The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

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. 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.

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.

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!

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.
