Our Old Montreal Tour takes a fresh approach. Your small group will provide a more intimate experience with your guide to go up, down, over and under to see less-obvious sights and hidden perspectives of Montreal's charming historic quarter.
The tour begins with a highly creative and energetic 18-minute multimedia show about Montreal & Quebec's rich past and modern history, produced by world-renowned tech wizards Moment Factory. Yours Truly Montreal, plays in an immersive 270 degree screen inside the breathtaking Pointe-a-Callière Museum Theatre.
After the short film we explore how Old Montreal and its St. Lawrence River Port were the most important and wealthy part of Canada for over 300 years, and how it has evolved into the dynamic and thriving (but less industrial) riverfront neighbourhood it is today. We’ll pass centuries-old architectural gems, cobblestoned streets, and catch views of ships at dock. Feel free to poke your head into restaurants, galleries, bars, or shops as we pass by to take note for later pleasures. Your guide will be happy to share their recommendations and favourite spots as you relax over coffee and a delicious treat!
