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.

Ronald was the absolute best! He was vivacious and full of interesting and useful information. The size of the group was perfect--not too big.

We learned about the history and culture of Montreal through our incredibly knowledgeable, charming, fascinating guide. The bonus was tasting some of Montreal's unique and delicious food and connecting it to this beautiful, rich part of North America.

This was a fantastic tour - our host, Ronald, was so knowledgeable about both the history of the city and about the food. The time just flew past and we had an opportunity to see a little bit of the city and to try some delicious local delicacies. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone with a little time to spare in the city.

I've been on a walking food tour in our home city of Chicago (which is also a great food city, by the way!), but this tour in Old Montreal was really something special. Our guide Ronald Poire was witty and knowledgeable, helping us understand more of the history of Historic Montreal. The charm of the city comes through in the food samples, starting the day with macaroons and hot coffee, sampling some different pates and cheeses, and finishing with some delicious maple syrup gelato. A great way for new comers to get an intimate look at one of the most romantic and people friendly parts of Montreal.

My boyfriend and I did this tour on our first morning in Montreal. We arrived the night before, walked around a little bit and I remember having felt a bit disappointed in the city. I was expecting something more romantic, more French, more Paris-like based on the picture painted by the guidebooks. But in the morning, through this gourmet food tour, it's impossible not to fall in love with the city, because you hear about the history, you are told where to look and what to notice, you smell and taste great local produce in small delicatessens / restaurants, learn about which is the best cafe in the whole city....all that in a very small group (8 + guide), so it ends up being quite a personal experience.
Tip: tour started with the guide treating us for coffee and macaroons and I really regretted that croissant and latte that I had in a Starbucks just half an hour before the rendez-vous.
What did we taste: first place served fois gras, then local cheese and apple quintessence (tastes likely apple-y balsamic vinegar), the maple sirop icecream.
Guide: very knowledgeable, a real foodie, fluent in english and in French ( tour was in English), thinks much faster then he talks, so in his mind sometimes he was way ahead and it felt as if he was jumping around a bit. But all you need to do is listen closely and can ask a question any time.
Overall: we had a great time and can only recommend it
PS. : We went back to the fois gras place a couple of days later for lunch. We were not disappointed!
