Overview
Discover the flavors of l'île d’Orléans (Island of Orleans), located in the Saint Lawrence River east of downtown Quebec City. Your guide will pick you up in downtown Quebec at Place d'Arme, located next to the Château Frontenac. During your 3-hour guided tour, you'll visit a vineyard, meet the producers and taste cassis (blackcurrant liqueur), cider, maple sugar, and visit a chocolate factory. Discover the specialty drinks and foods of the region and learn about the history and early settlement of the Island of Orleans. Bilingual Tour, English and French

Highlights
  • Try a variety of Quebecois specialties over the course of the tour
  • Guide provides context through anecdotes about the island’s history
  • Enjoy ice cider, wine, and blackcurrant cassis without driving worries
  • Try chocolate and learn about the production of maple syrup
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.
