This trip is very well organized and conducted. I was picked up by a shuttle van from my hotel exactly on-time. The bus was large and comfortable. It did not, however, have receptacles for cell phone charging. The bus left on time and make a rest stop half way to Quebec. It did not seem like a long trip thanks to the break. We were met by Katya who was an excellent tour guide. We did a 45-minute walking tour around Petit Champlain then got of the bus for the side trip to Montmorency Falls. They were spectacular in the winter. I walked over the bridge but felt that the view from an observation deck just below the top of the falls was more impressive. The bus then took us through the new and old towns with a narrated tour. Finally, you have about three hours free time which is just about right to have a lunch and shop. The bus picked us up promptly for the return trip that also included a stop at the halfway point with access to a McDonald's and other meal options. Quebec is a beautiful city and this tour is an excellent way to see it on a day trip out of Montreal.

Mounir, the tour guide, gave both my daughter and I a great city tour from a local's perspective, showing us the major neighborhoods, parks, highlights of Montreal including the local food specialties. We did the tour when it was -8 degrees Celsius, and being from California, it was not easy. Mounir was very patient with us and we never felt rushed. We highly recommend him as he is the consummate attentive tour guide professional having done this for many decades.

Evening Gourmet Tour 5 Course Dinner - History and Food in Old Quebec City
Great Inrtroduction to Quebec Culture and Food
, Feb 2020
Our guide, Lynn Rochefort, was gracious and well informed about both the food and Quebec history and culture. The tour was well organized. It introduced us to a variety of foods and restaurants. The highlight for my wife and me was our excellent and informative conversation with Lynn about Quebec culture.
Our guide, Lynn Rochefort, was gracious, knowledgeable, and fun to spend time with. She not only introduced us to a variety of enjoyable Quebec restaurants with great food, she was a fund of information about Quebec history, culture, and attitudes. My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We used many things we learned from Lynn to plan our activities for our remaining days in Quebec.
The food was delicious. It was nice to walk around the city and going from restaurant to restaurant. The guide would explain a bit about everything along the way.
This was a nice highlight. However, I cannot say enough on how great the tour guide was. She was very knowledgeable and pationate about every type of food and about the city overall. She gave us so many amazing recommendations and talked about the overall life in Quebec City. It was a great experience. Then we got a got treat at the end.

The tour guide was excellent — very knowledgeable, friendly and kept my interest despite the length. Logistically, they could drastically improve things. I had to call several times to confirm that they were picking us up, despite leaving several messages. Then, they were 15 mins late. Then, they brought us to the ticket center but did not tell us anything. We were just following the crowd. Then they shuffled us onto another bus, but then were offended that we didn’t have tickets, so shooed us back inside to go get tickets even though we had the Viator tickets. Apparently we had to convert them to some antiquated paper receipt. As I mentioned above, the tour guide was informative, but it was really hard to see much on the bus. And the tour was very long. We stopped a few times for a few minutes so we could get off the bus and take a quick pic, but this style of touring is not my cup of tea. I would have preferred if the guide sat us in a classroom and showed us slides and a map, as we probably would have seen more that way. Overall, the cost and the guide were great, but the rest was subpar.
The guide was very informative and the place is gorgeous. We did it under a light snow fall and with plenty of snow on the ground already. The Christmas decorations added beauty. All together a very memorable experience.
Experience an overview of Montreal on this guided sightseeing tour of the city.

Half-Day Trip to Montmorency Falls and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré from Quebec
Easy way to spend the day in Quebec
, Jan 2020
We made a last minute booking for a half day excursion around Quebec. We visited a chocolatier on Isle D'Orleans, Montmorency Falls, a Copper museum, and Ste. Anne's church. It was the perfect way to spend a few hours on a frigid day with single digit temperatures. The "chocolatier" was really just a candy store with artisan chocolates, and the copper museum was more store and less museum - with a bit of education about the art mixed in. Each stop was enjoyable appropriately timed. I did not find myself wishing for more, or feeling anxious to move on. Our guide, Allain, was delightful. He was kind, knowledgeable, provided amusing and informative anecdotes about the areas we visited and drove through, and kept the tour moving at a great pace.
Escape to the beautiful countryside around Québec City on this half-day adventure to Montmorency Falls and the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré.

DO AND SEE IT ALL WITH TOUR GUIDE BRIAN
, Sep 2019
I had booked a Viator tour for our day in Quebec (off of a cruise ship). While I had a difficult time finding that just right tour, Viator was great to work with and personally connected me with Brian - who would be our guide. Not only was Brian willing to "tweak" our tour, he was super enthusiastic about it. Our tour was off to a rough start - since our cruise ship was 2 hours late arriving into Quebec, but Brian was well aware - even before we were, and his communication was both awesome and re-assuring. While his schedule only allowed him to extend our tour by 1 hour (due to scheduling), he easily made up that hour by slightly shortening our stops. Having said that we didn't feel that he left anything out. We so appreciated his commentary during our stop at Ste. Anne, and he picked the perfect place for a quick lunch on Is Orleans as well as a quick stop at an apple vineyard. Then on to Montmorency Falls. Then back to the city for a walking tour. Brian new all the history, was informative, entertaining, accommodating and more. And when he left us, he left us with shopping, dining and site seeing ideas (for our 2nd day in Quebec on our own). Brian had to have been one of the best tour guides we have ever had and I whole-heartedly recommend him. **On a side note to cruise ship passengers...when booking with Viator please know their cancellation policy and keep that in mind since cruising does have schedule changes.

I took both tours, East and West, and I thoroughly enjoyed them! Elise (I believe that was her name) was super fun, energetic and knowledgable about the city! Even in the cold cold weather she stayed positive. Highly recommended!
Elise our tour guide was knowledgeable and very passionate about her city and the overall architecture and subject matter. The walk to the East took us to interesting viewpoints. The Basilica was the overall highlight and we appreciated Elise letting us know that there would be an organ concert the same day, which we attended and it was magical.

The whale watching trip was amazing! Yves, the bus driver/tour guide was funny and informative in both English and French. My husband and I decided to take the zodiac instead of the big boat and it was fantastic. Even though we got drenched, it didn't ruin our adventure. The guide on the boat was excited about the number of whales we saw. There were humpbacks, fins and minkes. The gear the tour provided kept us warm and we would have been wetter without it. My suggestion to others taking the zodiac is to dress warmly in layers and take dry clothes and shoes to change into after the tour. Would I do it again....hell yes!
We went on the whale watching tour yesterday. The 3 hour drive to the boats was absolutely amazing. We got to see beautiful forests in full on indian summer colors!! Also the boat that we were on was comfy and we got to see some whales and seals!!! It was literally breathtaking. A negative point was the fact that there were no safety belts in the bus which is totally dangerous as the bus was driving over 120km/h most of the time! Also my husband and I had a really hard time understanding the guide when he spoke english. I reckon that english was not his mother tongue.
We saw Minka, Beluga and one Humpback! This was our 1st time actually seeing whales. No jumping in the air but they came close to big boat. Only thing i would say is they need not to let people stand on ladder as they block ease of going up and down.

We had a great time with our tour guide Kim! This tour was a great way to see Old Town. The tour provided some history on the city and we were able to experience Montreal culture - through food! All of the places that we stopped were excellent. We even went back to some of them throughout the rest of our stay in the city. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun way to learn about Montreal - and definitely take the alcohol upgrade.
We had a terrific time on our "food tour" of Old Montreal! Our guide, Fran, was warm and funny, and knew everything! We were able to see parts of the city and EAT at places we would have never known about as tourists. The French Onion Soup is worth the price of admission! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone who comes to visit Montreal!

The Ice Hotel is a must see! I wish their was more time allotted at the location, so we could have tried the tubing and other attractions available. It wasn’t as much a “guided tour” as a shuttle to and from the ice hotel.
The hotel was really unique and the transportation services were really convenient. Worth it. The only one thing is the pick-up and drop-off spot in Quebec City was in front of the monument of the world heritage. Technically it was not in the tourist information or in front of it. The tour website didn't specify it and we didn't know that, so we nearly missed the bus at 9 am.
Eliminate the need to rent a car while visiting the Ice Hotel with this tour that includes round-trip transportation. With pickup and drop-off in Quebec City, you can just sit back and enjoy the scenery on the ride.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the tour. It exceeded our expectations in every way. Marie, our guide was so very pleased and well informed. At the end of the tour, not only were our palates satisfied, but we felt as though we were saying farewell to an old friend.
Exceeded our expectations for tour and gourmet food
, Nov 2019
We had our tour on Nov. 26th and Denise was our guide. He was prompt, on schedule, and was the perfect ambassador for Quebec City. Each restaurant we stopped at was better than our expectations and delicious. We are hooked. It is likely we will return in future and will definitely book this tour again and not waste time searching other food tours. We hope Denise would be the guide once again.
My wife and I have traveled extensively & taken many side tours during our 50 years of marriage. However, the food tour of Old Quebec City was probably our "best ever". Our guide, Gabriella, was superb. It took us a little while to find one another because of the crowds, but eventually Gabriella was able to bring the 8 of us together. She kept us on schedule to visit a variety of places. First for hors D'oeuvres and a nice glass of wine. Next to an old factory converted to a hotel where we sampled a typical charcuterie platter of prepared meats, fresh bread and a variety of cheeses with both red & white wines. Later, on our 3rd stop, the piece de resistance, we were surprised to visit a restaurant called Le Continental, an exquisite place where we were treated to one of the "best ever" meals. Shrimp sauteed in a lobster bisque sauce with several other ingredients; alcohol was added, flambeed to perfection at the table & accompanied by a very light, crisp Pinot Grigio. Next to another popular restaurant for a dinner of wonderfully cooked Beef Bourguignon, mashed garlic potatoes and green beans. More excellent wine and still more. Finally, Café La Maison Smith St-Jean, known for great coffees, croissants and a wide variety of the local cookie specialty, MACAROONS. A perfect ending to a tour we will long remember. Don't miss it and make sure you ask for Gabriella as your guide.
Quebec City is known for food and history, and this tour gives you an immersion in both worlds. Visit top restaurants and historical sights as you take in the best of Quebec City. Combine a guided walking tour with a stop for an amuse-bouche, charcuterie platter, a flambé dish, farm-to-platter delicacies, and a little something sweet to end the evening.
