Very good guide - said his name is Roc? Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, straightforward. Covered all we need to know about Quebec City - and Province, and explained how best to arrange our limited time. Lunch at the Chateau Frontenac was superb. Will return to Quebec City.
Great experience for me and my family...Amazing places to see, very organized and fantastic driver/tourist guide as well. Next time, we will go back for a week one day is not enough to see part of Quebec. Lastly, the cruise is awesome! Thank you so much....
Great trip, coach driver and tour guide were great and absolutely loved Quebec, one day wasn't enough
The entire trip was wonderful. Our guide named Roch was simply the best. I was nervous about not being able to go on the River Cruise and was afraid that due to my error, I couldn't go. Roch was very reassuring that I could go on and personally walked me over to the cruise, explaining my error and I was able to cruise. His guidance in Quebec surely will cause me to return. As an educator in Pennsylvania, Roch was so correct in saying that we would learn more about this fantastic city than in a classroom. I also loved the way he used both English and French so clearly that after many years of not being a French language class, I totally understood his information even in French. He is a superstar!
Excellent day trip, we have enjoyed every minute.
The driver was very good. Our 3.5 hours free time was really enough to have lunch and explore the old city.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and history of Quebec and made the tour very interesting. It was a whirlwind tour, but having had to travel to and from Montreal there was not very much time to really enjoy all there was to offer in this city. I would probably stay in Quebec next time I visit Canada. Very fascinating city! I didn't care all that much for the river cruise but I know many people did. One last comment - when they say they are leaving at 5:00, you better believe the bus will pull out at 5:00. As we were walking toward the bus at 5:00, it pulled out and left us. The company was unable to contact the bus driver because he would not answer his phone while he was driving, which is a wonderful safety measure! But we managed to get back to Montreal no worse for the wear. If you do find yourself in that situation, make sure and call Orleans Express bus company to get back! But overall it was a very pleasant day and a good tour.
Great overview of the city for a day trip. Andre, our driver, was friends and provided good information on the way into Quebec from Montreal. He was also nice enough to drop us off at our hotels at the end of the day. Our local guide, Katia, was phenomenal - very in-depth information about the historical, artistic, and political aspects of the city, including the present.
The tour includes a walking tour in Quartier Petit Champlain, which is a beautiful old-style shopping area right by the iconic hotel shown in the ad picture. We also got to drive through other parts of the city and see different neighborhoods, piers, and parks on the bus.
The Montmorency Falls trip was nice, but I almost wish we had the extra time to explore another side of the city. Also, I would recommend not doing the river cruise - after returning from the falls and getting lunch, we had 2.5 hours to explore more of Petit Champlain quickly. The river cruise would probably preclude the chance for that.
The city itself definitely merits a return visit, but this was a good sampler plate of what it has to offer.
Fell in love with Quebec City thanks to this tour. The driver and guide were knowledgeable, informative and friendly.
Great trip, our only regret is that we wanted to spend more time there. We took the option boat
trip while in Quebec City, we would suggest that you pass on the boat has you did not see anything more that we heard on the bus ride to the Falls and the boat goes to the falls and back. There is no much to see within Quebec city. Will have to just go back later
Great day tour, I should have spent one night there, to see the city's night life.
Great introduction to the city and just the right amount of time to explore on our own.
A must go to trip when visiting Montreal... Our bus driver and tour guide were so informative..We had a great time!!
An extremely well organised tour. Tour guides and bus driver were great. Quebec was possibly the best place we visited in Canada.
Things were prompt and well run. I do wish we had seen the falls on the way into or the way out of Quebec and had one big block of free time instead of two blocks. But we did not take the cruise and that could have made a difference in our opinion. We were referred to you by a friend. it was worth the money. overall, an enjoyable day. the local guide was knowledgeable.
Totally worth it. We had the best driver very informative. Our tour guide she was so great.
Highly recomended. The old city is amazing. Is a little piece of Europe in America. The tour gives you plenty time to go over the city on your own after you get the overview of the city with the tour guide. I was a little dissapointed to see the falls from the top. The view is not as clear as to see it from the bottom.
The tour is well worth the 3 hr. one way bus ride. Tour agent was bi-lingual and very knowledgable.
