Amazing guide Danny who made the tour interesting, funny, and very personal. Great way to cover more of the city than we ever would have seen. The cafe at the start next to the bike shop was great and lunch delivered to the park was excellent. Thank you team!

Felix gave a great tour of the Montrea! The bikes were in top-notch condition and lunch was delicious. Overall, a terrific way to see various neighborhoods and get a little history of the city.
Fantastic way to see the city

I did this tour on Oct 15 2022 and I forget my guides name but he was fantastic! This tour was so personal to the guide which really makes you connect with the city. It was a medium sized group and the pace and communication was great. The lunch and beer was super delicious. We learned long and short history and some local tips. I would definitely recommend this to anyone capable!
Passionate & Friendly Tour on Hot Pink Bikes!
Katie_S, Oct 2022
This tour was so wonderful. Danny, our guide, made an effort to get to know everyone on the tour. His passion and knowledge of Montréal was contagious and it was so fun to hear his stories and experience growing up in the city. Thanks for giving us a unique and off the beaten path tour. The bikes were so fun and beautiful. Our lunch was light and delicious. Thanks so much! I’ll be checking out more Spade and Palacio Tours next time I visit.
Our favorite tour
Christine_N, Oct 2022
What a perfect way to spend a sunny fall day in Montreal! Danny was a great guide, he clearly loves the city & knows it well! We really enjoyed the “off the beaten path” quality of the tour. Wish every day could be spent exploring by bike, appreciating the public art and lunching in the park! Thanks!!
A Great Time on Wheels

Marie gave us a fantastic bicycle tour of the Plateau, harbor and a glimpse of Old City. We viewed the Mounrain and had lunch in a lovely park. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We learned so much from her and got lots of exercise too! We recommend Marie for this tour. She is awesome!

Coleen_P, Sept 2022
We loved Amelie!!! We learned so much. The lunch was excellent! I am gluten free and my friend is vegan. The lunch accommodated both of us! It was exciting to see parts of Montreal that others do not see! Can't recommend this trip enough. I love bike riding!
A magnificent way to experience Montreal.
John_W, Sept 2022
Would definitely give in excess of 5 stars if it were possible. This is the way to experience Montreal. Our guide Felix is a wealth of knowledge as well as having a wonderful sense of humor. Both he an Danny took care of us exceptionally well. Felix‘ s knowledge gave us an incredible insight to the history, culture and diversity of Montreal. If you do only one thing when visiting Montreal, this is it.
Learned a lot about Montreal and our tour guide (Danny)!
jschnitzer, Aug 2022
Danny is an awesome guide. He has extensive knowledge of Montreal and it’s history-he he’s an excellent sense of humor which added to our enjoyment. The (pink)bikes were in good shape and the ride not very difficult. We stopped in a lovely park where we ate a boxed lunch ( not sure if the quinoa hit the spot…but it was a different taste!) The tour/ride was well paced and Danny’s positive attitude enhanced the fun and made for an enjoyable and fun 4 hours (with about 45 min for lunch). I hope to go on a food tour next time!
Fun+Fitness+New Friends = Best tour in Montreal!
Stacey_M, Aug 2022
Felix was so entertaining and knowledgeable, the ride was fun and very safe. The other guests were great, and we all got to know each other a bit!
Must do tour to learn about Montreal culture!
Carol_A, July 2022
Danny gave us a great tour of a city he knows lime the back of his hand. We loved getting to experience Montreal through his eyes and really enjoyed his storytelling styles. He kept us engaged and laughing all day long! He finished the tour with some of his own personal recommendations which we then used for the rest of our trip.

Response from Host, July 2022
Felix is such a pleasure to follow. Happy you enjoyed the lunch on the bike tour. Always nice to take a little break through the ride!
Just do it!
Jennifer_S, July 2022
My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 older teens) had a great day exploring Montreal by bike! The tour was about 4 hours, which included a lovely lunch break of quinoa salad and a pastry. The ride was casual, primarily along slower streets, with only a couple of hills. The pink bikes were comfortable and worked well. They brought lots of smiles and comments from the people we passed. Our guide, Felix, was excellent! He was very friendly and had lots of info to share about the sights we visited and the city in general. He made sure our group of 10 stayed together and were safe. It was a highlight of our trip to Montreal.
Response from Host, July 2022
Haha! Love the title, you from Portland!? Felix is simply the best and we love our beautiful pink bikes. Merci!
Fun Bike Tour

Such a pleasure to have you on the bike tour with us, we loved the group you were part of. Hope we can host you on another route soon!
Worth every penny
Victoria_H, Aug 2019
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.
Response from Host, Aug 2019
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
