Food and history tour for up to 20 guests

Whether you are travelling with your significant other, your family or a group, I'm sure you wish for your Montreal experience to be memorable.
But one's must eat! Why not indulge in a foodie's tour that will have you discover what made Montreal famous, historically AND on a plate!
For three hours, we will roam in and around Old Montréal, and sample many confections deserving of our attention and devotion, and talk about today's most reputable eateries.

As a bonus, many anecdotes about local and international cuisine, recipes and suggestions for all epicurean travellers.

At this moment the tour is tailored for up to 10 guests.
If you have a larger group, we can certainly adapt!
I will customise a tour for your group, ajusting the price per person (40 $CA)

*** Our local food history is unfortunately neither vegetarian nor gluten free. Please let me know if you or someone in your party has these restrictions, so we can tailor something appropriate. ***


The itinerary is variable depending on how many guests in the group, food allergies and/or the weather.

* Place d'Armes
* St-Paul street
