We enjoyed a private tour on a sunny Wednesday morning and found a great way to see the city. Yves was very friendly and took us up and down the river in the zodiac, a small but very stable boat which allows great access to areas you wouldn't be able to see without having your own. His knowledge of the... More

Our 11 yr old daughter chose this activity and it was a great idea! Yves gave us a private tour with a great monologue about the history of the St. Lawrence including some interesting sites along the river. We visited many different spots and he was able to answer all our questions. Fun time with the family, great trip!

We found Yves after being pointed in his direction by the hosts at our B&B. A private tour in his little boat did not cost much more than the group tour scheduled for later so we took the opportunity to have the boat to ourselves. It was a perfect boat ride. Yves was a great tour guide and very familiar... More

We had booked a semi-private tour, but as no one else had booked we were lucky enough to have a private tour for the price of semi-private. All the safety gear is provided and our valuables were kept safe in a dry bag. Yves was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. Even took some photos of us in... More

We went out for an excursion with Yves on the St. Lawrence river and had a great time. Yves knew a lot of the maritime history of the St. Lawrence and discussed the various ships we passed. He talked about historic battles and naval strategies of the British as well as the Il d' Orleans and the population there. We... More

We wanted something more than a river cruise on a big boat with a big anonymous crowd. Yves' Zodiac trip was the answer. He took us out on his black Zodiac up and down the river and pointed out sights and told stories the entire time. We picked up some neat river history and current events too. The tide was... More

Thanks to Tourisme Quebec and TA reviewers for getting Yves Cossette on our radar! What a great morning on the river! Yes, you can arrange a tour by e-mail, he'll send you a map of where to meet him, and show up right on time. We had great views of the city and Chutes Montmorency and Ile D'Orleans, plus a... More
