A special way to explore Old-Montréal is by horse drawn carriage , locally known as "calèche".
A tour lasts half a hour and costs CAD 45 all-in.
Tours depart from:
-The perimeter of Place d’Armes
-Notre-Dame Street near Place Jacques-Cartier
-De la Commune Street near Place Jacques-Cartier
You can take a horse-drawn carriage ride around Old Montreal. I didn't do this, but I walked alongside the carriages quite often as I walked around the area and I listened to the tour guides. They seem quite informative. You can catch a ride in front of the Notre Dame Cathdral at Rue Notre Dame and St. Sulpice. One warning: watch your step in this area because the horses aren't potty-trained!
