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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

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.

Excellent! Nice bus driver, drove safely. The guide was excellent!! He told us so much, and I felt like I had learned a lot about Canada when I left. It was very informative and enjoyable. I would definitely do a tour through this company again.
