Lovely cruise, great value, staff was all extremely friendly and the tour guide very enjoyable and shared some interesting facts, along with a great commentary of the sights.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Enjoyed the tour very much and the scenery was so beautiful. Make sure you head to the front of the boat to see the tour guide in costume and hear him better, all though we still had some trouble hearing him above the wind that day. He speaks in French and English which was great. Also be sure to take a jacket. We were there in late July and when the wind was whipping I really wish I had one because it was cool, but I survived. A very nice and relaxing thing to do.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our Quebec City cruise. It was easy to exchange our voucher for tickets and the trip started and ended on time. We got great information on the sites we were seeing and it really helped that it was a beautiful day so we spent the entire trip on the top deck. I would recommend this cruise to anyone who wants to learn more about Quebec history and see some great views of the city and surroundings.
