It was pretty hard to find where the stop was. There was NO signage. It would be nice if there were more stops in larger areas, i.e. Old Montreal/Port area. Just 1 stop at one end of it. Our first ride the guide (female) was fantastic. The 2nd ride the guide (male) made some of his opinions known about the condos being built in Montreal. The guide should really keep their personal opinions to themselves.

The bus was very run down. There was a broken seat on the top deck and the bus’s engine sounded like it was going to break down any minute. The bus lurched and lunged every time we slowed or stopped (which was frequent due to so much construction around Montréal!) There was no headset to choose your language. The guide just did the tour in English and French (and really mostly just English.) His brand of humor was ‘insult’ humor and not funny. All in all, it did NOT measure up to our usual experience with Gray Line tours.

Live commentary is not as good as multi-lingual earpiece commentary. Our commentator was too busy reminding people about giving him a tip when we got off the bus.

They need to change the description of where to meet. The information tells you to meet at Notre Dame Basilica in Vieux Montreal but that is incorrect. The other problem is that none of the stops are labeled anywhere. The real place where you should start this hop on hop off experience is at Dorchester Square. The gray line bus and hop on hop off bus office is there and it is the first stop for the hop on hop off bus. I didn't know this at first, so I spent most of my first day trying to locate the bus and/or where to find it. Finally I found a phone number to call and Caroline was very helpful in directing me to the nearest stop to the basilica which was at the parc Place d'Armes. By the time I finally got onto the bus it was 2 pm and I only had 2 hours left to use the bus for the day. Il est marque d'aller a la basilique de Notre Dame mais cela est incorrect. En plus il n'y a pas de panneaux pour les arrets. Il faut dire d'aller a Dorchester Square pour commencer le tour.

First tour guide was not up to standard. He made a few off color commentaries. The bus was dirty and old (and very hot). The second day the tour guide was much better, she stayed on track and was pleasant. Bus was clean, the driver was really good and there was AC.
