About
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.
Montreal, Quebec, Canada

The art tour was fun! Learned a lot that will inform how I look at murals and graffiti going forward. The walk was easy, not at all strenuous, and our guide was great. Would definitely recommend!

My daughter and I were lucky enough to catch one of these mural tours during Montreal’s Mural Festival last June and the experience has stuck with me. We learned a lot about the city’s forward-thinking support for public art, etiquette for graffiti tagging, as well as the art itself. There are many reasons why Montréal is a world-class city but it’s public art tops the list for me. This tour will connect you to this place in ways you had not imaged. The guides were thoughtful, cool and a font of useful insight. I highly recommend.

Rod was our guide and he did a fantastic job. I am living in Montréal and I discovered things on the tour I didn't know existed! I would recommend this tour for anyone! There was a good mixture of tasty bites (an opportunity to sample different things on offer at the market) and generous servings. Am booking my next tour!

Our tour guide Rodrigo was exceptional for the Beyond the Market tour. We really enjoyed the different tastings we did including the ice cream and the final surprise tasting!

We explored a new part of Montreal we may have otherwise not gone to on our quick trip to Montreal. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to explore the markets and learn about the areas of Montreal.

This walking tour was excellent! Our guide, Rodrigo was a wealth of information and fun. We had a few local food treats along the way - best dumplings in Chinatown! Highly recommend!

I loved this tour! As a Montrealer, I was reminded of the great neighborhoods we have in the city that most of us don't visit often enough. I love the village vibe on St. Laurent. But love the little side streets and alley ways, lots to see and discover which I may not have seen on my own. The tour gave the participants the opportunity to experience a part of Montreal's history, art scene and the diversity of the city. And Gabriella was a fantastic guide, so knowledgeable about everything. We also met a great group of fun ladies from the US and Australia. This tour is definitely worth taking.

Absolutely wonderful! Engaging and so well put together. The guide was super knowledgeable and friendly, and kept the attention of our school group even in the cold and rain!
