It depends on the guide for the tour, however. We had a good guide who had a lot of nice stories to fill in the "traffic slow down areas". Nice to be able to ride the bus in different areas. the Montreal city was good for this type of tour too. We rode on the top and met a lot... More

We have taken many city bus tours and this one was the poorest. The tour guide (also the bus driver) had a lot of information to share, but usually pointed out the site before most of the passengers could see it and we would miss it. It was a rainy day, so it was not an option to ride open... More

This Hop-on/Hop-off bus tour takes about 2 hours to go throughout the city. From the plateau to downtown to the edge of Old Montreal, wonderful views are available from this open top double decker bus. Start at the Tourism Information station in downtown to take the full trip, or hop on and off at any of the 10 or so... More

My husband and I and other family members took the hop-on-hop-off circular tour of Montreal on a red double-decker bus. It was raining so we had to sit in the street-level seats (versus the open top-level) so the view was limited. The tour guide was very rude. When I asked a question that included a word she didn't know ("suburb")... More

We arranged a tour from Montreal to Quebec City on Sunday, 8/14. The driver refused to allow me to sit on the bus until Caucasian person from New Orleans complained. Prior to the compliant, I asked the driver twice if I could sit on the bus and get out of the rain and the driver refused. This is the start... More

We weren't sure if we wanted to do this tour or the hop on- hop off tour. GO WITH THIS ONE. This tour took almost 4 hours. We stopped at the most visited attractions to take the necessary pictures (Notre Dame, St. Joseph's, Mount Royal and Olympic Park). The bus was also air conditioned. That was important because it was... More

The NIGHT BUS! The night bus was terrible we went out of the way to see the casino which wasn't even that great. The... More

My husband and I usually take a bus tour through a city the first time we visit. Sometimes they're worth it and sometimes not. I'd say this tour was not worth the money. The tour guide gave us very little information and the stops were not all terribly convenient. The guide told us that the city of Montreal did not... More

1) Of the 4 tour guides, 1 was good, 1 was adequate, 1 was mediocre and 1 was awful 2) Half of the buses aren't double deckers which means you can't see the sights very well. If you are on a double decker, the lower level windows have screens, also inhibiting visibility It is a good way to learn the... More

Staying in Quartier International

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention center and retail space with a multi-colored glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterize the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
