Wonderful experience, good customer service. Missed my appointment due to traffic driving into Quebec City and just a call got my appointment moved to a later time. The narrator does know what he is doing and makes it really fun. By the way it was my second time and will sure go again when ever I am in Quebec City. Thanks for making it easy to enjoy myself

This was a very informative cruise! Super relaxing and enjoyable. Our guide was great, he was well spoken and knew lots of extra little tidbits! We walked down but from watching the parking situation while we were waiting I would recommend arriving in lots of time if you need to drive. Overall a great touristy thing to do!

The boat ride is an enjoyable experience. It is helpful to get there early as you may need to exchange your voucher for physical tickets. I would try to get a spot in the shade if possible. We got drinks and enjoyed the short cruise. We saw lots of landmarks and the guide was knowledgable and friendly.
