What you'll do

Despite the city’s size, Montreal’s top attractions can be found in relatively compact neighborhoods in the heart of the city. Walk the elegant Rue Sherbrooke, one of the city’s most prestigious streets in Centre Ville, and get acquainted with all of the best museums in the city. The original foundations of the French-inspired city can be found in Vieux-Montreal and a stroll along Rue St. Denis may just leave you thinking you’re in Paris. Find some of the best old-school bagel shops in Mile End or visit a nearly-100-year old farmers market at Marché Jean-Talon, where your insider guide is sure to recommend the best places to grab a bite. From there, why not end the day with an ice-cold beer at one of Montreal’s many craft breweries.

What you’ll do

Fastrack your introduction to magnificent Montreal and follow your local guide off the tourist trail to discover the places you won’t find in your guidebook. Walk cobblestone streets to learn the history of this French-infused city and sample unique Quebecois food loved by the locals. The food scene is a mix of quaint patisseries, English pubs, decades-old Jewish delis, and open-air food markets to rival those in Paris. Don’t miss the chance to walk the elegant thoroughfare of Rue Sherbrooke or visit the waterfront along the Vieux-Port (Old Port). Quiz your local insider on any questions you might have about the city and get the best recommendations for the rest of your stay.
