What people are saying about Quebec Province

A must-have experience if you are in the area. The best way to park on the lower end of the falls and take the cable car up to the falls and walk across. The upper part has lots of food options and entertainment places. Worth every dollar spent.

Went with my teenagers for a session. Staff was extremely helpful. Enjoyed playing group games but took a bit of time to figure out each game. Wish we had booked the hour session (we booked 30 mins).

What a fantastic ride on the La Grande Roue! We rode the wheel at dusk and got the best view of Montreal! I definitely recommend for all Montreal visitors!

Very pretty, even though it lasts a few seconds and the lines are huge. They should put a rail for the sleds to get on

Beautiful view and fun ride in a comfortable gondola.
