Nothing Special
Patrick_B, Jul 2022
We took food and history tour for three hours that was billed with gourmet food stops. Each stop had a drink and a food dish. My issue was the food that was given to us was ordinary. With such diversity of food that you have here in Quebec it was a letdown to have the best thing for the evening as fried mozzarella. We were each given a little wine. What I mean by little wine was one bottle of wine divided by the number of people in the group, we had nine in our group. So it ended up being less than a half a glass of wine At each stop. At the high-end stop there was flambéed shrimp which people liked. Unfortunately I do not eat seafood therefore I opted out of the shrimp. In it’s replacement I received fried mozzarella and Caesar salad with bacon. That was the highlight of the evening. The last restaurant was the entrée which I thought would be some kind of flavorful protein or wild game that they have so plentiful in the area, it was not. It was mushroom risotto that I could’ve made at home. Our tour guide Lynn did a great job explaining the area history and giving us real background of how things happened from the start of Quebec. Without Lynn this tour would have been very underwhelming.
Very pleasant evening
Douglas_S, Jul 2022
La Place Royale and the beauty of the old city were highlights. Food was excellent at all the restaurants.
Great way to see the city and explore restaurant options
Kimberly_J, Jul 2022
A small group tour with guide Lynne was very enjoyable and showed us parts of the city we hadn’t seen yet. The food and wine were excellent.
Great tour to take

Amy_P, Jul 2022
Our tour guide was the best part of the tour. Apart from one restaurant, the food choices were subpar and there were barely any historical sites visited. Not really the experience we were hoping for. Wish we could get our money back.

Some steps in Québec city, a giant leap in th knowledge of the History of Quebec...
Michel_V, May 2022
To mix the historical knowledge shared with a passionate guide, the quiet walking experience in old Quebec with the pleasure to discover several excellent restaurants at once, is really rewarding. Plus meeting new person and share that in a friendly atmosphere I crease the pleasure.

We took this walking food tour and was very impressed by Denis’ love for the city and its history. The food in each of the stops was top notch, and just enough over the course of the tour. Highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the tour. It exceeded our expectations in every way. Marie, our guide was so very pleased and well informed. At the end of the tour, not only were our palates satisfied, but we felt as though we were saying farewell to an old friend.
Exceeded our expectations for tour and gourmet food
Victor_L, Nov 2019
We had our tour on Nov. 26th and Denise was our guide. He was prompt, on schedule, and was the perfect ambassador for Quebec City. Each restaurant we stopped at was better than our expectations and delicious. We are hooked. It is likely we will return in future and will definitely book this tour again and not waste time searching other food tours. We hope Denise would be the guide once again.
Best Ever
William_B, Oct 2019
My wife and I have traveled extensively & taken many side tours during our 50 years of marriage. However, the food tour of Old Quebec City was probably our "best ever". Our guide, Gabriella, was superb. It took us a little while to find one another because of the crowds, but eventually Gabriella was able to bring the 8 of us together. She kept us on schedule to visit a variety of places. First for hors D'oeuvres and a nice glass of wine. Next to an old factory converted to a hotel where we sampled a typical charcuterie platter of prepared meats, fresh bread and a variety of cheeses with both red & white wines. Later, on our 3rd stop, the piece de resistance, we were surprised to visit a restaurant called Le Continental, an exquisite place where we were treated to one of the "best ever" meals. Shrimp sauteed in a lobster bisque sauce with several other ingredients; alcohol was added, flambeed to perfection at the table & accompanied by a very light, crisp Pinot Grigio. Next to another popular restaurant for a dinner of wonderfully cooked Beef Bourguignon, mashed garlic potatoes and green beans. More excellent wine and still more. Finally, Café La Maison Smith St-Jean, known for great coffees, croissants and a wide variety of the local cookie specialty, MACAROONS. A perfect ending to a tour we will long remember. Don't miss it and make sure you ask for Gabriella as your guide.
