This was a great tour, and our guide was fantastic. The food, locations, and people were excellent. Absolutely worth the price!

Our guide Richard was a great guide. Not only did he know all about the products we were sampling he knew a lot about the history .He is a great ambassador for Quebec City food scene . We returned to a restaurant today for pea soup. We never would have tried this soup if not on the food tour and the new options it opened to us.

Our guide Marise was enthusiastic and knowledgeable - we enjoyed all although Gordon felt convent and guide there a ‘little longwinded’

Richard was a wonderful and informative tour guide who communicated his knowledge of Quebec with great friendliness and passion. The food tastings were fun (although we wanted some cake at La Busche after hearing all about it)! Would definitely recommend!

Our guide,m Clarisse, (worry if I spelled your name wrong) was incredibly knowledgeable regarding the history of Quebec. So we got a history lesson in a light and easy manner while enjoying our tastings. She even took the time to give us some suggestions for things to do and dinner after the tour was over. A delightful way to spend an afternoon

My husband and I took the Walking Food Tour during our April trip to Quebec City. Our tour guide was wonderful and so much fun! We went to very interesting places in and outside of the wall. Would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys food and learning about the city.

Richard was fantastic, interesting, funny, kind and took us to places that we would never have found otherwise. The personalized service from each foodie stop was a delight. We returned to one of the restaurants the next night. Highly recommend this.

Our group of eight loved everything about this small-group Quebec City food tour. Our guide, Jocelyne, was warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. She did a great job of keeping the pace relaxing while also keeping things moving so we weren't at one location for too long. One of our friends was pregnant and Jocelyne and the restaurants we visited were all so thoughtfully accommodating and made sure she had food and drinks she could enjoy as well. We really appreciated this! I would highly recommend this tour!

I enjoyed the information presented by the tour guide as much as the tastings. The tour took us to places we may have missed exploring on our own.

My husband, our two teen sons, and I really enjoyed this tour! Clarisse did an outstanding job of sharing history along the way of our seven food stops. The pace was great, and the variety of foods and beverages to taste helped us get to know this region. This tour was the highlight of our time in Old Quebec City.

This was the highlight of our trip! Clarise I hope I have that right was fantastic- hit just the right note, incorporating history of the area, some architectural insights, and conversation sprinkled with anecdotes and interesting stories. The seven restaurants/food providers were extremely gracious and delicious. Well worth the money and time!

What a great tour! We loved all of the tastings- our daughter was pregnant and they made her special tastings and non-alcoholic drinks. We even went back to 2 of the restaurants.
• Submitted 07 Jan 2018
If we could give this tour 6 stars, we would. Not only did the three of us sample delicious food from 8 different locations, but Dominico, our guide, introduced us to the people of Trastevere. Of the four stupendous tours we experienced with Viator, this one was our favorite.

Clarisse was an amazing guide on a well-designed tour of eating places and traditional Quebec cuisine items. Each stop nicely completed a part of the food spectrum from the obligatory and expected Poutine to farm-to-table wild game. Just a nibble and a small drink at most of the seven stops, so not a dinner replacement, but a very nice appetizer.

Neal gave us some excellent examples of local food-- I wish that we had done the tour earlier in the week so we could go back to some of the places we visited. There were only 4 of us, so we got lots of attention and were able to get in and out of the venues quickly and move on to the next stop.

This tour was wonderful! The food and drinks sampling was fun, tasty an interesting. We walked to areas of Quebec that we had not thought to go. Be sure to do this tour when in Quebec City.
• Submitted 04 Nov 2017
The guide was clever and provided just enough information about the city and the food. He was crystal clear about what the tour was and was not. It was a great experience and the tastes of Quebec were great!
• Submitted 20 Oct 2017
The food tour guide, Richard, wove in historical vignettes about Old Quebec. He took us to seven amazing stops that featured local and traditional restaurants and shops. He was so friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the places Richard introduced us to that we ended up eating and drinking at four of the same locations the next day - we were too full to try the last three. Thank you for the amazing historical lessons while on this absolutely delicious food tour.
