Old Lighthouse - Port Vieux Montreal
Nov. 2021 • Business
Like really- how could you rate this less than a five?? The food! The history!! The people!!

Many have commented on the more common things so here is a special gem. At the far end of the old port, closest to Marche Bonsecours, there is a lighthouse out past the man made beach. You can climb up inside (there are something like 192 steps, each is marked/counted) for an amazing view!!

Well preserved magnificent buildings
Oct. 2021
Our guide led us to a walking tour of city buildings and monuments after we had a city bus tour starting from our hotel near Dorchester square. Some parts of the main roads were clised to the traffic due to a firefighters funeral procession.

It has wonderful galleries but stay away from Galerie Blanche.
The restaurants along the cobblestone streets are romantic.

A trip to Old Montreal means you don't have to spend money flying to Europe! Get lost down cobblestone streets (wear good shoes, and be careful - I broke my ankle!). Great restaurants, cafes, sights. Romantic. Great photo opportunities.

Can not skip this place
Aug. 2021
If you come to Montreal, you never can miss visiting old Montreal. I like to walk on a cobblestone road in Old Montreal. You can feel you come back to the 19th century in Europe. there are some restaurants, you can have your lunch or dinner there. To spend a good afternoon is a nice thing to do in old Montreal.

Did a guided walking tour of Old Quebec this morning; our guide was Sandrine Dubois, dressed in colonial attire. In a very engaging manner she gave 20 of us a very informative history of North America. Learned a lot...

Must visit

If in Montreal, you must come to Old Montreal. It feels like an European city with great architecture. Tons of shops and places to eat. Wear good walking shoes.

Racist and rude towards English speaking
Oct. 2021 • Couples
The city is OK and the food is good, which is why I’m giving it 2 stars rather than 1 star. HOWEVER, the people are RUDE and RACIST if you speak English or any other language other than French.
