What people are saying about Montreal

My daughter and I took this bike tour with David and we are so glad we did. David was the best. He was very accommodating, encouraging and had lots of helpful tips (for those that were struggling…me) and a super positive attitude that was contagious. The day we rode, Montréal had just gotten about 8” of snow and it was deep fresh snow, so the park was challenging (for me) but so beautiful and magical and the whole ride was exhilarating! It was very cold so make sure you dress like you are going for a day of skiing, good gloves and even goggles. Even with good gloves my fingers got cold but David saved the day and had extra gloves in his backpack. I would definitely do this again and highly recommend this to everyone!

Phenomenal care from the instructor to ensure the best trip possible. Allowed extra time to explore the city. Gave detailed overview of city history.

Amazing trip. Well organized. Our guide was very informative and old montreal is beautiful with a rich history

Amazing guide and driver. Took their time to explain all important places. Would recommend the tour for all.

David was a great guide and we had an awesome adventure !
