My name is Françoys, I am a Montreal native and I have been working as a guide for 12 years and in tourism for 30 years. I would like to show you my city and anecdotes about history. Let's walk together!
I invite you to travel back in time in old Montreal! I like to mix stories from Canada that stand out in old Montreal. This allows them to better understand my country and my city and its peculiarities.
I also provide them with a map of the city with a list of suggestions for places to see and do after the tour.
The Free Tour lasts between 2 hours and 2 and a half hours and its meeting point is the Nelson column in Place Jacques Cartier.
Along the tour we will see the Chateau Ramezay , the first church of Montreal: Notre-Dame de Bonsecours , then the Bonsecours market , the St-Paul street, the first commercial street, the Notre-Dame Basilica and the parade ground with its buildings counting 4 centuries of history.
Next we will go on the subway to show you how to use the underground corridors from the convention center. We will continue to the World Trade Center. Then it will be McGill Street and anecdote about the filming that is done in Montreal.
We will end the tour at the Royal Square and the Pointe-a-Callieres archeology museum.
I wait for you!
I'll be at the base of Nelson's column on the same side that Nelson is looking at! I carry a long pole with a blue flag
Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
