Explore Old Québec, the historic heart of French Canada and the capital of the province of Québec, with its narrow streets, stone buildings, and European feel and learn about the city's history and culture.

Visit Place Royale, often referred to as the birthplace of French America, and the beautiful Plains of Abraham, where the famous Battle of Québec between the French and English armies took place in the Seven Years’ War in 1759.

Then follow Avenue Royale through the traditional villages and farms of the Beaupre Coast, just north of Québec City to visit Montmorency Falls, a 272-foot (83-meter) waterfall on the Montmorency River (taller than Niagara Falls).

After the tour, there is ample time to explore Old Québec at leisure. The tour ends with a return trip to Montreal and hotel drop-off.

What a wonderful trip! Québec City is beautiful and charming. Our tour guide Katia was amazing. She had so much knowledge about Québec and took the time to get to know everyone in the group. She learned where everyone was from and was able to find a connection to Québec to almost everyone's place of origin. She was able to give the tour in English, French, and Spanish, which was great for our group of mixed language speakers. Serge was our driver, and he did an excellent job. He was very friendly and a great driver. Make sure to bring something to eat for the bus ride, as we left at 8:00am and didn't get to break for lunch until around 2:00pm. The driver does stop at a gas station half way there and also on the way back, but it's a short stop, just enough time for a washroom break. The guide and the driver will appreciate if you give them a tip, but they weren't pushy about it. Overall, I had a great time and would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see Quebec on a time crunch!

Grateful to our excellent driver/guide Norman. 92 in Montreal the day before, and it was cold and windy and rainy in Quebec. Kind of fun to experience. What a spectacular city! So much to learn, and our guides were bright and passionate. We are grateful for this trip. Merci!
The falls and the trip...
William_K, June 2023
The falls and the trip were beautiful. Quebec city itself had so much construction going on it was difficult to get to most places The syop times were so brief at each stop we didn't have time to actually enjoy and do much..
Amazing tour

This tour was the amazing, a lot to see and do. Katie (tour guide) was very friendly and she knows everything about Quebec history. My daughter and I really enjoyed the trip. 👍🏼👍🏼 highly recommend.
Beautiful and peaceful tour
Jim_M, May 2023
The bus driver was hilarious and very good. Quebec is very beautiful. The shops and towns were very quaint and peaceful with lots of beauty. Not enough time to shop and eat though. Needed about 4-5 hours for shopping in the quaint little towns.
A memorable experience!
Anna_H, May 2023
We really enjoyed our day trip to Quebec City. We met at the designated meeting point to board the bus but our driver, Serge, dropped us near our hotel at the end of the day. It was a long day (12 hours), but definitely worth it! We stopped at a gas station on the way there and back for food and toilets. I recommend bringing or buying snacks, as you don’t have time for a real meal until around 2pm. Both Serge and the Quebec City tour guide, Danielle, were prompt and professional. Would highly recommend this tour! Quebec City is beautiful.
Quebec City in a day
Lauren, May 2023
Quebec City is adorable and so clean! It reminds me of Monte Carlo because all of the buildings are in tip top shape although they are old! Loved the Fairmont Hotel! Just Gorgeous!! Had an amazing lunch at Le Conti, next to Fairmont Hotel!
Well organized trip. Good job from bus driver & guide.

We had a great time. Our tour guide and driver were both fantastic! Our tour was very well organized. They even thought of a stop along the way for bathroom break. Take a pillow to rest on the bus.

Liane_S, May 2023
We left 45 mins late . No even water offered and the couches chairs smell dirty. Our tour guide was good though.
A Cool Day in Quebec City
Chip_B, May 2023
Old Quebec City is beautiful and we wish we had more time to explore the sites. We enjoyed lunch at the Fairmont hotel. We had a poor weather day with 40 degrees (F) and a strong wind. The local guide ignored the fact that many in our group were freezing and continued long dialogues outside in exposed locations. This made the walking tour somewhat uncomfortable.
Excellent trip to Quebec City - highly recommended.
tba_t, May 2023
Place Royale and Chateau Frontenac were the highlights. Also having Roger tell the history of the city was fascinating - he was a fantastic guide who truly loves his job and it shows. You read and hear about the history in social studies, but seeing the actual places really brings it to life.
This travel experience...
Rigoberto_N, May 2023
This travel experience was great, event when was just a day that I took to visit Quebec was a very nací experience and I we have the chance to visit SIMO of the most representatives places in Quebec… with nice company and very nice explanation about the historical society and live there
Great way to visit Quebec...
WiHoon_J, May 2023
Great way to visit Quebec from Montreal. You first have some time with a guide to explain the history of Quebec (by 2:20 pm) and then he give you free tour time (about 3 and half hours).
