AMAZING! Great tastings! The sight and sound of this market are just mesmerizing. I'd love to live in this neighborhood and come to this market every weekend. The guide was very patient and took us to many locations and she let each store owner/worker to explain their products. I loved how each person was passionate about their products and see the love and dedication to their work. There were quite a few sweet tastings towards the end. I stayed after the tour and went back to places and visited many more vendors and had my own tastings. This is worth your time. You will walk quite a lot, so wear comfortable shoes and bring water.

Really enjoyed this wonderful tour! Very generous food tastings! The history we learned was remarkable. Our guide, Stacy, was very passionate and fun! She had a wonderful sense of humor. I would definitely recommend this as a must do while visiting Montreal!! Tres bien!!!

Fantastic way of discovering food shops you would never have known existed. We were fortunate to go in late September, abundant harvest season - Oh my I never saw so many apple and fruit varieties! I thought I was in heaven itself! and there's a surprise in the end but I won't mention it so as to not spoil the fun.

I had a great time. The tour guide was very charming and enthusiastic about the various food options that Montreal has to offer and the history of the city. I highly recommend it!!

This was our most enjoyable tour of our four day stay in Montreal. Our guide was excellent and made for a fun afternoon. It was fortunate that we arrived early. The designated pickup spot was very difficult to find. I would suggest a more prominent location.

Great to visit all the shops around the Jean Talon Market too! Loved the Jean Talon Market, made us want to live there just so we could shop there.

The tour was EXCELLENT. Our guides brought the tour alive by integrating the background history, culture, and economics into the foreground of the food tour. This background gave us an evolutionary perspective on the people, market, and food.

This was a 2 and 1/2 hour food tour taking place in the Montreal Jean Talon market with a bit of little Italy (the Madonna della Defesa (Our Lady of Protection) Church and Dante Park) . Lise our guide who was very nice took us around the market where we started first by tasting some Turkish delight , then some local made bread , after that we went to taste 2 different cheeses (black goat cheese and Charlevoix Hercule cheese) with Spruce beer . Next, we continued exploring and reached a sausage stand that had sausages made of : Bison , Deer , Duck , Boar , etc... We took Bison (excellent) and Boar (not bad). During the walk we were explained the history of the Madonna Della Defesa church and the Dante's Park. Last we reached the International cafe where we had a cannolli and a cappuccino (simply delicious).


Overall very interesting and Lise the guide was a delight.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The choices of food were disappointing and no Italian food except for the cannoli at an Italian pastry shop. So my recommendation would be to include more food choices and to KEEP the tour guide. She was great!

Tour could have included more tastings. Our guide was very knowledgeable about both food and its history. Really liked the Jean-Talon market.

The food Tour was extremely informative-the samplings of food were like a Reward for choosing this tour. The walk was very comfortable, all locations were within easy access to the Jean Talon Market. The guide offered many historical highlights of the area as it evolved from just a bus terminal area. The Italian neighborhood was interesting.

Very interesting and tasty tour of the jean talon market with Stacy, who was a ball of information and a very nice young woman too! And the last stop at the Internationale for real fresh cannoli was a fine touch. Only recommendation would be to add more of Little Italy which then would've ranked a 4th star

I believe that if you grew up in Europe and experienced the European markets, consider a different tour.
