3 very interesting visits, outside the city in particular the basilica of Sainte-Anne de Beaupré. The Montmorency Falls are spectacular and also worth the detour. Finally, the island of Orleans presents another facet of Quebec life with a delicious discovery: soft ice cream coated with frozen chocolate. Also enriching the visit of the Gilles copperworks. In short, an excursion to recommend.

Great tour! Guide was excellent with great commentary throughout and plenty of local information too! Particularly enjoyed the stories of houses on way to St Anne's! I think 20- 30 mins would suffice in St Anne's and maybe another island stop would be possible then. I was disappointed the cable car wasn't an option at the Falls due to time constraints but it is possible to easily walk the 487 steps in the hour. Great trip overall though, thanks to your super guide! ( Greg I think )

A lovely “hop on hop off” way to see 4 sites that encompass art, history, architecture, natural beauty, and a sweet stop at a chocolate shop. I loved our tour guide, Jean, who was both clever and informative in both French & English. I could have spent more time at the waterfall, and less time at the church, but otherwise, I truly enjoyed this tour. It’s a good touristy bang for your buck.
