Melissa's Jewish food tour shined an intimate lens into Montreal's Jewish roots, cuisine and culture. She was so positive, well-informed and careful to choose the best eats in the city from the big name eateries to the small mom-and-pop shops in the Mile End/Plateau. Highly recommend!

What a great way to get a look at the Montreal Jewish community through food. Melissa was and excellent source of facts about the food we experience, the people running the establishments and the community. We met and learned about some of the personalities that are the character of this diverse area. Highly recommend this and make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes and stretchy pants.

This tour is fantastic and I highly recommend! Melissa's knowledge of the history of the area you will walk around was highly engaging. The food part of the tour exceeded our expectations and we left full. Everything and I do mean everything we ate tasted delicious. We genuinely had the best day yesterday. I mean food and local knowledge/ history lesson, what's not to love. Melissa truly is the Pied Piper of the best food, so we plan to book another one of her tours.

That’s so sweet! Thank you for taking the time to write about it and come out. You guys were a blast and I knew who was writing as soon as I saw brilliant. I’m still laughing about the comments about the Scottish in both directions. Welcome to Montreal. I look forward to seeing you on another eating extravaganza. I’ll have a hat with a feather, a tin whistle and a bag for leftovers!

This tour is worth every penny. Bring your most comfortable walking shoes, stretchy pants, and a big appetite! Not only was the food delicious but the history and stories that went with them were so interesting and enjoyable! Fantastic tour to wander from Outremont to Le Plateau and around the Mile End while learn how a mosaic of cultures has made Montréal the place it is now. I will definitely do this again, Melissa is amazing. You walk about 3 ish Km and it goes for 4 hours. I wouldn’t bring my toddler. Walk is on sidewalks so not hard but you still have to be able to walk for half a day.

I'm not sure who this is, but thank you so much for the review and warning people to be ready to eat and walk! It really is that. You will only do this tour once, so you may as well go all out and taste it all! It is an active tour even though you feel like you could roll home with the heavy eating! :) It really is worth it. It is a jam-packed content and history rich tour! You really get the full experience in 4 hours!

A great food tour, really worthwhile, you get more food than you can eat and a great variety of different menu items. Plus, you get a good solid history of the Jewish communities, their migration and locations in Montreal. Our tour guide really knew her stuff. One cavet, be sure and wear good walking shoes and be ready for a 3.5 km walk.

We had the best time on this tour! Melissa is a wonderful and knowledgeable host and has clearly researched both the history of Montreal and where to get the best eats. The abundance and quality of the food was amazing, my husband and I had to roll ourselves back to our hotel. This is a must-do on any trip to Montreal.

I registered and paid for 2 tours with this vendor and both were canceled by the vendor within 5 days of my trip. If this vendor can't run their tours they really need to stop advertising them. Nothing like planning your trip and then having it ruined because someone else can't provide the service they are advertising.

Hi! We're a small company and sometimes we can't offer every tour every day. We had other tours running on the days you were available and they were just inverted in date, but you were so angry and inflexible that we couldn't find a way to make it great for you. I hope next time you don't rely so heavily on a tour company to make or break your trip.

Best food tour in Montreal. Our guide Melissa, was amazing. Knowledgeable, professional and so personable. Unlike other food tours where many of the guides seemed less experienced and needed to use guide books for tour details. She knew the history of the Jewish neighborhood and was well acquainted with and welcomed by every eatery owner. Incredible value.

Frances, a native of one of this Jewish neighborhood, took us on a delightful and delicious tour yesterday. We even got to “taste off” the top bagels and the top smoked meats of Montreal. The four hour tour took us through a lovely Hasidic neighborhood where we got to see the residents at work and the kids at play. Frances gave us the inside scoop on all the famous buildings and and shared stories of some of the most famous residents. My husband found that the Special Wolinsky sandwich reminded him of his childhood. Melissa Simard, the owner of Round Table Tours was a delight to work with and helped us for months to obtain the reservations we wanted, Thanks, Melissa!l. We had enough food so that we did not need to have dinner. Some of our favorite dishes were the falafel, the Chocolate Babka, the Wolensky sandwich and the spectacular Montreal bagels that we liked more than the NewYork ones to which we are accustomed.
