It was an amazing adventure riding in the zodiac [the driver was very knowledgeable and friendly] on the Gulf of St Lawrence which leads to the Atlantic Ocean. We saw some Humpback whales! What a spectacular sight to see. An unforgettable trip. The bus ride there was also amazing with the wonderful mountain and water views. We enjoyed the bus trip didn't have to worry about the drive there. The bus driver and the guide were very knowledgeable and funny. We definitely recommend this Whale watching Excursion with Bus Transfer!

The only negative is that we were not given information on where to meet the tour, so we walked far and had to take the funicular to get up to stop one. Stop 3 was at the seaport. We should have been given that address to board. The tour-guide was outstanding. Very knowledgeable and interesting.

Our visit to Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre and Ile d’Orleans was memorable.

Great way to see Quebec and Old Quebec- easy on and off.

Great way to see the city and enjoy each district.
