What people are saying about Laurentian Mountains

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 190 reviews

This trip was exactly as promised. A comfortable day in the Laurentians visiting a few small towns and enjoying wonderful scenery. The guide Richard and driver Serge were both excellent- considerate and with very useful tips at several points of the journey- from where to eat to what to do. I won’t detail the itinerary except to say it was well chosen. The time at each stop was appropriate and pick up and return to the hotel was efficient. After reading some of the reviews before booking I was hesitant but they are not reflective of my experience. This was a highlight of my visit to Quebec and I enjoyed it immensely as the dozens of spectacular photographs demonstrate.

Evening cruise is the best option I chose !! Really so entertaining and best is sun dawn view and water and air !!! Supre good to see the best view !! After the music was fantastic

A fabulous day out, with many short stops on the way in delightful villages that I hadn’t heard of. Very well organised and well commentated.

Relaxed evening on the cruise with music, good food and drinks. Everyone in the family had a wonderful time.

Nice cruise with music. Can certainly get better spirits.
