What to expect
Get fitted with a bike at a central location in Montreal before setting out on a specially designed cycling route through the city's key neighborhoods. You’ll ride to Mont-Royal Park and the McGill University campus, then follow Montreal’s longest protected bike path into the downtown core. When you reach the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, get great views along the Saint Lawrence River from the historic port, a favorite for walkers and cyclists. Throughout the bike tour, make multiple stops to learn about the neighborhoods you're riding through, getting some background on Montreal history. From the edge of the Saint Lawrence River, loop back to the Plateau and Mont Royal, where you’ll find some of the city’s hippest shops and cafes, then finish the bike tour at the original departure point.

Exciting, interesting, and the most fun of my trip
Oct 2019
We had Martin for our tour guide and he was fabulous! He took us on the back roads with all the trees changing colors and gave us the history as well as the current events that were happening. We went to a bagel shop and saw them made as well as eating them, we rode through parks and had a truly lovely time

Our tour guide Catherine was excellent.
Oct 2019
We were a group of 3 women from Texas in Montreal for the first time. We booked with Fitz and Follwell on a recommendation from friends. It was a terrific tour and the company in general managed everything from booking to tour end seamlessly and easily. Our group was small (5 people in total) which was nice. Our guide Catherine was fun, knowledgeable, and shared many tips about seeing the city beyond the tour. We did several things that she suggested and are so glad we did (Aura show at the Basilique, Schwartz's, poutine....). She gave us such a positive intro to Montreal. The day happened to be beautiful and sunny which made it even better. We felt very safe with Catherine and we learned a lot. It was the best part of our 4-day trip.

Tour guide Lea was exuberant and seemed to genuinely enjoy what she was doing - which sounds way easier than it probably is! We had a diverse group, from Germany and Hong Kong and the U.S. and she made sure to accommodate everyone, wait for questions, and in general just made us feel welcome. Her appreciation of the city where she has lived for the past 10 years came through at every stop. (And the woman who helped us as we arrived couldn't have been nicer.)

Fabulous tour by Tom
Oct 2019
The tour was led by Tom who has a depth of knowledge about the city its history, architecture,cultures, languages and politics along with a good sense of humor and patience with the group. I am in my mid 60s and was easily able to keep up and enjoy the ride around Montréal on a beautiful autumn afternoon.

Excellent tour led by Cat
Very good tour led by Cat. She was enthusiastic and informative and led the group safely. The route incorporated lots of sights and used the good network of bike paths. She left us with plenty of ideas and recommendations on how to spend our remaining time in the city.

A Great Way to Experience Montreal!
Sep 2019
Tom was an exceptional tour guide, very knowledgeable and entertaining! We were able to visit many different neighborhoods in the three hours time, and learned many interesting facts and tidbits of information about Montreal. Plus, it was great to get some exercise to counter the calories from all of the delicious Montreal food!
