The tour was really nice and they are very accommodating. We missed our original booking because we were late but they still honored it and allowed us to go on the tour the next day. I just wish we had more time on The island and on the falls and just totally skid the Copper Museum Tour.

Interesting, perky, an excellent driver-guide, but we expected that we would go upstairs on a gondola to Montmorency, but this was not included. Therefore, only the bottom resembled without the thrill of the top. And the bridge over the waterfall was also not hit for this reason. I liked everything else very much. Island, museum, basilica.

It was a joyful experience. The guide was funny, knowledgeable, and kind. He was very clear with how much time we had to explore each location. The Montmorency falls were beautiful and just outside of town. I do recommend buying the trolly up to the top to explore the falls closer and walk across the suspension bridge.
