Quebec is such a wonderful city. It was our second day to visit and we took the bus tour learning so much more about the city. Guide was great. Somehow they did not have our name on the list and it took sometime to get it worked out even though we had our paperwork in hand.

We had a wonderful guide who spoke fluently in English and French and navigated us despite technology difficulties with the loudspeaker. We saw the highlights of the historic city and this enabled us to go back later and walk to the ones we wished to see again.

What a beautiful city!

We truly enjoyed the trip around Quebec City and the narration by the driver. I was amazed that he was able to wrap the bus around all the road construction, which was extensive. The driver was informed, amusing and easy to understand. (Even the digs at Americans were good natured.)

It was Wednesday, must have been Quebec
November 03, 2019
A nice overview of the city, both old and "new" with an interesting, well-versed guide. The bus driver was amazing, also, since he was able to squeeze the behemoth of a bus into the tightest of areas. The tour was a bit rushed in some areas, repetitive in others, but that was expected. We wished the bus had larger, more viewable windows since we missed some of the pointed out architectural features because we couldn't crane our necks in contortionist figurations to see well enough. The guide would get ahead of herself..."on your right [and she'd be opposite it] there's such and so..." and by the time our part of the bus got there she was telling about something else. Over-all, it was a great experience. I feel like we have properly been introduced to Quebec to think about visiting it again when we would have more time to explore areas we saw on this tour.

The guide and itinerary were wonderful, but it got off to a bad start. The electronic ticket clearly stated that one could meet the tour on Dalhousie Street or in the lobby of Chateau Frontenac, which is what we chose to do. The guide, however, was unaware of the lobby meeting place and it was only through great effort on the part of another tour participant at Chateau Frontenac that we finally found the bus parked on a street in back of the hotel. We did like the small bus and enjoyed the beautiful and historic city. I would recommend this IF there were assurances that this was corrected
