Québec City Guided Tours
Sights to See
Plains of Abraham
The Plains of Abraham are the site of the pivotal battle between the French and the English in 1759. Today, they are a vast public park in the heart of the city. Jogging and cross-country skiing, picnicking and concerts are on the agenda for visitors here.
413 years old and counting, Old Québec is unique in all of North America. Winding cobblestone streets and vintage architecture charm all who visit here. Whether you are people watching over a glass of wine in the Upper Town or having a café au lait in Place Royale in the Lower Town, you are as close to Europe as you can get to without crossing the Atlantic!
The Parliament Building stands proudly just to the west of the city walls, reminding us that Québec City is the capital of the province. Its spectacular architecture and that of the buildings that surround it make for a picturesque stroll for tourists and locals alike. The Tourny Fountain completes the scene and features in the postcard snapshots of this exquisite neighborhood.
In the 19th century, port authorities built the Louise Basin, a tideless harbor to facilitate the loading and unloading of small commercial vessels. Today, the Louise Basin is a place for visitors to walk casually by the water and watch the sailboats and pleasure craft as they bob gently in the breeze.
It would be impossible to pack more fun into the short stretch of boulevard known as the Grande Allée. Restaurants, bars, nightclubs and cafés line both sides of the street. A panoply of options for enjoying an evening out!
Québec City has by far the best-preserved ensemble of city fortifications north of Mexico. Walk the 4.6 kilometers of city wall that surround the Upper Town.
Just 15 minutes from the Old City, Montmorency Falls is higher than Niagara Falls and every bit as beautiful! Climb to the top via the 487 steps of the panoramic staircase or ride in style in the cable car. Either way, the view from the top is extraordinary!
The Beaupré Coast is the stretch of coastline between Montmorency Falls and St. Anne’s Basilica. Running its length is the scenic Avenue Royale, which takes tourists by villages and farmsteads where locals have been living off the land since the 17th century. Along the way, stop at a bakery or an art gallery, or take a moment to just soak in the history.
One of the first places farmed by the French settlers of the 17th century, Orleans Island has retained its rural, old-world feel. A trip to Orleans Island today is all about food! There are vineyards, cider houses, sugar shacks, a cheesemaker…the list goes on!
