  • It was a special day at the museum when we went, free entry. Very interesting Museum of Nature you can spend a good time to explore. On the top floor of the museum you can go out on the balcony and th...  read more »
  • Beautiful location! Loved the commitment to sustainability. Nice walking trails evident, in spite on the music festival. 
  • We took the ferry over ($7 round trip) and it was a great way to see the skyline of Montreal and catch some fall foliage. Once we were there, the island was very quiet, at least on the end away from t...  read more »
  • Bring your money to park your car. They want you to pay $20 to have a walk in this ordinary park. I called the administration and asked why they put fees to have us enjoy a few relaxing moments after a week of work. Well, the smart brains at the office said they consider the park a touristic attraction. It has nothing to do with any touristic attraction, it's a simple park. I pay if I park at the pool, I pay if I park at the beach, I pay if I park to see the Gilles Villeneuve track. All these are already tremendously expensive, thank you. The average income in Montreal is 40K but you are not aware because white collars make 2x or even 3x that amount on our taxes! I DON'T WANT to pay to have a walk in my park.
  • Absolutely terrible service by every employee I interacted with. I tried 4 times to bookan appointment to see Toundra for a wedding. The first time I spoke with a woman named Emilie and she was so rude on the phone. She was snobby and kept trying to NOT give me an appointment to see the venue. Finally I was able to convince her to give me an appointment. Then I had to reschedule it. I called twice, left two messages and never heard back. Then I emailed the venue and got an answer from Simon saying they cannot give me an appointment to come see the place, since they are 'occupied with events for 2016'. How do they expect to book events for 2017 if they don't let anyone visit?? I am EXTREMELY disappointed with this venue, and its employees Emilie and Simon who I dealt with. If anyone is trying to book a wedding with them, I would encourage you to go elsewhere. How helpful will these people be on that magical/stressful day, if at the initial interaction they have an inflated sense of self?
  • Nice park but note that the splash park is tiny and not worth the special trip. Also note that access to the park is limited due to construction. In addition, the playground seems to be closed(?)
  • It's a very nice parc with a historic value.
  • IleSoniq is shit. You'll pay cad250 for a two day festival (gold ticket) and some idiot from the staff will come and take the table you're using just because he can. I regret ever believing this shit would be good. Shame on you, Canadians. Would never come back.
