What to Expect
Start with pickup at your Montreal hotel or at a central meeting point, then board a climate-controlled coach for the trip to Québec City, passing through the dense forests that line the St. Lawrence River. The tour begins where French Canada was born, in Québec City’s Old City, offering cobblestone streets and historic buildings amid its stone fortifications. Next, continue to Montmorency Falls, where the Montmorency River drops 272 feet (83 meters) towards the St. Lawrence. In the afternoon, enjoy free time to browse Old City boutiques, sample local cuisine in cafes, or just enjoy the scenery from the city walls. This full-day tour concludes with the return trip to Montreal and drop-off at the original departure point.

Loved this day trip! Driver and tour guides were very informative. This tour gives you a taste of Quebec city and Montmorency Falls. Quick trip for shopping and exploring and you get back to Mtl at around 8:00-8:30pm. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed this tour...our guide, Katya, was knowledgeable and friendly making it a very pleasant experience. The pit stops we made on the way and back were not great but I guess that was what was available. Getting a ride to and from our hotel was definitely a plus.
