Take the Tour with Abraham

This is the second time we've been on this tour. Abraham is fun and informative. It's a beautiful park too.

A lovely spot for jogging yet so full of momentous history. If only the French had not lost to the Brits in 1759, perhaps there would have been no American Revolution in 1776

The history of all that Quebec went through over the years was amazing. We took a little tour and learned quite a bit.

so much history here, you can still see some of the mounds they dug 250 years ago during the battles.

This is a beautiful park offering different views of Quebec, in particular Parliament. Kids can run crazy and climb on the cannons. Some seniors might have problems negotiating the numerous stairs.

Very nice view overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Nice place to visit, but can easily be done in your car and doesn't take more than an hour or so.

If you like history or are in Quebec, then this is a good place to visit. I will probably not be travelling for more than 2 hours to visit this though

This was a lot of fun! A lot to see. Definitely sign up for a tour. Our tour guide was terrific, playing the part with a great sense of humor. Everyone was very helpful! Can be a lot of walking but it is beautiful!

Views are amazing, canons are real, even dates are still showing on most of them on the side - must have been crazy times back in the days, long narrow paths, most of the walls around have been fixed, but you can easily understand the reasoning behind it, and extrapolate the needs and difficult times of the soldiers back then...

Grab a loaf of bread, some cheese and a bottle of wine for lunch or dinner here. There are outdoor concerts in the summer. Plenty of history, gardens, cannons and statues. Plus some outstanding views. A great urban oasis.
