Explore the most picturesque historical area of the city!
Explore a must-see district for any first visit to Montreal! I share my personal favorites in this historic district full of charm. While observing beautiful buildings, I will show you some amazing details and tell you stories that you would have never known had you walked by yourself. Travel back in time and learn more about the founding of the city, some great characters in Montreal's history, and the French-English rivalry.
Main public squares (including place d'Armes, place Royale and place Jacques-Cartier) and beautiful historical buildings from the outside (Old seminary des Sulpiciens, Chateau Ramezay, Basilique Notre-Dame, the City Hall, Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours chapel, Bonsecours Market), wandering among famous cobblestones' streets of Old-Montreal and Old-Port.
*The exact order is determined on the day of the tour. Available all year round. In winter, I had more indoor stops :D.
