The tour itself was very good, but not well suited to a rainy day such as we had. The bus wasn't particularly great for taking pictures as we saw various sites, and the only stop was at the falls - so much of what was seen was difficult to photograph. I personally wasn't comfortable walking in the rain on the wooden boardwalk around the falls. Of course, the views of the falls were the most important and best part of the tour in my opinion, and it's just a shame we had bad weather for it. My biggest problem with all of the Get Your Guide activities is they don't provide enough detailed info to enable you to find your guide, e.g., this trip indicated the guide would be in period dress, and our guide was in a shirt and trousers - not what I would consider period. I didn't care except that we walked around in the rain for quite a while looking for the appropriate bus.
Daniel, our tour guide was interesting. This tour takes you by the important sites of the city in the 2 hour tour. He pointed out the beautiful Frontenac Hotel and told us some history since our pick-up point was across the street from the hotel. We drove by the Citadel. We drove by the Plains of Abraham and Daniel gave some history about the battle. He drove around several neighborhoods, pointing out the beautiful architecture. He drove us around the port, and he also took us to the marina where he stopped so we could get off of the bus to take photos of the beautiful views of the city of Quebec. He also drove us thru different parts of the city where we could see a variety of the many businesses of the city.
Driver was great! She took us to both the top and bottom of the falls. Super nice. The city tour was a bit repetitive for me but I’d also already been on another tour so there’s that. The falls were definitely the best part!
We travelled in the winter so this was the perfect opportunity to see sights and stay warm. The guide was very knowledgeable and suggested other places to visit. Glad we took the tour our first day here.
The marathon was on that day and the guide needed to change our route. We saw many interesting places we would not otherwise have seen.
