Notre guide Danny connaissait bien son produit et rendait la visite interactive avec le groupe.

The guide was passionate about street art and made us understand that Montreal is a big destination in the world for that.

Good job and i recommend this tour to every one......even locals like us as we felt like we were in another town on vacation.

The knowledge of the tour guide was phenomenal. She was an amazing source of information regarding the area, the festival and its history, and the artists. She introduced The group to various kinds of Street art as well as the amazing murals which are a great addition to the city. I would recommend this tour to anyone visitor or resident

This walking tour was top notch! Our guide, Daniel, was knowledgeable, friendly, and appropriately funny! Daniel clearly has a passion for Mural Art and the artists who create them. He was respectful of all the works that we saw, shared interesting anecdotes about the artists and answered many questions posed by our group. I would highly recommend this tour!

The mural tour was a wonderful and unique experience. Marie was an excellent guide and we learned a lot about the art of graffiti and the high value Montreal places on the arts. Highly recommend this tour.

We took this tour on our first day in Montreal, wanting a non-traditional tour to learn about Montreal. It was phenomenal. We experienced a unique view of the spirit of the city. The tour guide was knowledgable and listened to all questions. He went out of his way to ensure that everyone in the group felt welcome. Can't say enough about how much we learned; would go on another tour with this company in a heartbeat.

The whole tour was just fantastic. The guide has an enormous knowledge about mural art, graffiti and also the artists.

I highly recommend tours by Spade & Palacio. The guides are so much welcoming and competent. The tours done are in small groups and very personal. They are also not typically touristic and that characterises them. And you get to know a lot about Montreal!

This is the perfect pandemic (and non pandemic) activity ! It's safe (distanced and with masks), and it's a really fun way to discover something in times where it feels like there's nothing to do.
I've been living in this neighbourhood for 3 years, and yet the tour was so good that I discovered new murals or learnt the story behind those I pass every week.
I really recommend it, both for visitors and locals !

Great to have you leave this feedback. Much appreciated, the mural tour is such a pleasure to give to locals as it’s a joy to be able to reference other parts of the city with those in the know. Thanks for joining!

I learned more about mural art than I ever believed I would - our guide was incredibly knowledgable, read the group well, and provided so much opportunity to really experience this complex art form. This is the best walking tour I've taken anywhere. I am waiting for friends to visit so that I can go on it again. It is worth every penny - do it and keep this tour going.

Hi! Thanks for sharing this. During the pandemic this was the one route we kept on running (all outdoors) because it was as impressive to guests as it was to locals. It also made us realize how much all of our routes were exactly that special. Can't wait for those other routes to start opening up again and to host you once more differently. We appreciate your kind words. Thanks!

I originally signed up for the Beyond the Basilica tour but was bumped to a different tour at a different time just a day beforehand without any sort of proactive communication beforehand. I needed to reach out to find out what'd happened, and while they offered to reschedule I was leaving before the next available date.

The first half of the tour was wonderful, our guide was able to show us a ton of awesome art and provided tons of super interesting backstory. The second half of our route was less impressive visually, but still managed to provide a ton of intriguing cultural knowledge that I wouldn't have walked away with otherwise.

Heya! Happy you enjoyed the outing. Sometimes during the slow season we have to join our guests to form a solid outing. Of course, as in your case, we notify guests, offer them the option to do so or reimburse 24 hours beforehand. Also as in your case we reimbursed the difference between the two outings. If there was anything else possible to do, would have been done and terribly sorry to hear you felt shortchanged. It means a ton that you share your positive tour experience, hope we get to wow you again on the original route. Hit us up by email so we can take care of you!

I went right before the quarantine crisis started to be taken very seriously, and this was the one absolute thing I wanted to do while I was in the Montreal... and it was so worth it. Seeing such spectacular art that combines classical with the 21st century makes me happy to see that great art doesn't have to be locked in a museum, but can be enjoyed by the entire public. For anyone wanting a local artistic view of the city, go on this tour, and I'd recommend coming in June when you can see the artists at work.

Hiya! Thanks for joining us that day. We've just started back with the mural and street art tours, the first since that last experience with your group in March. It was a pleasure to host you all. Hope we can catch you sooner than later :)
