      Private Montreal Multicultural History Tour

      Montreal, Quebec, Canada
      From (USD) $307 Per Guide (Maximum 6 Guests)
      • More than a guide: Even by GoBe standards, your tour leader is special. These “docents” (from the Latin for “teacher”) are Ph.D. and M.A. scholars who have spent years studying the city’s culture and history.
      • Your group, your tour: With no more than 6 people per tour, you’ll get personal attention from your docent and the opportunity to customize your tour length and route to your group’s passions.
      • Multicultural Montreal: From Jewish synagogues to the red and gold pagoda archway over Chinatown to the charming Portugal Park, many of the city’s neighborhoods have ethnic enclaves representing communities the world over.  
      About This Montreal Tour

      As a city in Canada founded by French traders, Montreal was destined to be diverse. But as you’ll find out during this immersive experience, the cultural influences on Quebec’s capital go far beyond Europe.

      Your journey begins in Chinatown. In the late 19th century, over 15,000 Chinese workers helped build the Canadian Pacific Railway. The ones who settled here in Montreal opened shops and restaurants, bringing culture to their new homes. Of particular note is the Wing Building, an 1862 commercial property that’s been a military school, warehouse, and factory but is now home to a fortune cookie manufacturer.

      Montreal’s Jewish community is another important thread in the fabric of its culture. Over 100,000 ethnic Jews live here, from places like Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Their influence is especially apparent in local food; you’ll walk down the famous Sherbrooke Street, where it’s easy to grab a classic Jewish dish like a bagel or smoked meat sandwich, the kind you might find in a New York City deli.

      You’ll see lots of other ethnic neighborhoods, including the Portuguese district, where modern immigrants continue to make their mark on Montreal. Like the world’s other great cities, this place was created by a distinct combination of cultural influences that’s easy to see on a casual stroll. Thanks to your knowledgeable, experienced docent, on this tour you’ll also understand it.
