St.Anne Shrine, Montmorency Falls and Island of Orleans half-day private tour
We will start our journey heading to Ste. Anne Basilica and Shrine (30 min. drive). This magnificent work of architecture will surprise everyone, saint or not ;) A pilgrimage place popular (1 million people), reknown for miracles. Secrets in every corner in this Basilica.
Then, let's take the "King's road", historic road along the St. Lawrence river, first road to be built in New France. You'll get the "royal treatment" with this scenary of old houses, rootcellars. . . This road was officially designated as a main touristic road to discover in the province. We will stop for a tasting at a historic house, fresh home-made bread and maple butter, sooooo delicious!
We'll then tour the tip of Island of Orleans, the enchantress island, with its rural landscape and local products. You'll have the chance to taste wine /or chocolate. Touring the island is like a moment of peace in the countryside.
We'll stop at the Montmorency falls, 1 1/2 higher than Niagara.

We used Shadya for a private tour for six people. In addition to being very knowledgeable, she was easy going and flexible. We had to make several changes because of our ship docked later than usual and Shadya worked with us every step of the way. She also arranged for a fantastic van for our tour and catered to our needs every step of the way. Absolutely a 5 star experience!
