We loved everything about this tour - the bright pink bikes, the awesome tour guide, Daniel, and the, “off the beaten track” route. We took in so much more than we would’ve done of this city without it and Daniel knew his stuff and really bought Montreal alive for us.

Hi! Thank you so much for your review. I tend to agree, the bright pink bikes are a winner already but it doesn't hurt that Daniel never ceases to disappoint with his charm and knowledge of the city. We really try to have you experience the beauties of Montreal from a local's point of view. So happy to hear you enjoyed and got to see the liveliness of the city we cherish so much. Cheers
Fun, funny, educational!

Marie showed great pride in her birth city. Danny, the owner, stopped traffic and fixed two minor things on bikes on the fly. The bikes were in better repair than my racing bike at home! We did this tour the first day in Montreal to get our “local’s feel” so we could add things to our itinerary. We saw the popular mural area, and the “street cred murals” which we never would have seen without the tour. Hope to go to sunday’s Tam-Tam party, grâce á the tour. Bikes are Light weight, comfy, and shifted very responsively. Everyone’s English was great, and they spoke French and Spanish when needed. The leaders handed out a recommendation paper at the end, and hand wrote in special requests: best bagels, music, etc. I don’t think I would have been comfortable with my kids on the tour- Too much traffic. I’d say ages 15 and up. Book this tour, you won’t regret it.
