The English tour starts at 10:15. We started lining up at 10:00 at Abe's sign outside. In addition to the plastic tickets they give you, your receipt also needs to be scanned. It needs to be scanned again if you plan to visit Mortello Tower. Five minutes before the bus tour ends, you can opt to skip the rest to... More

Gorgeous and extensive park. When we ere here, this was the setting for the main stage of the Quebec Music Festival. As this is a huge park, 102,000 attended the Rolling Stones concert. When not a concert ground, take a stroll. It's lovely.

It really is just a field surrounded by historical buildings, fortifications, cannons. Need to know the layout and history to be able to see it, imagine it. Meaningful place (or just a nice green park), depends on the visitor.

One would never know this was once a battlefield. It is green and rolling and much like a park with a wide variety of trees and foliage. We were here for the Rolling Stones show along with 93,000 friends! The show was great and well run.

The plains are beautiful to walk around but the government run bus tour of the place needs better planning. Tourists, like myself, usually have a small window of time in a city and they should be able to book a seat on a tour bus. That is not the case with the bus tour of the Plains of Abraham. I... More

If this is your first visit, purchase the three site combo ticket ($37C) to get a the Plains of Abraham bus tour, Martello Tower tour and museum entry. The Battles museum exhibit is small, not more than 30-45 minutes is needed to explore the exhibition. A guided, interactive iPad tour complete with augmented reality is included with the price for...

We love the Plains of Abraham. It's a great open space where you can take a stroll and kids can run around. If you happen to be there on July 1 (Canada Day) or July 3 (Quebec Day), find a spot to sit on the lawn to enjoy outstanding fireworks displays. The Plains sit right at the edge of Old... More

It was just great to stretch our legs after driving down from the Saguenay region. The gardens are lovely and you can visit the museum of fine arts - or just enjoy the sculptures on the exterior of the museum. Be sure to take in the sights by the Grey terrace.

If you stop for a visit of Quebec City and you are spending more than one day, then you must see the Plains of Abraham, an extremely large park, located minutes from the Old Quebec. You can access this park from a few points: streets off Grande Allée, or from the Citadel of Quebec. But you can also get there... More
