Our tour included St. Anne de Beaupre, Montmorency Falls, the Copper place and Isle d’Orleans where we got to enjoy the chocolate/ice cream shop. Our driver was Alain and he was fabulous. His knowledge of the various sites is phenomenal and his sense of humour is fabulous. The timing of the tour was great as we had ample time at each stop. We would recommend this tour to everyone even if you know the area as there were many interesting facts shared by our driver.

Our guide, Garry, was very informative and rather humorous!The amount of time allotted at each place was pretty spot on but we would have like a few more minutes at the Copper Studio. We also would have liked a tour that covered more of I’le d’Orleans and made more stops there.

This tour is an excellent way to experience the outer edges of Quebec City. While the city itself is beautiful, a visit there isn't complete until you've seen its fascinating hinterland. The waterfalls are the clear highlight of this tour, but the church and surrounding ancient settlers' farmhouses are worth visiting and learning about. You'll learn lots on this interesting tour, and the guide is extremely entertaining and knowledgeable. History is always best when delivered with a laugh.
