Montreal Intercultural City Tour
Mourir was an amazing ambassador for Montreal. He is passionate and has lots of interesting facts to share. We did this tour on a first day here. Would absolutely recommend doing this tour first to get a good idea of where to go next/later. So appreciated him kindly squeezing us into the tour. Thank you Mounir.

Montreal Intercultural City Tour
We did both the morning and afternoon city tour. Was an excellent overview of the city. The tour was informative. The driving/walking sections and breaks were nicely spaced. The car was comfortable and water was offered. Had an enjoyable day.

Montreal Intercultural City Tour
I was in Montreal for work and only had 1 day of the weekend to explore the city. With the freezing temperature, walking around and exploring stuff on my own wasn't an option. This tour is a perfect solution for such so situation. The pick up and drop was smooth, the guide touched all the key attraction in the first 3 hours with detailed history of each. We were given sometime time to walk around and take pictures as well. I took a full day tour and enjoyed the next half more. He took us to diverse neighborhoods, famous bagel stores, huge farmers market and The Plateau where we walked around for a while. Perfect experience of complete Montreal in a nutshell.
