What a great start to our Montreal visit! Danny is a spectacular guide with deep knowledge of the city. More than that, his interest in Montreal wall art, food, city life, culture and current social movements is extensive and freely shared. We got a great overview of Montreal in our first afternoon, allowing us to focus on more specific bike rides and points of interest the rest of our trip.

Danny also went far above and beyond his 3 hour tour obligations. We had 2 flat tires and a related bike problem on our own bikes (not bikes provided by Spade and Palacios for the tour), and he solved our problems with his knowledge of local bike shops. It also meant he stayed with us for 4-1/2 hours! Can't say enough about this tour as an introduction to Montreal and Danny as a leader!!

What a fantastic tour. You'll see Montreal in a completely different way, from beautiful winding, green alleyways to bike paths to great views of the old port. And they serve an incredible lunch as part of the package. You'll like this company.

The entire experience was great. Tour guide(s) did a wonderful job and the chosen sites were very interesting. The picnic lunch in the park gave everyone a chance to get to know each other a bit. Well organized and worth the money.

DANNY was amazing!! What a fun way to explore! I loved seeing and learning about all the different murals around the city, biking through the Entertainment district and learning about the festivals and shows that take place each year, biking through Gay Village and learning about their inclusivity for all (as well as a fabulous 11 day festival that takes place every August), admiring the unique colors and architecture of the houses along the way, and getting some great photos of the magnificent view at Old Port. DANNY was super knowledgeable about all things Montréal, not to mention funny too, and takes the time to get to know each person on the tour to be able to recommend and point out other places of interest. Thank you so much for making my first day in Montréal a great one!

Tom was absolutely fantastic and very informative. Not to strenuous and the best way to gain your bearings if it’s your first time in the city. We would definitely take another tour.

My husband, 2 college age children, one 15 year old and I did the bike tour. We also did the Beyond the Basiclica tour. Both were great experiences for all of us. We were fortunate to have Danny for both tours. He was a wealth of information, gave helpful advice and was easy going and fun. We would highly recommend the tours. Great company and great people. You will not be dissappointed.

My wife and I really enjoyed this 4 hour tour! Our guide, Danny, was easy going and personable with a nice sense of humor and full of "non touristy" local knowledge and insight. It made the tour feel like you were biking with a friend. The quality of the pink bikes is top notch! You get a blend of street art, culture, views, history along with great tips for restaurants and other places to go. Tour includes a delicious lunch which you eat in the park, served with local craft beer. If we had the time we would have liked to take one of their walking food tours, but that will have to be next time! Merci!

Our guide Danny was warm and funny and full of information. Such a fantastic way to become familiar with Montreal. We saw and learned so much, as well as getting to know people who were strangers at the start of the tour. A delicious lunch, complete with a huge tomato from Danny's own garden! Great recommendations for the rest of our trip. We highly recommend this experience! And love the pink bikes.

So happy you got to enjoy your outing with Danny :) He's a real charmer isn't he (and he's got the biggest tomatoes in Montreal) Our bike tour is such a good way to pick up on the local and current culture, a touch of history, art and amazing public spaces and parks. And we love having small groups that give people a chance to go from strangers to friends. Hit us up on your next visit to join us for another one of our tours :) I

Our cycling tour was converted to a walking because of bad weather but that didn’t change how much fun I had and if anything meant we got to experience more as we did different bits of the tours! We started off seeing murals and various buildings and alleyways around the Plateau area which was so interesting. Our guide Tom answered all our questions and gave us the perfect level of information about the city, it’s history and things going on in the city today. We enjoyed a great beer tasting with a fatoush salad then made our way to the Jean Talon Market for some excellent charcuterie, cheese, iced cider and sorbet tastings! I would thoroughly recommend this tour company if you want to see Montreal from a locals take and the cheat sheet they give you is very useful!

Heya! Glad the bad weather didnt cramp your style and we still showed you a good time! Thanks for the fantastic feedback. We aim to showcase a variety of Montreal's charms and give our guests a real local's perspectives. Thanks for joining! Thom is such a gem and always manages to convey his passion for our city in every tour he does. Make sure you make it back for the bike tour on your next visit, we'll make some calls with Mother Nature and make sure the skies are clear for you next time ;) Cheers

We had a great time on the tour. Daniel and Terry were very friendly and knowledgeable. We loved seeing the murals and neighborhoods of Montreal. The lunch in the park was delicious. The biking was fun and not too challenging. Definitely worth it!

We also aim for the pace to not be too intense, so everyone can enjoy without feeling like their limbs will fall off at the end. Thanks for joining! Cheers
