    3. Quebec City: Montmorency Falls & Ile d'Orleans Half-Day Tour

    Visit the Côte-de-Beaupré region and Ile d'Orleans on a half-day tour from Quebec City. Discover the traditional villages of rural Quebec as you leave the driving to your experienced guide. Depart Quebec's Old Town and ride along the 40-kilometers of Chemin du Roy to Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré. Make a stop at Abert Gilles' copper art studio along the way then spend 45-minutes exploring the renowned Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré Basilica. Your next stop is the stunning Montmorency Falls, standing 1.5-times higher than Niagara Falls.  Be treated to a short visit of the beautiful Island of Orleans (Ile d'Orleans) and its charming 19th Century rural atmosphere. Stop in at the Island chocolate shop for some sweet treats before the return journey.

    The tour was really nice and they are very accommodating. We missed our original booking because we were late but they still honored it and allowed us to go on the tour the next day. I just wish we had more time on The island and on the falls and just totally skid the Copper Museum Tour.
