Montreal treasure hunt and city tour

Montreal treasure hunt was created to offer you the best way to explore an amazing city.

Located as it is on the St. Lawrence, Montréal has prospered as a cosmopolitan hub of communications and trade.

Jacques Cartier landed here in 1535 and took the territory for his King, François I of France,

but it wasn’t until 1642 that Paul de Chomedey founded a small mission station here called Ville Marie de Mont-Réal.

This original settlement is today Montréal, the second largest French-speaking city in the world.

Although some may say it is only a Ferris wheel, it is an amazing place to visit in old Montreal especially in the festival season. It will bring a rather new experience as it was built in 2017 but if you take a ride you will be able to get some stunning views of the city from a height.
