Go to Montreal on a Private Tour Where You Are Sure to Have a Ball

When you go to Montreal on a private tour, you are sure to have a ball with all the exciting and fascinating places to see and activities to do.

Montreal is a city of both history and pride.

In Canada’s Québec province, Montreal is the largest city set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River. As a piece of trivial information, Montreal got its name from Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart.

This city is predominately French with almost 60% of the population speaking the French language thanks to French colonists making this area they're home in the 14th century.

Therefore there is a very European influence throughout the city.

With countless of museums, galleries, a large Botanic garden, historic buildings and landmarks there is an abundance of sightseeing tours available.

There are many different boroughs and each one offers an insight into different past lives such as the cobblestoned French colonial Vieux-Montreal with its Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica or the Bohemian Plateau.

Let the activities begin!
