We had a wonderful time on our trip with Peter., our guide His humour and helpful manner were truly appreciated. His recounting of the history of Quebec, Old Quebec and the Montmorency Falls was exceptionally well done. He added a little whimsy and humour to the telling that made the whole experience exciting and entertaining. One of the highlights of our time visiting the area. We highly recommend the experience.

The tour is good for a quick overview of Extended Quebec city. It didnt drive in Lower town nor did we get any info on the masterpiece hotel. The guide was gentleman and we got good info but I was little disappointed by the lack of understanding of the guide as to what is the primary highlight of the tour. We got 5 less minutes (40 min total) than was advertised by the tour at the Falls . The guide could have easily given us those minutes at the beginning and more which were lost chatting. The emphasis on the 5 min was because it made us rush back to meet the time without seeing the actual Best viewpoint on the other side of the Falls. I brisk walked to the other side viewpoint and took some pictures but my family was not able to walk so fast and hence couldnt take a family picture with it. None of the other guests could make it to the other side viewpoint which was easily doable and the guide didnt expect us to go there either. Maybe the tour should adjust their timeline.

It was a great experience. The bus is comfortable. We left on time. The tour took us around Quebec city and you get learn about the different point of interests. Our tour guide was very friendly, even offered to take a picture with the falls on the background. It is a good tour to get familiar with the city or if you have walked a lot.
