Travel Diary: Mt. Montmorency Falls

Thursday, November 06, 2014

The second day we stayed in Quebec, we visited Montmorency Falls. It was about a half hour drive from Old Quebec City. We thought of riding the local bus and probably would have save a ton of money  but we were worried about our  time.

One thing about traveling on a cruise ship  is that you are very limited to time. Everyday you stop at a a new place,  however, your time is also cut short. You don't get to spend a whole day to wonder the place or even get to do all the activities you wanted.  Everyday you are to report back to the ship between 4-6pm.

The good thing is that you get to see and experience new places everyday. So for those who are wanting to check off places in your  bucket list, taking a cruise is definitely the one to do. You probably could check off 5-8 countries in a two week period.

In most cruises, there are always cab drivers and tour guides waiting outside of the ship. As soon as you exit, numbers of them floods the area waiting for you to pick them for tours or  be their tour guides to whatever places you want  to explore.

We met an Indian, Lebanese and Canadian cab driver that speaks 4 languages. (English, Arabic, French and Spanish). He was so nice and kind and made our visit to Mt. Montmorency Falls enjoyable and educational. Tho, it did take us awhile to negotiate his price. We ended up paying him $150 for at least 4 hours. It was a bit pricey but worth it since there were no other transportation other than the local bus.
