The trip experience excellent! We filled out the 1.5 hours as promised. The tour/guide was great - very knowledgeable and energetic. He was able to answer other questions about the Montreal history. The crew were knowledgeable, fun and entertaining. The hot chocolate, however, was sub-par, especially for the price. We also did not appreciate being asked whether or not we wanted our photo taken before it was actually taken.

The boat was on-time, the food was better than expected and the prices for food and drinks were the same as those on shore. The cruise was excellent and crew was friendly and helpful. I would have paid twice as much for a longer cruise. It was hot but they had air conditioning inside.

We arrived a little early to make sure we had parking. To our pleasant surprise there is paid parking right on the pier. The cruise left on time and our guide (Frédérique) explained everything in both French and English. The waitress was very pleasant and got our order to us in quick time. I am happy to recommend this cruise to anyone who wishes to see the very busy port of Montreal and impressive St.Lawrence river.
