Montreal is the city of festivals, multiculturalism, joie de vivre, fine dining and a hub for research and development in Artificial Intelligence. Lots going for it! Right down to urban planning, it is unique in North America due to the coming together of two cultures.

We'll discover the must-see buildings, museums, squares, monuments and delve into the history of the fourth largest French-speaking city in the world -- all with a personalized approach. No tour would be complete without a list of recommendations: restaurants, bars, activities, festivals and shopping.

**The Old Montreal walking tour makes a great shore excursion choice, since our port is adjacent to the old town. I can pick you up at the cruise ship port.

***If you prefer to drive around, simply ask your concierge to arrange for a car and driver to pick us up at your downtown or old town hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

Francoise took us on a fabulous tour of Montreal. We started on the top of the mountain for an overview with Montreal at our feet. Then we went down into town and saw it all, neighborhood by neighborhood, and ended at the marvelous Basilica! She answered our many questions and we certainly now feel that we know this wonderful city. We have used TBL many times and all the guides have been excellent, but Francoise was the Best of the Best!
