Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Quebec City Shore Excursion: Half-Day Tour to Montmorency Falls and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We enjoyed the tour very much. Of the events that were included we felt the chocolate factory, which was nothing more than a store selling chocolate and ice cream, was not necessary. If there were a tour of a factory making chocolate that would be better. Leave it out. The stop at the Bakery was nice to introduce you to maple butter, but again just an opportunity for the bakery to sell their product. The stop at the copper gallery was nice because it is family owned and operated. The daughter gave a brief history of her father, the primary artist, now deceased, and took the time to personalize the process they follow in creating their designs. Since Gilles did some work for St. Anne's that also added a personal touch when we visited the Shrine. There was no pressure to buy anything and the museum is beautiful. Montmorency Falls is very pretty and the tram ride was okay. There is a senior discount and the tour guide also provided us with discount coupons to ride the tram. That was very thoughtful. Although it is not necessary to take the tram to get to the top of the falls, if one did not start at the bottom many of the photo ops would not be available, so we didn't mind paying for the tram ride. St. Anne de Beaupre was gorgeous. I would like to have spent about another 10-15 minutes at the falls and at least another 30 minutes at St. Anne's. I had been there once as an 8 year old and enjoyed seeing it again. Overall we would suggest this tour but would like to see more time spent at Montmorency and St. Anne's.
We had a wonderful tour guide and the sights of Quebec City, Montmorency Falls, and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre were amazing. Our guide also took us to a store where beautiful copper artifacts are manufactured. For us this was one of the highlights of the tour. We highly recommend this excursion.
When the Regatta docked 1 and 1/2 miles from where it was scheduled to park, I called the locale number on our vouchers. They arranged for the bus to come right to the pier where the Regatta was docked and picked us up there. The tour itself was wonderful. Quebec was the port we liked best.
I have already recommended Viator to friends who are planning a cruise in late December.
It was great being able to talk with y'all at Viator when the internet was not enough for me.
Excellent... Was really worth the money..
Driver was excellent and really made the trip enjoyable
Our guide, Francois (spelling?) was fantastic and very informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and trip!
Good tour. Would recommend. Chocolate factory and Bakery were basically stops for owners to see their products. If you actually visited the Chocolate factory in production that would have been interesting. Montmorency Falls and St. Anne's were wonderful. I would add another 10 minutes at the Falls and another 30 minutes at St. Anne's. The copper museum was very nice and personalized by a presentation from the daughter of the original artist Gilles, who has long since passed. His work can be found within the walls of St. Anne's.
This was an excellent tour and our guide was outstanding. We recommended the tour to several others on our cruise.
This was a wonderful tour. It actually went almost an hour longer than it was supposed to we had more than enough time at the falls and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre. The other stops gave us time also and we did not feel rushed at all. It was very informative and I told everyone when we got back to the ship about it. Our tour was better than the one offered by the ship as I compared info with people who took the one offered by the ship and I think we got more for our money (it was also cheaper). I am so glad that I found your site and I would book with Viator again. My husband was also impressed with your tour and that is saying something.
Driver was very gracious, allowing us to use his phone to confirm our Viator tour in Montreal.
tour was very nice, comfortable bus, good driver and guide--
can you do anything about the weathr??
It was a wonderful tour,the driver Roland was most imformative and managed to get us to places before the crowd got there.Quebec is a beatiful place.
EXCELLENT Side trip when visiting Quebec City........many,many thanks to our "DRIVER"....
he was great at giving us an excellent running narrative with details about areas we drove thru onroute to PRIMARY Tour Destinations.....he did a Super Job !!!!! Aldo
This tour is very worthwhile. The falls are beautiful and the cathedral is impressive. Our guide - Gabe - was very informative and funny. Our only quibble was the small size of the bus. This means smaller windows and more cramped seats.
