Fun outing in the Old City of Montreal. Tour guide Stacey was lively and knowledgeable, stops were well-planned, food was remarkable. Our expectations were met, and we enjoyed the experience.

Very educative. We had Ron as our tour guide he was a book full of facts! Very pleasant. The food was amazing. We sample 5 foods: duck and pig pate, macaroons, a tart, smoked meat sandwich and maple gelato! Great tour for price. A must do! P.s meet to the right of the basilica on the stairs!

Excellent choice for me and my friend. Stacey was enthusiastic and a fantastic tour guide. Lots of great information and we went back to two of the venues later. I would recommend this short, informative tour to anyone going old Montreal.

Loved everything about this tour! Our guide Stacy was wonderful. Her knowledge of Old Montreal history and beyond made this outing so interesting and enjoyable. It would not have been what is was without her depth of history. Appreciate her sweetness and love of history in general. 5 out of 5!

It was a really nice experience, the places that we visited were beautiful, very clean and the people were very nice with the customers. Our tour girl was amazing, she is young and knows a lot about Canadian history and food. I enjoyed the tour, it was a great b-day gift!

This was a great way to start a Saturday! The group met on the steps of the Notre Dame Basilica on time. Our tour guide Ronald was informative, funny, and professional. I appreciated the historical comparisons over time and between countries. We made several stops in front of old buildings and important places for Montreal's past. We had a pate tasting at the first stop, pastel-de-nata custard pastry at the second, macaron at a bakery/pastry shop, pastrami/smoked meat at the next, and maple syrup and chocolate at the last place. All were small tastings, not meals, but were rich and flavorful, so I did not feel like I was missing out on anything. The weather was quite cold, so if you go during the winter months, dress accordingly. There's not a lot of time to take pictures I suggest taking a few here and there and then just enjoy the tour in real time. One suggestion would be to bring your own coffee, tea, or some other drink along the way. Water was provided at two stops.

The tour was very informative and definitely exceeded my expectations. It was a great way to start the day in Montreal and expose me to some shops and parts of the Old Town that I had not been to before. I would highly recommend it to other visitors to the city.

This is the very best experience we had during a delightful visit to Montreal. Our guide was Stacy. She was friendly, informative and fun. She mingled interesting history with food sampling during our walk. She kept the group going yet always found time to answer individual questions. She made sure our group knew how to return to any one of our food stops if we wanted to return on our own. We have traveled to quite a number of cities and countries and I believe she is either one of the best or the very best tour guide we have experienced. It is apparent she loves people and enjoys her job. Viator...she's a keeper and please always keep this tour available to visitors. If we get back to Montreal, we will do it again.

Our guide Pam was great. Very knowledgeable and funny as well. The places we ate at were all great as well - and we went back to several of them later on our own.

very enjoyable and informative. The guide was great. He was full of interesting information about the history of Montreal and the history of food in general. Nice amount of walking interspersed with stops at a few places to taste traditional Montreal food items such as smoked meat and ice cream made with maple syrup. I would recommend this tour.

We had a chance to taste Montreal in a way that we wouldn't be able to do on our own. Our guide, Martine, was excellent. She knew answer to all our questions and we could tell she loved her job.

Tour guide was engaging and informative on food, trade, history, culture, and even linguistics. He's a great resource for questions on many topics, from cuisine and restaurants to other worthwhile sites to visit in Montreal. Not a lot of walking so anyone can do it- my whole family of 5 enjoyed it.

Our guide was extremely informative about Montreal history as well as food. We tried different classes of food. We even sneaked back the next day to the bakery he took us to to buy pastries for our family next door- even other tourists at our hotel asked for the direction to the bakery.
