Return Details

Returns to original departure point
This Québec City sightseeing river cruise departs from the Chouinard Pier. Climb aboard the AML Louis Jolliet, a 170-foot cruise ship named after the famous French-Canadian explorer. Choose from any of the three distinctive exterior terraces or settle into the air-conditioned dining area. Either way, the views from the Saint Lawrence River will be breathtaking.

Enjoy this entertaining and educational sightseeing tour of Québec City and the surrounding countryside, cruising from the Cap Diamant to Montmorency Falls. The Cap Diamant, or Cape Diamond, is the official name of the cape and promontory on which Québec City is located. It’s formed by the confluence of a bend in the Saint Lawrence River to the south and east and the much smaller Saint-Charles River to the north. Montmorency Falls is an 83-meter-high waterfall, an impressive 30 meters higher than iconic Niagara Falls.

Some of the sites to be seen include the historic Fairmont Le Château Frontenac hotel, Canada’s most-beloved hotel and the most-photographed hotel in the world and the historical island borough of Île d’Orléans.

There’s also something to be learned on this live-narrated cruise. Find out about the history of Québec City, the Saint Lawrence River and all the aforementioned points of interest along the way from the enthusiastic, costumed guide, dressed as Louis Jolliet himself.

A variety of beverages and snacks are available for purchase on board the boat.

Anne our guide was so friendly and she didn’t just spout off facts. She made it interesting. It was like talking and walking with an old friend. We were paired with another family of 4 so a nice small group of 8. We enjoyed this much more than the harbour tour. Nana is 81 and she did great on the walk. Anne gave us a lot of great information. Would totally recommend the tour.

Sound quality was poor. Really hard to hear narration. Speakers need to be located in all sections of the boat or earphone provided to those who want them

Honestly it was a very nice experience, activity to attend with my kids. They are 14 and 9 years old. They enjoyed every minute of it. Of course They loved the fact we could eat on board :) Only wish They had more choices but overall it was nice. The tour guide was also veeeery nice. He even took a picture with my kids. The staff is nice, helpful.

A wonderful way to see Quebec City! There should be a narrator on the first floor because it was difficult to hear him from upstairs.
