The trip was relaxing and informative. The boat wasn't filled to capacity so we had many choices of where to sit.

Tour guide was thorough in his presentation.... Although the scheduled tour time changed from 11:00 to 2:00, the wait was worth it.

I did 3 tours, all were excellent- Bus drivers fr om Coach Canada were very nice and the guides were great

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2011

Our guide was at a disadvantage as he had to conduct the tour in English and French which makes for a somewhat disjointed presentation. But he was very good, knowledgeable and entertaining. I thought he did an excellent job. My only problem was with the ignorant passengers in our group who continued to talk during his presentation and the drink waiter who conducted converstations with the passengers OUT LOUD while the guide was describing views and historical events. If I were the captain I would have made them walk the plank. Despite our ignorant cruisers the tour was worth it.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

Tour guide was great, very entertaining. Would have given 5 stars had the waitress ever asked if we wanted anything from the bar. she started going methodically table to table, but never seemed to reach an entire side of the boat wfich was far from full.
