Enjoyed this Cruise very much. Well worth the price . Highly recommend this excursion.
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.
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.
Guide was excellent.
Very well done, commentator was fantastic, and not too long of a tour. Will recommend it to friends.
This tour was amazing!
Great narration! Very informative!
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.
We really enjoyed this quiet tour with an excellent live bilingual commentary
The pier was easy to find adjacent to Old Town and near our cruise ship dock. It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for viewing the scenery from the open deck [there was inside areas as well]. The ship was a great way to see the 'St Lawrence face' of Quebec City and Ile d'Orleans island across the river. We had a creative narrator dressed in 18th Century finery who was very open to questions. It was a great trip.
