Experience the local food of Quebec city while learning about its culture and history!


The journey will begin with an extensive city tour covering the heart of this UNESCO world heritage site, where you will be able to admire the iconic Chateau Frontenac and explore Place Royale, the cradle of French civilization in North America.

You will then be taken to the Isle of Orleans which Natives Americans inhabited long before Jacques Cartier set foot on it in 1535. Known as "the Enchantress", its rich soil has allowed the local producers to create unique tastes and you'll get the opportunity to sample some of them on the premises.

The next stop will take place at the Montmorency Falls, 1. 5 times higher than Niagara Falls, where you'll enjoy a panoramic view on the St. Lawrence River.

Itinerary

Our day is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and interests. The food tasting will be done according to your taste! Along the way we shall see:

The Old Quebec (walled city)
The National Assembly and Parliament hill
Battlefields Park and Citadel
Notre-Dame-de-Québec Basilica
And much more!

A gentle walk will also be made at Place Royale, the cradle of French civilisation in North America, in the heart of the old Lower Town along the St. Lawrence river-front.

The city tour will be followed by some sightseeing on the Isle of Orleans, known as the Enchantress, including one optional stop for lunch at a local restaurant such as an historical flour mill, a family owned bakery or an outstanding foodtruck (lunch is not included) and then for some sample tastings at family-owned producers according to your tastes!

A stop will also be made at waterfalls Montmorency to enjoy a breathtaking view on the city, river and island.

A Recent Review of this tour

Had an amazing food, culture and history tour of Quebec City and the surrounding area. Steeve took us to Ile D'Orleans for tastings and tours of some generational family business farms there. Steeve is very thorough, attentive and knowledgeable about the area. The next day I was driving to Montreal, but I forgot to ask the best scenic way to go at the end of our tour. He promptly answered a text we sent him the next day and gave us scenic drive instructions. He's a great tour guide!
