Enjoyed the history shared. The stop on the Island leads to some good views and chocolate. The church was fascinating and the waterfalls amazing. I could so without the stop at the private business for the copper work. Too commercial.

Bonjour, You are probably referring to another guided tours company, since we do not operate tours on the country side. You are right though, Beaupré Coast is amazing. Kindly
