Montreal Underground City

800 Rue de la Gauchetière O, Montreal, Quebec

The Basics

With some 20 miles (33 kilometers) of tunnels, 190 access points, and thousands of shops, the Underground City can be something of a maze, especially to the uninitiated. To avoid getting lost, consider joining a guided tour. Tours of the complex show off highlights of the underground realm, which features everything from shopping malls to public artworks and even a segment of the Berlin Wall.

Some tours split their time between the Underground City and the ground-level attractions of Downtown Montreal, stopping at landmarks such as Christ Church Cathedral and the monument-dotted Dorchester Square.

Very worthwhile tour.
This tour is our second tour (3 hours tour) after small-group sightseeing tour. After this two tours, it gave us hindsight of Montreal. As a small group tour, Mounir was able to give a sort of personalized tour. His knowledge on the history & culture of Montreal is terrific.

Mourir was an amazing ambassador for Montreal. He is passionate and has lots of interesting facts to share. We did this tour on a first day here. Would absolutely recommend doing this tour first to get a good idea of where to go next/later. So appreciated him kindly squeezing us into the tour. Thank you Mounir.

We did both the morning and afternoon city tour. Was an excellent overview of the city. The tour was informative. The driving/walking sections and breaks were nicely spaced. The car was comfortable and water was offered. Had an enjoyable day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Mounir. We are both familiar with Montreal but we saw and learned things we never knew. Mounir is a great tour guide, knowledgeable and personable. Thanks for a great day!

Montreal Intercultural City Tour
I was in Montreal for work and only had 1 day of the weekend to explore the city. With the freezing temperature, walking around and exploring stuff on my own wasn't an option. This tour is a perfect solution for such so situation. The pick up and drop was smooth, the guide touched all the key attraction in the first 3 hours with detailed history of each. We were given sometime time to walk around and take pictures as well. I took a full day tour and enjoyed the next half more. He took us to diverse neighborhoods, famous bagel stores, huge farmers market and The Plateau where we walked around for a while. Perfect experience of complete Montreal in a nutshell.
