  • Rudolph

  • It was immediately clear to me that the ticket price of 49 CAD would not cover all the costs. The bus was comfortable and the guide (Eric) very nice. I paid an additional 77 CAD cash for the cable cart to the waterfalls and for the cruise. I found it worthwile. Some people decided not to pay for that cable cart or not to participate in the cruise and that was fine as well. So these extras were "highly recommended" but no-one's arm was twisted. A great trip with enough free time to see the waterfalls and visit the city. I also quite enjoyed the cruise.

  • James

  • Very good tour May and the local tour guide to Quebec City! Very fun and informative tours, beautiful city architecture and solid food. The bus itself was comfortable enough for the 2+ hour ride and I would consider taking this tour again. Five stars

  • Charmaine

  • Old quebec is so pretty and looks like a French town! Please do not take the cable car to montmorency falls because it is not worth it and they squeeze like 20 people in!! The bus will take you up for free.
