Great tour! Bus driver was entertaining, local-walking-tour guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. Free time was the perfect length. Was able to see everything in a short period of time - worth every penny!
The tour was wonderful. We needed to get from Montreal to Quebec City for a cruise so we decided to take the tour one way.Everything from start to finish was wonderful and at the end of the tour we were dropped at the hotel before they return to Montreal. So much better than sitting on a train.
Well organized, everything was on time and presented very well! Had a very nice time, thank you.
Everyone involved in the day trip was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. As my husband said, "it was worth every penny."
We are so happy that we took the time from Montreal to go to Quebec! The tour guides were well-informed and amusing as well. Quebec was like stepping back into time with its walled city, cobbled stoned and narrow streets. There was plenty of time for shopping and exploring on our own after a walking tour of Old Quebec, a brief trip and stop at the falls and an extensive bus tour of the city. Highly recommended !
Awesome day trip to Quebec City! Unfortunately it wasn't long enough to see everything! I recommend not taking the boat cruise if you want more time to explore the old town, the other sites and have a nice lunch. The local guide was excellent and very informative!
This tour is really great. Although I would say that one day in Quebec is really not enough, the tour guide did a great job of trying to fit in all the highlights for us in the limited time.
My advice would be not to do the river cruise, it only really repeats the sights and insights from the bus tour and takes up most of your free time in Quebec city. It would be much better to have the free time as there is so much to see.
A very knowledgeable guide with excellent French and English language skills and a great sense of humour made this trip so interesting and lots of fun.
Well organized,comfortable,and informative
I would skip the cruise in order to spend time strolling the city.
They pick me up and drop me to my hotel. Driver makes the trip very entertaining and share its knowledge of the localities around the way, which is very nice. The tour guide in Quebec was also very nice and entertaining person. Price is definitively worthed , you pay almost the same price if you book the bus transport from bus terminal, but you don't have the hotel pick ups, the tour guides andthe fun this tour offers. I booked online with no problem. I took my phone with confirmation email on my screen, and they printed the ticket for me after they picked me from my hotel. Definitively recommended.
Great tour of Quebec City. We didn't choose to go on the cruise to Montmorency Falls so we had three and a half hours free time to have lunch and look around. It was enough time to get a taste for the area. Amazing city, would definately reccomend you visit it.
It was an excellent tour and the Guide Driver, Serge, was fantastic. The only downside was the dull weather though it was dry for all but the last half-hour in Quebec City, so we were able to see the interesting old town as well as the Falls and the Heights of Abraham. Serge drove expertly through some torrential rain on the way back. We are more than happy to recommend this tour. Sylvia and Robert from Scotland.
Our driver and tour guide were extremely knowledgeable and could not have been NICER or more organized. The information and scheduling that they provided helped up see and learn as much as we could in a short visit to Quebec. The tour also included plenty of time for us to stroll and lunch!
We booked this bus tour from Viator before we left Chicago. The actual tour is by Gray-line. I think it was cheaper to buy from Viator than Gray-line directly.
The bus made a quick stop at an Esso gas station half away from Montreal. Most people got their breakfast and morning coffee there. The convenient store has a lot of Canadian animal furs. Make sure you check this out on the way to Quebec so you can decide if you want to buy any on you way back from Quebec.
The bus picked up our local tour guide in front of Spag and tini in Quebec. We had a quick walking tour to see the “wall of 4 seasons painting”. We got back on the bus and the local tour guide told us about the Quebec while the bus driver did the driving in the narrow streets of Quebec and the Montmorency Falls. We were able to get off the bus at Montmorency Falls to walk around for photos in the rain. I was not too impressed by the falls .
We did not buy the river tour because of the “rain” and cold weather. We had a lot of time from 1:30pm to 5pm to eat and walk around Quebec. We had too much time because Quebec is a very small city. The people who got on the river cruise said they did not have enough time. We walked on the sidewalk where the bus/car drive on instead of the stairs.
All the buildings and street in Quebec looked like it was just made for tourist not a real city. We took a lot of photos. The best part of the tour was eating at Spag and tini for the Traverler’s menu. It included soup, main course, desert, a beverage, and tax/tip. Since we had many disappoint meals at Montreal, this was the best meal we had for our Montreal and Quebec trip.
One minor problem with the long bus ride was when the people in front had their chairs all the way inclined so the people in the back have no room. Some people were too cold on the bus because they were dressed for the hot weather and not the A/C on the bus. It was just right for me.
This is a great option to visit Quebec.
We learned so much on this tour and we vey happy that we had such a competent and professional driver in Serge. Everything was prompt and he explained each step in both English and French. On the trip there he told us a lot of the history and geography of Quebec. He looked out for each one of his passengers and at the end of the evening he even found a cab for us to return to our airport hotel. HE WAS GREAT! PS. One thing that we did not like that there was an older guide in Quebec City, who said he was a driver for 32 years, and though Serge was not doing anything wrong this guide, Roger, kept continually making fun of Serge's driving and there was no need for that. It made us uncomfortable to see him saying these things when Serge was dong a good job.
