The actual boat ride was wonderful and a highlight of my entire visit to Quebec City. And the Cathedral was beautiful. But it was confusing with the return trip being by bus. I thought we were doing everything by boat. The falls was blah as we couldn't get close and there was construction or something going on with no explanation why there were dump trucks and machinery in front of the falls. We were supposed to visit a "chocolate factory" to watch chocolate being made, but were taken to a small house that was only a gift shop that sold chocolate.
