It's definitely worth the day tour. Can be really crowded when I went on a hot summer day. Would like to stay for a night or two next time. And maybe visit in the wintertime.

Loved this day trip! Driver and tour guides were very informative. This tour gives you a taste of Quebec city and Montmorency Falls. Quick trip for shopping and exploring and you get back to Mtl at around 8:00-8:30pm. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed this tour...our guide, Katya, was knowledgeable and friendly making it a very pleasant experience. The pit stops we made on the way and back were not great but I guess that was what was available. Getting a ride to and from our hotel was definitely a plus.
