“We loved it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

We (3 adults) loved this tour! We saw it online and knew immediately we had to take it, if only for the pure absurdity of it. But we all ended up loving it!

The guide was great, she was funny and very informative. We had some traffic problems but she was good about thinking up other facts and making light of the situation. The view from the water was beautiful! I recommend this as a light-hearted, fun tour for anyone!

“Excellent experience, cannot recommend it enough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Great value tour, and if you only have a few hours like we did, a great way to see the city from a unique perspective. Our tour guide was a younger guy, who apparently learned his English from watching TV and movies, was very knowledgeable and able to easily switch back and forth between French and English without dumbing down either commentary.

He had good humour and clearly knew his stuff. Sure the jokes were corny, but who cares!? Would definitely recommend it. I have been to Montreal several times, and I learned a lot in the short time I was aboard the duck.

“A Great Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

This tour was great! Benoit was the PERFECT tour guide. He had just the right mix of information and humor. He fluidly went from English to French with all of the information. For the price, I do wish the tour was slightly longer, but it seemed to cover all the major places and buildings for a quick, fun, overview of the city,

“Not the Boston Duck Tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

My wife and I decided to see Old Montreal via the amphi-bus tour, it seemed to be a great way to see some the city and also the waterfront. We have been on the duck tours in Boston and really enjoy the way they bring some humor into the overall experience.

The tour was presented in both english and french and the narrator transitioned seamlessly between languages. The tour was about 75 minutes and included about 45 minutes of driving though old Montreal and 30 minutes in the water. The guide did a great job of explaining the history of the area and the local landmarks. She mixed in some humor as well helping to create a more relaxed atmosphere.

Overall it was a good way to get familiar with the area and spend a little time on the water. I do wish they added a little more humor to the experience but realize that perhaps this area is a little more serious then the Boston area.

“Fun, but a little pricey.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

The Montreal Amphibus Tour, like other duck tours I've been on, is a nice combination of sightseeing bus and boat tour. The tour guide definitely knew the area well, as did the driver/captain. The jokes may have been a little lame at times, but the views were great and the opportunities for photos are many. My only complaint is the price. Like many tours, this is a fun, unique experience, but if you're with a small group it can be a little dissuading.
