Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Activities for older children, Bathroom facilities, Stairs / lift, Food available for purchase

This was a wonderful tour. Tom was Very professional and fun. We had a great group and the guide was very knowledgeable about the area and culture. We had seven stops for food and wine/beer tastings culminating with a great fried chicken picnic in a park. We have been to Montreal many times (live in USA) and I discovered parts of the city that I never knew existed. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour of the market-place. Tip…don’t eat breakfast before this tour and plan for a late dinner afterwards, you will experience many food tastings. Would have liked to have more time in the open air market to shop, fifteen minutes was not enough, suggest a half-hour
