This was a 6-star tour from start to finish. All went smoothly. The day was exceptionally beautiful and the foliage was at peak. Best of all our guide, Jeffrey, had 25 years experience and was a native. He even took part of the route to the cathedral off the main highway. He drove through the village of Ste Anne de Beaupre and pointed out sights from his youth where he grew up. Our stop at Marie's Bakery was hit. The fresh bread topped with maple butter literally melted in my mouth. The huge cinnamon rolls were a huge hit. My husband particularly enjoyed seeing the outdoor brick oven where the baking was once done along with the coal stove used for cooking. It was a flash back to his youth. All this was topped off with a viewing of the Montmorency Falls, a visit to a coppersmith, and the chocolatier. Viator is the way to go.
This tour was the highlight of our trip. Francois is an incredible driver guide and was the best tour guide I have had. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Quebec. Wonderful experience and worth every penny!
Excellent tour. The guide really made this such a great experience. Highly recommend.
tour guide was very knowledgeable, lots of interesting stops. only downside is that there was not really enough time at the falls. overall though fun and a definate must for first time quebec city visitors.
Enjoyed our country trip and were so glad that we signed up before our arrival in Quebec. It added a lot to your Quebec experience.
Driver and his commentary were excellent. Trip was very interesting. Would recommend.
Our guide was so entertaining and made the trip so much fun we covered a lot of area and learned a lot of things
Excellent guide who was local and gave us a real insight into the area.
Very well done. Guide excellent and very well informed. Recommend this tour.
Outstanding...Absolutely wonderful...do not have any more words to describe it...Our driver Daniel picked us up on time at the Museum of Civilizationacross from the cruise port and then off we went to the Falls 1st and then onto to the beautiful countryside around Québec City and then to Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré what an exceptional Church. We then stopped at Chocolaterie de l'Ile d'Orléans, the Cuivres D'Art Albert Gilles copper art museum. I have not tasted a better Chocolate ice-cream than this one before and I am an ice-cream fanatic. So please do not hesitate, book this tour and you will be pleasantly surprised.
Thank you Viator for making this a memorable tour.
We had a n awesome driver who knew the history of the many places he took us to.
Would definitely recommend this tour.

This was a great tour. My favorite part was visiting the family-run copper art studio. We went there before going to Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre where the father had been commissioned to create the beautiful doors.
Tour guide was from the area and extremely knowledgeable about the church. If you go to Quebec City, don't miss this one.
Although you could easily drive to Montmorency Falls and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre from Quebec, it is worth it to sit back, enjoy the ride and listen to the tour guide also the driver. The stop at the copper factory was informative and there was no pressure to buy. And amazing examples of this art the front doors, for instance! could then be seen at Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre. Scenic, informative, and enjoyable and longer than expected about 5 hours start to finish.
We enjoyed this tour immensely. The falls were beautiful as was St. Anne's Church.. Had a delightful tour guide.
A great day of sightseeing. The Montmorency Falls were great with brilliant views from both the bottom and the top after a ride up in the trolley. Chocolates, fresh baked goods, brilliant scenery. All part of a great day, topped off with a visit to Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre church, with beautiful statues and magnificent stain glass stories set in a very spiritual church.
This 1/2 day trip is a good way to see the Quebec countryside. Our tour guide Francois, a native of the village where the giant cathedral is located was funny and informative. The copper factory was interesting as well. We could have used some more time at the Montmorency Falls but it is a 1/2 day trip.
Mzarcel was our guide - He gave both the French and English version of the trip
Great view of the falls from the bottom
The tour was excellent. Our driver and tour guide was very informative. He was from St Anne de Beaupre so his knowledge of the area was extensive and we really appreciated his personal family stories which explained the history of the area. Montmorency Falls was also amazing. Again, excellent tour!!
