From beginning to end, this trip was great and well worth the money. Our tour guide Roch was very informative and friendly. The bus driver Richard was friendly, drove safely and kept us on schedule. Quebec City is filled with old world European charm. The three hours of free time is just enough to walk around at our own pace and get something to eat. Great place to visit.

Great day trip from Montreal to Quebec City. Very easy to sign up and they come pick up at the hotels, I went from Old Montreal. Quebec City is charming and the guide was excellent. I did the boat cruise which was about 90 minutes, it was decent but if I did it again, I would skip the boat and just have the extra time to walk around because there was so much to see,

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 trip, coach driver and tour guide were great and absolutely loved Quebec, one day wasn't enough

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

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.
