes in the summer so it is easy to catch one. We were given a list of stops and times which was helpful.

According to the directions provided to us, we could board the bus at any of the stops including Notre Dame Cathedral which is near our hotel. We were instructed to be at the pick up spot 10 minutes before the departure time of 10 A.M. We were there at 9:30. We waited until 10:40. No bus. The information also says that there is a bus every 15 minutes, so by the time we left there should have been at least one bus. Maybe the initial pick up is at a particular stop, but the directions don’t say that. I think the instructions to customers need to be made much clearer. This was a waste of our money.

We'd arrived late afternoon in Montreal and took on of the last tours for the day. It started out well, touring the new and old cities but a long drive out to hills was just a waste of time.

It was a hot spring day (30 degrees) and we headed for the top deck. But we couldn’t hear the guide up there (there were no head phones and the tour was in English only). So we headed back downstairs, where the sound was as bad as upstairs, plus it was oppressively hot. Back upstairs we went, resigned to not hearing the guide. At some point we were told to get off and wait for another bus, as this one was done for the day. It was suggested that we tip the guide. Since we could not hear what she had to say, we didn’t. At the stop we waited for a while, then decided to walk back to our hotel. At $114 for the two of us, this was a complete waste of money; the worst hop-on-hop-off tour we’ve ever done.

This seems to be a local venture albeit with a national company attached - it is NOT the traditional buses you may have seen in international locations. We took 4 buses in all - they were all dusty. Not filthy, but not clean. We started at 11am so it is not as though we were at the end of the day. We had one bilingual tour which was informative, but we zoned out during the french part and because the voice and accent was the same - forgot to zone back in again! The others were all english, but one guide stayed downstairs and we couldn't hear what she was saying because the sound was garbled through the speakers. It is one of the most expensive tours we have ever had to take and we did not need two days (even though we were here two days) so it was a waste of money to a large extent. We were a week too early for the evening tour, so that may be interesting. The only real value was being taken to Mount Royal - and Uber would do that for a lot less money if you are travelling with more than one person.

The bus is easy and may be good if you are tight for time, but we were less than impressed.
