Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Both our guide and our driver were very knowledgeable, interesting and funny, especially our driver but 3 hours are hardly enough to discover the city. People on the group were very punctual and that rendered the experience more positive.
I only regret that this one day tour took place on a rainy day but what can one do against the whims of mother nature!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Our full day's excursion from Montreal to Quebec City was truly outstanding. Norman, our driver/guide, was superb. His knowledge and personality really were impressive. The itinerary was excellent. Our local guide, Roger, was also easy to understand, knowledgeable, and passionate about Quebec City. We learned a lot about Canada's history and the special identity that Quebec has maintained. We enjoyed the boat ride and the visit of Montmorency Falls.
