This trip was exactly as promised. A comfortable day in the Laurentians visiting a few small towns and enjoying wonderful scenery. The guide Richard and driver Serge were both excellent- considerate and with very useful tips at several points of the journey- from where to eat to what to do. I won’t detail the itinerary except to say it was well chosen. The time at each stop was appropriate and pick up and return to the hotel was efficient. After reading some of the reviews before booking I was hesitant but they are not reflective of my experience. This was a highlight of my visit to Quebec and I enjoyed it immensely as the dozens of spectacular photographs demonstrate.

In two hours, Carlos gave us a complete overview of old Montreal. We were even able to take advantage of some tips, or tricks, to discover unusual or iconic places (as Carlos says). The information was extensive, both geographical and historical, even anecdotal. In addition, Carlos is very friendly and adapts to our requests and questions. Very well. Really very good. I recommend. Without hesitation.

A very extensive walk through the old town, take the metro and visit a fresh food market. In retrospect, good tips for eating out and exhibitions!

A fabulous day out, with many short stops on the way in delightful villages that I hadn’t heard of. Very well organised and well commentated.

An interesting visit led by a very friendly guide who was able to make himself available for us longer than expected. Thanks to him !
