“Great Long Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2010

Quebec City is a great little town for a long weekend. We went in early November which, apparently, is the super low season so there wasn't much going on. But, it's cute and quaint and you really feel like you've stepped into Europe.

“European atmosphere in Quebec City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2010

I visited Montreal, Quebec City, and Toronto in late October. Each place offers a diverse and unique experience, but I must admit that I fancy Quebec City the most. Never have I imagined that a city could be so extravagantly appealing like Quebec City: friendly, well-mannered people, cobblestone streets, petit shops/cafes, vibrant autumn foliage, etc.
In my opinion, the Old City Wall resembles Camelot, the well-known castle of the legendary Merlin the Wizard. In autumn season, each store is filled with autumn decor and lights, transforming the city in the evening to an autumn wonderland. Le Petit Champlain is a brilliant place to visit. The idea of strolling down the street with a hot cafe latte (or other drinks you fancy) seems very hard to resist. For a split second you might think you are in a different world!
Overall, Quebec City has done a great job describing itself as a unique ambience, admired by its visitors. It's classic, charming, and simply breathtaking!
Bonjour Quebec City, a-bientot!

“A delightful visit in "New France"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our two days in Quebec City, inspite of rain the second day. A walking tour was great to get a feel of the area and history [our guide was delightful and has communicated with us twice since we returned home with helpful family history info]. Sidewalk cafes in mid October were pleasant and full during the day; cozy inside in the evening. Biggest disappointment - many museums and other attractions are closed on Monday, but we should have checked and gone to the city another day. On the other hand, two cruise ships were there that day, so one would think the attractions would take that into consieration. Our favorite eating places, Cafe 1640, near Notra Dame cathedral and the visitor center, and extra high marks for a little local, out of the way place, La Buffet Antiques, within walking distance from all the "old town" places--reasonable prices and delicious home cooking.

“Europe in North America?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2010

What a fabulous place. A walled city, wonderful antique buildings, the narrow cobblestone streets, the beautiful churches, a funicular, a beautiful Citadel on the hill, everyone speaking French.....everything about it made us feel we were in Europe. It was absolutely magical and a great starting point to a wonderful cruise that took us across Canadian provinces, US New England states and New York City. But Quebec!! Three days just wasn't enough...have to go back again!!
