The driver was friendly and knowledgeable. The bus arrived for pick up at the time that was published. We boarded the bus and left at the published time as well. The bus driver had a good sense of humour and was very knowledgeable about Quebec history. Our first stop was the Basillica of St Anne de Beaupre which is a beautiful historical church. We also stopped at a copper shop where the family run business creates artful copper pieces by hand. It is a dying art and this shop is the only remaining of its kind in North America. The art is still taught at a school in France. We also went to Ile d’Orleans where we stopped at a Chocolate Shop. Our final stop was Montmorency Falls which apparently are over 100 feet taller than Niagara Falls although the falls are ver narrow. After this stop we returned to our meeting place at the proper time. The tour was an excellent way to learn about the history of Quebec City in a short time. Our tour was conducted in English.

amazing trip, excellent driver, Gary. Saw loads, choc shop fantastic, copper production place wonderful, the falls spectacular, the Basilica spectacular.

Très belle journée. Nous aurions aimé avoir un peu plus de temps aux chutes et moins à l’église. Guide expérimenté. Bon rapport qualité/prix.
