“Attractive and interesting destination”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Faced with the prices of hotels within Vieux Quebec, we chose to stay in the old port and thoroughly enjoyed it. The old port is full of interesting galleries, chic shops, smart boutique hotels and excellent restaurants. It was a superb base for exploring the old city without being caught up in the crowds that sweep through it.

“Quaint shopping and dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

We enjoyed our time walking around the old port and visiting the many shops. Prices are high, but it is nice to be able to purchase items actually made in Canada. There are a lot of pubs and restaurants in the area as well.

“Lovely area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

This area is why we love QC with its beautiful views of the river, quaint hotels and boutiques and delicious restaurants. The tourists are limited in this area too which is a nice reprieve.

“Amazing History!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

I wasn't expecting much when our group decided to head down to the Old Port. I was definitely wrong. Every step we took was like walking through the past. The buildings were amazing and well preserved, and the ambiance was relaxing. The shops were quaint and the restaurants inviting. I wish we had more time to experience the area more, but the trip will resonate with me forever.
