We randomly walked into Ismael's free Vieux Montreal tour on Place d'Armes after a night of partying in Le Plateau. He and Frederik made our day with great stories and nice conversations (the sunshine helped as well). Heartily recommended!

Not being a big fan of tours normally, I was totally impressed by this jean-talon market tour.

From the first minutes our friendly guide Jérémy led us in this atmosphere eco-bio-local flavored by the smiling typical quebecois traders of the Jean Talon Market. Perfect for these cold gray days.

We let ourselves naturally transported by the multitude of flavors, textures and colors. Starting with this man who makes awesome crêpe filled with vegetables and cheese, then the baker and butcher, after this woman who sells huge, massive, big pumpkins, to eat afterwards three differents sorts of cheeses accompanied by ice cider. To top it all, the best dessert, cannolis in Little Italy.

The tour that makes you feel in the right place at the right time!

As a first timer of MTL, I wanted to find a way to explore the city in a break for the norm. And so with that in mind, I found this tour company. Offering a number of walking tours including MTL art and one in Vieux Montréal, they offer an interesting view of the city. Couple with engaging tour guides such as Ismael, I highly recommend this to visitors new and old to the city.

I brought a group of customers to Montreal and wanted to show them a different side of the city ( having already done the fine dining, shopping and nightclub scene). This tour was perfect! Phil was wonderful as a guide; informed, relaxed and passionate. The beer samples were plentiful and the Brie snack delightful. We all learned some new facts about beer and some interesting tidbits about Montreal and why it is described as the city of "Joie de Vivre". The Plateau area was beautiful with many interesting restaurants, shops and nightclubs for visiting either before or after the tour.

My parents, husband and I took this tour while visiting Montreal. It was really nice to go around Montreal with a local. The pace was not too fast and we learned somethings about the city that could be classified as "off the beaten path".

We toured the new, beautiful library, the Latin quarter, graffiti walls and museum, art district in general and really got a sense of how these areas came to be. We even went down into the Subway station which was kind of funny!

If you're not interested in the normal tour that takes you by the Basilica and Old Montreal, this is the tour for you. It's unique, interesting and the "entree" (aka, small plate) was a great break in the middle of the tour. Highly recommended!
