Traveler Tips


This is a great way to get out of the city and really see the countryside (which is gorgeous).
While I recommend this tour, I would recommend that the cheese tasting be clarified or offered at another winery since the day is so long.
An excellent cold lunch was provided and there was no shortage of wine samplings on the tour.

Amazing time with tour guide Pierre...

Amazing time with tour guide Pierre! Incredibly informative about the history of Quebec and the wine of course. Great wine, food and laughs.
Guests Disappointed
Ellie_Q, Aug 2019
I am sorry to write this review but had to share. July 26 two of guests (2 sisters) were booked on this tour and ended up disappointed. There were no warnings to people with mobility issues. One of my guests can walk, but with difficulty and cannot stand. There were no chairs or stools to sit on, the wine was served standing. The second winery she was not able to navigate and had to sit on a bench along path in the hot sun. Further, they had to walk up hill to meet tour, which then took them back down. And lastly, although they were only promised a snack, they were served a thin piece of smoked salmon to share between ten people and nothing more. No snacks were available for purchase outside of the apple items. No pretzels, nuts, nothing. I obviously did not experience this first hand, however these are seasoned travelers and long time guests who have not complained in the past.
Response from Host, Aug 2019
Bonjour, I am sorry to hear that our tour did not meet the expectations of your guests. We invite our customers to inform us of any special requirement that they might need during their short trip with us. After reviewing our booking list, we were not aware that one guest had a mobility issue on July 26th, 2019. Moreover, I am extremely surprised by this review since chairs are always available at every location if someone requests one. Our tour guides are also very active at helping people with mobility issues. We work extremely hard to provide an experience as authentic as possible. We also do our best to anticipate and accommodate every customer with special requirements. A small food-pairing session is planned during the half-day tour. It is composed of artisanal products prepared by our partner. It includes smoked salmon, but also smoked pork and goat cheese. These three items are always served on the half-day tour. The idea is to create a mix of flavours with high-quality products during the wine tasting. Sincerely, Martin
Beautiful day

This excursion was a wonderful way to spend my birthday weekend in Montreal! My fiance and I had a great time. Thank you Kava tours!
It was okay.
Adejoke_A, Aug 2019
Great wine selections for both location. I went because my friends want to go. I am glad I ate a good brunch before the trip. The food pairing was just 3 finger tasting food. Goat cheese, pork and smoked salmon. The cheese was really good. Overall it was a good experience but I would have rather spend my time exploring Montreal. I met some amazing people as well.
All Day Wine Tasting Excursion
Lala_G, Sep 2019
Our all day wine tasting trip was amazing. Ken our host and driver was super knowledgeable not only about the 3 vineyards we visited, but also shared, rich information and stories about the history of Quebec. He was super friendly and accommodating, and took us to 3 world class, diverse vineyards that I would visit again. The wine and company was fabulous. Being the only singleton on the excursion, Ken made me feel right at home with the group. I would give him 6 stars if I could. :) Thanks Ken!
Response from Host, Sep 2019
Thank you for your kind words. We will share your review with Ken. :)
Small Group Wine Tour
James_H, Sep 2019
The group size of eight passengers made for a comfortable tour that allowed for a very personal experience. Two distinctly different wineries added to experience.

Small Group Quebec Wine Tour from Montreal
Martie_B, Sep 2019
We took the 1/2 day tour. Both wineries we visited were excellent. A wide selection to choose from at both establishments. Tour guide and winery owners provided excellent information.
A great day the vineyards :)
NIKITA N, May 2019
Great visit, pretty vineyards, amazing food. But expected more intense wine making techniques- more like how its made, hands on session, or taking us within the fields and doing a bit of a process then and there. Rest, overall was great, had a good time :)
Wine tour experience, not just an event.
Explore21138030400, Jul 2019
My fiancé and I loved the experience. Seeing a bigger side vineyard vs the smaller one was excellent. We were very impressed! Sabin (spellcheck) was engaging and a great photographer.
Delightful wines and a charming countryside
Leslie_t, Aug 2019
It was wonderful seeing the Quebec wine country and hearing firsthand from the winemakers about their experiences. The wines were fun!
An Afternoon Out in the Country
Kaysone_S, Jul 2019
Nice way to spend time with friends and get to know more about wines and ciders. Got to know new wine making processes and what does labour of love tasted like. Formidable!
Good wine and Tour Guide, but...
arudy2019, Nov 2019
We knew when we booked this that there was not a meal included. However, when we read “snacks,” we thought that there would be something more substantial (crackers, nuts, baguettes, etc.) than what was offered. The first place had yummy smoked meats and cheese, but very thin slivers. The second place had 2 tiny “breadsticks” (the dry, thin kind.) This is fine, but it should be made more clear in the advertising. The bottom line- eat well beforehand.
Great way to see the Quebec's vineyards
Wanderer67183691189, Jun 2019
Great tour. Started 12:45, half day tour. Friendly french swiss tour guide and driver. 2 of the vineyards visited were great. The 2nd one have cheese and meat tasting as well as wine. The cheese was great. I think it was goat's cheese. Lovely tour, especially on a summer day. You will have the opportunity to purchase the wine from both vineyards and the miniture ice wine was great.
A perfect way to spend a day
Steve_T, Jun 2019
We had a wonderful time learning about and sampling local Quebec wines. Michel was a fantastic tour leader! The wineries were small and friendly, and the wines were unique and quite good.
Great Day Out
Graham_P, Sep 2019
We were visiting Montreal and decided that this wine tour would be a great way to see the countryside of the area. The bus arrived on time and there were about 16 guests in all, mainly Canadians wanting to explore their wine region. The guide and driver, Sabin was absolutely first class and although most of the other guests were french speakers, he made sure we as English speakers were kept fully informed. the 3 visits to wineries we really interesting and quite different to one another. An excellent cold lunch was provided and there was no shortage of wine samplings on the tour. The tour lasted over 9 hours, so Sabin worked very hard as he was both driving and guiding.
Canada is beautiful and this tour did...
Cole, Oct 2018
Canada is beautiful and this tour did not shy away from showing us the beauty outside the city. The wineries selected for the tour were great and offered a variety of tastings. The owners were very information and provided lots of information about their wine and differences between wines from other countries. Our tour guide Pierre was excellent, well spoken, and very flexible with our group! However, you should be mindful that a cheese tasting that was explained in the description was part of the lunch. The lunch is very light salad, cheese, and meats and was not what was expected. While I recommend this tour, I would recommend that the cheese tasting be clarified or offered at another winery since the day is so long.
Depends what you are looking for
DayTrip27293080579, Sep 2019
We picked the half day tour option, we saw two wineries that were great. There was a lot of education (more than we expected or wanted). There wasn't time to sit and enjoy a glass of wine, the tour felt very rushed. This tour is targeted more for older people (we were a group of girls in our late 20s). The weather was great.
Lots To Learn About Canadian Wine Industry! - Who Knew?
Jeffry_g, Oct 2019
We went on the 1/2 day tour on 10/4/19 and really enjoyed it. The tour bus only held about 19 -20 people and was comfortable. Ken our driver was very knowledgeable about the area we were traveling through, the growing climate, the two vineyards we visited and the wines we tasted. He made the entire trip very interesting and educational. The people presenting at the vineyards were also very knowledgeable and welcoming. True to the other reviews, the snacks given were very limited, but being forewarned, we were prepared for that. We were there for the wine and the experience, not the food! Be warned, one of the vineyards has a very steep set of stairs to go down to view the vines up close, but you don't have to go down there to see the vines.All in all a great tour!
