We had a great time on this cruise up and down the river. The information provided by the young man in period costume was very informative and well delivered. This is a great thing for the entire family.

The maitre d’ at our hotel made this reservation for us beforehand & luckily they did as the late morning cruises sell out quickly. The tour is in both French & English. The host is engaging & you learn about Quebec history.

Yes, there is parking at the pier, and I don't recall the spaces down there ever being filled during the evening hours.
