This must-do ride of Montreal's centre is the best introduction to our incredibly bike-friendly city! It's a an excellent mix of must-see sights and hidden gems. Learn about 'The Story of Montreal' and why it is Canada's capital of culture, creativity, food, and fun. You will ride through Old Montreal (with a stop in front of the Notre-Dame Basilica), the Old Port & Riverside, Downtown, and the charming Plateau neighbourhood. This 3 hour tour includes breaks every so often for city info, photos, and time to connect with your super-friendly guide! Take this tour as your first activity in Montreal as you will discover many neighbourhoods, parks, cafes, and restaurants & bars you will want to return to! We can see so much on a bike in a short time! For those looking for a little more local neighbourhood experience about the lifestyle & vibe of Montreal, check out our other Airbnb Experience called Montreal's Hoods & Hidden Gems Bike Tour! On that tour you will see the Plateau, Mile-End, Little Italy, stop for a famous Montreal Bagel (hot from the oven) and explore the huge Jean-Talon Farmer's Market! Do both rides to really see it all! Both The Essential and the Hoods & Hidden Gems leave at 10am and 2pm everyday.
Shea And Diego
We both founded bike tour companies out of laneway garages 10 years ago, on different continents - Diego launched BA Bikes in Buenos Aires, and Shea launched Fitz & Follwell in Montreal. We've combined our passion and knowledge to offer top-notch bike & walking experiences here in Montreal - the kind we look for when we go traveling ourselves. We'll show you the best art, architecture, urban development, nature, and local events & festivals, but we also aren't afraid to show you the grit, imperfections, and realities of what living in Montreal is like! You will be hosted by a member of the Fitz team, all passionate locals that love to show travellers around their city.
We'll offer you our Fitz MTL map, full of 99+ picks of our staff favourite places to eat, drink, catch live music, or hangout
