Old Montreal Food Tour


WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE OLD MONTREAL FOOD TOUR?

One-of-a-Kind Food Tastings — This 3-hour guided walking tour brings you on a culinary voyage through Montreal’s historic district. We walk through European-style cobblestone streets to five different tasting locations, stopping at historic landmarks. Four of our tasting locations are sit-down restaurants, including one brewpub serving local craft beer. They range from a local gluten-free bakery, to a café serving a classic Montreal bagel topped with salmon. Two traditional Québécois tastings are included along the way while you discover and savour Montreal’s history. In between food tastings, we learn about Montreal’s culture and history, through its old and not-so-old buildings, in a fresh Local Montreal Tour way! All food tastings are included in the ticket price. Please see tasting locations on the right.

Historic & Cultural Experience — Walking through the narrow cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, you will have the chance to relax and take in old-world charm, as your guide leads you to the district’s richest historic spots. Old Montreal is an excellent example of the city’s English and French heritage, which we discuss and observe by visiting various important landmarks. Our tour provides you with a unique way of discovering these landmarks, as our local guides share their first-hand experience of these cultures. They will share the stories behind the Old Port, Notre Dame Basilica (we do not enter the church), public squares and more. You’ll even get an idea of how these stories relate to today’s culture.
