Quebec City and Montmorency Falls Day Trip from Montreal

Quebec City and Montmorency Falls Day Trip from Montreal

Get to know Québec City and its top attractions on this guided sightseeing tour from Montreal. The full-day adventure begins with hotel pickup in downtown Montreal. Climb aboard a comfortable motor coach and enjoy the 2.5-hour journey to Québec City, with commentary from your guide along the way.

Explore Old Québec, the historic heart of French Canada and the capital of the province of Québec, with its narrow streets, stone buildings and European feel. Learn about the city's history and culture while rolling past attractions like the Fortifications of Québec, Citadelle of Québec, Notre-Dame-des-Victoires Church and many more.

Visit Place Royale, often referred to as the birthplace of French America, and the beautiful Plains of Abraham, where the famous Battle of Québec between the French and English armies took place in the Seven Years’ War in 1759. Also, enjoy views of picturesque Place d'Armes and take photos of the towering Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, Canada’s most-beloved hotel.

Then follow Avenue Royale through the traditional villages and farms of the Beaupre Coast, approximately 15 minutes north of Québec City to visit Montmorency Falls, an 83-meter-high waterfall on the Montmorency River (it’s 30 meters higher than Niagara Falls).

After the tour, there will be ample time to explore Old Québec at leisure. If you're visiting between May and October, upgrade your ticket to include a 1.5-hour cruise along the St Lawrence River.

The tour ends with a return trip to Montreal and hotel drop-off.

It is very good for a single person coming to montreal for business and would like to take one day off. You do not have to drive so long, and one day is quite enough. The tour arrangement is very reasonable.

Excellent all-day tour. I got to see all of the sites that I wanted to. Very convenient pick-up and drop-off options.

Long bus ride from Montreal, but our tour guide, Roch, was entertaining and very informative about Canada and Quebec. Excellent ability to speak French and repeat in English, enabling most of our group to enjoy the trip. As for our bus driver, he was amazing to pilot the bus through town, during heavy traffic and have it appear easy. Will recommend to all at home to take this tour and any others like it while in Canada

It was a very pleasant trip. Timeline was great, we did not feel rushed, and the driver Andrew was very friendly. Our tour guide, Roch, was very knowledgeable and described and narrated things in a very interesting and passionate way. I recommend this day trip to anyone just wanting a birdseye experience of beautiful Old Quebec City!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Quebec City was very quaint. Many shopping and dinning opportunities. Would advise not to eat at Spag et Tini, as there are many more better choices in lower and upper city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

The time spent in Quebec City was wonderful. The guide Roch was excellent, switching between English and French very quickly and ensuring that everyone was fully informed. His tour of the upper city was very knowledgeable. The bus driver Richard was quite comical, although his attempts at humour were at times a bit of a stretch. The one suggestion that I would have is to give the bus xx901 a bit of an overhaul - our seat adjustments were not functioning properly and the seating was a bit cramped. I highly recommend the excursion itself.

It was a very enjoyable tour--on time, pleasant bus ride, interesting city with enough time to walk around on our own, a good guide, and reasonably priced.
