Celine was a wonderful guide and driver! We had a very small group aboard our bus so everyone felt as if they got individual attention. The spots we visited on the island were very nice. Tried some wonderful chocolate, ice cream, wines, preserves, and nougat. Celine even took a little detour and we spent a few moments at Montmorency Falls where she took photos of our group and individually! She was excellent! The tastings we had were delicious!

My husband and i were able to enjoy an intimate tour if the island with another couple. Jacque was a wealth of information and was fun

The one thing i might suggest is doing a more learning opportunity for the nougat and chocolate place like the vineyards

Wonderful 3 1/2 hour tour thru rural Island of Orleans, stopping at five local businesses that produce wines, jams and jellies, ciders and related products, chocolates, and nougat candies. Tour director Simon was friendly and knowledgeable and made the afternoon all the more pleasant. Would definitely recommend as an outing out of the city.

We were on a cruise from Montreal to New York City and came upon this tour when looking for things to do in Quebec. It was terrific. Our guide was very knowledgeable and knew the area well.

It's beautiful the Island of Orleans. I can see the beautiful sight, drink some wines. I recommend this if you don't have a car.

Let’s start with the fact that it was hotter in the bus with the “air conditioning” on than it was outside. I literally thought I was having heat stroke. The driver was nice and the island beautiful but the chosen stops questionable. The chocolate place was good but the tasting was 1 tiny piece of chocolate. Then a winery where you had to pay two dollars to taste the ice wine. Then a cider place which I skipped tasting because I felt so sick from the heat in the-bus. Bathrooms here were port a potties. Then on to a nugget place that gave you a taste of the most disgusting nugget ever, ugh. Than on to a blackberry, currants place that had tastings of crime de cassis. My friend went in the room three feet away to taste jellies and I stepped away from the bar for a minute only to have my glass taken away and the girl yelled at me that I should not have left. Really, who is the customer here ? Would anyone buy something if the sales people yell at you. I mean really horrible places! The island is beautiful and the farm stands looked wonderful although we never got to see them up close. This is one giant sales pitch at places you would not go, with the exception of the chocolate place. Drive yourself or hire a car but avoid this tour. Horrible 4 hours.

Our guide Jean-Christophe was really fun, and I enjoyed this tour. Personally I would have liked another winery over the Nougaterie stop, but in fairness, most seemed to enjoy it so I realize the goal is to have something for everyone.
