Beyond the Market – by Spade and Palacio

Over the years Montreal has held a reputation as a city that loves to eat, and eat well. A trip to the Jean-Talon Market helps the outsider grasp the fact that farm-to-table is nothing new in town. Together we will sample some tasty regional delicacies and meet the producers who take pride in the quality and distinction of their harvest.
Daily departures at 12:00pm (except Wednesdays)
 

Beyond the Bike Lanes (bike tour) – by Spade and Palacio

In the first half of our Montreal bike tour we show you some of our main interests; the majestic mountain park and an abundant amount of street art produced by our local and creative talent. We take you to the heart of the entertainment district and Montréal’s Gay Village, our gaybourhood.  After a lunch picnic and cheeky craft beer in the park follow your guide through the charming residential streets and back green alleys of the boroughs we call home. To understand Montréal is to understand our neighbourhoods with a local.  Our bicycles are made by a local bike shop giving new life to old frames by rebuilding them right here in the Mile End of Montréal. 
Daily departures at 12:00pm (except Wednesdays)
