An authentic local urban experience where you see the Montreal of Montrealers! (available May to October)


The real, authentic Montreal is in our neighborhoods! This expansive walking tour is a perfect combination of must-see highlights and lesser-known off the beaten path surprises. It begins in the historic district of Old Montreal, where the city started out as a French colony back in 1642. We will wander along the cobblestone streets and soak up the enchanting charms of the old city. A visit of stunning Notre-Dame Basilica is included. Next, we hop on the Metro and pop up to the Plateau Mont-Royal + Mile End neighborhoods - known as the most artistic, cultural, trendy and popular areas of Montreal. As we zigzag around, you will discover our diversity and multicultural side, our beautiful Victorian architecture, our typical outdoor staircases, our colorful murals and street art, see several Montreal institutions, enjoy some snacks and even practice your French. Tour ends near a peaceful park - the perfect place to rest your feet after so many unforgettable discoveries. (Walking distance=7km/4mi)

Very personable and well organised guide. She had tickets for the attraction and metro and made the day simple for us. We enjoyed our tour of Montreal and the local taste sensations very much. We would thoroughly recommend Lesley T for anyone requiring a tour of Montreal!
