Quebec City: Montmorency Falls Shuttle Bus Transfers

1. Quebec City: Montmorency Falls Shuttle Bus Transfers

Climb aboard a shuttle departing from Old Quebec and travel directly to Montmorency Falls. At 272 feet tall Montmorency Falls are 1.5-times higher than Niagara Falls. Meet the bus in the center of Old Quebec, near the Chateau Frontenac, for a 15-minute journey to the falls. Arriving at the base of the cable car, you can decide to explore the park on foot or ride the cable car to the top. Entrance ticket for site access are included in the cost of this activity. At the base is a promontory, an ideal place to feel the spray of mist and hear the thundering cascade. In winter months, the splashes eventually freeze and form a natural ice cone at the foot of the falls. From the top, you’ll see dazzling views of the falls, park cove, and Île d’Orléans. The suspension bridge at the top is a must-see where you can feel the water roaring beneath your feet. There are also a number of trails where you can enjoy the fresh air, peace and quiet, and beauty of the park. You might like to ride the cable car up and then descend via the 487-steps of the Panoramic Staircase for a different perspective of the Falls. When you are ready, return to the shuttle drop-off point at one of the 5 convenient return time available. The shuttle will return you to Old Quebec.

Driver Yves was super nice and informative and was an excellent driver they these busy Quebec streets. Nice drive to falls and he was there to pick us up on time. There was a huge line up for the cable car so we opted to walk the level trail to the bottom of the falls and it turned out to be the best way to feel the power, see, and touch the falls! Took some excellent videos!

Our trip to and from the falls was just as expected. The bus was very comfortable and air conditioned. I appreciated that the service had a variety of pick up and drop off times so we could stay as long as we wanted. Our driver was really funny and gave us some great tips to get the most out of the falls.

The shuttle bus is an easy way to get to the Montmorency Falls and back again to old Quebec City. It departs from just outside The Frontenac Hotel and returns to the same place where

The guide Salina was the best. She was friendly , knowledgeable and showed us all the various site with so much enthusiasm.

Amazing tour and tour bus driver/guide! Enjoyed every minute of it
