Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve answered our most common questions here:
Yes! We love having kids on our tours, however, the minimum required age on bike tours is 8 years old. If you feel your child can handle the ride, please contact us to let us know why and make sure we have a small enough bike available.
For families with children under 8, we recommend booking our Private Family Friendly Tour here.
We keep our group sizes than most other companies. Bike & Walking Tours are capped at 10 participants, while the average group size is around 7 or 8. For larger groups please contact us for a private or group tour quote.
During the Tour
Gratuities are greatly appreciated, although not mandatory. The standard gratuity in the service industry in Canada is around 15%. We recommend offering your guide $5-$10 per person if you enjoyed their tour!
Yes, bathrooms are available during the tour at selected break points. If you need to go during the ride, just signal to your guide and they will find a spot.
Our tours operate rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, we are able to adapt the tour to visit indoor areas or establishments (on walking tours). We recommend checking the weather conditions the day of your tour and bring an umbrella or rain jacket just in case.
On our bike tours we will have rain capes on hand.
The majority of the tours run in English, but as you probably know, Montreal is a French/English bilingual city and so are all our guides. For private groups, we can operate the tour in English, French, or Spanish. Please contact us.
Please bring your own water bottle – you can refill on route.
For bike tours bring a baseball cap to wear under the helmet we provide.
There will be plenty of photo opportunities, so do not forget your camera.
A bit of cash always comes in handy in case you want to buy a snack along the way, even though most of the places accept credit cards as well.
Tickets / Reservations
Yes, booking in advance is required. Our tours typically sell out quickly. To maximize your chances of getting the date, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance.
