Trip Info

The tour is ideal just before or at dusk or when it gets dark.

A late afternoon arrival into Montreal? All-day in meetings and you want to do something different and fun. Are you boarding a cruise ship the next day? Forget to book a tour and really want to get to know Montreal. Do you want an introduction into Montreal before you go off to explore on your own? This is the perfect tour for you! A walking tour of Old Montreal, our historical neighborhood with a brief introduction to Montreal is a great way to get a feel for Montreal.

The evening lights showcase the architecture of Montreal. Take a leisurely stroll while I give you commentary, anecdotes and telling you about some of Old Montreal’s well-kept treasures and hidden gems. Once it gets dark, Old Montreal will come alive with the projections filled with stories. The tour has many stops to sit. We can finish at a local bar or restaurant. If you need assistance for the rest of your stay please let me know.┬áThis is a private customized, made to measure tour.
