Québec City’s modern cuisine is influenced by its traditional French roots and features rich, flavorful dishes created from humble ingredients. On this memorable culinary walking tour, you’ll taste some of the finest flavors this charming city has to offer and explore some of its historic neighborhoods. At each stop on your journey, you’ll try local food delicacies, some of them perfectly paired with wine or spirits.

Meet your guide at the pier and set off on foot towards Old Québec -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is the only walled city north of Mexico. As you pass through the Quartier Petit Champlain, you’ll see why Food & Wine calls this neighborhood 'an unmissable quarter'. Take in the cobblestone streets, stone building façades and pretty flower baskets.

The Petite Cabane à Sucre (Little Sugar Shack) is a classic Quebecois experience that’s not to be missed. As you might guess, this is a small cabin where sugar-maple tree (Acer saccharum) sap is collected and turned into maple syrup and other sweet treats. Most sugar shacks are set in the countryside, but this one is right in the heart of the city on Rue de Petit-Champlain. Savor all the delicious uses of maple sugar, from syrup to taffy and candy.

Le Quai 19 is an atmospheric restaurant with stone walls, an open kitchen and a market-based seasonal menu created by the hands of celebrity chef Dominic Jacques. Sample tasty bites here, such as salmon tataki and arancini.

At Le Côtes à Côtes Resto-Grill, feast on duck drumsticks and poutine (a decadent dish of French fries with various toppings) paired with local beer.

Then, head to Cidrérie Pedneault to taste marvelous iced cider. The homegrown flavor is for real, as the cider is made from apples that ripen on trees planted in 1918 on the ancestral land owned by the Pedneault family.

You’ll also wander through the Marché du Vieux-Port -- the city’s wonderful farmers' market, where vendors come from all over Québec to sell cheese, sausage, strawberries and other delectable farm-to-market treats.

Throughout the day, your knowledgeable guide offers fascinating facts and culinary insights, allowing you to discover Quebec City through its sublime food.
