You Can Rent A Classic Convertible To Drive Around Montreal With Your Friends This Summer

It's the VIP experience that you need to try in the city.
You Can Rent A Classic Convertible To Drive Around Montreal With Your Friends This Summer

Have you ever wanted to cruise the city in style? To wind through the streets of Montreal in a convertible, top down, enjoying the sun and the wind? A company in Montreal offers just that.

Throwback Tours is a company based in Montreal that offers historical tours of Montreal in classic convertibles.

Throwback Tours offers several different tour packages. The tours will show you everything that you need to see in the city while offering historical and architectural information.

The one-hour tour focuses on the buildings and the many restaurants in the Old Port. However, a trip up St-Laurent is also in order, so that you can take in the sights of Chinatown and "The Main" more generally. 

The tour guides will even give you personalised recommendations for restaurants, clubs and bars.

You can watch a video of the tour below:

The tour also stops in the Plateau for a look at the famous Montreal staircases. On the way back, the tour stops at the Bell Center so tourists can experience worshipping the Montreal Canadiens just like everyone else in the city.

The two-hour tour adds on some fun activities like stopping on Mont-Royal to take in the beautiful sights.

Because the drivers spend almost every day on the road, they know how to avoid the traffic and construction that riddles Montreal in the summer. 

You can be driven around in many different cars. Emerson, one of the co-founders of the company, has a soft spot for his own black 1970 Cadillac Deville Convertible, but he says that all of the cars are beautiful.

You can even rent a custom tour! If there is an area of the city that you want to see, or if you want to rent a car for a birthday, a wedding or prom, you can be picked up and dropped off in style.

The tour, therefore, isn't just for tourists: personally, I think it would make a great gift for the classic car lover in your friend group or family.
