Quebec City Walking Tour

1,169 reviews
Filled with narrow lanes and pedestrian-only streets, the historic center of Quebec City is best explored on foot. This guided walking tour ensures you won’t miss the details that make the city so fascinating. Take advantage of Quebec City’s layout by following a downhill route from beginning to end, as a guide shares stories from the fortified city that’s the beating heart of French Canada.

Great area to explore, even on a windy cold day! We enjoyed walking around in the snow and looking out at the icy river from a great vantage point. Our visit was in early December, so the winter sports rental options were not open yet. We went through the small museum and looked at some of the artifacts, but we mostly just enjoyed being outdoors in the snow!

We had to climb up 400 stairs to get to the plains as we were down by the river when we decided to go visit the plains but it was worth the climb (if you walk from the upper city/chateau Frontenac you won't have the climb all those stairs) we didn't walk the full length as it was quite hot on that day but we really enjoyed the view and the beautiful gardens. It is especially enjoyable on sunny days with a small breeze!

This site of a battle is now a lush green park. We drove some of the roads through it. You could almost believe that you were out in the wilds!

Hiking on the Plains of Abraham provided a panoramic view of Old Quebec City. It is breathtaking and will give pause to the beauty of it all. The British were fighting the French and Indian War in America and the Seven Years War in Europe at the time of the battle on September 13, 1759. During the battle. Both General Wolfe and the Marquis de Montcalm died of wounds. The Plains extend to the Citadelle of Quebec and the wall of Quebec along a plateau above the St. Lawrence River.
