This was a great food tour and one my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed. Danny, our guide, took us to some small food cafes and bars as well as the markets in the Jean-Talon area as well as the last mile and mile ex areas. Some were well established, others were start ups and Danny provided the background behind each one. The samples in the park from the Dinnete Triple Crown were a great way to end the tour. It was also nice to be given a cheat sheet at the end of the tour on where we had been and some further recommendations. We would highly recommend this tour to anybody interested in some of the more unique dining experiences that you don't see in guidebooks.

That was an amazing best experience in Montreal.
Our fantastic guide Francine was so informative and took us to so many places all different kinds of food and culture, land scape, architecture, all sorts of aspect to lean about Montreal, I felt like I had 7 course dinner with beer, desert even coffee and she even took us to lovely picnic at the park in the neiborhood. It was totally worth it. We'll walk quite a bit, so wear comfortable shoes

Our tour guide, Frances, gave us a lively perspectives on the neighborhoods as we walked along sampling specialties from local restaurants. She was enthusiastic and showed us a neighborhood garden which is cultivated by residents. The foods/beverages we tasted were terrific, especially Papusas from El Salvador which we had never tried before. We often learned about the restaurant owners coming from different countries and settling in Montreal. We sampled spices at the Jean Talon market. Our small group was congenial and we ended a fabulous tour with a picnic under a tree on a beautiful warm Sunday afternoon feasting in a nearby park on fried chicken and hush puppies!

The guide was tremendous. She was enthusiastic and really knew her stuff. She showed us places we would never have discovered ourselves and some food we had never eaten before. The neighbourhood places, the craft beer, the spots in the market and finally the picnic in the park we will never forget. A great tour, one of the best we have ever taken,

Outstanding tour! Ann Marie was incredible. Her love of her neighborhood is infectious. A great mix of eateries, places way off the beaten track. If you have an afternoon in Montreal, you cannot do better.

From the moment tour guide and passionate Montreal civic booster Anne-Marie met the group and explained the transformation taking place in the neighborhood with food and civic engagement on full display the group realized that a magical afternoon awaited them. Unlike other walking tours where you visit time-honored landmarks, this tour captures the spirit of daily life and communal celebration of a particular neighborhood that struggles to retain cultural identity ethnic diversity with modernity and economic determinism. Anne-Marie is the glue that holds this overview together with her fantastic appreciation for the simple joys of eating and enjoying flavors, imagination a sour-cherry beer and art murals and pocket garden treasures everywhere. I would absolutely recommend this 3 hour adventure culminating with a picnic in the park featuring chicken recipes from Kentucky and the comraderie of new friendships made.

This is great tour to turyly see what the locals see and eat around the Farmers market in Montreal. Loved the fact that the tours guides not only showed us what food they love but the surroundings as well of Montreal. Great job!

A must-do food tour while visting Montreal. Great tour guides take you beyond a basic food tour while touring new trendy spots...with a few surprises along the way.

Anyone or any guide book can get you to the greatest hits, but it takes someone who knows and loves the city to take you the real city where the real people live. Ann Marie, the co-owner, took us to her faviorite hot spots for food, green gardens and murals. Definitely the highlight of our trip!!

This tour was so enjoyable. The tour guide Danny was personable and clearly passionate about all his city has to offer. I saw many places I would never have found or experienced on my own which was the most fun aspect. Lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to something less touristy and lots of fun.

This was a last minute thing a coworker and I did on a business trip to Montreal. I was worth every penny. It was delicious, fun, and interesting. It had a personal touch and was off the beaten path. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

This was probably our favorite tour of all. We experienced such a wide variety of foods and this
excursion is well worth the money. You won't feel guilty at what you'll be eating and drinking, as
there is plenty of walking to rid yourself of the caloric intake.
The open air market was like going into a jewelry store of food choices! Most enjoyable and filling.
Our tour guide was the best!

Ann Marie, the co-owner, does nearly every tour and she is exceptional. Limited to 10 people, we could all hear. the pace was perfect and the experiences were unique and wonderful, from the papusas to the picnic in the park. Highly, highly recommend

Danny was great!! Very personable and knowledgeable about the area and the places he showed us. Loved the Salvadoran tasting at the beginning of the tour. We were a bit skeptical at first, but it turned out to be our favorite part of our vacation. Have already recommended him to several friends who may consider a trip to Montreal.

This was probably the best highlight of our Montreal trip. I went my my family of 4 and was greeted by Danny our awesome tour guide at the meeting point on time. We walked around the cool streets of Montreal and a few very green and good looking alleys with murals too. Danny embodies what Montreal as a city represents. He's got the soul of the city in him and that's what makes the tour really awesome. Now on to the food reviews -
It was the perfect global fusion overall.
We tried dishes from so many parts of the world and local places too.
The one really cool thing was, that unlike other food tours, where you only learn about the story behind the dishes, Danny also told us the amazing stories behind the establishments and the people who work / started the places. That was the cherry on the cake.
We started off with a few local spots.
The visit to the farmers market was incredible - We tried out veggies, meats, spices, cheeses, gelato all from different vendors.
The tour had a brew pub visit too where we tried two sets of beers along with cheese this was a local place. There was a local coffee roastery along the way as well, which had a really good cold brew.
It ended in a spectacular way with us eating goodies from a picnic basket, under the shade of a tree in a park.
Recommendations -
Carry water, a cap and sun glasses, wear shorts and a tee or something comfi, be ready to walk at an easy pace, come hungry but not starving, and just let Danny take care of your tummy.

Danny was a great guide. I loved the offbeat and off the beaten path places we went. The food and drink were nicely varied....smoked meats, artisanal cheeses, micro brewed beer, gelati, to mention just a few examples. Jean Talon market was amazing! My only suggestion is that more free time was allowed there. I really enjoyed this tour!

We did the Beyond the Market Food Tour with Anne Marie, and it was great. The variety of offerings was excellent, and hearty -- definitely come hungry! Anne Marie is so passionate about what she does, and her enthusiasm definitely comes across. And as a true local in the neighborhood, she has so many insights and color commentary about the area, the people who live there, and new spots that visitors to Montreal should check out. This tour is definitely worth doing when you're in Montreal.

This tour was great! Not only did we eat like locals and get a deeper look at the AMAZING Jean Talon market, but our guide was extremely accommodating. We forgot to contact her and let her know we eat mostly vegetarian fish and don't like beer. She was quickly texted restaurants and vendors and got us some delicious smoked fish when the group had charcuterie and sodas at the brewpub. Highly recommend it!
