What makes this tour special

Montreal is world famous for its colourful and eclectic urban street art scene, and hosts graffiti festivals every year. The largest city in Quebec has attracted thousands of street artists since the emergence of graffiti, muralism and street art in the 1970s. You'll get to explore this global hub of street art with an expert private guide on a fascinating, dynamic and mesmerizing two-hour walking tour. 

On your private tour, you will:


Montreal has become world famous for being the North American trailblazer in the urban street art scene. The city hosts two major graffiti festivals each year: UNDER PRESSURE and MURAL. 

Under Pressure celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2021 and hosts live talks, skating and painting sessions, and music with a focus on community development and youth engagement. MURAL is a massive international celebration of the arts that attracts millions every year since 2012. You'll find over 80 murals and installations by an amazing array of street artists around the St Laurent strip. 

On your two-hour private walking tour, you'll get to explore the famous St-Laurent Boulevard, the core visual identity of the city, that attracts major artists such as Roadsworth, Chris Dyer, Omen, and Bonar as well as collectives like HVW8 and En Masse - and so many more. 

You'll learn about the evolution of muralism and its significance in Mexico in the 1920s, and discover how Montreal was the first Canadian city to embrace this form of art back in the 1970s. Street art is at the very heart of the city's cultural identity - and its many artists pay homage to the city's other passions including sport and Leonard Cohen! 

You'll get to experience its incredible energy firsthand on this colourful private tour with a local expert guide.
