  • Tour begins at a bike shop that was only a few minutes' walk from the cruise ship terminal. Staff and guides were fully bilingual and very pleasant. Our group was approximately 15 with two guides. Bicycles were in good condition with handy front basket in which we found our sack lunch and a bottle holder for the complimentary water bottle. Except for a few stop light controlled intersections, the entire route is on dedicated bike paths.

    On our day there had been rain earlier but the weather was overcast and not too cold during the tour. It was just under one hour--with several rest stops at points of interest--each way to and from the falls. The lead guide was knowledgable about Quebec and personable.

    The stay at the falls lasts about an hour. It includes the gondola up to the bridge across the falls and a walk down numerous wooden steps on the far side. Or, if steps are not your thing, you can return on the gondola. Scenery and photo ops will be weather dependent both for sunlight and volume of water over the falls.

    We recommend this tour for all who enjoy biking.

  • We had a wonderful bike ride on a beautiful day. Our guide was great! He was warm and friendly and gave us lots of interesting information about the area and the plant life. I highly recommend this tour.

  • Bike riding was for the most part pretty level. Just small hills. Beautiful scenery and guide showed us many things and gave us ample time at the falls. Biking on return was much faster than to falls. A little harder for me, but doable. All in all a great trip!!

  • The bike tour left Quebec from near the Public Market and traveled along a system of bicycle trails for approximately 10 miles until we reached Montmorency Falls. We then took a cable car to the top of the falls, walked across a bridge over the falls then back down a series of stairs. The Falls are spectacular. We returned to Quebec along the trails we had come on. The guide paced the trip perfectly with times to discuss what we were seeing! Great excursion.

  • The lovely trip was made better by our guide, Guy. He was really knowledgeable of the local history, and also the local plants. I would recommend this trip to all my friends in the future.

  • The lady in the store gave me a sweater to borrow b/c it was colder than I expected. She saved me from shivering. Our guide was nice and thoughtful of others . He waited a few times for the slower folks to catch up. The falls was great. Nic pics. He even took a picture of me up there.The lunch was a bonus. I recommend them.

  • This was such a wellrun tour. From the bike fitting, to the bag of snacks and water to the guide full of information. It was an easy ride with several stops along the way so we could hear about local points of interest. The Falls are spectacular. Great day out

  • we loved our bike ride to MFalls --RAYMOND WAS GREAT! he was so knowledgeable about the area history, and EVERYTHING! super fun ride good bikes and nice lunch!! 5 star!

  • We had a really very nice, easy bike trip all bike path to Montmorency Falls. The suspension bridge and falls were fun! Our guide, Guy, was great: knowledgeable about both history and nature. The snack they provided hit the spot...and even included a gluten-free bar, which I personally appreciated! The bike company was organized, on time, supplied all you could need for this short half-day trip. Next time in Quebec City, we think we will take a different bike trip--with this same company, for another experience.

  • Great tour. Everything that we expected. Cycle shop was friendly and helpful, yummy snacks and our tour guide, Guy was terrific!
    And the falls are beautiful. Adding the zip line As an option to the tour would be fun!
