Quebec City’s culinary magic springs from a warm embrace of its historic attributes.
Old Quebec is a Unesco World Heritage site and Quebec City’s oldest and most European-like neighborhood; with this comes a range of flavors and unexpected fusions. With Cicerone Tours, groups can take a stroll through this area with a historical figure from New France, reliving 400 years of history bite-for-bite. Local Quebec City Food Tours takes groups into the heart of one the most diverse and vibrant neighborhoods, Saint-Roch, in search of hidden gems, brews and bites. And speaking of brews, Broue-Tours offers a fun and educational microbrew experience in Saint-Roch as well, complete with a brewhouse visit and nine tastings.
One of the most photographed hotels in the world, Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac has overlooked the St. Lawrence River and its famous Dufferin Terrace for more than a century. The 611-room hotel hosts meetings and events of 12 to 700, and also offers one of the largest varieties of top Quebec cheeses in Canada, sourced from its Cheese Room and coupled with classic cocktails. This happens in the 1608 Wine & Cheese Bar, which is positioned on the exact site where Quebec City was founded that same year. Also noteworthy is afternoon tea at Place Dufferin—a popular breakout spot with gourmet open sandwiches, scones served with Devonshire cream and homemade jams, and sweets by our pastry chefs—and Bistro Le Sam & Bar Atrium, whose windows frame some of the most iconic views of the St. Lawrence River. Of course, groups would be remiss not to embark on a guided tour of this hotel to discover the famous people and historical events that shaped its identity and helped to shape that of Quebec City as well.
