About Spade & Palacio Non-Touristy Tours
Spade & Palacio is a collaboration of two born and raised, young Montrealers who are passionate about our city and love to show it. We originally met during our guiding classes and bonded over a shared interest and intention of having our visitors walk away with a day in the life of a local experience. Three years later we decided to take matters into our own hands and the company was born. It’s simple; we take our guests away from the mains, our tours are non-touristy. We want to showcase unknown parts while promoting local, young and women entrepreneurs on our walking food tours and your local guide’s favorite parts of town on our bike tours. Unlike other companies, we guarantee intimate groups of 10 or less. We hire only local and licensed fun guides. You aren’t sheep we herd around town, you’re our guests and we keep it human scale, authentic and real.

This was one of our favorite tours in Montreal- our guide was informed and we learned a lot about street art/graffiti and it was an interesting glimpse into this culture which is celebrated - the next day we took a bike ride and were recognizing tags all over the city! (Konek) Very worthwhile tour.

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.

Response from spadep, Owner at Spade & Palacio Non-Touristy Tours
Responded Aug. 11, 2021
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!
