This recommended outfit offers a range of walking and cycling tours around Montréal. Tours have very much a local flavor, as young, knowledgeable guides take you on day and evening rides, stopping for a park picnic, visiting microbreweries, or exploring the leafy paths of Mont-Royal.

There are also walking tours that explore the history, culture and food of Blvd St-Laurent; fascinating rambles through Old Montréal; and curious walks through the Underground City.

If you prefer to explore on your own, Fitz & Follwell rents bikes – stylish three- or eight-speed Linus models. If you have small children, you can rent Yuba Mundo bikes that carry up to three kids in back, or Babboe City cargo bikes.
