19th Century Glitz & Glamour

This fascinating tour takes place at the foot of Mount Royal and on its slopes, plunges us into the heart of the 19th century when Montreal was living its Golden Age and was therefore considered the Canadian metropolis. During this period, the wealthiest individuals in the country lived in this area and built sumptuous and opulent palaces that resembled medieval castles, Tuscan villas, etc…

During this tour, you will see many of these magnificent bourgeois residences, but above all, your guide will tell you the savory, amusing, surprising and sometimes even tragic stories and anecdotes that lie behind these majestic structures.

You will pass by McGill University campus and will also discover where the most wealthy Canadian of the mid-19th century, Sir Hugh Allan, lived. It’s a real trip back in time where you can relive the glory days of Montreal!
