Amazing experience, our tour guide Fran was amazing. Fully bilingual and blended history throughout the tour which I really enjoyed since I went for only a few days. If you like food and want to get to know the city this is totally a must!

Fun walking tour in Old Montreal. Our guide, Vera Khouri, has a great sense of humour, and her knowledge of Montreal's history and food culture made this tour very enjoyable.

Hi Holly Belle, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback, we truly appreciate it! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our guide Françoise so much- she is indeed a gem. It is also true that some of the places we visit are on the smaller side. We choose our food tasting locations based on... More

Our tour guide, Christian, was full of personality, historical information and genuine warmth and enthusiasm. We were a group of 16; some Aussies, New Yorkers and Canadians. The food stops were informative, delicious and by the end, we felt we had had enough to eat. It was a 3 hour tour, but it didn't feel that long. There were enough... More

Took the Mile End Food tour during a long weekend anniversary trip to Montreal. It was the highlight of our weekend! Over six stops (spanning 3 hours), we learned so much about the history of Montreal, the vibe of this cool neighborhood, and the richness of its food culture. Caroline, our guide, was funny and warm and did a great... More

Well first off, our guide, Francois, was wonderful.....she was knowledgeable, friendly and very accommodating. The day was cold and rainy, but that's November! Our group also had 16, and we felt it was too many. 3 of the places we went to were so small, that we were very crowded, shoulder to shoulder. I actually felt bad for the patrons... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
