I wrote my review for this tour under the Montmorency Falls space. We also liked this tour. The Falls were amazing and the church was beyond beautiful. We also liked the stop at the copper shop. The shop has 7 employees, all ladies and they are all part the family of the founder. They make all the lovely copper products. Nothing from China in that shop!
