WHO WE ARE

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 both our walking food tours and our neighbourhood 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.

Over the years we’ve seen others try to imitate our style through their websites, routes and hoods they showcase. We think this means we’re doing something right.
