Loved our walk around the old city. Lots of cobbled streets with fascinating little ships here and there. Plenty of eateries to choose from. Definitely worth the walk. Take your time, and just enjoy the scenery.

The Old Montreal is the best place in Montreal in my opinion. I like to walk there and go to a nice cafe.

Although it was -11 degrees and there was about 6” of snow, this was still an enchanting place to visit. Cathedral was beautiful and lots of pretty streets and old architecture. Interesting museums and cafes to stop at to warm up. Would love to go...More

If you like architecture, walking in Old Montreal is a real treat. Beautiful old building surrounded by modern works. The clash between the two makes the visit special

Tour to Old Quebec City was the remarkable experience to know Quebec's history and the Francophone culture.

There really is nothing quite like it anywhere in North America. From the cobbled roads, to the gargoyles, to the narrow streets it transports you to another era. Wonderful time.

What a great city. So Much to see and do. Definitely returning. Don’t forget to have the smoke meat at Rubens so delicious. All the old buildings and the Cobblestone roads. Can’t wait to go back.
