Whales, Fjords, Nature...a true adventure
The maritime regions of Québec are home to some of the best whale-watching sites in the world. Every year, as many as 200,000 people visit Tadoussac for whale watching. Between May and October, you can find blue whales, the largest animals on the planet, impressive humpbacks, belugas and about 10 other cetaceans.
The Village of Tadoussac became the first fur-trading post in European North America in 1600, eight years before the founding of Québec City. The word "tatouskak" means breast, and refers to the two, rounded hills by the Saguenay fjord and the bay.
Explore Quebec City! This beautiful must-see destination is the heart of French Canada. For a long time a fortified town, the walls that surrounded it still stand the passing of time, encircling the old city's charming streets. Walk through the beautiful wall gates and enter this magical town.

Our itinerary, day by day
Leave Ottawa early in the morning and enjoy the ride to Tadoussac. A couple of stops along the way will be made for you to discover the beauty of the region. Discover Baie-Sainte-Catherine, the festive village of Tadoussac, as well as the beautiful scenery of the Saguenay Fjord.
Today we start the morning with a whale watching tour using a zodiac boat! After we will head back to Quebec City, passing by the Montmorrency Falls.
Once in Quebec City take in the beauty of this French Canadian city.It is certainly a slice of Europe in our own backyard. Walk its streets, visit its bakeries and boutiques. At night enjoy some dancing in one of Quebec City's best night clubs.
Our Sunday will start lazily, perhaps with a cafe-au-lait, accompanied by some crepes. Check out the Observatoire de la Capitale, the planes of Abraham and the many other interesting places in this wonderful town. We will head back to Ottawa around 3 PM.
What our customers say about us:
Round Tours is an amazing company. I have taken their trips skiing, to Montreal, and soon to Toronto. Every time I travel with Round Tours I feel valued and cared for. Carlos and Charlotte seem passionate about what they do, and they truly care that you are having a good time. When visiting Montreal my friend and I were thinking of visiting a museum, but we did not have wifi to check the museums in the area. Charlotte was very kind by personally searching for the best museums and directing us how to get there.This is just one of many examples of how Carlos and Charlotte demonstrate how much they care for you.
The sizing of the tours with Round Tours is absolutely perfect. For the most part all of our groups have been around 50 people, but many times it was less than 50 people. This means that you are able to get a personalized tour of each city. The structure of the tours are good for people who like to do their own thing and for people who want to stay in a group. By providing a loose itinerary with local tour guides, you can truly make the experience unique to your liking. I highly recommend Round Tours to anyone thinking of traveling outside of Ottawa. It is especially good for international students, because the quality of the trips are amazing and the trips are priced nicely. Round Tours is an amazing company with a truly nice and caring staff.
