Meet your tour guide and group in central Montreal at the tourist information center a little before 1:30 p.m. Your tour starts at 1:30 p.m., and goes through downtown Montreal.

Afterward, go underground to RESO, also known as The Underground City, which was formed in 1962. About 500,000 people circulate the underground city every day, and it has plenty of hotels, restaurants, bars, and shops to be explored.

Itinerary
Pass By:  
Gray Line
Meet your guide inside the Tourist Information Center for your afternoon tour of Montreal’s RESO, the world’s longest underground tunnel network, a multilevel maze of 21 miles (33 km) of walkways, passages and shopping malls.  Start off with an above-ground stroll, hitting some of the major sites in Montreal: the bustling Rue Sainte-Catherine, which runs parallel to the largest segment of the underground city; the neo-Gothic Christ Church Cathedral; Les Cours Mont-Royal, an elegant above-ground shopping mall; and Dorchester Square, the leafy late 19th-century plaza.  And then it’s time to descend into RESO. The Underground City began in 1962 under Place Ville-Marie and has been developing extensions ever since. The 1.5-hour tour covers a carefully selected portion of RESO (from réseau, French for ‘network’) to show you the highlights of this vast underworld. Learn the history of this engineering marvel from your expert local guide and walk the multi-level passageways learning about the best restaurants, bars and shops beneath Montreal.

The tour started late because of the guide (15' late while tour is supposed to be like an hour long or so). The guide didn't really answer to questions and take care of some american tourists of the group in a self-serving way ? Must see because the underground network is famous but the tour is really not ! Disappointing.
