It had been raining on and off. Driver hastily dried all the top deck seats for passengers and was an interested, engaging host. During the ride we discovered a street filled with people and restaurants. We went back to that street for dinner and ran in to the FIRST live music and it was fabulous!! We stayed through dinner and to closing, making many new friends. The tour was informative and enjoyable.

Driver was great! She took us to both the top and bottom of the falls. Super nice. The city tour was a bit repetitive for me but I’d also already been on another tour so there’s that. The falls were definitely the best part!

We really liked the experience of visiting our beautiful city of Quebec ❤️ The host taught us a lot of information about the history of our beautiful city of Quebec ❤️ The host also has a good humorous side with his little related anecdotes to the Nordiques .... Marcel "Obus" The driver is also very nice
The guide was knowledgeable and hilarious - I would highly recommend taking this tour as it gives you a good overview of the geography of the city, and the elevated view from the top of the bus is great for getting photos.
The one-hour city tour was great. Especially on a warm summer day. Saw the key places and it gives one an idea of places where you may want to go to explore them further.
having a nice view from the top of the bus and learning new things.
