    • Great tour - very long day but definitely worth the effort.

    • It was good experience with a grey line. Driver was exceptional, and tour guide fantastic storyteller! Thanks

    • Tour was a good one but with a few big negatives. In a foreign country, you cannot expect locals to speak English which is why we requested this for the tour, so it was disappointing our driver didn't. Also, the bus was very late picking us up and then dropped us off a few blocks away from the hotel

    • Picking us up at our hotel was a bonus and greatly appreciated. This was a wonderful way to experience Quebec and Montmorency Falls. The driver was most capable and gave some insight during the drive to Quebec, where we picked up our city guide. Seamlessly delivering in English and French, points of interest along our walking tour, she brought to life the English and French history of the area. She volunteered to take photos at the falls and pointed out recommendations for lunch and sweets for our free time. Totally comprehensive visit to this beautiful city.

    • The trip was excellent! The bus driver was very entertaining and knowledgeable. We opted out of the cruise in Quebec city, which gave us about 1 hour and 1/2 of free time to explore on our own. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

    • It was a great tour. We learned a lot from our local professional tour guide, Roger whos been doing this for a long time. He gave us a lot of information/insights and made it very interesting for us. Thanks to our driver Sergio who made our drive from Montréal to Quebec City safe and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this to anybody.

    • Ride was long from Montreal, and the scenery was not all that interesting. Quebec City, however, is steeped in history, so the trip was worthwhile. It's also quaint town. You do have time to explore the city on foot, since it's not that big. Montmorency Falls was a let-down, if you've ever experienced Niagara Falls.

    • Wonderful experience!

    • Be prepared to spend about 60 much of the time on the bus. The guide is very informative yet talks too much from time to time. 20 mins stay at the Montmorency Falls was definitely not enough time - only enough to take a few pictures. Really appreciated the 3 hours of free time walking around Old Quebec, Hotel Fairmount Frontenac, and eating some snacks.

    • Beautiful city of Quebec. Never expected to be this beautiful. We had a wonderful time. We took a day trip from Montreal booked through Viator The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Learned a lot of history of this town, which was super interesting. I highly recommend it!
