The tour guide was knowledgeable but there was less food than we have had on any other food tour, and the first bite was an hour after the tour started. While we had samples of five foods, there were some glaring omissions of Montreal staples...More
Caroline was an awesome tour guide. She really has a lot of historical information and insight to share, but not in an overwhelming way. The food was excellent and the sights were great too. We stopped at an authentic French place to start and had...More
Our guide (Ronald) made an excellent presentation of Old Montreal's greatest hits and had a lot to offer on both past and present food scenes. A very gentle walking pace and a few representative food samples- but more information than food. This is an excellent...More

Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with
sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
