Prepare to be taken on a whirlwind tour of the beautiful city of Montreal when you sign up for the Ultimate Montreal Tour. Great for the casual traveler who is passing through the city or those who are short on time, this 5-hour guided tour will take you to all the best sights and attractions in Montreal including Mont Royal, Notre Dame Basilica, and the Olympic Stadium.
After pickup from your hotel, your tour will begin with a drive through a few local neighbourhoods on your way to Mount Royal (Mont Royal in French). This mountain is said to be where the city of Montreal derives its name from. Along the way, you’ll pass by the famous St. Joseph’s Oratory, Canada’s largest church. At Mount Royal, you will take in beautiful views of the city skyline and nature and snap some pictures while you’re there.

Following a view of the beautiful downtown Montreal, head out through some more of the city as you work your way towards the world-famous Olympic Park which was the main stop for the 1976 Olympics. You will have time to explore the area and take a trip to the Biodome where you will walk through four ecosystems found in the Americas.

From here, you will head to Notre-Dame Basilica. This magnificent Gothic Revival style church features incredible architecture and impressive stained glass window displays adorn the interior.

From Thursday - Sunday (seasonal) your final stop on the tour is the Old Port of Montreal where you will board a St. Lawrence River Cruise. For 90 minutes, you’ll enjoy a relaxing ride on the river, taking in incredible views of the city and learning about the area’s fascinating history.

If you join us Monday - Wednesday, you will instead, head to The Grand Roue, otherwise known as, the largest observation wheel in Canada. Enjoy panoramic views of the Montreal and its beautiful waterfront 60 meters off of the ground. 

At the end of your tour, your guide will bring you back to your hotel where you can scan through the photos and enjoy the memories of your day.
