No visit to Montreal is complete without a walk through its Old City, arguably North-America's most charming and well-preserved historical neighborhood.  This 2.5-hour small-group tour is casual yet informative, with no two tours being the same. Our guides adapt the tour to the interests of their group and choose their favourite off-the-beaten-path stops. This walk is the perfect experience to begin your Montreal visit, both in summer and in winter.

This tour was carefully crafted to be fully enjoyable both in summer and in winter, with some extra indoor stops planned for the cold days. If you are booking for January, just don’t forget your gloves and those extra layers you’ll be alright!

Our guide Thom did an excellent job bringing the “Old City” alive by weaving its impressive history together with historic buildings, architecture, sculptures and monuments. Thom was very knowledgeable and it was a great pleasure to spend the morning with him

Martin was a wonderful guide. He was very accommodating to each member of the group. He answered any questions and was very knowledgeable of Montreal. He even emailed us more things to do and see beyond our tour.
History lesson with Tom, while casually walking around Old Montreal.

Tom was an excellent guide. He brought so much passion and knowledge to our walk. You can really tell he's into history and it was that sharing of knowledge that made this tour great for my friend and me. I really learned things I never knew and was able to share Tom's knowledge with my wife that night, as she was busy during the day at a conference. I would highly recommend this walk if you're interested in learning the history of Montreal and of Quebec itself.
