Great one day trip from Montreal! Very enjoyable and organized. I was picked up at my hotel front door and greeted warmly by a veteran shuttle driver, who wasted no time getting everyone. It was a beautiful day and many people were going. After checking in at the main office our bus left proptly on time with an experienced driver. There was a full bus and the driver made everyone comfortable speaking in English and French with ease. In Quebec City, Our group promptly met our local guide. Again, another experienced guide with over 20 years giving tours. He spoke very good English/ French about cultural knowledge of the area. He was on point and humorous as well. We took a short trip to the falls and returned to the city for 3 hours a free time. Quebec City is wonderful during the holidays with many outdoor German style Christmas markets and much to see. After a full day, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves very much. This is probably the most affordable way to get to Quebec City from Montreal considering it takes 3 hours one way. I would do this again.

The price for the trip is to high as only sightseeing tour is included. The visit of the Montmorency Falls should include more than just a short view from the road.

We had Quebec City and Montmorency Falls day trip from Montreal on 21st October 2018 and it was an amazing experience with our Driver cum guide - Adrian. He made us feel comfortable and enjoyable through out the day trip to Quebec city. From Quebec city 'Mr. Rock' our local tour guide had wonderful experience and knowledge about Quebec city and it was quiet pleasant moving with him. On the whole except the cold climate the entire tour was memorable and fascinating. I will surely recommend this tour to all.

Wonderful day spent with an awesome bus driver (Ishamel) sp. and tour guide Rock. Ishamel played a funny video of Pranks and people on the bus were hysterically laughing....There was a quick 15 min bathroom and coffee break each way which was nice since the trip was a couple of hours each way. Check in was smooth, bus was comfortable and on time...Rock was a wealth of information as we left Montreal and even more so in Quebec City. I would skip the Falls as there is not enough time there to do anything but snap a picture...and it's not a serene waterfall. I would have preferred that extra 30 mins in Quebec. Highly suggest this trip for Adults and older teens as there is not much for younger kids to get excited about. Again, Viator does not disappoint.Note: I noticed that many on the bus did not provide a gratuity to the Tour Guide or Driver. Keep in mind these people work hard for our comfort and safety and just like wait staff in a restaurant....depend on that gratuity .....

Lovely city, very clean. The section of old town has been restored beautifully and is in keeping with the origins. Knowledgable local guide. Very touristy but some unique shops to found. P.S Don’t be late for the bus or you’ll be left behind, nearly happened to 2 x ladies on our trip who would of spent the day at the petrol station.

The tour itself was wonderful, the bus driver and the tour guide in Quebec were wonderful. We almost missed the tour because we were given horrible directions for pick up.

The tour hit the high points of Quebec. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting; he also made some great recommendations.

The tour started with a pretty rude receptionist at the tourist office in Montreal where we had to go instead of being picked up at the hotel, which was part of the service included in the tour. she couldn't explain why that part of the contract was violated. Then we got on the bus, and on our way out of the city, the driver pointed out different sites to us in both French and English, and honestly, he spoke both languages poorly and we couldn't understand what he was saying. Then finally we arrived in Quebec City, and an amazing local,guide took over - tyank goodness, she spoke perfect English. After tgat the tour was fantastic till we came back to Monteeal and were dropped off at our hotel. Quebec City is definitely worth visiting. We wish we had two days there instead of four hours. It was windy and chilly, but still wonderful.

We took a day trip from Montreal to Quebec City and Montmorency Falls. Quebec City is a beautiful old city with so much charm. Montmorency Falls were breathtaking. Our guide joined us in Quebec City. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the city, country, and the falls, which was very helpful in getting a better understanding of its inhabitants, politics, religion, and the area in general.I would recommend the tour, without hesitation. However, there are two areas that need improvement. We were picked up at our hotel by a bus then transported to the Gray Line office. As we were unloaded from the bus, we were told to go to the office to get a bar code. I had a bar code on the confirmation we received from Viator so we thought that was what was needed. We proceeded to stand in line to get on the bus that was going to take us on the trip -- which was different from the one that picked us up. They again told us to go to the office. The Gray Line office is not on the street, it is in a building. It wasn't visible from the street, so we had some difficulty finding it. We were not the only ones on the bus confused by what they wanted us to do. The bus driver could have easily told us on the way to the Gray Line Office what we needed while on the way to the office. I would like to suggest that in the "Before You Go" section of the Viator voucher, that it be stated that a Gray Line bar coded voucher is required to board the bus. We could have easily picked ours up days before our trip as we were staying in the area where the Gray Line office is located. We lost our place in front of the bus line because of this misunderstanding. The second item that could be improved upon is limiting the number of languages required of the guide to speak on the tour. Our guide had to repeat her narrative in three languages which made it difficult to follow. She was later able to decrease it to two languages which made it more easy to understand. Two languages should be the maximum, with one language being ideal.

Left on time - bus driver was great. Got to Quebec on time - Katia our guide was excellent. Left on time and got back as quoted. It was a bit of a long day but a great way to see Quebec City with a limited time allowance.
