5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Loved the old city, such a beautiful place and great little shops. Keep a lot of history in the old part, that's what makes it so wonderful!

“Quaint and lovely views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

very walkable town. It was freezing and snowy so couldn't spend much time outside but we went in a different direction every day and enjoyed the galleries, shops and restaurants.

“Something Different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Old Quebec is a very quaint, picturesque area. Most of the shops and restaurants front onto the narrow streets of the city and one can spend the day exploring. There is a great tourist information center which offers tours and maps of the city. Beautiful architect can be seen all around the city and from my experience the people are pretty friendly. One thing to note; there are some streets that are very steep and pushing a stroller around the city will be a good work out.

“Absolutely beautiful at Christmastime!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We loved our trip to Quebec City! What a beautiful city especially in the winter with the snow and Christmas lights. It felt like we were in Europe! It's very hilly so if you have a hard time walking around, take one of the bus tours to see the city and countryside. You won't want to miss anything! The restaurants are great with so many options so ask around for the best ones. Would love to visit again in the summer or fall. Love this city!

“A delightful walk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

The old city is all the charm you could want. Wear good shoes as there are some steep climbs.
It mostly shops, hotels and restaurants in an almost Disney-like setting.
