“great city on foot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

We did not take a tour but have to say this is the most beautiful city we have ever seen. It was like driving to France! The old walled city has nice elevation changes and some of the most beautiful old architecture you will ever see.

“Walking Tour thro Historic, Old Quebec”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Although our tour of beautiful Quebec occurred late last year, the memories are still sharp and enjoyable. We had the best tour guide Christine Gagnon, she made the history of the city come alive, her sense of humour and clear diction only enhanced the experience. This is someone who loves her country, her city and people, she ought to be cloned. Christine, keep up the excellent work.... so sorry for submitting this review several months later.

“Quebec city / Best Christmas Newyears vacation ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

Quebec City is a destination that needs no planning. You only need show up and enjoy this wonderful City/adventure. The shops, Resturants, Hotels and sights are all there for your Adventure. Thousands/millions of Travelers tour Quebec city every year so you won't be alone. Even with the temps in the single digits for the winter festivals there are still thousand of tourist on the streets strolling until the wee hours of the morning, and than there's the Newyears Eve street festival on (Grand Allee) and fireworks show, Amazeing. Grand Allee is the (Grand Case) of Quebec city, it's a street thats loaded with Fine Dinning resturants and night clubs. This is a great night out for anyone that loves night life,and theres something here for everyone. However because of the cold weather, be sure to pack Heavy winter boots, Wool socks, thermo under armor body suits and GooseDown outer wear. Because of the wind off the St.charles river and the St.lawrence seaway, the temps can and do drop below zero at any given time. But this is all part of the fun because the Pub's are always open for you to warm up in. During the winter Holiday season I would mark this as a 5nt-6day trip and during the summer months if you tour Quebec city and the country side you may want to spend 10nts-11days. During the summer months a 5nt stay in the city and 5nt stay in the country side should be enough time to see all of the sights, unless you choose to spend a week in Montreal witch is only 2hours from Quebec city and thats another Amazeing city also that takes no planning, once again you only need showup and enjoy. Montreals street festivals start in late spring and continue on thruout the summer season until late August. If you choose to drive be for warned that Quebec,Toronto,Montreal and Ottawa are citys that are noted for their strolling side walks and out door open air sidewalk cafe's, so you may concider the Train or Air travel for these destinations. Most hotels start at 15.00 per day for parking fee's and can go as high as 30.00 per day. So you may want to leave the car at home. (Happy travels to all).

“Lots to see and easy to walk around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We visited from a cruise ship and Quebec City was VERY easy to see on our own. Suggestions:
1) the pier is downtown, so everything is accessible and the city has lots of beautiful sights (in fact, a few of the main shopping areas are only accessible on foot, no cars permitted). The city has a large hill that goes to upper town so plan accordingly if you have any walking difficulties
2) download a couple walking tours (of upper and lower town) before you go (run a web-search for Quebec City walking tours), and get a city street map at the pier terminal information center to take and use as a cross reference
3) take good rain gear -- it is still an easy city to see in the rain
4) the information center at the pier is a great resource for any other questions you have (also, the terminal has free wifi if you need it)
5) many people speak English, but you will also be regularly greeted on the street with "bonjour" by the locals ...kinda cool. We found the city to be very friendly.
6) if you want to take a trip to the waterfall, the city bus goes 2-3 times each hour (it takes 20-30 min to get there). BE SURE to ask the information desk for the right bus number and cost. You can get Canadian change by purchasing something (with US dollars) at a local store. They generally gave change in Canadian dollars, but be sure to get the proper coins in change if you need them for the bus.
7) if you decide to stay in town and walk around, you can go into Chateau Frontenac (I was told there is a tour you can purchase, but we didn't look into it), walk down the boardwalk from Chateau Frontenac to the Citadel (the whole boardwalk overlooks the St Lawrence river so the stroll is beautiful), walk around the Citadel and even walk through the large park next to the Citadel (all in upper town), then do your shopping in lower town on your way back to the ship. The main shopping area is below the Chateau, between the river and the Chateau (right next to the Funicular)
--No matter what you choose, it was a wonderful place to see. ENJOY Quebec City on your own!
