The bus tour for the Montmorency Falls included a stop at a historical home and a stop at the maple sugar shack. The falls were beautiful! We were driven to the bottom of the falls then rode the cable car to the top of the falls. Walking across the bridge of the falls allowed us to experience the power of the falls and the major turbulence of the water. At the plantation house gift shop, we were served and enjoyed hot tea and tea cakes.
The tour of the maple sugar shack was so interesting and the candy was delicious! The tour guide shared such interesting information of how the maple sugar is harvested and processed. The maple sugar candy made a nice souvenir to take home too!
The historical home visited on this tour used to be occupied by a surgeon. The home was furnished with period furniture and a gentleman dressed in period costume shared interesting information about the area and the home and it's history.
This was a good excursion and very enjoyable.

Montmorency Falls is a lovely photo opportunity but lots of people and not enough time to walk/hike closer to the fall. Facility adjacent to the Falls is clean, bright and offers washrooms and convenience store.

We took an excursion the 1st day which sucked. They drove us around town and pointed out the sights. First stop was a lookout in Battlefield Park for 20 minutes. Overcast and not a great view with inadequate bathroom facilities. Next stop was the Frontenac which was 20 minutes of rushing around to see what you could since most of the hotel was off limits to non-guests. I did get to sneak into a bathroom at the Frontenac and it was a GREAT bathroom. Last and final stop was Montmorency Falls which again was 20 or 30 minutes. Barely enough time to walk across to the other side of the falls and back. We tried to make it to the giant staircase on the far side of the falls and barely made it back in time.

We saw the falls the Isle of Orleans and a Sugar Shack. We enjoyed the falls but the rest was kind of oh-hum.

Pretty spectacular falls. We went to both the upper falls and the visitor center at the base. Very nice.
