Old Montreal Walking Tour Enchanting Stroll in the late afternoon, evenings
The tour is ideal just before or at dusk or when it gets dark.
A late afternoon arrival into Montreal? Are you boarding a cruiseship the next day? Forget to book a tour and really want to get to know Montreal. Do you want an introduction into Montreal before you go off to explore on your own? This walking tour is for you .
The evening lights and light up building showcase the architecture Old Montreal. Enjoy a leisurely stroll with me while I help you discover hidden secrets hidden locations that few have access to. Along our stroll I will share anecdotes, stories. Once it gets dark, Old Montreal will come alive with the projections like mini movies on the historical building. We can finish at a local bar, Speakeasy or restaurant and I will share some of my favourites local places. Please let me know if I can make suggestion for you to further explore.
