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!
very informative and just what I needed to get to know the city..filled up my whole dau.
Yes it was a five star. Guide was excellent and walk was very doable for us seniors. We learned a tremendous amount. Onlly negative was that the weather was freezing and we were not adequately equipped.
It was great! We really enjoyed going through some of the neighborhoods instead of the stop near the bottom of the funicular. We were able to walk that part on our own on the way back to the ship. It was a great overview again which is what we wanted. The driver did an excellent job. How do you spell Franchua?
We LOVED Quebec City as shown us by the wonderful Elaine! She had so much joie de vivre and love for the city. We look forward to coming back. Traveling with Viator was effortless and really delightful.
We had the tour on the day of the bike race so we were not able to see some areas of the older parts of the city. Our guide and driver were very resourceful as we came to blocked streets and had to alter our route. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave lots of interesting information. He had to depart from his usual tour information because of all the route changes and he did a excellent, witty job.
One comment - we were supposed to be delivered back to our ship. Because of blocked streets we were going to be let off on a street well above the dock area. This wouldn't have been a problem if one of our party wasn't handicapped and unable to walk down hill. Between them the driver and guide figured out that we could be taken to the train station so we could get a taxi to our ship from there. Our bus was not a regular tour bus (as it had been described) so it had no bathroom. At the station the only bathrooms were on the 2nd floor with no elevators. It seemed in general that handicapped people were not thought of. Despite that our guide and driver did a great job in difficult circumstances
This was a good general city tour. A lot of time was lost in the beginning just collecting the passengers

The tour and it's content we're great. Good locations to visit. The driver/guide,Brian,was appalling. He talked constantly for hours and most of it was NOT about the tour venues or the history,it was about him and about how he was about to park the bus. If we had not been in such a remote location, we would have got off. I wrote to the tour company on their website to complain but never heard back.
I would recommend the tour to a friend but advise them "not to go" if Brian was the driver.
Worked well. Entertaining guide. On reflection, perhaps we would have liked as lightly longer and wider view of the city including a ferry crossing.
The tour tickets told us to wait at 12:30 and the bus did not pick us up until 1:00 to take us to the tour bus. It felt a bit unorganized and after the tour the bus turned into a shuttle bus.
The tour guide tried very hard, but narrating in French , then English and driving in very heavy traffic was hazardous. Of course, there was no way to ask a question. We suggest you hire a separate driver. There was a one hour wait between the time we were told to be at the meeting place and the time the tour started. We waited for the first bus to come and then we waited for the second bus to come to get on and start the tour! One hour of our precious time.
