Guided walking & biking tours

So, you want to visit Montreal? Welcome to Self Propelled in Montréal

This is my city, and I started propelling myself through her streets, up and down the Mountain and around her perimeter many moons ago.  I do believe it is a fantastic place to live and visit, and it is well laid out for both walking and bicycling. Want a little preview? Read my 'reports' on some of the cities best detours here.

As a local tour guide, I can share what I know with visitors from across the globe. For a personal, bespoke tour experience, which can cover either the classic elements of Montreal, or some of our cooler neighbourhoods, feel free to contact me personally via email or my facebook page.

If you are looking for a local challenge, Self Propelled Travel invites you to try some segments of the ‘Perimeter Walk , a route which takes you around the entire Island of Montréal. The route offers incredibly diverse neighbourhoods; tony suburbs, historical settlements, deep industrial landscapes and beautiful waterfront parks. And all are accessible by public transportation.
