Loved learning about Old Montreal and getting to taste a variety of foods at different restaurants. Our guide, Carol Chef, was delightful and knowledgeable. I could have done with less food history and more Montreal history, but we still enjoyed it immensely.

Gabriel was fantastic as our tour guide, You could tell that he would make a great history teacher. His insight into Montreal history was so engrossing. The food was good but not great. There were too many people on the tour as it was Labor Day weekend. Twenty people in each group was too many for the small restaurants.

Tour was really fun and informative. The food sampling was good - a small taste of a few Montreal offers. It would have been nice to have a small sheet of information/map about the places we visited so we could go back on our own. We will recommend this tour to our friends and family.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was a very very cold day so it would have been good to change it up and have a hot drink along the way and a longer stop inside...overall a very good experience. Loved the smoked meat sandwich.
