      Meet a Local in Montreal - Private Tour

      Montreal, Quebec, Canada
      From (USD) $301 Per Guide (Maximum 6 Guests)
      • More than a guide: Even by GoBe standards, your tour leader is special. These “docents” (from the Latin for “teacher”) are Ph.D. and M.A. scholars who have spent years studying the city and its historical sites.
      • Hotel pick-up: Your docent will meet you at any hotel, apartment, or café in the neighborhood you want to explore, providing a convenient, customizable starting point for this in-depth experience.
      • Small group: With no more than 6 people per tour, you’ll get a personal touch that’s often missing from large group experiences.
      • Explore the city your way: From the luxurious 19th century mansions of the Golden Square Mile to the spacious plazas and museums of Quartier Des Spectacles, just tell your docent what you want to see and they’ll make it happen.
      About This Montreal Tour

      Montreal is a city of creative contrasts. 

      Though it’s the capital of Canada’s largest province by area, its France-inspired flair is unmistakable – outside of Paris, Montreal is the world’s largest primarily French-speaking city. It’s not unfair to say that the entire French Canadian ethnic identity was born here along the shores of the St. Lawrence.
      But this city refuses to be boxed into one culture, identity, or feeling. It’s famous for world-renowned gatherings like the Grand Prix and International Jazz Festival, but Montreal has plenty of open spaces in areas like the Botanical Gardens and Fontaine Park. The Vieux-Port district features centuries-old churches and municipal buildings, blocks away from the glittering skyscrapers and contemporary hotels of downtown.
      Which side of Montreal do you prefer? On this tour, the choice is yours. Your docent provides a thoughtful, in-depth visit to whichever area you want to explore. In a city so diverse and multifaceted, you might find that your biggest challenge is limiting yourself to just one part – but if you enjoy gaining a deeper understanding of a city’s culture and history, it’s a good problem to have.
