Gourmet Tours by TASTET x Montréal en Lumière 2020

2020 is fast approaching and the TASTET x Montréal en Lumière Gourmet Tours are back! 

Last year marked the beginning of our partnership with Montréal en Lumière, and we had so much fun hosting our Gourmet Tours of the city. This time around, Montreal gastronomy will be the star of the show at the Montréal en Lumière festival, so of course, the tours are coming back with a bang. 

Tune in to the press conference being held on December 3 to hear about all of the special surprises on the menu for this year’s festival. In the meantime, we are here to invite you to our new and improved Gourmet Tours of Montreal! 

For the 2020 edition of the tours, we have taken all of your feedback from last year into account and have prepared six new and exciting themes to help you discover the various pockets of fine gastronomy in this city. 

Here are the six themes for 2020’s TASTET x Montréal en Lumière Gourmet Tours :
