Overview
Charming Montreal is actually two cities in one: There’s the city everyone knows with its Old World accents, and then there’s the underground city known as RESO. This 1.5-hour guided tour explores the city's popular above-ground sites and the subterranean city where 500,000 people circulate daily among 2,000 shops, hotels, bars and restaurants. Learn about the engineering behind this underworld as you explore the various nooks below one of Canada’s most dynamic cities.

Pass By
Meet your guide inside the Tourist Information Center for your afternoon tour of Montreal’s RESO, the world’s longest underground tunnel network, a multilevel maze of 21 miles (33 km) of walkways, passages and shopping malls.  Start off with an above-ground stroll, hitting some of the major sites in Montreal: the bustling Rue Sainte-Catherine, which runs parallel to the largest segment of the underground city; the neo-Gothic Christ Church Cathedral; Les Cours Mont-Royal, an elegant above-ground shopping mall; and Dorchester Square, the leafy late 19th-century plaza.  And then it’s time to descend into RESO. The Underground City began in 1962 under Place Ville-Marie and has been developing extensions ever since. The 1.5-hour tour covers a carefully selected portion of RESO (from réseau, French for ‘network’) to show you the highlights of this vast underworld. Learn the history of this engineering marvel from your expert local guide and walk the multi-level passageways learning about the best restaurants, bars and shops beneath Montreal.
