Tour description

Montreal stretches over a 50km long island and the old city is located on the shores of San Lorenzo. In just 375 years it was founded by French missionaries in 1642, 3 centuries of history that made Montreal the first major commercial center in Canada.

In this free walking tour we will visit:

  • Plaza de Armas: Monument to the founders.
  • Notre-Dame Basilica: masterpiece, considered one of the splendid churches in North America
  • Bank of Montreal
  • Seminary
  • St-Jacques Street: In this "Wall Street" of Canada where the statement "Montreal was the metropolis of Canada" takes on all its meaning. Bold architecture, banks and insurance companies, very beautiful facades etc.
  • Plaza Victoria: Park, subway, underground city, ICAO and World Trade Center.
  • Porto Vecchio: In its glory days and for centuries it was one of the most important inland ports in North America.
  • Set of historic and romantic streets that descend to the San Lorenzo river.

Como solo estábamos los cuatro de la familia en el tour, la experiencia fue más enriquecedora, ya que la información era más personalizada, podíamos hacerle más preguntas y el trato era más directo
