Urban Marmotte offers you great walking tours. Lasting from 3 to 6 hours, we like taking the time needed to really show you around. Our tours are flexible and capture the backpacker's spirit: no rush, easy going, very informative and enjoyable. Our tours are a good mix of main attractions and places that are off the beaten tracks. Try the Grand Tour, our famous 6 hour walking tour, showing up to eight different areas and ambiances - the perfect tour to have before exploring the city by yourself. Or take another tour like "Old Montreal in Depth", a 3 hours tour that takes the time this historical area deserves or instead visit the Old Montreal at its best with the Old Montreal by Night Tour. See our website for a complete list of tours, schedules and rates. We also offer private tours.

I loved this tour. It was interactive and very informative. I live in Montreal and learned a lot. Michel was very good at explaining in both languages and was conscious of the needs of all members of the group. Highly recommended!

Great way to see Montreal. We did 5 hour tour in a blizzard (1 foot of snow). Frederic our guide was excellent and used underground Montreal to take breaks from the snow. A great day! Wear boots!

Thank you for the good words. Yes, two is enough. (of course we prefer to have ten of you on a tour ;-)) Sometimes it happens and we're happy to show you around still. After all the mileage you've travelled!

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
