Immerse yourself in the dynamic atmosphere of Old Montreal West and discover its major landmarks with your guide!

During this guided tour, you will stroll through the streets of Old Montreal West and discover the little-known gems of this neighbourhood. This unusual tour will take you back to the 19th century, a time of economic boom in Montreal. Your tour will begin near Place d'Armes, from which you will see some iconic buildings and soak up the lively atmosphere of Quebec's main city!

You can also marvel at Notre Dame Basilica, one of the best-known churches in North America, but also the largest neo-Gothic church in the world! You will then head for Rue Saint-Jacques and its luxury banks. Your guide will tell you the history of this main artery of the city of Montreal, once called the "Wall Street" of Canada.

You will have the opportunity to visit two of the main squares in the historic district: the Place d'Youville, on which Montreal was born, and the Place Royale, where the city's first market was located. Your tour will end near the Pointe-à-Callière Museum, a major site in Montréal history and archaeology.
