Customer Travel Tip: Mont Royal, easily. Just a stunning place.

Liked: Montreal is beautiful and has a wonderful mix of nature, history and a modern cityscape. It also has great nightlife and a wonderful relaxed vibe.

Disliked: Barely anything, public transport is good but could be slightly better for some areas. It is a city you end up walking quite a lot.

Customer Travel Tip: acknowledge that French is the first language for most people, but don't get stressed and anxious about it - a simple "Bonjour, je ne parlez pas Francais" works great. Almost everyone is bilingual and they don't mind speaking to you in English if you don't speak French, but they appreciate you acknowledging their culture and language. Try out some of the small restaurants on the little side streets - fantastic food!

Liked: Great, walkable city with easy public transportation, fantastic restaurants, and lots to do. I was very fortunate to be there when the weather was unseasonably warm and sunny too!
