What people are saying about Quebec City

I definitely recommend this! I did this with my husband and our two children, aged 12 and 14. We loved it! Such a fun way to explore the island. Now our kids are begging for e-bikes! The company gave us great information at the start, then we went off on our own to explore. Don’t eat a meal before you go… there is great food along the way.

Good bikes, the staff working the bike rentals are very knowledgeable about the area. Getting there and back to Quebec City is a challenge without a car but the staff was very helpful in getting us a ride back to the city.

Great taste of L’Orleans, we enjoyed it so much that we came back the day after on our own tour. But it was very convenient to go on this tour.

We really recommend this wine tour. We went to different ones but this was amazing. Nice Island, nice people and amazing tastings.

Great to get you oriented around for the city. Chantelle our guide was super knowledgeable, with a fun and warm welcome
