Your Visit to Quebec City

Delight in the French charm of Old Quebec City, or the stunning scene of Parliament Hill. During your Guided Tour of Quebec, you’ll see the highlights of the city with a friendly and knowledgeable step-on-guide.

Old Quebec City

The Historic District of Quebec is comprised of the Upper Town and Lower Town. Located on a hill, the Upper Town was chosen by Samuel de Champlain in 1620 as the site of the Saint-Louis Fort. Since that day, it has remained the religious and administrative centre of the city.  At the foot of the hill is Lower Town made up of ancient districts built around Place Royale. Together the Upper and Lower Towns form an urban ensemble which is one of the best examples of a fortified colonial city. Delight in the beauty of the churches, converts and other monuments like the Citadel in the Upper Town and the Old Port in the Lower Town.

The Château Frontenac

Built in the Château style, the building is an imposing hotel with five brick and stone wings and a central tower built in seven stages between1892 and 1993. Overlooking the Saint Lawrence River, the hotel is generally recognized as the most photographed hotel in the world, in large part because of how it dominates the city’s skyline.
