It was beautiful sunny but very hot day. We were sitting on the top upper deck, but like some other people, after a while we had to move down indoor coz it's too hot. Better to arrive early like 40 minutes before, so you could choose your sitting preference with the best view. It was good experience to see Quebec city and surroundings from the river.

We went as a family, everyone enjoyed being out on the boat. We found the trip exciting and something different for us. The only thing was that we didn’t hear much history or much to see. The have an amazing waterfall that everyone wanted to take a picture of and the Chateau was at a perfect view for pics.

This is a great way to see the city outside of the city. Historical perspective takes on additional significance of those whose river actions shaped the history of Quebec. Geographical perspectives unseen from land interesting. I would do this tour again and again when visiting the city. It is relaxing and interesting.
