Our guide, Luc, was knowledgeable and engaging, and the drive around the island was lovely. The winery in particular has a gorgeous outdoor seating area. There was a good variety of stops and ample time at each. Food samples could have been a bit larger, you literally get one small bite, but since we had read other reviews we knew to expect that. Food was available for purchase at the winery if you get hungry.

This was a great introduction to the Isle! The driver was very informative and engaging. It made me wish for a more extensive tour.. I do wish, given it was strawberry season and the berries are famous, that a stop for those would have been great. Also add the apple pie, even if it’s an option to purchase at the location.

Pick-up and drop-off from same location in old Quebec. Tour guide was nice and knowledgeable, and delivered the information in both English and French. Reasonable number of guests per tour (we had 22). Tour was not quite as described as description lists 5 stops but we only did 4 (5th stop to Tigidou jam makers did not occur, which was disappointing). Transportation via mini-bus, which did have air conditioning, but it was not great and still pretty warm. There was a tight timeline and we had 15-30 minutes per stop, which was quick but sufficient. There were washrooms available at each stop. It really just is a tasting tour where you get a small sample per stop, with the opportunity to buy products to take home with you. I enjoyed seeing the island and being able to learn from their locals, including our guide who lived on the island. The ice cream dipped in chocolate was my favourite!
