Below office towers, major thoroughfares, parks and sidewalks the ground is honeycombed with almost 30 km of pedestrian walkways, connecting the city’s universities, hotels, shops and buildings. You will travel on Montréal’s ‘metro’ or subway system to visit different points of interest such as the Place Ville-Marie, Complexe Desjardins, Place des Arts and Place de la Cathédrale.

On this tour you will join in a hearty French Canadian feast at La Sucrerie de la Montagne, a maple sugar farm situated atop Mont-Rigaud amidst 40 acres of spectacular wooded trails, just 55 minutes from Montréal. At this rustic site you will see authentic log cabins, immense woodburning ovens in which fresh bread is baked, and the sugar shack where real maple syrup is made.
