“gorgeous and a load of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Quebec has become one of our favorite destinations. We live in Maine, about 7 hair raising hours away (3 trips, 4 moose, blinding snow.....). But its own unique European city with spectacular scenery great food, friendly people, cosmopoitan, just lovely. What a blast.

“Quaint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I can imagine this would be unbearably packed with tourists in summer, but in winter it was lovely. Good to wander through the side streets.

“a walk through history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

A must see, this is the soul of Québec City. Utterly charming, the cobblestone, the stone houses, the understanding of what life was like 400 years ago by the majestic St-Lawrence River. Yet, the old walls are home to some of the city's best inns and restaurants...enjoy !

“Old World Charm and Great Restaurants & Shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Old World charm with great restaurants and good shops reflecting the flavor and culture of Quebec and Canada. Definitely worth a few days to get away - at any time of year.

“Old Quebec is a good place to vist!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

In February I went to Quebec.
Old Quebec is great. There are alot of churches from the 1600s. Also there are not alot of cars because the roads are small. If you like to shop go to rue Saint-Jean it is the shopping street of Quebec. It is one of the oldest cities in Canada. Thank you for taking the time to read my review. I hope you like old Quebec.
