We took 12 on a "private" bar hopping tour - very easy to coordinate, had to pay for the first 6 up front and then invited others that were at our conference and they called directly to book theirs. It was fun to see 3 different bars, have snacks and get a little history while we were at it. Only... More

My husband and I have done food tours all over the world - Firenze, split, Portland, San Francisco, etc - and I have to say that this one had the least food - more of a walking and history tour with some food information. The only reason I actually scored this a 3 was for Ronald the tour guide who... More

We took this tour while on a very brief stopover in Montreal and it gave us a great overview of the history of the city and some of the delicious specialities of the region. Our guide, Ronald, was absolutely excellent - he has a real knowledge of both the food and history of Canada, and he kept us extremely well... More

This was a 2 and 1/2 hour food tour taking place in the Montreal Jean Talon market with a bit of little Italy (the Madonna della Defesa (Our Lady of Protection) Church and Dante Park) . Lise our guide who was very nice took us around the market where we started first by tasting some Turkish delight , then some... More

So, I most likely would have not visited the Jean Talon market if I didn't do this tour. The tour was fine and informative. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly, although could have been a little louder at times. We had a few samples along the way and finished with coffee and a cannoli. However, the highlight was actually the... More

I was with a group tour, so I'm not sure if we got the "normal" tour or something special, but it was FANTASTIC. We stopped at several different cafes in Old Montreal while getting a guided tour of the area and insight into the food there. Our guide, Ronald, was most excellent in both areas and I could tell that... More

Went on three different tours with this company. All were excellent! On one tour I was the only one who spoke English and they did a great job of keeping me up to date.

We took a tour and visited three restaurants for a progressive dinner. The restaurants selected and food enjoyed was wonderful. Our tour guide was interesting and fun and shared a lot of great stories both historical and about the food of Quebec. We had a group of sixteen and it was a great way to have an evening out so...

I very much enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to others. In fact, being the only Montrealer on the tour, I thought I would know a lot of what we were to learn but in fact this was not the case. Our guide was great, very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour didn't focus on food as much as I... More

If you have more than a passing knowledge of Quebec then you probably need a more in-depth tour or if you are a true foodie the same applies. Since most of the people on our tour were from the US or other areas of Canada, this was more of an introduction. The guide was quite knowledgeable and able to answer... More
