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.
The tour was not what we expected.We thought there would be demo on the foods prepared but there was none.. It was just promoting the store owner on the six places we visited but not to the right crowd since
most of us are tourist and not from Montreal. Walking was okay and the fee was expensive. We were a little
disappointed ..My sister-inlaw said we might be in the wrong place
when we arrived because of the area, but again their purpose is to help and advertise those places.
