Everything was excellent-...
Michelle_D, Mar 2023
Everything was excellent- guide, food, portions, options, walk. So glad we did this tour while in Montreal.
We saw and ate at places we would have never found on our own
Lance, Mar 2023
A different part of Montreal, great to experience more than the usual "tourist stops:. The food was interesting, with good stories to go along. It is exceedingly unlikely that we would have found the places we were taken to on our own, even with all the on line guides. And a treat to go with Simon, who loves the local food and was able to share his love with us. Expensive, yes, but worth it. . .
Delicious and Informative
Anonymous, Mar 2023
Eric was an amazing tour guide. Not only took us to delicious local restaurants but also shared detailed information about Montreal. His tour was the highlight of our trip! We highly recommend this tour as a way to learn more about the people of Montreal and their beautiful city!
Foodie feast
Rossana_J, Mar 2023
Eric engaged all of us in conversation. I knew he was a good person because of his firm handshake and eye contact. My favorite savory dish was the gnocchi with tomato sauce and the freshly made cannolis.
Fantastic food tour!
Sallie_S, Mar 2023
Great food tour! My daughter and I really enjoyed this tour. Eric was a wonderful guide- super friendly and knowledgeable. The food was all delicious, especially the cannolis (we recommend pistachio and Limoncello). We also enjoyed walking through the Mile End neighborhood. Highly recommend!!
Got the most out of our one day in Montreal!
Suzanne_T, Mar 2023
We only had a short time to look around Montreal, and spending it with Simon was the best choice we could have made. We covered so many topics, the mind reels: Montreal food; Montreal history; Montreal swearing; wrestling; movie extras; video games... there were more but you get the idea. This was no ordinary tour! Simon is a font of knowledge with a wealth of experiences (for a young guy!), and I kind of want to book this tour in a year and see what he's up to now. It wasn't too much walking, or too much eating, and we learned how to order Montreal bagels like a local. Stellar experiences.
Margaret_D, Mar 2023
Missed tour. Nobody rang to check. tho I contacted tour day b4. They should have easy contact phone number.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hello, thank you for your feedback. Please note that our guide waited for you at the meeting location. He promptly told us you were missing and provided his phone number so you could reach him if you were late or wished to meet at one of our locations along the tour. Our support team conveyed all this information to you. There must have been some miscommunication, as you stated that you gave up and went elsewhere. When we tried to reach you again, asking if you couldn't find the meeting spot, you didn't answer. We did everything within our reach to contact you. And we are sorry you were unable to join the tour. You can always contact us through and please do so that we can discuss this matter privately. We would love to have you back in one of our 60+ Secret Food Tours worldwide. Thank you

A must do in Montréal
Emily_C, Feb 2023
A must do tour when in Montréal, we enjoyed the tour leader Eric - he shared his favorite spots and many facts of the city! Don’t eat before you go, you will be stuffed! Fabulous experience!
Have a blast with Donna-Lynn!
Nicole_F, Feb 2023
My husband and I met DONNA-LYNN for the private food tour. It’s was so much fun. Not only is she knowledgeable but so personable. Don’t hesitate to book this tour. We did it in the middle of winter in the snow and it was so worth it. My husband loved the bagels and I loved the galette.

Rachel_S, Feb 2023
We ended up getting a private tour with Eric! He was fantastic! He was a retired professor and gave an incredibly fascinating tour! He was very informative on the history and the city. He gave us restaraunt suggestions around our hotel and gave us tips for the rest of our trip. All the food we tried was delicious. My husband and I picked the gnocchi as our all time favorite. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Montreal!
Perfect Way To Spend An Afternoon

A Beautiful Delicious Tour
Manavi_T, Jan 2023
Our experience was amazing. This was our first ever trip to Montreal. We booked this tour thinking we would be doing it with a bunch of people but to our surprise it was a private tour. 😍 It was so beautiful to see Montreal through the eyes of a local that too a retired professor finding a new passion in his second innings Prof. Eric. He was amazing not only he took us on this delicious journey but also provided us with so much information about Montreal. And not to forget the special treatment skipping the line of delicious food. Honestly, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and also company of Prof. Eric. He is just amazing. We were so stuffed by the end of the tour and had so much leftovers. I would definitely recommend it to everyone. You definitely should give it a try if you’re interested in Food.

Charlene_B, Jan 2023
The host Eric was the BEST!!!! His 'Montreal Jeopardy' trivia game got everyone relaxed while learning fun facts about Montreal was so much fun. The food on the tour was exceptionally good with a lot of variety. We all agreed that the tour was the highlight of our trip!!
Fun winter tour in Mile End
James_G, Jan 2023
The whole tour was fun and informative. Highlights were St. Viateur bagels, microbrewery, and the coffee and cannoli. Eric was also a good guide, knowledgeable and fun.
Unique & fun food tour
Julia_J, Jan 2023
Eric was a great tour guide. We started off by getting to know one another and then headed out for our tastings. This tour is a great way to get acquainted with the food of Montreal from a local’s perspective. As a vegetarian I was still able to fully participate!
