Whilst the commentary was good the tour did not even last an hour! Started at 11.00am (not 10.30 am as advised) and we were back at the starting point by 11.50am.

Had a great time at the Gatineau Park. Our driver for the trolley was great as well. The colors - were our main point and they were spectacular. A really must see in the Fall..

Beautiful day taken by trolley bus with very imformative quide and great driver who assisted when needed. Weekend day so park was very busy but allowed into car park to drop off passengers as close to entrance of McKenzie King property as possible. 1 1/2hrs allowed at property wasn't enough time on a beautiful day if you wanted to photograph the 'ruins', walk around part of the estate and get refreshment even at the BBQ stand. Unfortunately bus broke down and an hour wait for replacement.
Colours in the Park were beautiful and the look out over the peninsula stunning well worth visiting.

The tour itself was great. Nice bus driver. Informative guide. Information on the website was incorrect and when a phone call was made to confirm our seats the woman with the tour operator was rude and unhelpful. I asked that she repeat the names of the 4 people I had purchased tickets for and she wasted my time by putting me on hold before the line was disconnected.

This was a great trip and the guide/driver was also great. The foliage was beautiful and the guide was very informative. Would highly recommend it!

It was rainy and the trees were not as advanced as they normally would have been, but the trip itself was fine.
