Delicious and educational!
Oct 2019 • Friends
Tom was absolutely amazing! He was a wealth of knowledge about Montreal and provided an overview of what to expect at the beginning of the tour (how many stops, how much walking, bathrooms, etc). The food was definitely not what you think of when it comes to Montreal however it really embraced the multicultural feel of the city. Also love that we got to experience/support small businesses. Highly recommend!!!

Fantastic tour with a Wonderful Guide
Oct 2019
My daughter, sister, niece and I took a tour with Marie. What a wonderful way to really learn a city. We went places that we would never have seen in our travels. Marie was friendly, informative and fun. It was a small group of 12 so we lol got a chance to ask her questions. Highly recommend this tour company and especially Marie.

Hi! Happy you were able to get some one on one time with Marie Pier and enjoyed the guaranteed groups of 10 or less. It means a lot to us that you shared your experience and hope we can host you again on another route when back :) Cheers

Such a unique pleasure!
Oct 2019 • Couples
We did the Beyond the Market food tour and it was such a pleasure! Our tour guide Marie was amazing; so knowledgeable, sweet and fun. By far the best thing we did during our visit to Montreal. I hesitated to book a tour because it's not the kind of thing I would normally do, (no hate to tours but you kind of never know what you are getting yourself into and three hours is a bit of a commitment.) It turned out to be such a refreshingly unconventional tour, showing us aspects of the city and local food culture that we really would not have been able to access on our own, at least not in such an efficient and potent dose. It has opened my mind and now I want to book tours in every city I visit! And I would definitely book another tour with this company next time I am in Montreal. It was truly a joy.

Amazing experience
I’m not much for tours. I like making my own choices. Tours don’t allow for much of that... but in the case of our food tour with Spade and Palacio, I’m glad.

Our guide, Danny, was wonderful. The stops on the tour couldn’t have been better. The proprietors were warm and friendly. Their wares were all great. We had such a good time and felt Danny knew Montreal and its offerings so well that we went to a place he recommended for dinner, Restaurant Manitoba. That was also an amazing experience.

I recommend Spade and Palacio, and specifically Danny, without reservation.

A delicious day
We had a lovely day with Daniel as he told us about the food and businesses that we visited. I think my favorite was the El Salvadoran pupusa with the outdoor market a close second. You will see neighborhoods and streets that are off the beaten track and it’s a welcome change form tourist destinations.

Very interesting with good food, lots of places which you could by yourself.
Daniel, who surely deserves a beet or two added local insight then added greatly to the tour......

Fantastic!
Oct 2019
We've done a lot of food tours, and this was definitely one of the best we've ever done. The food was great, and the portions were generous. The non-food part of the tour was also very informative, taking us into some little known up-and-coming Montreal neighborhoods with cool murals. Daniel was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and included a "cheat sheet" with all the locations we visited as well as local restaurant recommendations - very thoughtful. We went back to several locations during our stay in Montreal to have complete meals. I heartily recommend this tour!

We’ve discovered that the best tour to do in a new place is a Food Tour as you learn so much about different neighborhoods to visit plus delicious food. This was The Best ever. Marie was knowledgeable and incredibly kind and patient with us. I quite simply can’t recommend this tour enough

The food tour is such an insider's view to less visited and though not always pretty, authentic parts of our neighbourhoods. Thanks for joining Marie-Pier and us. Make it back for a bike tour next time.

Great tour, great guide
Marie was our guide, checked in with us a few days prior to confirm if we had and allergies of sensitivities which was nice.

She was a delight, so warm and knowledgeable my wife and I really enjoyed having her as our guide.

This tour celebrates the beautiful diversity of Montréal via its food. Highly recommend this tour and if you get Marie you’ll have a great time.

Hi!

 The food tour is the best way to see an entirely different and missed section of the city. Happy Marie-Pier showed you a good time, she really is amazing and we're so lucky to have her! Cheers
