Looking at options for our NCL Gem stop in Saguenay in September 2019

Have found these two excursions we are considering...

Has anyone taken these tours or used these tour companies?

 

Okwari Adventures - $72 (?Canadian) includes short hike Rivière-à-Mars canyon/Excursion on lake in Rabaska canoe/Black bear observation (from safety of a tower)

Saguenay Guided Tours

$104 Canadian 24 passenger minibus tour

https://www.saguenayguidedtours.com/new-page/saguenay-shore-excursions/saguenay-shore-excursions/

They also will do "private tours" $719 (6 people) $825 (7) $930 (8), etc -Canadian dollars

Or any review/feedback/opinions? on NCL excursion (we're on the GEM in Sept)

Hiking Saguenay National Park (4 Hrs, $85), but the hiking is only 1.5 miles ("...recommended for advanced hikers with a rise in height of 450 ft and 500 steps to climb.").

Wondering if they're over stating the advanced... Sounds very similar to hikes we've done in Phoenix, so believe it would be doable for us.

Thanks for the information

Just very steep for the 32?

Did you enjoy the hike? 

We loved it and would do it again, it is not that steep just a lot of rocky steps .

Jim do you remember the trail's name?  I think we might rent a car and drive to the park and hike ourselves.   With 4 people it's much more economical.

I booked this but now reading the comments I am not sure my mom will be able to handle this.  I did compare it to Watkins Glen Falls in NY (500 elevation, also 1.5 miles but 800 steps and she did good so now IDK!

Thanks for responding I know it's an older post.  I think I will change the excursion. Was the terrain really bad?
