What To Expect

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.

From high fashion to back alleys!
Becky_C, Sept 2023
Wow, we went all over Montreal with Darren connecting the dots through history, politics and current events and I’m sure a bit of lore. At the end he gave us tips on restaurant, shopping, and other points of interest. Our first city bike tour and it was great! Highly recommend!

Wonderful tour with a local guide who was very enthusiastic about the city. Well rounded overview from the neighborhoods to parks to historic sights to downtown and the Old City. Solid three hours.

I highly recommend this tour! Andree did a great job sharing history and facts along the way and the city is beautiful! It was not a challenging ride since you stop often to hear about the different parts of the city. I do recommend bringing water!

A fun bike tour with a knowledgeable and affable guide. Would not recommend taking the tour on a hot and humid day like ours but, beyond that, everything was perfect.

Wonderful tour, Martin was a wonderful guide to the city. We rode all over as far south as Atwood and north as Old town. The bikes were well maintained and easy to ride.
Wonderful morning
Matthew_V, June 2023
A very enjoyable experience and wonderful way to get a sense and feel for the city. It made getting around after much easier. Learned many interesting things from our guide. He made the morning even better.
Great tour and tour guide
jvaysberg, June 2023
Had a really enjoyable tour with Jeff. Super knowledgable tour guide (history teacher and Montréal local) with perfect English, lots of stories and anecdotes to share and a very enjoyable and entertaining way of presenting information. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers and we absolutely loved it. It’s one of those tours that makes you really experience the city and it’s neighborhoods and fall in love with the city. Note that some of the riding happens on downtown streets and while the cars seemed very respectful of the bikers, it definitely requires certain proficiency of biking and comfort level with street riding. Overall very satisfied with the tour.
Great way to explore Montreal!
Ann_H, June 2023
Awesome way to explore Montréal! Bikes were new and comfortable. Our guides Martin and his assistant were wonderful. Martin made the history of Montréal come alive with his engaging personality. We had our 4 year old son on a child bike seat and he also enjoyed the tour.

Such a beautiful way to see the city, Our guide Catherine was just great, full of facts along the way. The bicycles were comfortable and safe, the paths and city streets are really easy to drive around on. If your looking for a great way to see the highlights of Montreal take this tour it's great.
Tour of Downtown/Old Montreal
Diana_M, Aug 2019
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...
Ryan P, Aug 2017
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.
