There’s no doubt that Montreal has a certain essence to it. A living, breathing, charm that is built into the streets and captures your heart as you walk along with it.
Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s easy to forget about that magic. So why not leave it to some tourists to remind you of why you fell in love with Montreal in the first place?
This gorgeous video filmed by Christopher George shows over thirty visitors from around the world experiencing Montreal for the first time.
Whether it was the European architecture and cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, the grand Notre Dame Basilica, or even just the bagels, every visitor found something to love.
Many of them compared the streets and alleyways of Old Port to those of France.
They got lost in the quaint cafes, the poutine, and couldn’t decide whether St. Viateur or Fairmont had the better bagels.
And they all fell in love with the energy of the city, from the musical swings to the downtown streets.

Maybe it’s the music, the skilled camera work, or the zealous affection of every visitor, but our beautiful city is something truely special.
