Great two hour tour from the Quebec riverfront of Quebec City , pleasant relaxing trip, all sites very well explained in both English and French , good fast food and drink , lots of seats inside and outside and yes, you do get to see the Falls as well. Then close to Quebec City streets with lots of restaurants and gift shops. Very nice way to unwind.

This 2 hour tour down the river is a pleasant way to relax, get an overview of some of the history of Quebec and be entertained all at the same time. The city looks quite different from the water than from the land.
We had a guide that did an excellent job in English and French , told History and jokes equally well and kept us entertained from start to finish. He was dressed in character (17th c cartographer) and shared the beauty of Quebec City as we watched the Falls of Montmorency and Quebec skyline pass by.

We were lucky enough to have a very successful whale watching trip with AML and in great weather.

You are met by a dedicated representative at pickup (in our case Coralie at Place d’Armes, Quebec City) and taken by coach to the point of departure. This is some 3hrs away so the coach driver provides an informative and amusing commentary on the way, in both French and English (ours was Yves who has a great sense of humour). You get to learn about the various whales that may be seen, and you are told honestly that the typical magazine photo of a whale slapping its tail or diving from the water is very rare. Plus you will not be able to approach closer than a few hundred metres unless the whale decides to approach you!

The route takes you through some lovely countryside where you can see many traditional buildings and other sights on the way, possibly even a moose if you’re lucky. Due to the length of the coach journey there is a comfort break provided so you can use the WC and pick up refreshments. The coach also has a WC on board.

We opted for the larger boat which provided a higher 360’ viewpoint and a more comfortable ride overall, but the zodiac craft look good if you want a more exhilarating ride across the wake of other craft. There’s a bar if needed and multiple levels where you can get out of the sun, or rain if there is some. A running commentary is given by the crew to keep you informed of where the whales are, then (hopefully) you start to see the spouts and more. The captain tries to provide an all round view by turning the boat favourably so that everyone gets a view.

Would definitely recommend.

(P.s. for photographers a good zoom is recommended)

Tonight we did a cruise on the river on the AML Louis Joliette. There was music on the boat for the school graduation party. We as adults stayed in the teachers lounge and we hung around. Boat is very nice, staff was friendly and great.

I would strongly recommend any activities there with this company.

For a hot summer day this is a lovely river trip offering some great photo opportunities and soem good commentary.

I would suggest heading for the front of the boat when you board for the best shots.
There is a good sighting of the Montmorency Falls and good pictures of Quebec

We had a great time on this cruise up and down the river. The information provided by the young man in period costume was very informative and well delivered. This is a great thing for the entire family.
