A most excellent food tour!!!
Patrick_B, Oct 2022
First and foremost Rod, our guide was excellent! If I could I would select him for another tour if I could! He really made an effort to make everyone in the group feel comfortable! I really appreciated the fact that he accommodated my wife’s food restrictions and although she didn’t enjoy everything she tried she was pleasantly surprised by some other New foods! Rod was knowledgeable and shared interesting stories and facts about each of the neighborhoods that we walked through. I absolutely adored the surprise he had planned at the end of the tour which made this food tour worth every penny!

We loved the beginning of the tour, but were a little disappointed with the end. It seemed weird to have chicken instead of something Italian in little Italy. Marie did a wonderful job telling interesting stories and giving us additional info when we asked.
Marie is a knowledgable...

Marie is a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. The tour itself was a lot of fun. It's aggravating to mot be able to submit without "saying more"!

Our tour guide Marie was exceptional!!!!!!!!!!! She was excited and passionate about her job. I loved the Jean Talon Market yet thought we could have sampled more there. In little Italy I would have loved to sample Italian food and leave off the coffee location as well as the final location of fried chicken/mac and cheese. The history surrounding the market and other locations was very interesting!

A must-do!
Elizabeth_D, Aug 2022
One of the best experIences we’ve done anywhere. Our guide, Marie, was knowledgeable and warm. We tried a very eclectic sampling of food from the market and from other area restaurants. Go hungry! Some of the samples were small tastes, but most were quite generous. A great way to see and learn about some lesser-known areas of Montreal.
Great guide and excellent...
Chuck_M, Aug 2022

It was our first time in Montreal, and this tour did not disappoint. We enjoyed the various types of foods. We loved the food market and its history.
A great tasting tour!
Katie_F, Aug 2022
We really enjoyed ourselves on this tour! It was our first day in the city and we absolutely loved walking around and learning from our knowledgeable and friendly guide, Danny! The food was absolutely delicious too. From the pupusas to the fried chicken and down to the sorbet, everything was flavorful and tasty. We absolutely loved our experience!
Great time on our tour!
Lanny_S, Aug 2022
Our guide Marie was fantastic! Loved the time at the market. Lots of interesting things to see and friendly people selling things. The picnic in the park to finish things off was really fun too.
Loved this food tour!...
Stefanie_M, Aug 2022
Loved this food tour! Marie was our guide and she was awesome. It was the perfect amount of food and we really got to try some unique things. Having a guide through the market was amazing- we never would have tried some of these things if we had just gone on our own.
Great food tour
Beth_D, Aug 2022
Rodrigo was an amazing guide! You can tell he loves what he does, and his knowledge of Montreal was so extensive. He wrangled our nine-person group with ease and we never felt rushed or stuffed. The pacing was perfect. I’d recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys food and a stroll around town. Thanks so much!
Great way to experience Montreal!
Rebecca_C, Jul 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Rodrigo! He was knowledgeable and kind, full of great information about Montreal. We enjoyed getting to know the city through a multicultural food tour. Of note was how he went out of his way to accommodate our dietary restrictions.
Awesome Beyond the market food tour

Alise (probably wrong spelling) was amazing. Great food and she she was very knowledgeable about the food experiences. Would recommend.
