What you'll do

We meet in the borough with the highest concentration of artists in front of the first urban art gallery in Canada.

We're going to be hitting the streets of the Plateau Mont-Royal to check out anywhere between 20 - 30 works of art. The murals range from 2 - 9 storeys tall. We'll be learning about the artists, the message and different techniques as well as about Montreal street art and graffiti scene.

We'll take to the smaller back streets and alleyways to cover some hidden gems and just might witness some live work.

At the end of the experience we'll be handing you a list of recommendations for craft beer, local designer shopping, COOL art galleries and the best food. The essentials of travel, quoi. Ask your guide to point out other great street art locations to continue on your own.

Our guests are our new friends we show around town, a town we just happen to know a lot about.

Great experience! Wasn't expecting much, but Danny explain to us a lot of things that are not noticeable by a non-artist. I totally recommend it

Not sure what to expect when I booked this experience, but really pleased that I did. Danny is an excellent guide who presented our group (all native Montrealers) to a new and fascinating culture of mural art. We saw works of art that we might not have noticed before and have come away with a new sense of appreciating and understanding for this art form with its techniques, styles, subject matters and messages. I highly recommend this tour to tourists and Montrealers alike.

If you want to get a feel of the Montreal art scene and dive into the history and meanings behind street murals and graffiti, this tour is a perfect place to do so! Danny is a very knowledgeable and passionate guide ready to answer all of your Montreal-related questions! Thanks to engaging storytelling and fantastic art pieces, the time flew by. I also got inspired to explore more on my own and spent a couple of hours wandering around the area and discovering new pieces. Highly recommend!
