Explore the city's best on foot with your Private Guide


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. You'll feel both "away" and "not far from home".

We'll discover the must-see buildings, museums, squares, monuments and delve into the history of the largest French-speaking city on the continent and fourth 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 near the cruise ship port.

Choose the time of day: day or evening

A Recent Review of this tour

Taking the tour with Francoise was the ideal way to start our vacation. She personalized our tour to fit our interests. In addition she gave us a lot of materials and suggestions to use on the rest of our stay. She also made herself available for any questions we had about the area. If you too are also a first time visitor to Montreal we highly recommend toursbylocals and especially Francoise.
