When booking, choose between the east-side (mid-morning departure) or west-side (early afternoon departure) tour. Alternatively, you can book both, which gives you a break for an independent lunch. Meet at the Notre-Dame Basilica, where your guide will give you an orientation before you enter the basilica itself (admission ticket included). Learn about Quebec’s rich religious heritage, and admire the building’s impressive stained-glass windows.

From there, set out on foot through the streets of Old Montreal, leaving navigation to your guide. Listen to commentary on the city’s history, architecture, art, and culture as you visit highlights such as Sulpician Seminary, the Champ de Mars, City Hall, St.-Jacques Street, Place Jacques-Cartier, and  Place Royale.

End up at the domed public market, Bonsecours Market, which is more than 100 years old. From there, you can explore further on your own with your guide’s suggestions.

Not very good tour

Diane at Guideatour was just ok—pretty dry tour, always put off questions to be covered later (but sometimes weren’t covered later), rarely identified places worth seeing later, no visuals.

Great way to see the city

I did both the East and West walking tours on the same day. It is doable but if it is a hot day it can be a little too much. It allows you an hour for lunch in between. The East side is the French...More

The morning starts at 11, runs until 12:30 and the afternoon stats at 1-2:30. When you sign up on the website it can confirm...I believe the timing might be a little different if you want the French tour.
