We were walking around Montreal and stumbled into Fitz & Follwell, while checking out the cashier told us about their upcoming bike tour the next morning. We decided to sign up and it was definitely worth it! The tour guides are fantastic, stopping to give some history and highlights with enthusiasm along the way. We also had a great group of people with us and it was nice getting to know everyone on our brief stops. I would recommend this is one of the first things you do on your visit to Montreal because they point out great restaurants and other locations to explore on your own later!!!

A Fitz & Follwell tour is definitely the best way to get one's bearings in the layout of Montreal. Our guides Jean-Michel and Mimi were absolutely wonderful and gave us insight into the city's past as well as the current issues facing it today. The pace was excellent, and the guides were so generous with their time that they spent an additional hour with us. Had it not been for this tour, we would have missed some true gems of Montreal!

The tour guides were amazing, and so knowledgable. They immediately felt like a part of our group of friends. The tour allowed us to see so much more of the city than we could have otherwise. It makes you feel like a local. The smoothies we receieved at the end were so good, and we went for more later during our stay. The staff was friendly, the tour was so organized and made us feel comfortable. The equipment that was provided was in great shape. We got a bar for energy but nothing for lunch, it didn't really matter. They even accomodated our group by allowing us to stop in for bagels at a popular shop that was on our route. An unforgettable experience!!

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Hidden Gems tour. Everything was well organized and ran smoothly even though we started out with some rain. The tour guides were great and really showed us around their favorite parts of Montreal. Highly recommend this tour company!

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience at our shop.

We here at Fitz & Follwell love showing families around the neighbourhoods of Montreal! We however ask that reservations are made ahead of time so that we can book our guides for the tours. During the peak summer months our tours often book up in advance, therefore though same-day last minute reservations are sometimes possible, we can never guarantee it.

On our regular tours we have set the minimum age at 13 based upon past experience over our touring years. Though Montreal is a very safe and friendly city to ride, our regular tour routes may pass through some busy areas and run up to 4 hours long making it a tad challenging for some kiddos.

For families with children between the ages of 8 and 12, we offer separate private or semi-private tours that stick to shorter routes favouring bike paths and quieter streets. Kids love these tours (and the bagels or gelato especially).

The same equipment (24" bikes, kids helmets) are also available on a rental basis.
By next Spring 2013 we will also have a few children's trailers available for rental as well!

Hope to see you back to Montreal, and please call us to make a reservation ahead of time so we can be sure to have a guide and bicycles available!

Cheers,
Shea Mayer
