    What to Expect
    Begin this half-day in the country by meeting the guide and the rest of the tour group at the Musée de la civilisation (Museum of Civilization), located in historic Old Québec near the cruise ship pier by the Saint Lawrence River.

    Follow Avenue Royale through the traditional villages and farms of the Beaupre Coast, approximately 15 minutes north of Quebec City. Visit Montmorency Falls, an 83-meter-high waterfall on the Montmorency River (it’s 30 meters higher than Niagara Falls), and the legendary Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, where many a miracle has occurred.

    Additional stops include the Chocolaterie de l'Ile d'Orléans, with 24 flavors of ice cream during the summer season and a wide variety of chocolates made from only the finest ingredients imported from Belgium. At the Cuivres D'Art Albert Gilles, learn about the art of embossing copper, visit two museums and stop by the gift shop for a souvenir.

    We booked this tour the last day of our cruise to New England and Canada because we had not visited Quebec City before. The tour meeting location was a short walk from our cruise ship, which was very convenient. There was no signage as to what tours were leaving and which group

    I'm still on the bus as I write this. It is 4 o'clock and we still haven't been at either the falls or the church. We have been driving around stopping at places where we can spend money at a ice cream store and a copper store. Quebec City is beautiful and we won't be here long.

    Bonjour, the countryside tour is a 5 Hours tour and between each stop you stay on the bus 20 minutes approximately (according to traffic). The stops that you have on this tour are four at the Island of Orleans, where you can go and visit the local Chocolate Shop or just walk around on the island, there is an amazing beach with a stunning view on the river. The stop at the Copper museum is on the way to the Basilica Sainte Anne de Beaupré there you can meet the artisans that decorated the shrine. After that we are stopping at the Waterfall as well. You are right Quebec City is beautiful but this tour is focus on the outskirts that are as stunning as the city is, for your next time you can consider just a City tour or a combination City and Countryside. Best regards, Federica

    We did a ship tour from the Summit. The ship was one of 6 in port that day, so the city tours were so crowded that you had to stand in lines for over an hour. The Hop-On bussus were so crowded that several busses passed by because there were no empty seats. We did a 4 hour

    Bonjour, our countryside tour is leaving everyday at 1 pm, we do not have a departure at 12.30 pm, but on your voucher is suggested to arrive 30 minutes earlier in Place d'Armes,. It is not clear from your review if you had a pick up at the hotel, in that case we probably board you at 12.30 pm to go and pick up other people, and we usually arrive in Place d'Armes 5-10 minutes before 1 pm. As you said then tour was as you expected, we are sorry that just for the shuttle part at the end of it, you would not suggest our company. We thank you for the time that you spent on the review, we are going to improve the shuttle part as it is necessary to all the clients that do want to go back to hotels that are also very far from the city center. Best regards, Federica

    The beginning of the tour started poorly. Total chaos at the pick up point. Buses everywhere, no one coordinating and the weather was atrocious. However once we started, the tour was very good. Jean-Pierre a very good guide. Informative and knowledgeable. We visited five or so
