Tastings, basilica, Montmorency waterfalls and/or the South Shore with a private guide

Discover Quebec-City and its surroundings, with the typical French-Canadian countryside and more !

This tour is for groups between 7 and 13 people and includes a minibus with a driver. If your group is between 14 and 23 people and you don't have any transportation, please contact me for a customized tour.

Depending on your interests and the time we spend on each place, we have to choose from 2 to 4 of these 5 places for a 5h driving tour :
- Island of Orléans : tastings and countryside.
- St. Anne of Beaupré basilica : peaceful, impressive and interesting church.
- Canyon St. Anne : let's take a look at a wild canyon and its river (only in Summer and beginning of Fall).
- Montmorency Waterfalls : you'll be impressed, it's higher than Niagara falls.
- Quebec-City outside the walls : the opportunity to see some untouristic areas.

Of course I can adapt the tour to your needs and wishes as long as it's in the area of Quebec-City, Lévis or between Trois-Rivières and Rivière-du-Loup.


The itinerary depends on the time of the year, your interests, wishes, needs and what you already saw.

Even if I'm confident enough to adapt the itinerary during the tour, it would be better to check together what you would like to see. Due to the size of the group, we might need to book some places.

To give you an idea, most of the time we stay between Quebec-City and Ste Anne de Beaupré and see on the way the Island of Orléans and the Montmorency Waterfalls on the way. But we can extend it and go to the canyon St. Anne or even discover the surprising South Shore with the Chaudière waterfalls and Lévis.

Let's talk about it !

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 $CA - Most of the places accept credit cards and even US$ in cash.

It's hard to say now the right amount of the local payments. It depends on the number of tastings you would like to do and the sites we visit.

For example :
- cost of most of the tastings : 5$/pers.
- entrance fee for the waterfalls : 3$/pers. (minibus and bus only).
- St. Anne Basilica : free, but donations are welcome.
- Canyon St. Anne : 13,50$/pers.

What’s Extra

Other: - The products you'll buy.
- Tickets, tastings and entrance fees.

Why tickets, tastings and entrance fees aren't included ? Because it's a private tour ! Every driving tour is different : maybe you would like to taste more wine rather than go to the canyon and I don't want you pay for things you're not going to taste or see. Even during the tour you can change your minds and ask to skip one place to go to another.

A Recent Review of this tour

Xavier has exceeded our expectation in his knowledge of the city, his easy going personality, his enthusiasm and sense of humor. He was very accommodating to our interest and customized the 4 hour tour to meet our wishes. He is friendly, met us on time, and perfect in every way. All 8 of us have the same conclusion that we are very glad to have had this tour by him!
