The holidays may be unfolding a little differently this year, but that’s no reason to stay cooped up in the house! The private outdoor walking tours from Guidatour have newly been authorized to start again – respecting the maximum of 8 participants, not including the guide – and from December 17th, 2020 to January 10th, 2021, they are inviting you to discover the Christmas secrets of Old Montreal. It’s a fun jot of education and a truly unique way to get yourself moving and experiencing the magic of the holidays in the historic neighbourhood.
Fun with Family and Friends*
This outdoors activity is just the thing for you if you want to spend some good time as a family and immerse yourself in the magic of the holidays, thanks to the neighbourhood’s magnificent light decorations. To see Old Montreal all in lights, the Guidatour team advises you plan your visit for the late afternoon or early evening. During this Christmas-themed guided tour, you will learn about the habits and customs of the early Nouvelle-France era and some traditions that we still carry on to this day. “Even if you live in Montreal, there is still much to discover in the company of our guides, and even more to marvel at. You should take advantage of it while you still have the chance!” President of Guidatour, Angèle Vermette mentions.
The route your private professional guide will take you through will go by the Royal Bank building on Saint-Jacques Street all the way to Bonsecours Market; so you will want to dress warmly and wear good walking shoes, as you will have about a 90 minute walk ahead of you. However, you may request the duration and content of the visit be adapted to your situation, like if you have very young children, for example. For more information about this and to reserve your spot, contact Guidatour at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at 514 844-4021.
Please note that the price is $165 per group, taxes included. Gratuity is at your discretion. Reservation is required.
*You may hike this route with friends, but you must wear a mask and respect a 2 metre distance between you if so.
