After we'd eaten, we took a stroll down to Old Montréal and looked in some shops. You can tell when you've entered old Montréal because the road turns into cobblestones and the French because much more abundant despite the fact that it's less than a kilometer to regular Montréal.

Later we decided to see if we could get a spot on an Amphi tours bus/boat. It's basically the equivalent to the Duck Tours in Boston: a tour of the city that goes from bus to boat. However, we didn't have to get tickets months in advance for this one and we managed to get tickets for the 2:30 tour.
To pass time before our tour, we stopped in here.
...for some maple syrup ice cream and to have a look around the (not-so-impressive) maple syrup museum.
Our tour guide spoke in both French and English... that was interesting. We started by going around the city in bus-mode and pointing out famous old buildings etc. etc. We saw the old stock exchange building, the floating bank safe and the huge silos by the water (also where 300 was filmed). In the water, we cruised about the harbor and saw some more building and the docks and, my favorite, THE UNFINISHED GAME OF TETRIS!
