What To Expect

Get to know Québec City and its top attractions on this guided sightseeing tour from Montreal. The full-day adventure begins with hotel pickup in downtown Montreal. Climb aboard a comfortable motor coach and enjoy the journey to Québec City, with commentary from your guide along the way.

Explore Old Québec, the historic heart of French Canada and the capital of the province of Québec, with its narrow streets, stone buildings, and European feel and learn about the city's history and culture.

Visit Place Royale, often referred to as the birthplace of French America, and the beautiful Plains of Abraham, where the famous Battle of Québec between the French and English armies took place in the Seven Years’ War in 1759.

Then follow Avenue Royale through the traditional villages and farms of the Beaupre Coast, just north of Québec City to visit Montmorency Falls, a 272-foot (83-meter) waterfall on the Montmorency River (taller than Niagara Falls).

After the tour, there is ample time to explore Old Québec at leisure. The tour ends with a return trip to Montreal and hotel drop-off.

The schedules is tight so make sure you respect times set to be back to the bus.
Quebec is small and has cobblestone hills, so be careful with strollers ans wheelchairs.
It is quite a long day but very worth it.

Rush, rush sand more rushing.
Beth_S, Aug 2022
I would have preferred going straight to falls and having more time in the city. Roger was good but hard to hear with so many people. The whole day felt very rushed.
Too long of bus ride and too short in Quebec.
Marc_P, Aug 2022
Very long bus ride for not that much time in Quebec city and Quebec city itself deserves at least two days.
Right balance
Jay_L, Aug 2022
Enjoyable time throughout with the time flying by. Just the right balance of guide and free to roam time.
A Great Experience
Ed_D, Aug 2022
Touring Quebec city was very informative. Lots of photographs are to be taken here. Great view of the falls. A long drive from Montreal city.
We were fortunate that...

We were fortunate that everything was on schedule and not much traffic. Andre and Roget were informative. Although not much time at Montmorency Falls, we had a great day at Quebec City.
Great experience
Alanna_K, Aug 2022
We were picked up by the grey line shuttle at our hotel right on time and we left on the tour right on time as well. Andre and Katya were absolutely amazing driver/guides! We learned so much, they were pleasant and funny and it was a very smooth trip. They gave clear instructions, great visual cues to help us during free time and the drop off/pick up spot was conveniently located. My only wish is that the tour actually stopped even for just 1 minute at the Parliament, Plains of Abraham and Citadel part of the tour just for a quick picture as it is very unlikely you can return to all of those spots or ride the funicular in the busy season of summer on this one trip. That is through no fault of our guides though and overall I would highly recommend this tour and would definitely do it again! They were our favorite tour guides of the week.

Solid tour in every way
John_I, Aug 2022
Our family travels often and we enjoy these types of day tours. This tour hit all the right notes and our tour guides Richard (driver) and Roget (tour) were both spot on the whole day. Funny and informative. We saw all we needed to of Quebec but felt we wanted to spend more time there later due to their enthusiasm and skills as guides.
Not a great tour!
Ganesh_M, Aug 2022
The price for the trip is 120$, I am not sure if the driver and guide are paid by the company or not! because they were keep insisting that we should tip them! and also they both were looked not so friendly! The guide did not take you to much places as well! she was just telling about the places in bus and you have to see the places from the bus! in Montmerency falls, we were given just 30 min to spend, no other activates! In the old town Quebec, we were given 2 h free time and only within that time you can go and visit the places by yourself! I found other tour for 45$, where bus trip from Montreal + cable car in Montmorency falls + more time in Quebec city is included from! I would not recommend this for such a high price and when driver and guide keep on saying "tip us!".

Magical Quebec City
Gary_R, Aug 2022
Great trip to magical Quebec City. It’s a must see. The bus driver and Quebec tour guide were both wonderful.
Great trip but they want you to tip
Kimberly_U, Aug 2022
It was a great trip, the driver had a great sense of humor and the tour guide was very informative. My only critique is that we were not told that tips were expected for the the driver AND tour guide. We did not bring cash so it was just awkward.
A great snapshot of Quebec
Jane_B, Aug 2022
It was a good tour for anyone short on time and to get a taste of Quebec. The driver and guide were friendly, informative and safe. I would suggest it be made clear that tips are on top of the cost of the tour and perhaps a tipping guide, as many people come from countries where it is not a custom to tip, subsequently I did not have much money with me to tip.

It was a great tour! Well...
Maria_B, Aug 2022
It was a great tour! Well worth the time and $$. Quebec City is amazing! Would highly recommend this to anyone.
Nice brief overview of Quebec City. Makes you wish you had more time to spend there.
Michele_B, Aug 2022
Although we did not have guide on our bus, Frank our driver was great! I felt like we were in very good hands while in transit and around the city! Pierre, our guide in Quebec City was knowledgeable, funny, informative. Our tour was on the day Pope Francis was leaving, so some streets were closed, or in the process of reopening, leading to unexpected changes in the route Pierre had planned in the city. Changes were skillfully handled by Frank and Pierre and we didn’t miss a thing!
They failed to pick me up...
Olga_B, Jul 2022
They failed to pick me up from the hotel. We spent 40 mins outside waiting. When noone showed up by 8 am I called them and they offered to reschedule me on a tour around the city, we waited 45 more mins, noone picked us up . Please refund me asap

I'm so happy I booked...
Pia_M, Jul 2022
I'm so happy I booked this tour. Quebec City is a beautiful city with rich history and culture. Katya (sp.?) was an excellent guide and she made me want to go back and explore the city more. Don't miss booking this tour!
Good trip.
Susan_C, Jul 2022
The ride is pleasant but long. Bring something to do! The city itself is very pretty. What there is to do is: admire the cobblestone streets, take the funicular, go shopping, eat at cafes or candy/ice cream shops, shopping, and shopping. Also--shopping. Cost-effective way to see this city.
Don't Book With Them
Helaine_S, Jul 2022
Our trip to Canada was not able to happen as planned. We gave the required notice to cancel our trip. We did not receive the refund that we were due of almost $400! That is a lot of money for a trip we could not take!!!
It's just an ok tour
Tam_B, Jul 2022
We took the tour, nothing special. 3 hours break for lunch is just too long. They should have added more destinations in between. It took 3 hours from Montreal to Quebec just to have a 3 hours lunch is not good.
