  • Montreal food tour of Jean-Talon Market and Little Italy
  • Explore with a guide to discover under-the-radar spots
  • Learn how Montreal’s diversity shapes local cuisine
  • Includes all tastings for a hearty lunch
What to Expect
Meet your guide near Montreal’s biggest market. With your group, step into Jean-Talon’s maze of local produce, maple syrup, and specialty foods. The guide chooses seven stops for tastings, while introducing the diverse traditions of Montreal food. After exploring Jean-Talon Market, continue through the city streets, pausing for a tasting at a hole-in-the-wall Salvadorian place. Here and throughout the tour, take advantage of the small group format to ask questions about Montreal culture and food, getting tips on where to eat, drink, and explore in the city. Finish the tour at the edge of Little Italy, the place where in-the-know locals head for the city's best pasta and Latin American shops.

Tom was absolutely amazing! He was a wealth of knowledge about Montreal and provided an overview of what to expect at the beginning of the tour (how many stops, how much walking, bathrooms, etc). The food was definitely not what you think of when it comes to Montreal however it

My daughter, sister, niece and I took a tour with Marie. What a wonderful way to really learn a city. We went places that we would never have seen in our travels. Marie was friendly, informative and fun. It was a small group of 12 so we lol got a chance to ask her questions.

I’m not much for tours. I like making my own choices. Tours don’t allow for much of that... but in the case of our food tour with Spade and Palacio, I’m glad. Our guide, Danny, was wonderful. The stops on the tour couldn’t have been better. The proprietors were warm and
