Ohh my goodness, I absolutely LOVED the tour! We had organic falafel pita, pasta in homemade sauce, chocolate, bagel, meat and cheese (I skipped the meat bc I and #39;m vegetarian), checked out a theatre, alley, and bakery place. Amazing, informative, and delicious! Also, my guide was incredibly sweet.
The Mile End Food Tour in Montreal was spectacular!! To begin with, Mile End is a very fascinating part of the city to visit, so we were glad the tour was held here as we might not have otherwise had the chance to experience it. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and presentation was done well. She was more than happy to answer questions. All the food we were given at different places was excellent and we were shown a lot about the eateries. We highly recommend.
Interesting leaders, area, nice weather and really great and varied food. Nice history and orientation to area.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and the various ethnic foods around the area. The food sampling was absolutely delicious to say the least.

Despite the less than optimal weather, the tour was wonderful. There was plenty of food and our guide Justin was delightful. He has lived 15 years in the Mile End and clearly loves the neighborhood. He was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained with stories and facts. I highly recommend!
The tour was great! The perfect mix of food and history. Our guide Darren was fantastic! He was knowledgeable and friendly. I was in a wheelchair due to a medical issue, and he went out of his way to accommodate this. I really appreciated being able to go on the tour. A fantastic time!
What a wonderful tour! Darren was an amazing guide. So nice and informative and helpful. His love of the area shined through, and his enthusiasm made the tour so much fun! The food was delicious at all of the stops! Thanks for putting together such a great tour!
Our group of eight women had a great time on this tour. The food was fantastic, but it was our guide who really stood out. Darren was knowledgeable with a great sense of humor and helped us navigate the streets of Montreal with a member of our party in a wheelchair. He was so accommodating in tough situations that weren't particularly wheelchair-friendly. We're so appreciative that he made it a pleasant day instead of viewing our circumstances as a problem. Would recommend this tour to anyone looking to get a snapshot of Montreal and leave with a full stomach!
This was a great variety tour through a neighborhood I didn't know existed. The food was diversified from falafel, to gnocchi, to a delicious bagel, to a meat and cheese platter,to awesome ice cream. Our tour guide, Francois, was very knowledgeable and friendly. The only issue I had was there were too many places we had to stand to eat. Even with that, it was a superior tour worth doing.
Sebastian was an absolutely fantastic tour guide - knowledgeable, friendly and positive. This tour really immerses you to experience the local food culture in the Mile End neighborhood and the food is plentiful and delicious. Can't recommend this tour highly enough. Thanks again Sebastian!
Really enjoyed this tour. We were a little hesitant not knowing what to expect. We had a wonderful guide named Vera and she lives in this neighborhood and really loves it. Be sure and go hungry for this tour. The food was delicious and the portions are big! Great neighborhood, very artsy, wonderful food! Highly recommend it!

Despite the cold drizzle, the tour was fun and interesting with much good food.
Absolutely loved it. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and despite the freezing cold weather it was great to learn about the city (it was our first visit to montreal.). We are big foodies, and we liked several spots so much that we returned for more after the tour! Highly recommend

This was a great trip in a diverse and unusual neighborhood. Our group of 10 made it easy to get around. We started at a vegan restaurant and munched our way along streets and even alleyways. We tasted Montreal bagels that tasted more like pretzels, hand-crafted chocolates, sorbets and other goodies. We even talked with one of the residents of the multi-story walk-up apartments. The woman candidly talked about living in the changing neighborhood and winters with the treacherous outside stairways. This tour encouraged us to take food tours in other cities. The guide did a great job and really 'served' the group.
We had a great time on this tour. Our tour guy Mark was fun and knowledgable about the food and history if the Mile End area. The portion sizes in this tour of 7 restaurants were impressively large and the food was all very good! It was a 3 hour leisurely walk not at all rushed or fast paced.
Marc was an excellent guide and host. We toured a very interesting neighborhood which we wouldn't have visited had it not been for this tour. Our guide provided detailed information about the food and the area. We've been on food tours in other cities and this is rated among the top.
Fantastic tour! The food was exceptional and enough to get you full! Well worth your time and money!
An excellent food tour to 7 places in Mile End: 6 food stops and the Rialto Theater. The tour guide was amazingly passionate and friendly during the whole time. The tour started at the panthere verte for a felafel tasting (was very good) .The 2nd stop was Boucherie Lawrence where we tasted 3 different charcuteries and 3 cheeses along with a local beer - it was a delight, everything was exquisite .Then we went for the 3rd stop at Kem Coba for a swirl strawberry sorbet and cheese cake ice cream (delicious). After that, we continued our walk towards the famous St Viateur Bagel and had a sesame bagel fresh from the oven (delightful). Our 5th stop was at the Rialto Theater which was a gem to look at. Then we walked a few steps to Phyllo Bar Mélina where we had Greek food tasting – example: Spanakopita (only place that was average). Last, we ended our tour at Chocolats Geneviève Grandbois where we had many delicious chocolate tasting. Overall the tour was extremely enjoyable and highly recommended.
Very interesting neighborhood. Good to learn about a vibrant but less visited area. The food finds were expertly selected for real unique and quality driven products along with historical information about the neighborhood. Our guide also had excellent knowledge of the area.
