Luis gave a phenomenal tour in 100+ degree weather. We enjoyed some spots so much (Lester’s and ice cream!) that we went back later in the week!

This is a terrific tour! Mélissa was a great guide and she knows her stuff. While the food we sampled ...and sampled ...and sampled was fantastic, the tour also included MUCH more with explorations and discussion of Montreal history, architecture, and demographics. We also had periodic poetry readings and topped it all off with a wonderful tour through historic synagogue! WELL DONE!!!!

Excellent tour. Daren our tour guide was great. He is very knowledgeable and informative. He made sure the people on our tour with food allergies still got to participate and he found something they could eat. Prepare to learn a lot of information as well as eat a lot of food. You will eat what amounts to two meals and get a delicious desert. You will go to 3 places that have smoke meats. They are all awesome. You will also get one of the best bagels you will ever have.

It was a very cold June day, but the tour was still worth it. We had an amazing guide and the owner made sure things were running smoothly in the background. I'd definitely do another tour.

Arrived at 10:50am for an 11:00am tour. Stayed until 11:20am. At the correct meeting point. Tour guide was a no show, so no tour.

Also, had wifi trouble when I paid, and was charged twice. I would think the local company would notice two payments for the exact tour under the same name. No contact about it at all.
