      Fantastic bus tour
      The bus was on time our tour guide Celine was fantastic and very knowledgable about the history of Quebec, the city tour was great and really showed us alot of the spots to revisit on our own. The Montmorency Falls portion was fantastic very beautiful well worth the price in my opinion.

      A beautiful day for a bus trip
      Celine was amazing! Exactly what you want a tour guide to be! Informative and engaging. The bus tour saves your feet but you still get an opportunity for photos and a small hike at the falls. So beautiful and well worth it!

      Not impressive
      The tour was o.k., but nothing to write home about. There were few stops for bathroom breaks and one stop as the driver had some business to attend to.

      Disappointing experience all around
      Tour guide was not in period dress and certainly did not bring history to life. She rambled on pointing out things like delivery drivers unloading their trucks, and school busses taking kids to school. We got back 45 minutes late because she altered the time at the waterfall and made a side trip to drop people off elsewhere. The windows were so fogged up we couldn't see anything. And 3 minutes reading on Wikipedia would have given us more insight into the history of the building and places we were supposed to be able to see. She tried to guild us into leaving positive reviews by telling us the company was owned by a young family with kids. I got a refund, and I would not recommend.

      Perfect tour to see the man sites!
      Celine was a wonderful tour guide! She was informative, funny, and made this tour a pleasure! The itinerary was perfect and we were glad we went! It also was great not being on a big bus as there were only 8 of us!

      Excellent experience on the l'Ile-d Orleans tasting tour!
      I took this tour as a solo traveler on holiday with the aim of exploring the island and doing some holiday shopping for friends and family. The tour did not disappoint! Our guide Seline was absolutely wonderful, and kept the tour moving while also encouraging us to explore and sample everything offered. The scenery was beautiful and each stop offered a unique, personal, and inspiring view of the island and culture. Loved every second and appreciated the professionalism and personal touches offered along the way. Thanks for a great experience!

      Good valued tour
      Good value and would recommend, especially if you want to see the Montmorency Falls which are outside the city. We were in Quebec on a cruise in October and booked this tour for a morning trip around the Old City and then out to the Montmorency Falls which is very picturesque. Good value of price paid versus what you get to see and very knowledgeable tour guide.

      Lovely time
      My husband and I had a wonderful time. Celine was our guide and she was informative and humorous. We actually left 10 minutes early because all the registered guests were on the bus, so be kind to your fellow travelers and follow directions to show up 15 minutes early- you may get to head out early like us or at least wait in the bus and be warm. Loved visiting the island and seeing areas around Quebec City.

      Celine was a wonderful tour guide. English and French, fun tour of the city! Bus was warm and clean, the sites and history were fun to see and learn about.

    Dan, our tour guide made this tour interesting by sharing lots of historical and geographical information in a fun way. He was very pleasant and friendly. He was a courteous and safe driver. Enjoyed the sights of the island and the 4 stops. The nougaterie was my least favorite. We watched a video and would have preferred a live demo, and the samples did not seem fresh, shop clerk did not seem interested. The shop clerks at the cider stop and wine stop were enthusiastic and welcoming. Would recommend the tour to see another area outside of Quebec City.

    This tour was a bit disappointing. It was a good way to check out a few things on the island if you don't have a car, but I was fairly disappointed with the tastings. The first 2 tastings are sweets, it was a little early in the morning to start there in my opinion. The chocolate factory was nice, but I didn't care for the nougat factory, they just had us watch a video about nougat making at that stop. The last 2 tastings were alcohol, a cidery and a winery. The cider here may not be what you're expecting if you've had cider in England or the US, it's more like a sweet ice wine than a beer. The winery was nice and the owner friendly but I didn't care for the wines. The tour operator was friendly and did seem to know a lot about the history of Quebec which is nice.

    I had an outstanding tour to the Island of Orleans! Our "Taste Trail" gave us delicious samples of chocolates, nougats, ciders and alcohol on small family businesses in the villages of Saint Pierre, Saint Famille and Saint Petronille. Our guide Celine went over and above her duty to give us interesting information, safe driving, and even help in connecting me to a historical society so I can further research my ancestors who lived on the island! I can highly recommend this company and high praise again for our guide and driver, Celine!

    Enjoyable and knowledgeable guide, good and safe driver. I didn’t realize quite what the tour involved but that’s on me. Two candy stops and two alcohol (1 cider and 1 wine) stop. Enjoyable but not the right tour if you are by looking for a wine tour.

    This was a lovely trip and Dan was a great tour guide. We were on a small bus with just 9 of us which was great! The island was overly to see with the snow! We especially enjoyed the chocolate sampling but the other stops were all nice too! It was a nice ride thru the countryside on the island!

    Me and my friend thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Peter the tour guide was informative and entertaining. The size of the group (c12) was perfect for visiting the food and drink locations and we all had plenty to try an each stop. I'd highly recommend this tour when visiting Quebec city - interesting to hear the history of the island and the scenery is beautiful.
