What people are saying about Montreal

I loved this excursion and felt it was well worth the money spent! I was really worried that the brunch would be served Buffett style and we would all be herded together in long lines to grab our plate and utensils and then have to serve ourselves. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! Instead, a designated server was assigned to each section of the ship who was responsible for taking your order and waiting on each guest. So it felt like we were being served in a 4 star restaurant by our own very attentive server. The menu itself was structured for a diverse taste palate and the food was absolutely delicious! If you have a limited budget and are looking for an excursion that provides excellent food and a view of Montreal from the St. Lawrence River, this is the one to take. There was no narrative provided of the various sights, which some may have felt was missing from this tour. However, with such a large group of people and so many separate parties, it would have been difficult to hear.

Great food and drinks. Service was incredible. Very comfortable and 10000 percent worth it. Espec5 if you're staying for the full 6 hours.
