Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to a meeting point near Parc Jeanne-Mance, where you’ll join a local guide and get fitted with a bicycle. Hop on your bike and pedal towards Mont Royal Park, the gateway to the gentle mountain in the city center, then continue to the McGill University Campus.

From there, you’ll ride the longest protected bike path in Montreal and explore the narrow streets of Old Montreal, where cobblestones and historic architecture give the neighborhood an atmospheric, European feel. Here and throughout the tour, the guide will stop to share a bit of history and fun Montreal facts, with time to ask questions about the things you see along the way.

Continue to the edge of the St. Lawrence River and the Old Port, a favorite destination for local walkers and cyclists, then loop back to the starting point in the Plateau/Mont Royal neighborhood. Your tour concludes at the starting point with a light refreshment.

Tour of Downtown/Old Montreal

We had an excellent time! Our tour guides were wonderful, thoughtful, knowledgeable, . . . I hate it that I can't remember their times. The main guide was female, dark hair, 5 months pregnant (there's a giveaway!) and quite a hoot!! She was always in front and the guy kept us corralled in the back. My friend had her chain come off, but being a biker, she put it on herself. And he kindly told her he would have done it so at least she wouldn't have to get her fingers dirty! He said he would double check the bike when we got back. Highly recommend this tour!

Really nice tour, I'd highly...

Really nice tour, I'd highly recommend taking it, especially if you're only in the city for a day or two and want to get around to the major downtown spots. My only suggestion is I wish we did more riding and got to another neighborhood or two rather than taking a 15 min break at a cafe.
