“Second time here, never disappointed”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

We visited once in the fall and once in the winter, the city is awesome. So much to do, so quaint and yes very European. Love the history and the basilica was the best church have ever seen. As far as winter goes this is pretty far north, exactly what I expected, in February. My wife and I have done a bus tour first from Montreal. This time we stayed a weekend
And thoroughly enjoyed a tour of old Quebec, and secondly toured the countryside go Quebec. We also stayed a night at the Hotel de glacé, a gift from our children , awesome experience!

“very pretty”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We drove around at night and the streets were empty so we got to totally enjoy a slow meander...it was REALLY cold out - in the spring I bet it is delightful to walk.

“Beautiful but coold!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

The city itself is beautiful, quaint, lots of nice places to eat, cafe's, and Notre Dame was beautiful. Also the Terrace Duffernin was quite a sight. But if you go in winter you will need snow boots! The streets and sidewalks are not cleared so you are wading through sleet and it will make your feet cold if your shoes are not waterproof. We had to buy new snow boots luckily there were some shops selling a good variety of those and were on sale.

“If you go in winter...”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

...wear sturdy boots and consider hiking poles. The streets and sidewalks are not cleared so they are treacherous. We managed to barely walk 2-3 blocks from our hotel. That made the trip very disappointing. We're sure there is a lot to see, but would not come back in the winter again because of the difficulty getting around.

“Just walk around”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Old Quebec is like a European city with winding roads, great shops, amazing restaurants, and lots of amazing Canadian history. Make sure you enjoy a guided walking tour to appreciate the history and sights - there is so much more the meets the eye.
