Quebec is a great city. A lot to do, a lot to see and many great restaurants When you’re tired of all that you must go on the bike tour to Montmorency Falls. Tour co. Echo Sports has 1st class bikes and our guide Paul was one of the best guides we have ever had in any tour worldwide. HighlyRecommend this tour. Excercise, touring and excitement all in one!!!!
Fantastic ride thru Quebec up to the falls and wow what a view. Only thing I would recommend is that you are actually fit enough for the guide we had and the huge amount of steps at the falls. Luckily my husband and I both ride and do gym work but the other older couple had a bit of trouble keeping up as the guide I think was really riding too fast for a tour and was in quite a hurry to get back to catch his ferry. Maybe the company need to allow extra time for this type of tour for other people to enjoy it as much as we did. By all means if you are fit then this tour is for you. The bikes and equipment are very well looked after.
First and foremost, Denis was an excellent guide - very friendly and knowledgeable. The bikes and equipment were well maintained, plenty of water and/or bio-breaks as needed. The biking itself was well paced even for the beginner and the hike down from the falls was loads of fun. The ride was safe, well-maintained trails and a lot of fun!
This proved to be a great experience from start to finish. The reception in the bike shop was warm and friendly and, as we were the only two riders that day, my wife was offered a free upgrade to an electric bike. Our guide, Benoit, was friendly and knowledgeable and we spent a very enjoyable afternoon in his company. The cycling was easy even more so for my wife! and a great way to feel like a local. The falls were spectacular. We went up in the cable car and down the steps, and even had time for a short walk along the river. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour.
Had a great day on this tour although it rained heavily on the way back all the group were great sports and just got on with it!
The cycling was mainly on flat easy cycle routes and the scenery at Montmorency Falls is spectacular. The staff at the bike shop were very friendly and Dominique our guide was very knowledgeable about Quebec. We had plenty of free time at the falls to wander round and the falls colours were spectacular even in the rain. Its about 12km each way to the falls but no hills to navigate so most people of average fitness would be able to do this trip.
My wife and I took the bike tour to Montmorency Falls with Dominic our tour guide. Stepping into the bike shop we were greeted and fitted with bikes and helmets. Everyone made a great attempt to make sure that we had working bikes that fit. Dominic gave us a run down of his plan for the tour and since there were only two of us for this tour, I think we got a little special treatment.
Dominic found a pace that suited us older folks and we got started on a nice tour to the falls.
The tour was great and the falls were spectacular. Dominic was nice enough to take some pictures of us giving us some special memories. On the way back, Dominic showed us a few special spots and made some recommendations for breakfast.
The best part of the tour was that Dominic knew a lot about the area, the history and was able to give a great sense of the place. He also answered some of my questions about the current political situation and we learned a lot.
I would highly recommend this tour and Dominic in particular. I know that the next time we head to Quebec City, we are going again.
