Full description
After being collected from Place d'Arme at either 9:45AM or 1:45PM, you will travel towards the Island of Orléans to discover the flavors of the area. Located in the Saint Lawrence River, east of downtown Quebec City, you will take part in 5 different tastings at 5 different stops throughout your day. At each stop, you will be able to taste products and discover their stories. Your first stop is to the Chocolaterie Ste Petronille (producer of chocolates, truffles, jams, and ice-cream soaked in chocolate). Your second stop is the Nougaterie of St. Pierre (a producer of nougats and other sweets). Your third stop will be to the Cidrerie Bilodeau (a producer of cider, juice, and apple jelly), with your fourth stop being to the Vineyard of Mitan (a producer of white wines, red wines, and ice wines). Your final stop will be at Tigidou jam makers. Taste the creations cooked from fresh local seasonal berries, always original, natural, and 100% local. You will discover throughout your getaway the drink specialties and dishes of the region, and will also learn more about the history and the beginnings of the colonization in Île d'Orléans. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be taken back to Place d'Arme.

The Island of Orleans was absolutely beautiful! We traveled in October and the colours of autumn were out in full force! This was a perfect way to see some of the island and also taste some of its offerings. We encountered lovely people at each stop, and the tastings were fabulous - our 8-year-old son particularly enjoyed the chocolaterie and nougaterie. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. This was one of our favourite activities in Quebec!

We had an amazing trip and experience. The guide Antoine was very kind and recounts interesting moments in the history of Ile d'Orleans and Quebec City. we met artisans with exceptional products that cannot be found in any store. Homemade natural products. Thank you very much for these flavors!

Our guide Céline was dynamic and attentive, and what is not to be neglected, she showed us the location of the toilets at each stop!
