Both of the hotels we stayed at in Montreal and Quebec worked well. Our food tour in Montreal was a favorite for all four of us. The guide was exceptional and the food was wonderful and different. Okay, I'm not a pureed liver person, so I passed on that, but that's just me. If I liked liver, I'm sure it would have been great. The ride on the inspirational ferris wheel was fun! The tour we did of Old Quebec was also very enlightening and again, the guide was fun and very informative. UBER and cabs worked great for getting around when we weren't walking. The Five-course dinner cruise was okay, but I think I would skip it on another trip. I enjoyed the food on the food tour more, and while the lights at night were pretty, I'd rather see the shoreline in the day time. We took a cab to the waterfall and enjoyed that. Carl was very helpful and Kim Kim again came through for us.
The hotel was located in the downtown area which was a very busy area and hard to find an grocery stores, but it was convenient, clean , very comfortable, and the people at the hotel were always helpful.
The big circular restaurant at the top made it easy to find when we have been our walking. The location was conventient to everything we wanted to see. I loved our room. Beautiful view out of two sides since we had a corner window. Looked out at the lights of the city and the river.
This was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Canada. The Food Tour included six interesting, tasty examples of local food, and they were DELICIOUS and fun to try. Our guide was exceptional. She was fun, knowledgable, and tuned in to our needs.
We enjoyed having some open time to just head out and see what we could see. Stopping by local shops and restaurants was fun. We had a fun time riding the Inspirational Ferris Wheel. Beautiful weather.
Our guide was a fun guy, and we enjoyed being in a group of just the four of us. He had done a group of 45 the day before, and I would. not have been interested in a group that large.
