This was the perfect stress-free way to have a taste of Quebec City. We are so happy that we chose to do this on a day-long guided bus tour rather than manage each aspect ourselves. Our bus driver was a great tour guide (even if he had a few too many puns), and the city guide was exceptional, both provided interesting and informative facts that helped us gain a better understanding of the area and its history. While it would have been nice to have a bit more time at the falls, we were very happy with the 3+ hours we had as free time in Quebec City. This was plenty of time for lunch, exploring, taking the funicular, and shopping. Overall it was a long day, but would highly recommend for anyone wanting to have a full day from Montreal and not worry about any planning.

This was an amazing tour!! It was very easy to arrange the logistics of the tour from making the reservation to asking them to pick us up at our hotel location. The Quebec tour guide Roger was AMAZING! So much information and history, very good! The driver Richard was funny in his own way. We loved Quebec and the restaurant we ate at, Sapristi, must try are their burrata and the fig pizza, greatly recommend! The only unpleasant part of the tour was the bathroom stop area, on the way back it was smelling as pure sewer so it was difficult to breathe! Thank God, everyone on the tour was quick to be back in the bus and we didn't have to stay there too long. It didn't help that when we were at that stop the driver just shut off the bus along with it the AC, so we couldn't sit in a hot bus and smell the sewer and had to walk around the stores until everyone was back in the bus and we were able to move. Overall, minus the sewer smell, an amazing experience!!

Big emphasis and repeated comments about the need to tip from the driver which made the whole process very awkward. He also insisted on playing a very random mix of music quite loud. On the way home, many people wanted to close their eyes and rest so this seemed like a poor choice. Apart from that, great day out and very well organised.
