5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

The tour was EXCELLENT. Our guides brought the tour alive by integrating the background history, culture, and economics into the foreground of the food tour. This background gave us an evolutionary perspective on the people, market, and food.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2013

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 local made bread , after that we went to taste 2 different cheeses (black goat cheese and Charlevoix Hercule cheese) with Spruce beer . Next, we continued exploring and reached a sausage stand that had sausages made of : Bison , Deer , Duck , Boar , etc... We took Bison (excellent) and Boar (not bad). During the walk we were explained the history of the Madonna Della Defesa church and the Dante's Park. Last we reached the International cafe where we had a cannolli and a cappuccino (simply delicious).


Overall very interesting and Lise the guide was a delight.
