The plains of Abraham is a nice place to relax after a lot of walking around we took the long way up, 150 steps and a long boardwalk but i would go that way every time as it has some nice views and is a nice walk on it's own.

We got there too late to go to the museum, we were just passing through on the way to St. John, after dropping stuff off to hotel. We did find a geocache, walk on the boardwalk, have a gelato by the chateau, admire the scenery watch a show beneath the statue to Champlain have a great dinner, and pass out... More

You must take a walk here. It is beautiful. You can start on the boardwalk, head up to the Plains of Abraham and walk the wall around to the Parliament and the new part of the city.

We recently took the bus tour of The Plains of Abraham. Before boarding the bus we watched a series of short videos giving the history of the Plains and the battles that took place. The bus tour guide played the role of Abraham Martin's wife. She was fun and made the tour very interesting. Highly recommended.

The tour was informative and great for kids 5 and up. Bus ride was fun and you begin to understand the Franco File position.

We did the package for all three activities (bus tour, movie/museum and the tower tour). The price is very reasonable. The bus tour was informative but the a little on the cheesy theatrical side. As I have stated before, I don't care for that kind of stuff much, but some enjoy it. The movies were entertaining (for museum movies). The... More

Basically it's a well kept field, has beautiful gardens as well. Some really nice statues. I think there is also a re-enactment of the battle which would have been good to see but we didn't come across any information on it

A beautiful walk around a historic park. Incredible (high) views of the river and city. Nice walkways that eventually connect to the Chateau.

We took the bus ride through the plains and it was very worthwhile. What you get is a period dressed Frenchman playing the role of Abrham, the farmer who owned the plains at the time of the battle. The staff member who did this provided a very entertaining ride through the grounds sharing a lot if the historical details, all... More

This is an attraction that could take all day. First, the city park is beautiful. There are gardens, fields, and paths minutes away from the buzzing Old Quebec. Second, to get into the museum and the Martello Towers in the park, there is a fee. For $15 (or $37/family), you get an interactive tour - guided by an ipad -... More
