    Perfect intro to Montreal by bike!
    This was a perfect bike ride to introduce us to a number of downtown Montreal neighbourhoods. Anne-Marie was a great guide, friendly, knowledgeable and took care to make sure we were safe on the roads. Really easy ride to discover some cool spots in the city. We really enjoyed the afternoon on the bike with your tour. Thanks so much!

    Charming Montreal bike tour
    Fantastic ride through less touristy parts of Montreal. Our guide, Julie, was lovely. The terrain was mostly neighborhoods with a smaller portion on city streets, but with the dedicated bike lanes it always felt safe. Julie showed us several murals, Mont Royal Park and the bustling Jean Talon market. She also got us delicious, warm bagels from St. Viateur.

    Fun, educational, and a great workout!
    Eduardo was a fantastic guide! Super personable and informative. The bike ride was both fun and educational, plus we got a great workout! Highly recommend this place! The bikes were in great condition and the price was reasonable. My only “complaint” was that they didn’t give us a bottle of water and the booking said it was included. So, we were pretty thirsty mid-trip, so don’t forget to bring water! Otherwise, it was a great way to see the city, especially on a beautiful fall day!

    Great way to orient yourself in Montreal and see where the locals live
    This was such a great way to get to know the neighborhoods surrounding downtown Montreal and get a sense for how locals live. The bagels and stop at the Jean-Talon market were definite highlights. Very knowledgeable and passionate guide who gave us plenty of time for pictures and was able to answer questions. Plus, it's about 9 miles of biking, which means you get a workout in!

    Discovering new neighborhoods and interesting sites on a fun tour!
    Our guide Eduardo was very enthusiastic with an infectious smile, and well informed about the areas we visited. He was also safety conscious and made sure everyone was comfortable riding in the bike lanes and with traffic. My husband and I are happy that we took this tour as we would never have discovered the ‘hidden gems and neighborhoods’ on our own. We highly recommend this tour and this guide!!

    Best way to see the city!
    Julie was a great tour guide! Very fun and energetic! We were all over the city on our bikes and saw places we would not be able to go on foot or car. It got hilly at times, so be ready to work. Overall a Great educational bike tour. Highly recommend it!

    Do it!
    Tom gave us a great tour of Montréal. Shared tons of great information - lots of great anecdotes and some personal stories from living in the area. Would definitely recommend this tour if you’re looking to get a nice sense of the city in a small amount of time.

    Biking around Montreal City
    We loved this bike and tour experience! We learned about the history of the city and saw some fun sites. Our guide took us on a combo of bike path, streets, and some city streets. There were a few hills but they have a great route planned out so we only had one rather steep section at the very end of the 3 hour tour. Our guide Ann Marie was friendly and knowledgeable! I would definitely suggest it as a fun way to get a feel of the city.

    A great fun way to start our stay in Montreal. Martin our guide was engaging & gave a great insight into the history of Montreal, it’s social history & also cultural appreciation of what it is to be Canadian. He also provided great tips for what to see & do during our stay in Montreal. Highly recommended.

Our guide, Jeff, walked us through Old Montreal where we learned history and got an understanding of contemporary culture in the region. The two-hour tour went by quickly. We covered a lot of ground but never felt overwhelmed by the experience. From a secret bar to a decorated alley to historical markers and beautiful viewpoints, this tour helped us get oriented to the city and feel a special appreciation for Montreal.

The tour was great. Our guide Frederick was terrific. He was very informative and shared a lot of interesting information. I especially appreciated that the tour took place even though it was pouring rain most of the time and that Frederick modified the tour so that we could be inside, out of the rain, a little bit. We had a wonderful tour!!

Martin was a wonderful guide for this trip. Not only did we learn about Old Montreal and its history but he personalized the experience for the whole group. He also shared his personal connection to the history which made it more special..I can't recommend him and this tour highly enough.

The tour guide was knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. The walking was at a good pace, not too fast or too slow, with plenty of stops for photos. I learned a lot from the guide and it made my visit to Montreal all that much more enriching.

To be honest, this wasn’t great and we didn’t learn that much about Montreal. The guide was very nice but seemed a bit dis-organised and didn’t always have answers to questions. Most of the time she talked about bagels, why they were better than the ones in the USA, her favourite bagel shop and how many she ate. We were also taken to look in a commercial art gallery which was odd as we could have done that at any time. We also stopped at a cafe/shop for about 15 minutes where most of us just hung around waiting to go on.

I wouldn’t recommend this tour as you learn very little, in fact one person left early and she over ran.
