La Grand Roue de Montreal
Tia_Y, May 2023
This beautiful tourist attraction is a must while in Montreal. You get to see breathtaking views of Old Montreal (hopefully you aren't afraid of heights) La Grande is for everyone, Family, Couples, Friends and Solo rides you can decide.
Normally, you go around 3-4 times. In front of La Grande you have the J'MTL which a lot of people line up to take pictures with. I absolutely recommend this fun sweet ride.

Great views of the city and river! Cabin was very comfortable and the amount allotted was perfect. Good facilities as well.

The view of Montreal was beautiful! You could see the whole City. We planned our next stop just from looking down from the top view!
Worth the effort

The weather cooperated so the views were awesome.
Side note when booking your tickets you will see one time 10am.
The ride starts at that time but you can show up at any point during their opening hours. That was unclear on viator.

Staff are friendly, waiting time was not too bad, you get 4 rounds of spin. Good experience! We will come back for sure

The attraction itself was fun. Got to see lots of Montreal from the top.
Don’t bother purchasing tickets through Viator because you’ll still have to wait in line to get your tickets printed. Didn’t save us any time by buying tickets ahead of time. And only 1 person working at the ticket booth so wait time was long.
Long wait but worth it

Worth the 45 min wait in line ! The view was extraordinary and we did 3 rounds! The wait was long especially for kids
Viator tickets doesn't...

Viator tickets doesn't work..you still have to stand in line to validate them. It should be quick and efficient.
Eduardo_C, July 2022
Good birds eye view of the city, but nothing more. Would not do it again, here or elsewhere. 20 to 30 minutes duration.
Faboulous! A must
Joyce_S, July 2022
Beatiful, confortable cabin, just the right rotation speed.
And, naturally, the most amazing views of Montreal!

Beautiful views, easy to get to the location
Friendly person at the location
The tourist area is full of good places to eat ( bit costly)
Cool to ride at night.

The bridge was beautiful at night. The ride was really smooth. There’s a restaurant to eat at after the ride.
Pirinthini_S, Apr 2022
Absolutely beautiful. I love it .It’s a landmark in Montreal so it’s a must see if you are visiting. The street level view is fabulous. It does make it to 5 stars. it is a bit expensive. you can see the whole city. great place to explore on foot.
A Montreal must
Alyson_F, Apr 2022
A great way to view Montreal!! You can see everything and I highly recommend going at night. 20 minutes in length and make sure to preorder your tickets.
Bird's eye view.
