10 Bus Tours in Montreal That You Shouldn't Miss

June 21, 2021 Harland Bartelt

Montreal, c’est si bon! This French-speaking city is considered the cultural capital of Canada, and is a cosmopolitan celebration of Québécois style. A horse-drawn carriage ride around the cobblestone streets and grand buildings of Vieux-Montréal will give you a taste of European flavor. The Basilique Notre-Dame is a confection of stained glass, and the Plateau Mont-Royal district will delight you with its quaint boutiques and cafés. Dig in to a massive plate of poutine to fuel up for a tour of the epic Olympic Park.

This February, I went a trip to Quebec one day tour with Wonder Travel. It was an amazing experience for me. I went there alone, but I didn’t feel boring. On the bus, I talked with the guide Paulin, she was very kind and gave me a lot of recommendations to where I should go. She suggested me to have a nice cup of coffee in the famous coffee shop in Old Quebec City, and the coffee was really nice. Besides, I was really satisfied with the iterary Wonder Travel organized. All the destinations we went to were worthwhile and fantastic, especially the Monmorency fall which is really magnificent and unforgettable. On our way back, we were tired and I got a little cold, Paulin she gave me her coat. She is really kind. If I have a chance to go on a travel next time, I hope to go with Wonder Travel!

I did the full day tour and really enjoyed the whole experience. I wanted to get a good overview of the Montreal area, and zero in on the different places and history that make this city unique. I was very happy with the knowledge of my tour guides, as they have a wealth of knowledge about the city and it’s history. Also, this during the whole covid-19 thing in Montreal, and that did not keep me from enjoying the tour and my trip. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing what Montreal has to offer!

This tasting exceeded my expectations. Not only was it well organized but the facilitator was very knowledgeable. My husband and I have a greater appreciation for both tea and chocolate. It was also a great introduction to some amazing local companies. I look forward to the next event.
