Winter tour of Island

Our guide, Celine, was very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. One of the tour stops became unavailable and she arranged to take us to another place to replace it. We had a very nice tour (10am on a Sunday) on a cold November morning. It’s a great way to get out of the city for a bit, get a view of the falls as well as the city and the St Lawrence! One thing worth mentioning is there is little to no food on the tour. A piece of chocolate and the opportunity to sample some jams, apple butters (no crackers) were the total food offerings on the day we went. However, lots of wine sampling’s including local vineyard and ice wines which made up for little food!

Celine was an amazing host during the entire trip! The local producers were great and varied. My only feedback would be that the chocolate stop seemed a little lacking compared to the other producers offering (one small chocolate per person). Aside from that, we thoroughly enjoyed the overall experience and would gladly recommend it to our friends!

Island of Orleans Food and Drink Tour

Celine, our tour guide was very nice and interesting. This tour was not exactly what we thought it would be. The food was really just sampling very small samples of sweets. The wine tasting was really only tasting a few sips of a few wines from each winery. The last place that we visited was the best. The woman that did the tour was great with a wonderful personality. We tasted ice cider, apple butter and wines.

I tried the best hot chocolate ever! I will not able to drink regular hot chocolate anymore... I went to 2pm tour and it was more like 'dessert and drink tour ' than 'food and drink tour'. So I recommend you to eat at least light lunch before the tour. But all the places were great. The locals looked all happy and nice! :) Jeff, our tour guide, was amazing too. It was small group but everyone was smiling and laughing all the time. It was fun experience.
