Our guide and I'm sorry I don't remember her name, gave an informative and entertaining tour. The tasting choices were perfect and the history that went with them very interesting.

The tour guide was funny and very knowledgeable. I learned a lot about the history, architecture, and culture. He had many recommendations where to go after the tour as well. This tour was more of a history tour with samples of food tasting compared to other food tours I've been on, but they all represented the flavors of Montreal with mixed cultures. I really enjoyed it. It was a hot day, and I wish I had brought a bottle of water with me with all that walking.
