We scheduled this tour at the beginning of our time in Quebec to get a lay of the land before we toured on our own. Quebec is such a walkable city that it was perfect for that. It happened to be snowy day which made it even more special. Our family found it to be a great value for the experience.

A must-have experience if you are in the area. The best way to park on the lower end of the falls and take the cable car up to the falls and walk across. The upper part has lots of food options and entertainment places. Worth every dollar spent.

Amazing guide and driver. Took their time to explain all important places. Would recommend the tour for all.

It was an excellent tour with all covered. Timing management and fun guide.

Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and interesting.
