If I could, I'll give more than 5 stars!
This tour was a gift for my best friend's Birthday and it was absolutely outstanding and way beyond anything I had expected! Melissa is an amazing guide and helped us discover many new locations which we would for sure enjoy many more times in the future. All the places we have visited were extraordinary and we really enjoyed learning about the story behind each location (even met with the owners). Melissa also taught us about Montreal's history in-between the locations we were visiting and the whole tour felt like a little adventure as we walked through areas we've never been before (we are from Montreal too).

The communication was super fast and the customer service was extremely good. We now plan on experiencing all of the remaining tours as Melissa's company was highly enjoyable and we can't wait to learn more about our city.

Thank you!

Thank you Ralitsa! I was nervous and excited because this was the first one since the pandemic and totally revamped. It was very smooth in the end and all places were top-notch. I’m glad I could have you as guests and spend a lovely afternoon with you. It was the perfect day! I hope to see you on more tours! Take care!

I took two college ladies with me on this tour. We started with an English tea place, then went to a Japanese tea place and finished at a Chinese tea store. We enjoyed it but felt it was too long. We ducked out after 3.5 hours had other things to do before we headed back to the US. Go with your friends or you might get stuck with strangers with whom you have nothing to talk about for a half a day. Also, be ready to get caffeinated. It was a bit overwhelming.

Melissa is a knowledgeable and engaging guide. The Afternoon Tea Tour was a highlight of my trip to Montreal. The stops on the tour were each unique and the shop/tea house owners of the establishments we visited were all very welcoming. You could tell that they all had great relationships with Melissa. There is a lot of walking on this tour, so just be prepared with comfy shoes. The beautiful part about walking is seeing a lot of Montreal close-up. Melissa had wonderful stories to share about various sights along the way. Loved this tour and will do another one next time I'm in Montreal.

Melissa is a wonderful host! Be prepared for lots of information, lots of tea, and lots of walking. If you are a tea lover, this is a great tour; if you are only mildly interested in tea, this could be too much information. It truly does take 4.5 hours, and all of it is used to explain verbally, and hands on, as well, just how to brew the perfect cup of tea. It's mostly green teas; and all the tastings are done sans sugar or milk. Eat something before starting because it does take quite some time before you eat anything...but when you do...it's amazing. The vegetable rice bowl at a tea house is fantastic. The ending location with high tea is fabulous. The kitchen makes everything from scratch. I wish an hour could be eliminated.

The guide was great. She was knowledgeable and entertaining. Between the expertise at each establishment and hers, I learned a lot. I went to places I would never have gone to, or even found. The bar was not open but we went to a very wonderful tea house instead. Sooo many teas were explained, tasted and purchased at each stop. Each stop was unique. Worth every penny. I hope to take another of her tours someday.

Boy, did this exceed every expectation! By chance, my husband surprised me for my 30th birthday by taking me to Montreal and booking this lovely tour.

Our amazing guide, Melissa infuses (pun intended) the simple pleasure of enjoying tea with a synoptic history along with her appreciation for the industry and Montreal is infectious.

At times, tours can lack personality or even feel you wanting more. You don't feel that way on this experience at all. In addition to visiting several tea establishments (both local and corporate), you really get a sense of how the tea world works and what it brings to the table.

Not only that, Melissa indirectly gives you a tour of Montreal, you'll enjoy tea variations and learn some history but you'll also learn about local life and all the delicious local fare that pairs beautifully with tea. Did I forget to mention, this is really a great move if you'd like to subside that cold wintery air!

Melissa provided us an amazing tour focused around the tea culture in Montreal and the history of tea and also a little bit of Montreal history as well. The stops on the tour were well thought out, all a little bit different and all top-notch. My boyfriend, who hates tours, really loved this one. There's lots of walking which wasn't a problem for us but good to be aware of.
We specifically loved the stops at Cha Do Raku and the Cardinal Team Room. By the way all of the vendors treated Melissa she is well respected in the community and welcomed everywhere.
If you're into tea or just wanting something new to learn about-- this is definitely for you. Can't recommend any higher!

This is my second tour with Melissa of Round Table Tours and I hope to go on many more!
She is an outstanding guide, with a great ability to create an engaging srory about a particular food and draw us in to the narrative.
Her tea tour is amazing. My family group ranged from my young adult nephew and his girlfriend to my 85 year old mother with dementia and every one of us had a fabulous time.
Melissa went out of her way to get answers to questions and make sure everyone enjoyed themselves.
I will absolutely be booking another tour with Melissa the next time I'm in Montreal.

Thank you so much Lisa! It is a treat having you and Edith and co every time! I hope to have you back many more times. You are by far one of the guests that eats up the content and has a deep appreciation of the people we meet along the tour and all that we taste and for the geeky info too! :) It was gratifying to do such contrasting tours for you and have you enjoy both. I look forward to next time and I promise that it will be wildly different from the first two! All the best until then!

We had an absolutely wonderful time learning and trying different teas and treats in the area. This was the most enriching experience we have had on a trip and we were so blessed to have Melissa leading the way. We were joined by one other couple which worked out quite nicely for all the stops we made to keep it an intimate and knowledge-filled tour.

Every stop was just wonderful. Walking and seeing the sites coupled with the amazing tea and treats could not be beat. We came home from our trip to Montreal with a new appreciation for Montreal, tea, and the whole entire world.

If you are on the fence, do it. This tour is not to be missed.

My daughter and I participated in the afternoon tea tour and we both loved it. We love tea to begin with and the tea tour gave us an opportunity to try different and specially curated teas. We learned a lot and we bought several teas to enjoy at home. Our group was great and the afternoon flew by. Thanks, Melissa, for a great time.
