Overview

Taste your way across the Island of Orleans on this leisurely food and drink tour of the countryside. Rather than planning and navigating on your own, follow a guide to their selection of 5 local producers. As you sip wine and ice cider, your guide provides historical context that visitors often miss if exploring on their own.

What to Expect

After being picked up from near the Chateau Frontenac, take a short, scenic ride to the nearby Island of Orleans. Avoid the hassle of renting a car or planning a trip on your own—instead, relax and let the guide navigate for you.

Once on the island, visit 5 establishments where you sample a variety of Quebecois specialties, including handmade chocolate, ice cider, and cassis.

Stop at a vineyard for a wine tasting with views of the Beaupré coast, and then continue on to a sugar shack to learn about the production of maple syrup.

Your guide ensures you leave the island with proper historical context and an understanding of the region overlooked by many visitors. For your convenience, the trip ends back at the tourist information center, where staff are happy to provide further recommendations for your visit.

Ile de Orleans is a must see!

My daughter and I really enjoyed this tour. JC was a great tour guide and we enjoyed the places we visited. We are especially happy with this tour company accommodating my mistake of mixing the tour dates and getting us on another tour time.
