See the historic side of Montreal in its compact Old Town and then venture into the bucolic countryside for lunch and a glimpse into its traditional apple cider production.

Depart from the pier and travel directly into the heart of Old Town, a once-walled area where the city was founded in 1642. As you stroll along the cobbled streets, you will see icons such as the Notre-Dame Basilica, which when completed in 1829 was the largest house of worship in North America. It still commands attention, as do the other unforgettable sites such as the courthouse, city hall and various squares where Montreal's history unfolded.

For a different perspective of the city, you will then drive into Plateau Mont Royal, a predominately Francophile neighborhood with beautiful stone buildings, wrought-iron staircases and bohemian undercurrents. A former working class district, it has been gentrified and become an attractive environment for trendy boutiques and restaurants.

Then, it's off into the countryside for an inspired lunch that reflects the local cuisine. This rural area is also renowned for its flourishing apple orchards and apple-based products, which you will discover at a tasting at the family-owned Jodoin cider house. Its ice cider is particularly distinctive. It's made with three apple juice varieties and then frozen and fermented to create a delicately sweet beverage with an intense finish. The cider is often paired with strong cheeses and foie gras. Following this tasting, you will return to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2.5 hours of easy to moderate walking/standing over mostly flat surfaces; although there are cobblestone streets in Old Town. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
