Know More about this tour

Over the years Montreal has held a reputation as a city that loves to eat, and eat well. A trip to the Jean-talon Market helps the outsider grasp the fact that farm-to-table is nothing new in town. On this food tour, you'll sample regional delicacies and meet the producers who take pride in the quality and distinction of their harvest.

Strolling through the city streets, you'll gain a better understanding of why diversity is synonymous with Montreal. The Vietnamese neighbor the Italians and further east the Latinos share the streets with the Maghrebis. Sit down for a full-flavored tasting at the citys favorite Salvadorian hole-in-the-wall.

The Mile-Ex district is a peculiar part of town that has boomed in recent years, and it's here where young entrepreneurs are reshaping the local culinary scene. Savor the newest craft brews and learn about the progressive coffee renaissance one sip at a time.

Conclude your tour at the doorstep of Little Italy. Enjoy some comfort food with your new friends and set off on your own adventure with a list of your guide's favorite local food spots.

    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!

    Our tour guide Rodrigo was exceptional for the Beyond the Market tour. We really enjoyed the different tastings we did including the ice cream and the final surprise tasting! We explored a new part of Montreal we may have otherwise not gone to on our quick trip to Montreal. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to explore the markets and learn about the areas of Montreal.

    Rod was our guide and he did a fantastic job. I am living in Montréal and I discovered things on the tour I didn't know existed! I would recommend this tour for anyone! There was a good mixture of tasty bites (an opportunity to sample different things on offer at the market) and generous servings. Am booking my next tour!

    Rod was our guide. He did an outstanding job. We really enjoyed the tasting of everything from ice cream to cheese to chartuceri to the wonderful surprise at the end. It was a top notch tour, and we’ve taken many food tours in different countries. The only negative is that you must be in decent shape for the amount of walking.

    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 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!
