It’s like a Montréal 101, for those who are willing to leave the Old Town. Our walking tour from historic Old Montréal up to the funky borough of the Plateau Mont-Royal. Learn about our city’s foundation, see architectural gems, your guide’s favourite institutions along the entertainment district, see street art and pop in for a snack and drink along the way.
If there’s one district that is beautiful year-round, it’s the Old Town. Start your walk with entry to the most ornately decorated Basilica before wandering the elegant streets of Vieux-Montréal. We’ll be popping into some historic and architecturally impressive gems.
We stroll through a segment of our interior or “underground” city, the largest indoor network on the planet to make our way to Chinatown for a quick snack. Then it’s off to our Red Light District, turned entertainment mecca, for a quick visit of an often missed district institution.
Up Saint-Laurent boulevard we head into a street art gallery before hitting the streets to see about a dozen of the impressive works of art from Montréal’s MURAL
Festival in the borough that is home to the highest concentration of artists in Canada.
We end the day with a cup of locally roasted joe at an independent made-in-Montréal café where we’ll warm up or cool off before handing you a list of recommendations for the remainder of your stay.
