Norman was an amazing driver and guide. He knows Montreal well, and filled the time with countless stories. He manoeuvred the bus through narrow passageways and crowded streets effortlessly, and knew all the paths to get around a very busy city during rush hour. The bus was comfortable, although prevented anyone from seeing the sights on the other side. We used all we learned to focus the rest of our visit to this amazing city. Overall a great tour!

We are so happy we did this bus tour of Montreal! Our tour guide (Richard) gave a fun and informative overview of the city. We only had one full day to spend in Montreal and there was no way we could have covered so much ground or experienced so much of the city on our own (especially given the heat and rain). Thank you so much for a great experience!

We enjoyed a quick introduction to Montreal city by our guide, Norman, who is knowledgeable about Montreal, has a quick humour and was easy to have a connection with. We are from Arizona, US and it’s the first time we travel to Canada. With this tour at the beginning of our trips, we were able to have a good idea where to go afterwards by using the subway system (Metro) and city bus. It was fun and memorable! We highly recommend it.
