Hire a Guide

Why hire a tourist guide who is a member of APGT Montréal?

APGT Montréal guides adhere to a professional code of ethics and subscribe to public liability insurance.

APGT Montréal guides are well-documented: our association promotes professional development, networking and sharing of information in a congenial and collaborative environment.

Montréalers first and foremost, our members are prepared to provide you with up-to-date and trendy information on local and regional current events. They can suggest a great variety of sights, restaurants and outings for your stay in Montréal. They are well-informed on upcoming events and the evolution of the many projects and construction sites within the metropolis (construction, public works, closed streets, detours). They can save you great trouble caused by traffic.

In addition to their guide training at the ITHQ, some thirty of our members have taken a customized training in bike leadership in urban environments. Well versed in the Road Safety Code for cyclists and the cycling path network, APGT-accredited cycling guides are the only ones to have an attestation from Vélo Québec Association, as well as a certification in emergency first aid with CPR/AED. Most guided bike tour itineraries through Montréal neighbourhoods have been designed by them.
