    Great Walking Tour
    Great tour. Guide was extremely knowledgeable, and gave us a fascinating view of Jewish History in Montreal. I would highly recommend this tour. Knowledge and some exercise all in one package. I would definitely take this tour again.

    Great tour if you can find it (don’t book through TripAdvisor)
    Great tour. We would go with 5-stars, but booking through TripAdvisor was a big mistake. We never received a departure point and held up the tour for 20 minutes. Fortunately, someone from the tour called looking for us and told us where to meet the group. Book directly from the Jewish Museum. The tour itself was lots of fun. Recommend skipping breakfast that day. We had food from 2 bakeries, 2 bagel places and a half sandwich of smoked meat from Schwartz’s. Definitely a great tour to take.

    Urban immersion at its most delicious!
    Starting at the Rialto Theater, Samara expertly and professionally lead 12 of us through an up close and personal exploration of Montreal's Jewish history and culture, from the perspective of cuisine. From sweet baked goods like Cheese Crowns and Chocolate Babka, to the two premier examples of the legendary Montreal bagel, and finally to specialty sandwiches and smoked meat, this tour was an absolute delight! Paced perfectly, we walked, we learned and we snacked --- it was wonderful.

    Wonderful thought-provoking tour of Le Plateau neighborhood, Montreal
    My family and I loved this tour. We learned a great deal and it was so interesting to be ensconsed in one particular neighborhood and understand how Jews flocked to the neighborhood and ultimately thrived there. We felt like we were really a part of that time and place. Our guide (don't know her name - was on 8/17 in the afternoon) was terrific. She knew so much about the history and made it come alive. Highly recommend the tour!

    Walk, talk, learn about Jewish history!
    Romy was an upbeat, knowledgeable, and friendly tour guide. We learned a lot about the history of Jewish people and businesses in the area. Two hours was plenty of time, would not want it any longer. Thank you and we wish you well in your studies!

    Had a great time and learned a lot about Montreal’s Jewish community through history and food. Our guide, Ashley, was well informed about the neighborhoods and their businesses and was a gracious host for our group at each of our stops.

    Excellent Historical Tour Of The Jewish Quarter of Montreal
    Our knowledgeable and friendly guide, Romy gave us lots of interesting information about the history of the Jews in Montreal as we walked through key areas of the Jewish Quarter. She was open to questions and comments and was so fun to get to know! We learned so much from taking the tour and definitely recommend this activity to others visiting Montreal!

    VERY informative!!!
    We like to check out Jewish stuff wherever we go and we found this tour online. We were four couples all in our 60’s and me in my 70’s. And all of us agreed that this tour was wonderful. Our guide, Romy, was incredibly well-informed. She brought along a binder with lots of pictures of the past. We learned a lot about the Montreal Jewish community past and present and the fact that Jews first arrived in the area in the 18th century. If you are not tremendously mobile, like me, this tour is fine. It is LONG…about 2 hours. But there are lots of stops and places to sit. Enjoy!!!!

    Please Improve This Tour
    Sad to say that this was possibly the worst food tour that I've ever been on. It was much too long, the guide read from a binder the entire time, and much of the food offered (as we mostly stood around on a sidewalk) was mediocre and packaged. Honestly, if they can't find or train engaging and knowlegable people to do this kind of work, they shouldn't be offering these tours. I felt like I wasted my time and money. I've been on many food tours and you typically stop at restaurants for bites and drinks, with commentary from the restaurant owners. And, the tour guide knows their stuff-that's a given. This was just ridiculous.

Hannah was very knowledgeable and had great knowledge of the area history and subject matter. We learned a ton of great facts on our walk, and visited a number of interesting sites that we would like to come back to. It was an incredibly useful addition to our time in the area and it is highly recommended.

The tour combined history with architectural and cultural perspectives resulting in a very satisfying 360 degree panorama of Jewish life in Montreal. The tour guide was a Montreal native with a winsome personality whose family background coincided with much of the subject matter; for example with stories from her bubby (grandmother).

An outstanding tour that showed us so much of Montreal that we would have not otherwise seen—both past and present. Our guide Fabia was full of information and even had old photos for us to look at as she told us fascinating facts about various buildings and their histories and the people behind them. Every one in our group, including our teenage daughter, found the tour very interesting and we are all so glad that we got to take this tour. We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Montreal!

I've spent years visiting the Plateau and Mile End, and walked the neighbourhoods covered by this tour dozes of times. This tour changed the way I'll forever see them. Much of what many of us love about these neighbourhoods has been deeply influenced by their former Jewish residents - the rabbis, writers and radicals, and the tour brought this rich history to life - from Mordechai Richler's high school to former synagogues that are now a Pentecostal church and part of a high school.
It was our guide Simone's first tour - and since it was already great, those taking it later this summer are in for even more of a treat. She's the real deal - a third gen. Montrealer Jew with roots in the neighbourhood, a history student at McGill, and she told stories and paced the tour with panache. Mazal tov!

The guide was well prepared and knowledgeable. The subject matter was very interesting, a history of Jewish people in Montreal including waves of immigration, living in Montreal, cultural inclusion and separation in Catholic and Protestant divided Montreal.

Our very well informed tour guide who was a postgraduate history major from McGill took us on a 2 hour tour from the Jewish Museum. She covered the history of the community; waves of immigration; key buildings and individuals. An excellent way to spend a couple of hours.
