Urban Marmotte offers you great walking tours.

Lasting from 3 to 6 hours, we like taking the time needed to really show you around. Our tours are flexible and capture the backpacker's spirit: no rush, easy going, very informative and enjoyable. Our tours are a good mix of main attractions and places that are off the beaten tracks.

Try the Grand Tour, our famous 6 hour walking tour, showing up to eight different areas and ambiances - the perfect tour to have before exploring the city by yourself. Or take another tour like "Old Montreal in Depth", a 3 hours tour that takes the time this historical area deserves or instead visit the Old Montreal at its best with the Old Montreal by Night Tour.

See our website for a complete list of tours, schedules and rates. We also offer private tours.

Michel met us at Dorchester Square at 11, and then we walked all over - downtown, underground, International district, old city, Chinatown, Latin quarter, Village, Arts area, Plateau, whew!! He took us places and showed us things that, if we had wandered on our own, we would never have seen. He was so friendly, knowledgeable, and approachable. We had a... More

I loved this tour. It was interactive and very informative. I live in Montreal and learned a lot. Michel was very good at explaining in both languages and was conscious of the needs of all members of the group. Highly recommended!

Great way to see Montreal. We did 5 hour tour in a blizzard (1 foot of snow). Frederic our guide was excellent and used underground Montreal to take breaks from the snow. A great day! Wear boots!

We always try to do a walking tour when visiting a city for the first time. Normally these are 2 - 3 hours, but having four full days to spend in Montreal, we were attracted to the 6 hour Grand Tour offered by Michel, We booked in advance and paid upfront. On the day (a Saturday in late Sept) we... More

We are not normally tour people, would rather explore on our own but we were so glad we made the choice to go along with Michel on his Grand Walking tour. Michel asked what sights we had already seen and where we wanted to go, he then tailored our 6 hour walk accordingly. Michel’s knowledge about Montreal is astounding; the... More

Was really looking forward to spending the day seeing Montreal on foot. For various reasons tour got canceled and despite agreeing to pay for a private tour a guide could not be located and it was my one day to see the city. If you book with this company check at least 24 hours before your tour to ensure the... More

Michel took us on his "Grand Tour." He tailored it to our interests and our pace. He was friendly, knowledgeable, a good communicator, all-in-all an excellent tour guide. He tried to help us seek out a particular souvenir we were seeking for our son. We got a much better sense of areas we had already visited on our own, and... More
