3hr Walking Tour from Mt-Royal Look-out, through Downtown & Underground, to Old-Montreal


The origins of the city, its development in the industrial era, its modern urbanization, the height of the skyscrapers, the location of McGill University (and more!) can be explained by the presence of the river and the mountain. These two natural elements are both the backbone and the lungs of the city.

Start the tour on top of Mont-Royal (the best view of the city!), listen to the babbling students on one of the oldest campuses in North America, look up at the skyscrapers of the city centre, explore the underground and walk the cobblestones of Old Montreal to learn about the first settlers.

A Recent Review of this tour

The tour was excelent! We started from the top of Mount Royal and walked down to the city, Marie explained us the stroy of the city and geography. She took us thru the university and down to the underground tunnels that conect several buildings and all the way down to the catedral. She then recomended us places to go and eat in the afternoon and following day. Excelent way of dicovering Montreal.
