“Awesome”
Reviewed September 11, 2011

I would totally recommend this tour. Ten people were led by Stephanie (yes, she lives up to the hype) on a three hour tour around Montreal. The biking is easy, the bikes are well maintained. Definately take a couple of minutes before the tour and get acclimated to the bike. The majority of the cycling is done in bike lanes or on bike paths, so you are not fighting with cars for space. We decided to keep the bikes for the rest of the day for an additional $5.00 and it was well worth it. We took the bikes out to Parc Jean Drapeau and biked around the park and the Gilles Villenueve track.

Also, it is convienently located on the LaChine Canel bike trail.

“Great ride - Great Guide and no silly orange vests!”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

This bicycle tour was not the highest rated, but is definitely the best. Our guide, Stephanie, was a great guide and the location - right along the bike path is superb. It is right across a pedestrian bridge from the Atwater outdoor market so you can go eat lunch when you are done.

We stopped for a break at Mont Royal and had a great snack that Stephanie had picked up at the Atwater Market of local cheeses and fruit as well.

And most important for our teenage kids was that we didn't have to wear the silly looking orange vests one of the other tours groups makes you wear --- we had helmets, just not construction vests.

Montreal was wonderful - the jazz was hot - loads of FREE concerts every day during the Jazz Festival aswell as great performers in the concert halls. Great food - all prices and a bonus - a really fun bike guided bike ride!

“Tastes of Montreal”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

I took the three hour bike tour with a friend through the city. It was a great way to see the sites of Montreal - never knew there were so many bike lanes! Travelling on bike was so much better than by car. Knowledgeable and friendly guide. Very enjoyable experience!
