“Very Enjoyable Day”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We have never been to Quebec City before so we planned tours before we left home.

We took a Two hour City Tour in the morning which was excellent and a 90 minute boat tour in the afternoon which I would rate average.

The tour company picked us up and the hotel AND brought us back which I see as a super benefit. They ran on schedule with no waiting.

The City Tour took us all around and had one restroom stop. The tour guide, Francois, was very helpful. He gave the tour in a French and in English. I understood it all and appreciated his effort to be clear. Loved it all.

The boat tour was hectic. Very slow boarding. Difficult gangplank to go up. No pre boarding for impaired people. The tour guide, dressed up as someone from the 17th century, was close to impossible to understand. His words ran together and I understood only 25% of what he said. The trip was enjoyable. Sunny 75 degree day. Nice to see the city and surrounding areas from the water. We just don't know what he said. And best if all, our shuttle was waiting for us when we disembarked.

I would take it again. A wheelchair would be difficult as they would have to carry it on. They did that for two young people on our cruise.

“Great fun!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Patrick, the Irish Frenchman tour guide and Remi the amazing bus driver made this a great 2 hour tour. Patrick was very knowledgeable and filled the voids with humourous anecdotes and personal insights.

I learned so much about Quebec City and it's rich history just in that 2 hour time period that we want to go back and spend a few days there to explore some more!

“Knowledgeable guide but not worth the money”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 children) booked the two-hour history tour. While my son was completely bored, the rest of us learned some interesting facts. However, the knowledge that we gained was not worth the $100 that it costs for our family. It was nothing that we could not have discovered with a day of walking and Google.

“Good tour, but could be better”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

There was not enough humor on this tour. The bus frequently got ahead of schedule and caused waiting in the hot sun for long periods of time. If you "hop of" there is no chance of getting back on the upper deck when you hop back on. Views from the bottom are very limited. For the price, more should be included or the tour more dynamic - or useful for more days.

“A tour guide with a sense of humour”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Gave me a potted history of old Quebec City, places which I may not have explored for myself. The tour guide was brilliant. One of his sayings: two seasons in Quebec - winter and construction (it's everywhere)
