To mix the historical knowledge shared with a passionate guide, the quiet walking experience in old Quebec with the pleasure to discover several excellent restaurants at once, is really rewarding. Plus meeting new person and share that in a friendly atmosphere I crease the pleasure.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the tour. It exceeded our expectations in every way. Marie, our guide was so very pleased and well informed. At the end of the tour, not only were our palates satisfied, but we felt as though we were saying farewell to an old friend.

We had our tour on Nov. 26th and Denise was our guide. He was prompt, on schedule, and was the perfect ambassador for Quebec City. Each restaurant we stopped at was better than our expectations and delicious. We are hooked. It is likely we will return in future and will definitely book this tour again and not waste time searching other food tours. We hope Denise would be the guide once again.

Best Ever

My wife and I have traveled extensively & taken many side tours during our 50 years of marriage. However, the food tour of Old Quebec City was probably our "best ever". Our guide, Gabriella, was superb. It took us a little while to find one another because of the crowds, but eventually Gabriella was able to bring the 8 of us together. She kept us on schedule to visit a variety of places. First for hors D'oeuvres and a nice glass of wine. Next to an old factory converted to a hotel where we sampled a typical charcuterie platter of prepared meats, fresh bread and a variety of cheeses with both red & white wines. Later, on our 3rd stop, the piece de resistance, we were surprised to visit a restaurant called Le Continental, an exquisite place where we were treated to one of the "best ever" meals. Shrimp sauteed in a lobster bisque sauce with several other ingredients; alcohol was added, flambeed to perfection at the table & accompanied by a very light, crisp Pinot Grigio. Next to another popular restaurant for a dinner of wonderfully cooked Beef Bourguignon, mashed garlic potatoes and green beans. More excellent wine and still more. Finally, Café La Maison Smith St-Jean, known for great coffees, croissants and a wide variety of the local cookie specialty, MACAROONS. A perfect ending to a tour we will long remember. Don't miss it and make sure you ask for Gabriella as your guide.

Worth every penny!! My Husband & I are in our 50’s and we had our nephew and his girlfriend in their 20’s with us. Tour was about 3 hours with stops at 6 restaurants and a few more historical sights in both Upper and Lower Quebec. All of us loved Gabriella; she was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and just made our experience educational and fun. Food was mostly generous appetizer-size portions paired with wine. Waiters talked to group about the restaurant, the dish prepared and the wine. My husband is definitely a foodie and he enjoyed it! This tour is a great introduction to a variety of restaurants and food specialties in Quebec. Your are in a group of 10 people so easy to get to know everyone and for restaurants to accommodate group.

We took this tour on a recent visit to Quebec. A few days before we took the tour, our start time was changed from 1630 to 1600 but the company did an excellent job communicating our new time to us. The tour itself was superb. Our guide, Estelle, did a great job explaining the history of Quebec City and the relevance of each site we visited. The food...definitely come with an appetite! Food was 5 star quality at each of the 5 restaurants we visited. Wines were good to great too! This is a fantastic 2.5 hr tour that, if you can arrange it, serves as a great introduction to Quebec City. At the end of the trip, Estelle offered some great recommendations on how to further enjoy your visit to the area. This tour way exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended!

We were a group of ten friends and this event was one of the highlights of our weekend. The restaurant and food selection was excellent. Moving from one restaurant to the next was seamless, with the next table ready and waiting. Francoise was a superb guide, very knowledgeable and funny. Thank you for a great time!

I’ve never taken a food tour before, and this one sets the bar high! Five wonderful restaurants, all very different. Lots of food and good wine to pair. Lynn was an excellent host and guide... she was not rushed, and loves her city, and it shows in how she spoke of several of the historic sites she showed us! Do not be afraid to book this tour, it’s excellent!
